It’s such a sad story surrounding the daughter of Bobby Brown and Whitney Houston, Bobbi Kristina, as she has spent the past two months fighting for her life. We watched her world turn upside down after the passing of her mother, Whitney Houston, and then we got the tragic news of her health struggles earlier this year.

Her sad story continues to unfold as a lawsuit was started against her boyfriend/brother, Nick Gordon. The civil lawsuit makes claims that Gordon physically abused Bobbi and even stole money from her. Gordon’s shaky relationship became apparent after he was denied visitation to Bobbi while she was in the hospital recovering.

From WXIA:

The lawsuit alleges that Gordon presented himself to be Brown’s surrogate brother prior to 2012. After Brown inherited a substantial sum of money (presumably from her mother, Whitney Houston’s estate), Gordon “assumed the position of Brown’s boyfriend.” Around Jan. 9, 2014, Gordon “perpetuated the fraud that he had married Brown, though in fact he never did so,” according to the lawsuit.

According to the lawsuit, Gordon used that “misrepresentation” as Brown’s husband to “control Brown and limit with whom she could interact.” The suit alleges that Gordon answered Brown’s cell phone, wouldn’t allow her to make appointments without his permission and “manipulated her bank relationship so that she could access her money.”

We’ll be watching closely to see how things unfold with this lawsuit. Prayers still with Bobbi Kristina and her family through this tough time.
