News of the lawsuit comes just hours after Pat Houston, Bobbi Kristina’s aunt and co-guardian, released a statement saying Brown had been placed in hospice.
In the new lawsuit, Gordon is alleged to have physically abused Bobbi Kristina and is also accused of stealing “in excess of $11,000 from Brown’s bank account while she was in the hospital.”
The lawsuit was filed in Fulton County Superior Court Wednesday by Atlanta attorney Bedelia Hargrove who was appointed conservator and “responsible for Krissi’s assets, including her likeness, rights and legal claims,” a statement from the family’s attorneys said at the time.
For months Gordon has pleaded with the Brown family to let him see Bobbi Kristina, but the family has continually refused. Hargrove is now seeking $10 million in punitive damages against Gordon over the alleged abuse.
The lawsuit claims in January 2014 Gordon “perpetuated the fraud that he had married Brown, though in fact he never did so.”
“The misrepresentation that (Gordon) was Brown’s ‘husband’ was used to control Brown and limit with whom she could interact,” the suit claims.
The lawsuit alleges that Gordon would transfer large amounts of money from Brown into a bank account controlled solely by him.
Another claim says Gordon physically abused Brown, “including punching her in the face, knocking out a front tooth, and dragging her upstairs by her hair.”
“Brown had confided to someone that (Gordon) was not the man she thought he was,” the suit said.
The suit says Brown was supposed to meet with that person the same day she was found facedown in a bathtub inside her Roswell home.
In May, Bobby Brown, Bobbi Kristina’s father, and Pat Houston were named co-guardians of the 22-year-old. A third party was granted authority to handle Bobbi Kristina’s financial matters.

This is a never ending saga and it’s sad that it seems to be all about dollars and cents and not really about the tragedy at hand.
Whatever the case, I seriously doubt that Nick Gordon has 10 Million dollars and this lawsuit seems to be an attempt to take attention from the real issue of how Bobbi Kristina’s own family dropped the ball and it seems to have cost them her life.
Why blame Nick now? He was good enough to have on that reality show. If things were as bad as they’re now saying, why didn’t any of them take a stand against him years ago??
I don’t know any of the answers and I doubt that there are any, but it’s disheartening to see monetary lawsuits flying when Bobbi Kristina is still technically on her ‘deathbed’ with no hope of recovering.
