Bobby Brown's Attorney: 'We Believe We Know Who Harmed Bobbi Kristina'
Just days after the Fulton County Medical Examiner announced that Bobbi Kristina Brown's cause of death would remain sealed, her family spoke out about what happened to the 22-year-old.
The only daughter of Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown died July 26, six months after she was found facedown and unconscious in a bathtub at her Georgia home.
Christopher Brown spoke out on behalf of Bobby, saying the family is pleased that the records will remain private, while also accusing Bobbi Kristina's boyfriend Nick Gordon of having a hand in her demise.
"In regards to the civil litigation, we believe we know who harmed Bobbi Kristina Brown and his name is Nick Gordon," said Christopher Brown. "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 in damages. 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."
The statement continued, "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."
The message included a quote from Bobby, simply stating, "I look forward to having the Court hear the evidence in the civil lawsuit and hopefully the criminal action very soon."
Gordon's criminal lawyer, Jose Baez, has called the claims in the civil suit "slanderous and meritless."
Bobby made headlines on Sunday when he broke down in tears while being honored at the Heroes and Legends Awards on Sunday night in Beverly Hills.
