DID HE DO IT? Nick Gordon denies hurting Bobbi Kristina as family members suspect foul play.

ATLANTA — Nick Gordon is accused of beating up Bobbi Kristina Brown and stealing her money. The damning claims are laid out in a new lawsuit filed by Bobbi Kristina’s conservator.

And if she passes away, there are reports that he will be charged with murder.

The civil lawsuit was filed Wednesday,  the same day Bobbi Kristina’s family moved her to a hospice care and said that her life “is now in God’s hands.”

It alleges that Gordon’s behavior “caused, among other things, substantial bodily harm to Brown.”

It also claims that since Bobbi Kristina’s hospitalization in January, Gordon accessed her accounts and stole more than $11,000.

Gordon has not commented on the allegations but did tweet, “We keep praying.”


GROWING UP BOBBI K: Though her home life was often rocky – her parents messily divorced in 2007 – her mother worked hard to keep her daughter's life her top priority. "She supports me, she loves me, she gives me good mommy hugs," Bobbi, now 21, told Access Hollywood in 2011.

Bobbi Kristina, Whitney Houston’s 22-year-old daughter with singer Bobby Brown, was found unresponsive January 31 in a bathtub at her home in the Atlanta suburb of Roswell. The extent of her injuries was never made public.

Gordon was one of the two people who reportedly found her.

A family friend has said Gordon is not welcome in Brown’s hospital room, and he has not seen her since that night in January.

The lawsuit states that just prior to January 31, Bobbi Kristina told someone that Gordon was “not the man she thought he was” and set up a time to meet that person later in the day.

She never made it to the meeting, the suit claims.

“Instead, on the morning of January 31, 2015, Brown became embroiled in a loud argument with Defendant at her townhome. The loud argument ended and Brown was later found unresponsive and unconscious, face down in a bathtub, with her mouth swollen and another tooth knocked out,” it reads.

Police have said they are treating Brown’s case as a criminal investigation.

“Our department has completed the initial investigation. The investigative file, which is quite large, has been turned over to the Fulton County District Attorney’s Office for their review, and to determine if any criminal charges are appropriate,” Roswell Police Chief Rusty Grant told CNN.

When Whitney Houston died in 2012, she was also found in a bathtub. A coroner ruled her death an accidental drowning, with heart disease and cocaine use listed as contributing factors.

Police suspect drugs may also have played a role in Bobbi Kristina’s accident. Officers reportedly found a stash of drugs when they searched her home.
