Lawyers acting on behalf of Nick Gordon have asked for the lawsuit filed by Bobbi Kristina Brown’s conservator to be dismissed.
Nick was banned from seeing Whitney Houston’s daughter, who passed away at the end of July, after she was found unconscious in a bath tub in January.
In a lawsuit filed in Fulton County Superior Court, Atlanta, on June 24, Nick was accused of assault, battery, intentional infliction of emotional distress, and transferring money from Bobbi Kristina’s account into his own without permission.
The suit was later amended upon her death to also add in the wrongful death allegations, which claimed Nick gave her a “toxic cocktail” and then put her face down in the bath of cold water.
Nick furiously denied the allegations, calling the lawsuit “slanderous and merit-less”.
His legal team has now asked for the lawsuit to be dismissed and denied most of the allegations in the complaint, including physically abusing Bobbi Kristina and also that he “perpetrated the fraud that he had married” the late star.
Part of the papers, obtained by Atlanta’s 11 Alive, say there is no proof of the “several false and criminal and frivolous claims against the Defendant.”
However, they do show that Nick admits he went out on the night she was found unconscious, that they had argued when he got home and “that he then changed clothes”.
It also claims he tried to administer CPR on Bobbi after she was discovered by someone else.
Bobbi Kristina passed away at the end of July after losing her six-month battle for life. She was just 22-years-old.
