Bobbi Kristina Brown was abused and fleeced by boyfriend Nick Gordon, a new lawsuit is claiming, even as relatives made the heart-wrenching decision to move Brown to end-of-life hospice care.
The New York Daily News reported
that Whitney Houston’s 22-year-old daughter, who has been in a coma since Jan. 31 when she was found floating face down in a bathtub, is not recovering from her injuries.
"Despite the great medical care
at numerous facilities, Bobbi Kristina Brown’s condition has continued to deteriorate," Aunt Pat Houston said in a statement quoted by the News. "As of today, she has been moved into hospice care. We thank everyone for their support and prayers. She is in God’s hands now."
The news came as WXIA in Atlanta reported
a civil suit was filed on Wednesday against Gordon claiming "substantial bodily harm" to Brown, citing incidents in which he punched her in the face, knocked out a front tooth and dragged her up stairs by her hair.
The suit was filed by Bedelia Hargrove, who was Brown’s court-appointed conservator, WXIA said
. In the paperwork filed in Fulton County, Georgia, Hargrove claimed that Gordon manipulated Brown, taking control of her money and running her life.
"Just prior to January 31, 2015, Brown had confided to someone that Defendant was not the man she thought he was and set up a time on January 31, 2015 to meet with this person to further discuss this revelation," the lawsuit said. "Brown, however, never made it to the meeting. Instead, on the morning of January 31, 2015, Brown became embroiled in a loud argument with Defendant at her townhome. The loud argument ended and Brown was later found unresponsive and unconscious, face down in a bathtub, with her mouth swollen and another tooth knocked out."
In a statement, Hargrove said she worked with Bobby Brown and Houston to "get justice for Bobbi Kristina."
