Gordon Disputes Wrongful Death Lawsuit

Nick Gordon, the late Bobbi Kristina Brown’s partner, says a lawsuit filed by Brown’s estate lawyers accusing him of wrongful death, among other things, is false and slanderous.

The lawsuit accuses Gordon of giving Brown a “toxic cocktail” and putting her face-down in water in a bathtub. Gordon’s lawyers say the accusations are baseless, that their client is heartbroken and the suit is a fictitious assault.

The 22-year-old Brown died in hospice care July 26, months after she was found face-down and unresponsive in a bathtub in her suburban Atlanta townhome Jan. 31.

Gordon hasn’t been criminally charged. The Fulton County Medical Examiner’s Office has said an initial autopsy revealed “no significant injuries.”
