Many people in Illinois and all around the world were troubled by Bobbi Kristina Brown’s death, but no one is more distraught than her father, Bobby Brown. He was struggling with Whitney Houston’s death and then was devastated by their daughter’s death, but he believes he knows who is responsible for the loss of both women.
Brown holds Bobbi Kristina Brown’s partner, Nick Gordon, responsible for her and Whitney Houston’s deaths, and he is so certain that he has recently filed a $10 million wrongful death lawsuit against Gordon. Brown says that Gordon was the only person who was present at the time both women were found. Since Whitney and Bobbi were both found in a similar manner, Brown believes Gordon killed them.
Gordon’s mother says that Gordon tried to give Whitney CPR, but was unsuccessful. Gordon has not responded publicly about the lawsuit, but he did address the media in April about Bobbi’s miscarriages. He spoke of their desire to have children, but concluded by saying that the miscarriages really shook Bobbi and that they were planning to wait until they were married to try again. Gordon also spoke out at the time of Houston’s death in 2012. Then, he said that Bobbi was mixing pills and that her drug habit was getting out of hand. The impending lawsuit will probably shed more light on the mysterious circumstances surrounding Bobbi Kristina Brown’s death.
A wrongful death lawsuit is predicated upon negligence. Such a civil lawsuit can be successful even if no criminal charges are filed against the defendant or if the defendant is acquitted. Many states have statutes that set forth the types and amounts of damages that can be sought in such a lawsuit, and an attorney can provide guidance in this regard.
