“In regards to the civil litigation, we believe we know who harmed Bobbi Kristina Brown and his name is Nick Gordon,” read a new statement from Christopher Brown of Brown & Rosen LLC, per E! News. “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 Dollars 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 continues, “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. ”
The lawyer explains, “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.”
Bobby Brown added, “I look forward to having the Court hear the evidence in the civil lawsuit and hopefully the criminal action very soon.”
Gordon has most recently filed a response to a lawsuit filed by Bobbi Kristina’s estate administrator that accuses him of “wrongful death.” In the documents, Gordon denies ever physically abusing his girlfriend, calling the accusations “scandalous” and “improper.” He also denies any involvement with her death and says he “intends to expose [the wrongful death allegation] for what it is: a fictitious assault against the person who loved Krissy most.”
Bobbi Kristina died at just 22 years old on July 26, six months after she was found facedown and unresponsive in her bathtub.
