Bobbi Kristina Brown’s former boyfriend Nick Gordon tried to save her life after finding her unresponsive in a bathtub, his lawyers have said.
Sky news reported the lawyers have called on prosecutors to end speculation that the death of late pop singer Whitney Houston’s daughter resulted in any wrongdoing on Gordon’s part.
They said he is being wrongly targeted in the criminal investigation into her 2015 death.
Lawyers Joe Habachy and Jose Baez said:
“The truth is that Nick tried to save Bobbi Kristina’s life.
“The truth is that Nick cooperated with law enforcement”
since day one.
The conservator of Bobbi Kristina’s estate has filed a lawsuit accusing Gordon of causing her death and stealing from her bank account while she was in a coma before her death last July.
Gordon says he was prevented from visiting her during this six-month period.
Prosecutors have said the investigation into the death of Bobbi Kristina is ongoing but they have not revealed the names of who they might be investigating.
Bobbi Kristina was 22 when she drowned in the bathtub in her home in Atlanta, Georgia, last year.
Autopsy results released last week did not say whether her death was due to an accident or an intentional act such as suicide or homicide.
The medical examiner recorded the cause of her death as undetermined. Her death came just three years after her mother
drowned in the bathtub of a Beverly Hills hotel, aged 48.
