Bobbi Kristina Brown’s boyfriend Nick Gordon ‘tried to save her’, say lawyers

Gordon's lawyers claim prosecutors are trying to make him out to be a murderer

The lawyers of Bobbi Kristina Brown‘s former boyfriend Nick Gordon have revealed that he ‘tried to save’ her life after finding her unresponsive in a bathtub.

According to Sky News, Gordon’s lawyers have requested that prosecutors end speculation over the death of the late Whitney Houston‘s daughter and rule out any wrongdoing, as speculated by her family in a lawsuit.

His lawyers believe he has been wrongly-targeted in the criminal investigation into her death after the family’s lawsuit accused Gordon of giving Bobbi Kristina “a toxic cocktail rendering her unconscious and then put[ting] her face down in a tub of cold water,” and seeking ten million dollars in damages.

Lawyers Joe Habachy and Jose Baez have since said in a joint statement: “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 Fulton County District Attorney’s office has tried to make Nick a murderer despite having clear and convincing evidence that Bobbi Kristina’s death was nothing more than a tragic accident.”

They added: “The truth is that no one loved Bobbi Kristina more than Nick and no one has suffered more as a result of her death than Nick.”

The news comes following Bobbi Kristina’s autopsy results last week, where it wasn’t confirmed whether her death was an accident or an intentional act such as suicide or homicide.

However, according to a report by The Guardian, the medical examiner noted that “Bobbi Kristina Brown’s face being immersed in water, along with drug intoxication, led to her death last year”.

Her passing came three years after Houston drowned in the bathtub of her Beverly Hills hotel, aged just 48.
