The latest allegations against Nick Gordon are so ridiculous as to border on the absurd, especially since there’s no tangible evidence to support the accusations being made. In fact, on Aug. 11, USA Today calls the amended lawsuit wrongful lawsuit recently filed by Bobbi Kristina’s conservator, a “sketchy theory” that has left “more questions than answers.”
It appears that someone is trying their best to frame Nick Gordon for Bobbi Kristina’s death, despite the Medical Examiner’s preliminary autopsy report which stated that no significant injuries were found on Bobbi Kristina’s body and there was no evidence of foul play. The wrongful death lawsuit alleges that Nick Gordon viciously beat Bobbi Kristina drugged her, and held her face down underwater until she drowned.
According to Fox News on Aug. 10, Nick’s legal team calls the lawsuit “slanderous and meritless”, adding that “it’s shameful that such baseless allegations have been presented publicly” Nick’s attorneys Joe Habachy and Jose Baez said in a statement.
“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.”
Someone seems determined to hold Nick Gordon responsible for Bobbi Kristina’s death. Unfazed by the initial report from the Medical Examiner, which indicated that Bobbi Kristina had not been beaten and that there was no sign of the rumored “missing tooth,” Nick Gordon’s accusers decided to try another approach. It was widely reported that prosecutors were trying to charge Nick with involuntary manslaughter. They alleged that prior to the bathtub incident, Nick helped Bobbi Kristina get and use drugs, knowing she would indulge to the point of losing consciousness. They further tried to claim that he, deliberately left her in harm’s way.
But they overlooked some important facts:
Bobbi Kristina was a known drug user. A number of people close to her have gone on record as stating that Bobbi Kristina would willingly use whatever drugs were put before her or were available to her at the time.
As for Nick helping Bobbi Kristina get drugs, he didn’t have to, since she had a source of her own who could supply her with whatever drug she desired. Her ex-boyfriend, a known drug dealer named Max Lomas was present at the townhouse when Bobbi Kristina’s body was found. In fact, it was Max who allegedly found her in the tub.
Furthermore, it has been documented that Bobbi Kristina had a history of falling asleep in the bathtub after partying and taking drugs. Law enforcement officials reported that on the night before Whitney Houston died, Bobbi Kristina ran a bath in her room at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, fell asleep in the tub and woke up to find her room flooded with water. She was rushed to the hospital for acute alcohol poisoning the next day.
Bobbi Kristina’s family and her conservator seem to be in denial of these facts.
The wrongful death lawsuit against Nick Gordon claims that video footage revealed all the brutal details surrounding Bobbi Kristina’s death and show exactly how Nick was involved. However police viewed this video footage during the initial investigation. Nick’s lawyers filed a restraining order on his behalf to block police from obtaining surveillance camera footage from the townhouse where Bobbi Kristina and Nick lived. But when Nick found out, he instructed his attorneys to withdraw the restraining order so police could view the surveillance video and clear his name.
If Nick insisted on allowing police to view the surveillance video against his attorney’s advice, obviously he had nothing to hide. If the video footage showed the kind of brutal attack the wrongful lawsuit claims, Nick would have been arrested and charged 6 months ago.
Someone is intent on framing Nick Gordon for Bobbi Kristina’s death although it’s not quite clear why. It’s also interesting to note the timing of all these accusations. None of these allegations were made while there was still a chance that Bobbi Kristina would recover from her coma, refute their claims and set the record straight.
At this point the allegations made by Bobbi Kristina’s conservator are just words on a court document with nothing to back them up. From the very beginning of the Bobbi Kristina tragedy, the Houstons and Browns have engaged in a vicious smear campaign against Nick Gordon. Now Bobbi Kristina’s conservator seems to be following their lead. Despite the lack of evidence, they all seem to be hell-bent on framing Nick for Bobbi Kristina’s death. If they’re not careful, they’re going to find themselves on the receiving end of a huge defamation suit.
