Gordon was a controversial figure throughout the investigation into Bobbi Kristina Brown’s death. According to WSB-TV, an amended lawsuit against Nick Gordon from 2015 claims that he gave Brown a “toxic cocktail” and placed her facedown in the bathtub the day she was found.

The amended lawsuit adds that Gordon came home on January 31 after “being out all night on a cocaine and drinking binge.”

The lawsuit, according to WSB-TV, also states that Gordon would “transfer large amounts of money from Brown into a bank account controlled solely by him.” The outlet continues, “Another claim says Gordon physically abused Brown, ‘including punching her in the face, knocking out a front tooth, and dragging her upstairs by her hair.'”
