Bobbi Kristina Brown’s aunt, Leolah Brown, claimed that Pat Houston had “a lot to do” with the 22-year-old’s current condition. In an interview with TMZ, Leolah also slammed Bobbi Kristina’s boyfriend Nick Gordon.
Leolah claimed that someone had intended to drown Bobbi Kristina, who was found unresponsive in a bathtub at her home in Atlanta on Jan. 31, following which she was hospitalized and remains in a medically induced coma. Leolah said that she does not trust Pat Houston, who is married to Whitney Houston’s brother Gary and is the administrator of the late singer’s $20 million estate, calling her a “manipulator" and "a money-hungry beast." Last week, Bobbi Kristina's cousin Jerod Brown also held Pat responsible for her sister’s condition.
"I believe that she has a lot to do with it. Whether it be her actual hand, I can't say that right now," Leolah said in a video, published Sunday by TMZ. "But I hold her accountable for what happened to my niece, Bobbi Kristina, because of what knowledge I have of her, she said, adding: "It was someone's intention to put [Bobbi Kristina] where she is right now. That I do believe."
In the latest video, Leolah also states: “Nick is manipulating Dr. Phil just like he manipulated my niece Bobbi Kristina.” Leolah’s comments came a week after she publicly claimed that Gordon is under investigation for the “attempted murder” of his girlfriend.
“His habits and his actions are not conducive nor are they consistent with anyone that is concerned for somebody,” Leolah said, speaking about Gordon's feud with Bobbi Kristina's father, Bobby Brown.
On Wednesday, Gordon appeared on the “Dr. Phil” show, along with his mother, and talked about his anguish over his girlfriend’s condition. He also admitted to substance abuse, while his mother claimed that the 25-year-old had tried to commit suicide.
Meanwhile, Jerod took to Facebook on Sunday to defend Gordon after the latter was accused by Leolah of being “guilty.”
“Nick has cooperated with the police department, he has cooperated with my uncle Bobby's request, He has given my family members as much information as he can, he has been exploited on national television with hidden cameras that he had no idea about,” Jerod wrote, adding that it was because Gordon performed cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) in a bid to revive her as he waited for paramedics to arrive that the aspiring actress "is not dead till this day."
