Bobbi Kristina Brown, 21-year-old daughter of the late Whitney Houston, was found facedown, unconscious and allegedly drowned in her own bathtub on January 31.
Names have been offered up for investigation since, including longtime boyfriend Nick Gordon and aunt Pat Houston.
Reports say that Gordon has not been allowed beside Brown’s hospital bed as he is still highly suspected by Brown’s relatives to have had a hand in their niece’s condition. Although Gordon has not yet earned the sympathy of most of the Houston-Brown family, Brown’s cousin, Jerod Brown, recently came to Gordon’s defense via Facebook.

Jerod posted,”For the record: Nick has cooperated with the police department, he has cooperated with my uncle Bobby’s request, he has given my family members as much information as he can.”
The statement followed Gordon’s recent appearance and interview with Dr. Phil who wrote that Gordon “has been exploited on national television with hidden cameras that he had no idea about. He has given Kristina CPR which is one of the reasons why she is not dead till this day. He has been ridiculed and accused without any concrete evidence, yet he still hasn’t gotten the chance to visit his girl.”
Brown’s family claims that Gordon might have “manipulated” Dr. Phil, the same way he has manipulated his girlfriend over the years.
Brown’s aunt, Leolah also accused Houston’s sister-in-law, Pat of being involved in Brown’s near drowning. TMZ reports that according to Leolah, she believed that Pat “has a lot to do with it. Whether it be her actual hand, I can’t say that right now. But I hold her accountable for what happened to my niece, Bobbi Kristina, because of what knowledge I have of her.”
Brown remains in a medically induced coma at the Emory University Hospital in Atlanta.
