Los Angeles, June 25 (IANS) Bobbi Kristina Brown, who has been in a hospital for months, has been moved to hospice care. A suit has also been filed against Nick Gordon for inflicting domestic abuse on the reality TV personality-singer.
Earlier this year, she was found unresponsive in a bathtub at her Georgia home.
Her aunt Pat Houston announced the development in a statement issued on Wednesday, reports aceshowbiz.com.
“Despite the great medical care at numerous facilities, Bobbi Kristina Brown’s condition has continued to deteriorate. As of today, she has been moved into hospice care. We thank everyone for their support and prayers. She is in god’s hands now,” Houstan said.
Meanwhile, Bobbi’s court-appointed conservator Bedelia C. Hargrove filed a complaint against Bobbi’s partner Nick Gordon, accusing him of domestic abuse and for stealing $11,000 from her.
Hangrove is reportedly seeking $40 million in punitive damages for Kristina on allegations including assault, battery, intentional infliction of emotional distress and conversion.
“Today I filed a lawsuit on behalf of Bobbi Kristina Brown. I filed this lawsuit to pursue justice on behalf of Bobbi Kristina Brown. No human being, male or female, should endure what Bobbi Kristina endured,” Hangrove said in a statement.
“Pat Houston and Bobby Brown have done all they can to take care of Bobbi Kristina since this terrible tragedy occurred. I have worked closely with both of them and we all want the very best for Bobbi Kristina. This lawsuit represents our collective efforts to get justice for Bobbi Kristina,” she said
In the complaint, Hangrove claimed Gordon “assumed the position” of Bobbi’s boyfriend after she inherited a “substantial sum” following her mother’s death in 2012.
She insisted that Gordon was very controlling as “part of a scheme to benefit from her wealth” and then would “routinely (transfer) a large portion of Brown’s funds into an account controlled solely by him, without the consent or authorization of Brown”.
Gordon also allegedly “often answered Brown’s personal cell phone, would not allow her to make appointments without his approval, and manipulated her bank relationship so that he could access her money”.
The complaint alleged that Gordon domestically abused Bobbi, “including punching her in the face, knocking out a front tooth and dragging her upstairs by her hair”.
According to the complaint, Bobbi had planned to meet up with someone on the day she was found unresponsive in bathtub to discuss the revelation that Nick “was not the man she thought he was”.
But Bobbi, the paper stated, never made it to the meeting and instead became “embroiled in a loud argument with Nick at her Georgia home, which ended with her “face down in a bathtub, with her mouth swollen and another tooth knocked out” and being diagnosed with “global and irreversible brain damage”.
