BOBBI Kristina Brown ‘s lover Nick Gordon has described accusations that he was responsible for her death as “slanderous,” and has vowed to defend the impending lawsuit against him, his attorneys have said .
In amended court papers filed last Friday in Fulton County Superior Court in Georgia, Bobbi Kristina’s court-appointed representative claimed Gordon struck the aspiring singer and gave her a “toxic cocktail” shortly before she was found unconscious on Jan. 31.
The wrongful death suit alleges Gordon put Bobbi Kristina face down in a tub of cold water in her suburban Atlanta home, causing her to suffer brain damage.
The suit seeks at least $10 million in damages.
Gordon has never been charged in connection to Bobbi Kristina’s death.
Over the weekend, his attorneys said the suit is “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,” the 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.”
Baez led the defense team that represented Casey Anthony when she was acquitted for the murder of her 2-year-old daughter in 2011.
Bobbi Kristina, daughter of singers Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown, died on July 26 — nearly six months after being found unresponsive in a bathtub by Gordon and a friend. She was 22. She never regained consciousness and was moved to hospice. – NJ
