Bobbi Kristina Brown’s boyfriend Nick Gordon has been accused of injecting her with a toxic cocktail prior to the incident that led to her coma and eventual death.
According to court documents obtained by WSB-TV in Atlanta, Georgia, lawyers for Brown’s estate allege that Gordon and Brown had engaged in “a violent altercation,” after which Gordon “injected her with a toxic mixture” and left her unconscious in a water-filled bathtub.
Furthermore, her lawyers allege that Gordon changed his clothes after the squabble to cover up the incident, and that he also received $40,000 to allow a magazine to photograph him at Brown’s gravesite.
Bobbi Kristina, daughter of singers Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown, was found unconscious in a bathtub in her home on Jan. 31. She died at the age of 22 after being placed in a medically induced coma for nearly six months.
The latest documents filed by her lawyers were in response to a motion filed by Gordon asking the court to stop the lawsuit that claims he caused the “wrongful death” of her girlfriend.
In the original lawsuit, there has been no mention of an injection. The lawsuit has been amended after Brown’ death on July 26 and it seeks $10 million in damages.
People magazine reported that Gordon’s attorneys slammed the amended lawsuit, saying the new accusations are “slanderous and meritless.”
Gordon’s lawyers denied the claims of toxic cocktail and that he abused her.
Us Weekly reported that Gordon’s team filed a stay of motion with the intent of ending of the civil case after reports emerged that the district attorney in Georgia is convening a grand jury with the intention of charging Gordon with murder.
It is unclear whether Brown’s death has been declared homicide by the medical examiner’s office. The results of her autopsy have not been released to the public reportedly because of a possible danger to witnesses, WSB-TV noted.
