Nick Gordon Gave Bobbi Kristina Brown “Toxic” Injection, Claims Conservator
As Gossip Cop has reported, conservator Bedelia Hargrove sued Gordon in June, alleging he violently beat Brown hours before she was found face down in a bathtub inside their home. Following Brown’s death, the claims were amended to form a wrongful death lawsuit, with Hargove alleging Gordon gave Brown a “toxic cocktail.” Now new legal documents get even more specific.
In the latest court papers, Hargove claims Brown “died due to a violent altercation with Defendant after which he placed her in the bathtub unconscious, after he injected her with a toxic mixture.” It’s unclear what that material was. The new allegations come as Hargrove battles Gordon’s camp over their request to stop discovery, or the gathering of evidence.
Hargrove points out that Gordon has willingly done an interview for “Dr. Phill” and was allegedly paid $40,000 to be photographed at Brown’s grave, and yet “asks this court to relieve him of his legal responsibility to participate in discovery in this case.” It’s further argued that Gordon “never sought court intervention to preserve any purported Fifth Amendment privilege nor sought to avail himself of any of the court process [which] would have delayed or preventing his having to answer any questions,” but now “some four months following the filing of the complaint… the defendant brazenly requests the court to block discovery.”
And that’s not all. In addition to rejecting the insinuation from Gordon’s team that there is a publicity campaign against him when he himself has done so many things publicly, one of the harshest sections features Hargove responding to the offensive terminology that was used in their filing:
“The Defendant’s reference to ‘lynching’ as he complains about the public comments others have made about him is insensitive and inflammatory. Unless he is totally unfamiliar with the history of lynching in America, the Defendant should use some other metaphor when describing the effects he claims comments made about his potential involvement in this case have had on him…The reference to lynching is yet another example of the Defendant’s pandering to the press in the hopes that he and his counsel will be widely quoted so that his popularity will rise when he seeks to secure the inevitable book deal – which he may already have. The use of this kind of rhetoric is not only offensive but sanctionable.”
Hargrove also fights back against Gordon’s insistence that he cannot financially afford such a legal battle, pointing to the aforementioned photo payment and his multiple lawyers, and even suggests that an investigation “may reveal a cache of other resources to pay the judgment against him if one is obtained.” In the meantime, criminal charges are still a possibility, and Brown’s autopsy remains sealed so as not to harm any potential case.
