Nick Gordon didn’t kill Bobbi Kristina Brown–at least according to Nick Gordon and the team of lawyers he assembled to file paperwork to dismiss the wrongful death lawsuit he was hit with when Bobbi Kristina died on July 26th. His legal team calls the accusations against Nick Gordon “false” and “frivolous.”
“[The original lawsuit] contains several unsupported conclusory, untrue, criminal accusations that Defendant Nicholas Gordon committed acts that he simply did not do,” read part of the motion. “[The] plaintiff has not provided any evidence including but not limited to affidavits, police reports, indictments, or any other documentation to support baseless claims against Defendant Nicholas Gordon,” the papers read.
The original lawsuit filed by an executor for Bobbi Kristina Brown–before she died–accused Nick Gordon of having abused Bobbi Kristina in the days prior to her being discovered unconscious in a bathtub inside her Roswell, Georgia townhouse. Gordon was also accused of stealing money from her bank account while Bobbi Kristina was hospitalized in a coma.

When Bobbi Kristina Brown died, the lawsuit was amended.
“Bobbi Kristina was subsequently diagnosed with global and irreversible brain damage and died as a result of Defendant’s actions,” the amended paperwork read.
Nick Gordon’s attorneys, Joe Habachy and Jose Baez (Baez represented Casey Anthony in the murder trial of her toddler, Caylee Anthony), called the suit “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 said in a joint statement to ABC News. “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.”

Do you think Nick Gordon caused Bobbi Kristina’s death? Her father, Bobby Brown, and members of her mom, Whitney Houston’s family, believe so.
Will Nick wind up paying for the death of Bobbi Kristina Brown’s untimely death or will his legal team get the whole thing dismissed instead?
