Bobbi Kristina Brown’s cause of death has been determined, but the autopsy report has been sealed amid the continuing murder investigation implicating boyfriend Nick Gordon.
The Fulton County (Georgia) Medical Examiner knows exactly what killed Bobbi Kristina but can’t reveal it because a judge has ordered the autopsy sealed, sources told TMZ Sept. 26. Bobbi Kristina, the daughter of Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown, died July 26, 2015, six months after being hospitalized for a near-drowning in her Georgia home.
In a $10 million wrongful death lawsuit filed in August, Bobbi Kristina’s estate claims her death was caused by a “toxic cocktail” boyfriend Nick Gordon gave her that led to her drowning. Bobbi Kristina’s estate claims Nick viciously beat Brown in the face and knocked out her tooth in the hours before she was found unconscious in her bathtub, Celebrity Health & Fitness reported.
Gordon allegedly called Bobbi Kristina a “wh*re and b*tch” before the brutal beat down and then poisoned her with a lethal alcoholic cocktail. Witnesses say Nick was arguing with Bobbi Kristina on Jan. 31 when he lunged at her while she was sitting on a couch, causing the couch to break, and throwing Brown to the floor.
“Defendant then demanded that she go upstairs,” the lawsuit reads. “Bobbi Kristina began crawling on the floor because she could not stand up due to the injuries Defendant inflicted. Defendant then dragged her upstairs by her hair and threw her in the master bedroom, leaving blood on the walls of the staircase.”
According to the complaint, the argument started after Gordon had come home following an all-night “cocaine and drinking binge.” Nick allegedly got furious after reviewing surveillance camera footage and listening to Bobbi Kristina’s private phone conversations.
“He began screaming and calling her a wh*re and b*tch,” said witnesses. After arguing for 30 minutes, Gordon gave Bobbi Kristina “a toxic cocktail rendering her unconscious, and then put her face down in a tub of cold water, causing her to suffer brain damage,” the lawsuit reads.
Nick: I Did Not Punch, Slap or Kill Bobbi
Fifteen minutes later, one of the guests went to check in on Bobbi Kristina and found her unconscious in her bathtub. Witnesses claim Brown’s mouth was swollen from the beating and a tooth was hanging loose from her mouth.
“When the Defendant came into the master bedroom, the very first thing Defendant did was let the cold water out of the bathtub and later shouted, ‘Clean up, clean up,'” the lawsuit reads. “Others began mouth-to-mouth resuscitation, to no avail. Defendant then began to slap her saying, ‘wake up,’ and also started performing CPR between slaps.”
Gordon denies allegations that he ever hit, slapped, punched or robbed Bobbi Kristina. In a statement, Nick’s defense lawyers called the $10 million wrongful death lawsuit “slanderous and meritless.”
“Nick has been heartbroken and destroyed over the loss of his love and it’s shameful that such baseless allegations have been presented publicly,” said his attorneys. “Nick has engaged civil counsel and intends to defend the lawsuit vigorously and expose it for what it is: a fictitious assault against the person who loved Krissy most.”
