New photo of Bobbi Kristina Brown in her coffin was leaked online Tuesday, days after the aspiring actress was laid to rest, Radar Online reported. The photo surfaced amid an ongoing investigation into Bobbi Kristina's death as new details about her troubled relationship with Nick Gordon were revealed.
The image, which was reportedly priced at $100,000, is different from the hospice care photo that was published by The National Enquirer last week, according to Radar Online. The leaked photo reportedly shows the daughter of Bobby Brown and the late Whitney Houston dressed in a “burgundy brocade turtleneck,” which covered the scars of her tracheotomy and breathing tube. A placard, bearing her nickname, Krissy, is reportedly seen above her head. The Browns and the Houstons, who have been feuding since Bobbi Kristina's hospitalization, previously blamed each other for the hospice care photo leak. However, the two families have not spoken out about the latest photo that has surfaced on the Internet.
Bobbi Kristina, who died at the age of 22 on July 26 after remaining in an unresponsive state in several medical facilities since Jan. 31, was buried next to her mother on Aug. 3 at Fairview Cemetery in Westfield, New Jersey.
Meanwhile, a close friend of the Houston family reportedly said Tuesday that Bobbi Kristina “couldn’t see past” Gordon and wanted to marry him.
"When she was with Nick, she couldn't see past him," Sammy Tawil, who knew the Houstons for over two decades, said, according to OK! Magazine. "That was the only way she was vulnerable," he said, adding: "She'd show us the ring and say 'we're going to get married in the Hamptons."
Tawil also told Radar Online that Bobbi Kristina was “like a daughter” to him and he had never seen her “do drugs,” but admitted that “maybe she knew better not to in front of me.”
Tawil's comments come as new details of the troubled relationship emerge. Bobbi Kristina’s court-appointed conservator Bedelia Hargrove filed an amended lawsuit Friday that alleged Gordon gave her a "toxic cocktail" and then put her facedown in a bathtub.
Hargrove had originally filed the suit on June 24 in Fulton County Superior Court, alleging that the 25-year-old abused Bobbi Kristina and stole her money. The amended complaint reportedly adds wrongful death to the list of claims against Gordon, whose legal team is preparing a defense against the accusations.
Gordon, who was not allowed to see Bobbi Kristina during her hospitalization and was barred from attending her funeral service, revealed last week that he will host a private ceremony to remember and honor his girlfriend.
