New Lawsuit Claims Nick Gordon Beat Up, Stole From Bobbi Kristina Brown

The music scion's conservator paints a gruesome picture in court docs.

As Bobbi Kristina Brown was moved into hospice care to spend her final days in the peace and comfort of her own home, her conservator Bedelia Hargrove is seeking justice against the man she believes is responsible for her condition.
Hargrove filed a lawsuit against Brown's estranged boyfriend Nick Gordon on Wednesday, claiming Gordon physically abused her, threatened her and stole tens of thousands of dollars from her. Hargrove has filed the suit on behalf of Brown's father Bobby Brown and aunt Pat Houston, who hold joint responsiblity over her affairs.

The court docs paint a greusome picture of life at home for the young couple. According to Hargrove, Gordon dragged Brown up a flight of stairs by the hair and knocked out several of her teeth the night before she was found unconscious in her bathtub. She also alleges that Brown had begun to grow fearful of Gordon, telling a friend he was "not the man she thought he was." She reportedly set up a meeting with a confidant on January 31 — a meeting sadly never made. Brown was hospitalized on January 30.
"No human being, male or female, should endure what Bobbi Kristina endured,” Hargrove said in a statement. “Pat Houston and Bobby Brown have done all they can to take care of Bobbi Kristina since this terrible tragedy occurred. I have worked closely with both of them and we all want the very best for Bobbi Kristina. This lawsuit represents our collective efforts to get justice for Bobbi Kristina. We pray that justice will be done for her and that it will be swift,” her statement concluded.
Hopefully the near-constant drama surrounding the late Whitney Houston's only daughter will subside at this critical time, so her loved ones can focus on their prayers.
Brown's life may have been tragically unstable, but she does come from a legacy of once-in-a-generation talent. Watch Deborah Cox talk about Whitney's legacy below: is your #1 source for Black celebrity news, photos, exclusive videos and all the latest in the world of hip hop and R&B music.
