Some shocking charges are being leveled against Nick Gordon in a new lawsuit, and if the allegations are true, they are absolutely horrifying.
Bobbi Kristina Brown’s conservator, Bedelia Hargrove, filed a lawsuit accusing Gordon of intentional infliction of emotional distress, battery, assault, fraud and theft — and the details are incredibly sad.
In the suit, Hargrove states that Gordon misrepresented his relationship with Brown, stating they were married when they were not, to “control Brown and limit with whom she could interact” and “manipulated her bank relationship so that he could access her money” despite needing permission from her conservator to do so.
In fact, the suit alleges, in a “scheme to benefit from her wealth,” Gordon moved approximately $11,000 of Brown’s money into his own account while she lay in a coma.
Hargrove also says Gordon isolated Brown by answering her phone calls for her and forcing her to get his permission before scheduling appointments.
But the most horrifying accusation made in the suit is that Gordon “began to commit domestic violence on Brown, including punching her in the face, knocking out a front tooth, and dragging her upstairs by her hair.” According to the suit, Brown had a secret meeting planned with a trusted friend to talk about Gordon’s misdeeds on January 31 — but she never made it. Instead, she was found unresponsive in her bathtub with, according to the court papers, a swollen mouth and another tooth knocked out.
The suit demands “punitive damages in the amount of at least $40,000,000, or a minimum of $10,000,000 for each one of four counts — assault, battery, intentional infliction of emotional distress and conversion.”
“Today I filed a lawsuit on behalf of Bobbi Kristina Brown. I filed this lawsuit to pursue justice on behalf of Bobbi Kristina Brown. 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.”
Brown’s condition has deteriorated so far that the Houston family confirmed she has been moved to hospice.
