Bobbi Kristina Brown’s boyfriend Nick Gordon’s Twitter account was found to be protected on Thursday, which means only his followers can view his tweets. In his last public message from his Twitter account on Wednesday, Gordon wrote: “We keep praying, she has fought hard this long don't give up hope.” Users will now also need permission to follow him on Twitter.
On Wednesday, Gordon was sued for allegedly abusing his girlfriend and stealing money from her bank account. With the latest suit, the Roswell Police Department is facing pressure to charge Gordon criminally. The department handed over the case to the Fulton County District Attorney’s Office on Wednesday to decide the charges, the Inquisitr reported.
However, it is not clear whether Gordon's move to protect his Twitter account is linked to the latest lawsuit.
The lawsuit was filed by Bobbi Kristina’s conservator, Bedelia C. Hargrove, in Fulton County Superior Court in Atlanta. It claimed that Gordon used to beat her and also stole thousands from her bank account. The suit said that in one of the incidents, Gordon dragged "her upstairs by her hair" and punched her in the face, knocking out a front tooth, TMZ reported.
The TMZ report added that Bobbi Kristina had set up a time to talk about the abuse to a friend on Jan. 31, but she was found facedown and unconscious in the bathtub at her Atlanta home earlier that day.
The suit also bashed claims that Gordon was her husband, saying he "perpetuated the fraud that he had married Brown, though in fact he never did so.” The lawsuit, which is seeking $10 million in punitive damages, stated that the amount is “based on the foregoing wrongful conduct by [Gordon], which was knowing willful, intentional, reckless and/or grossly negligent.” The $40 million lawsuit also claimed that Gordon regularly transferred funds to his account and also took $11,000 after Bobbi Kristina was put in a medically induced coma, TMZ reported Wednesday.
Hargrove was appointed by court in May as the conservator of Bobbi Kristina’s financial affairs. The lawsuit was filed on the same day when Pat Houston, Bobbi Kristina’s aunt, revealed that Bobbi Kristina's health had “deteriorated” and that she was being moved to hospice care. Pat reportedly added that Bobbi Kristina was now in “God’s hands."
The 22-year-old inherited a $20 million estate from her mother Whitney Houston, who was found dead in a bathtub in 2012.
