Update | Nick Gordon faces wrongful death lawsuit

Nick Gordon

The latest news surrounding the mysterious death of Bobbi Kristina Brown spiraled into a wrongful death suit against Nick Gordon. According to official court documents, Bobbi Kristina’s conservator, Bodella C. Hargrove filed a criminal lawsuit against Nick Gordon alleging that Gordon’s “tortious conduct caused, among other things, substantial bodily harm and ultimately caused the wrongful death of Bobbi Kristina Brown (“Bobbi Kristina”).” The document states that Gordon accused Bobbi Kristina of cheating, beat her up then gave her a “toxic cocktail” that rendered her unconscious. He then placed her face down in a bathtub filled with “cold” water causing brain damage.

Apparently, there are several witnesses that can confirm Gordon’s physically abusive behavior towards Bobbi Kristina and his equally controlling behavior, which appears to have escalated after Bobbi Kristina turned 21. Coincidentally, Bobbi Kristina received the first installment of her mother’s estate at age 21. Even though the court documents states it was Nick who perpetrated the fraudulent marriage to their social media followers. I believe Bobbi Kristina went along with it.  Bobbi Kristina’s father, Bobby Brown told the media that the couple never wed. Since Gordon was unable to visit Bobbi Kristina without her father’s consent, a privilege all married couples have, I believe the two were definitely never married.

What’s more, the court document stipulates that Bobbi Kristina was going to see a friend on January 31st, (one day after the incident) to discuss why she felt that Gordon, “was not the man she thought he was.”

Dr. Phil Interview

Personally, I wouldn’t put it past Gordon. He was acting very strange in his interview with Dr. Phil. All of us who has followed Dr. Phil over the years know that he is a sharp shooter and will call you out on your BS, if he notices it. Gordon wouldn’t give Dr. Phil a chance to assess the situation because he kept leaving the set.  And, I’m sure Dr. Phil was caught off guard by Gordon’s bizarre behavior and as a therapist wanted to help him. What started out as an interview, ended up as an intervention–a serious cry for help.

Side Note: Psychopaths are master manipulators and meticulous planners.  His performance in this particular clip reminds me of the Psycho Mom Killers who orchestrate grandiose, sometimes tear-jerking, performances in front of the camera to divert the public’s attention away from the victim to make the public feel sorry for them.

You know the scenario: A news anchor reports on the story, then announces that we are going to hear from the parent, herein called the “Martyr”. The Martyr stands in front of a podium; held tightly by an enabling family member; fear and anxiety begin to simmer; body temperature rises; sweat forms; fake tears attempts to flow:

“Please, Please. If you’re watching, please bring my baby back!!!”


When the Martyr realizes that they are not forming enough believable tears, they do something drastic like make a dramatic exit or collapse into the enablers arms. This happens so fast that most of us don’t even catch it unless somebody with an eagle eye points it out to us. If you’re cynical when it comes to missing children or accidental death cases, you say something like, “she/he did,” without giving the person a chance to prove innocence. This is one of the conditions of desensitization, everyone’s affected  by it in one way or another.

Are you thinking: What does this have to do with Nick Gordon and Bobbi Kristina? A lot. Faking distress is a strong commonality in a Martyr’s behavior. I truly do not think they can help themselves, but only time will tell whether or not he did it. From where I’m sitting there was a history of violence and a motive (money), which is a blueprint for murder.

This is an opinion blog and you definitely shouldn’t take my word for it. If you’ve read this far, you must be interested in the topic. Read the wrongful death claim and watch Dr. Phil’s video to form your own opinion. And feel free to comment and share on social media!
