Scoop: Bobby Brown speaks out against Nick Gordon

Bobby Brown isn’t mincing words about who he thinks is responsible for his daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown’s death.

On Monday, soon after authorities in Fulton County, Ga., said they were sealing Bobbi Kristina’s final autopsy report, Bobby Brown’s attorney applauded the move in a statement — and accused Nick Gordon of playing a role in harming the deceased daughter of Brown and Whitney Houston.

“In regards to the civil litigation, we believe we know who harmed Bobbi Kristina Brown and his name is Nick Gordon,” Christopher Brown said in a statement.

Brown’s attorney noted that Bobbi Kristina’s boyfriend withdrew a motion to dismiss a lawsuit suing him for 40 million in damages, alleging Gordon did it “so that he could avoid having to give his deposition,” which was scheduled for the same day he withdrew the motion. The lawyer added, “Mr. Gordon will now have to give his deposition under oath.”

In the same announcement, Bobby Brown said, ““I look forward to having the court hear the evidence in the civil lawsuit and hopefully the criminal action very soon.

Bobbi Kristina, who was in a coma for nearly six months, died at age 22 on July 26.

Criminal charges have not been filed against Gordon.


Seven months after Giuliana Rancic dissed her Oscar look, Zendaya is laughing all the way to the bank.

Mattel created a one-of-a-kind fashion doll bearing the 19-year-old’s likeness — including her off-the-shoulder Vivienne Westwood gown, dreadlocks and pearl drop earrings from Hollywood’s biggest night, Page Six reported.

“When I was little I couldn’t find a Barbie that looked like me, my… how times have changed,” Zendaya said in a photo split next to her doll. “Thank you @Barbie for this honor and for allowing me to be [part] of your diversification and expansion of the definition of beauty. Can’t wait to keep doing amazing things with you…”

The doll isn’t available for purchase.

Nicki Minaj, who received the same honor in 2011, congratulated Zendaya on Instagram.
