Leolah Brown, Bobbi Kristina Brown’s aunt, freely said on Saturday that her niece’s beau, Nick Gordon, is under scrutiny for “attempted murder” regarding the 22-year-old’s drowning.
Brown posted on Facebook after it was uncovered that Gordon would be tuning in an intercession that will be broadcast amid a scene of The Dr. Phil Show on March 11. A source told Individuals that a “distraught” Brown had already checked in to rehab following the appearance.
Brown’s post, which was coordinated to Dr. Phil, brought issue with the way that Gordon was showing up on the show.
“Nick Gordon is under investigation for the attempted murder of my niece Bobbi Kristina Brown,” she composed. “We have strong evidence of foul play. Until this investigation is completed by law enforcement, I would ask that you or anyone else not provide this individual a platform to spin this situation to his benefit.”
“If Nick Gordon does not have the courage to speak with my brother Bobby Brown and/or law enforcement about what happened the day my niece’s body was found in a bathtub, he does not deserve to have a platform to speak to anyone of your caliber until this investigation is concluded,” Brown added.
Police had beforehand affirmed to PEOPLE that they have dispatched an investigation concerning the Jan. 31 drowning of Bobbi Kristina, yet they didn’t affirm if Gordon was specifically under scrutiny.
Roswell Police Chief Rusty Grant said that the police are “going to follow the evidence and see where it leads us.”
Gordon’s quarrel with Bobbi Kristina’s family – and particularly, Bobby Brown –intensified in late February when he took to Twitter to request that Bobby permit him to see Bobbi Kristina in the clinic.
Bobby’s attorneys terminated back at Gordon, saying that he had neglected to meet the terms of a conceivable visit, which apparently included clarifying the circumstances encompassing Bobbi Kristina’s drowning. Gordon’s lawyers guaranteed that Bobby couldn’t promise access to Bobbi Kristina, so they had exhorted Gordon to not meet those conditions.
“Per his own words, Mr. Brown has only ‘offered an opportunity to potentially meet with Bobbi Kristina’ if Nick were to meet certain conditions, conditions that we, his attorneys, have advised him not to meet, particularly in light of Mr. Brown’s inability to guarantee access.”
A family source already told PEOPLE that “foul play is being investigated” including “drug use and possibly cover up to remove evidence from the crime scene.”
TMZ gave an account of Feb. 6 that Max Lomas, a companion who was with Gordon when they found Bobbi Kristina lethargic in a bathtub, had seen Gordon cleaning blood stains.
Gordon and Bobbi Kristina first opened up to the world about their sentiment in 2012, soon after Bobbi Kristina’s mom, Whitney Houston passed away. The pair dated on and off throughout the years and Brown alluded to Gordon as her “husband” on social media. Be that as it may, Bobby’s legal advisers say that the two were never lawfully hitched.
A source near to the family portrayed Bobbi Kristina and Gordon’s relationship as “toxic” and “codependent.”
In any case, the source includes that Bobbi Kristina felt Gordon was the main individual she could trust, “so even though they argued, she always went back to him.”
Gordon’s legal advisor was occupied for interview.
