Family claims Gordon physically abused Bobbi Kristina and stole from her inheritance

Bobbi Kristina Brown has been moved to hospice care after spending nearly five months in the hospital, confirmed the 22-year-old's aunt on Wednesday.


"Despite the great medical care at numerous facilities, Bobbi Kristina Brown's condition has continued to deteriorate," Pat Houston said in a statement. "As of today, she has been moved into hospice care. We thank everyone for their support and prayers. She is in God's hands now."


Bobbi Kristina, the only child of singers Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown, was found unresponsive in a bathtub in her Atlanta-area home on Jan. 31. She underwent surgery to replace her breathing tube in February and was later moved to a rehabilitation center where her health continued to decline.


On Wednesday, Bobbi Kristina's family filed a $10 million lawsuit against her longtime boyfriend Nick Gordon, claiming he physically abused her and took money from her inheritance.


According to court documents, the family claims Gordon regularly transferred money from Bobbi Kristina's account to his account while she was in a coma. At one point, Gordon allegedly transferred $11,000.


The suit states, "The misrepresentation that Defendant was Brown's 'husband' was used to control Brown and limit with whom she could interact. [Gordon] often answered Brown's personal cell phone, would not allow her to make appointments without his approval, and manipulated her bank relationship so that he could access her money."


The family also alleges Gordon beat Bobbi Kristina on several occasions. They believe he punched her in the face, knocked out a front tooth and dragged "her upstairs by her hair."


Gordon is accused of assault, battery, intentional infliction of emotional distress, unjust enrichment and conversion.
