Bobbi Kristina Brown may be gone, but the fight over who is responsible for her death continues. The late music scion's father, Bobby Brown, believes that her boyfriend, Nick Gordon, is to blame, and he's determined to make him pay.
"In regards to the civil litigation, we believe we know who harmed Bobbi Kristina Brown and his name is Nick Gordon," Brown's lawyer, Christopher Brown, said in a statement on Monday.
He continued: "Mr. Gordon made headlines when he filed his Motion to Dismiss the lawsuit pending in Superior Court that seeks to hold him responsible for 40 Million dollars in damages. However, the Motion was frivolous and instead of having it heard by the Court, he has chosen to withdraw the Motion, ending that matter so that he could avoid having to give his deposition which was scheduled for the day he withdrew the Motion. Mr. Gordon will now have to give his deposition under oath."
Bobbi Kristina, the only child of Bobby and the late Whitney Houston, died at the age of 22 on July 26, six months after she was found face down and unresponsive in her bathtub. Just weeks later, Bobbi Kristina's conservator, Bedelia Hargrove, filed a lawsuit on behalf of her estate accusing him of wrongful death.
"I look forward to having the Court hear the evidence in the civil lawsuit and hopefully the criminal action very soon," says Brown.
Last week, a judge ordered medical examiners to not release Bobbi Kristina's cause of death pending a criminal investigation into Gordon's involvement in her death.
