In a statement to the media Bobby Brown formally accuses Nick Gordon of harming his daughter Bobbi Kristina.
The letter from Bobby’s lawyer reads,
“In regards to the civil litigation, we believe we know who harmed Bobbi Kristina Brown and his name is Nick Gordon.”
“Mr. Gordon made headlines when he filed his Motion to Dismiss the lawsuit pending in Superior Court that seeks to hold him responsible for 40 million dollars in damages.”
“However, the Motion was frivolous and instead of having it heard by the Court, he has chosen to withdraw the Motion, ending that matter so that he could avoid having to give his deposition which was scheduled for the day he withdrew the Motion. Mr. Gordon will now have to give his deposition under oath.”
“I am not shocked at the withdrawal, as we must keep in mind that Gordon filed a lawsuit to remove Bobby Brown as Bobbi Kristina’s guardian, only to withdraw that lawsuit in DeKalb County Probate Court once he was served with a deposition notice. He could have pressed forward with that lawsuit and told us under oath what he believed happened to Bobbi Kristina, but he chose to go in another direction.”
August Alsina performed Friday night in Baton Rouge as part of the Freebandz Music Fest. The crooner brought a female audience member on stage and began to sing intimately to her. However, August caressed the fan breasts as she looked on in disbelief. She appeared to be uncomfortable and embarassed as the singer continued to hug her.
This begs the question should August be held responsible for his actions?
