In case there was ever any doubt about who Bobby Brown thinks is responsible for his daughter’s death, his lawyer has just spelled it out in no uncertain terms: her boyfriend.
Nick Gordon is the subject of a lawsuit hoping to, in part, hold him responsible for the death of Bobbi Kristina Brown, but her father has never really spoken about it one way or another. That all changed today.
In a lengthy statement from Brown’s lawyer, the flaws in Gordon’s defense are laid bare and it is made clear that he is the one and only person Brown believes is accountable.
“In regards to the civil litigation, we believe we know who harmed Bobbi Kristina Brown and his name is Nick Gordon,” said Brown’s lawyer, Christopher Brown, told People.
The biggest red flag? That Gordon keeps making legal moves to avoid a deposition — moves that have ultimately failed.
“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,” the attorney said.
“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.
“I am not shocked at the withdrawal, as we must keep in mind that Gordon filed a lawsuit to remove Bobby Brown as Bobbi Kristina’s guardian, only to withdraw that lawsuit in DeKalb County Probate Court once he was served with a deposition notice. He could have pressed forward with that lawsuit and told us under oath what he believed happened to Bobbi Kristina, but he chose to go in another direction.”
Bobby Brown himself added, “I look forward to having the Court hear the evidence in the civil lawsuit and hopefully the criminal action very soon.”
Gordon’s legal team has called the suit “slanderous and meritless.”
