Gordon's lawyers are calling the lawsuit claims 'slanderous and meritless'

Nick Gordon and his team of lawyers are fighting back against an amended complaint issued by Bobbi Kristina Brown's court-appointed conservator that claims he was the cause of her wrongful death.

 

In court documents filed Tuesday, Gordon's lawyers denied allegations of physical abuse and any control put on Bobbi Kristina to limit her interactions with others in order to "benefit from her wealth." The response describes the claims as "slanderous and meritless."

 

The complaint also claimed Gordon gave Bobbi Kristina a "toxic cocktail" that rendered her unconscious and ultimately led to her drowning. Gordon has denied ever providing said cocktail, but did admit to "[going] out on the night in question, that he reviewed video footage and then had an argument with Ms. Brown and that he then changed clothes."

Bobbi Kristina was found unconscious in a bathtub in her Atlanta-area home on Jan. 31 and spent nearly six months in a medically induced coma and in hospice care. She died July 26 in Georgia.

 

Gordon's response also claims he tried to administer CPR at the time of the medical emergency, but his efforts were unsuccessful.

"Defendant admits that he tried to 'wake up' Ms. Brown and attempted to get her to react and that he performed CPR on her, and Defendant further admits that others unsuccessfully attempted to resuscitate Ms. Brown," the documents state.

 

Gordon is facing a multi-million lawsuit from Bobbi Kristina's estate over claims of physical abuse and theft. He has assembled a legal time which includes Jose Baez, best known as the defense attorney in the case against Casey Anthony. He's also enlisted the help of TJ Ward, a private investigator who worked on the search for Natalee Holloway.
