New Bobby Brown interview;

Bobby Brown is continuing to milk the deaths of his ex-wife, Whitney Houston, and his daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown, for every last cent.

He has appeared in an interview with ABC News' Robin Roberts on 20/20 which will air tonight at 10 pm.  In it, Brown discusses his upcoming memoir Every Little Step and again denies claims that he introduced Whitney to the hard drugs that ultimately led to her death in 2012 at the age of 48.

"It wasn't me.  I take my part and I take it hard for me even being a part of it, but we all have our own minds and some of us are stronger than others."

In the book, he reveals that the couple's wedding day was the first time he saw Whitney do drugs, claiming he had sneaked a peek of his bride prior to the ceremony and saw Houston;

"...hunched over a bureau snorting a line of coke."

He alleges she offered him a line, saying she was nervous and that he refused (of course he did), and that he was shocked by what he'd seen (of course he was).

Ramping up the sympathy factor, he tearfully went on to talk about his 22 year old daughter who died last year in horribly tragic circumstances.  He lays the blame for Bobbi Kristina's death firmly at the door, once again, of Nick Gordon—he also implicates Gordon in the death of both mother and daughter.

"It's not a mystery to me.  The same thing that happened to my daughter is what happened to Whitney.  There's only one person that was around both occasions."

Robin Roberts replies;

"You won't say his name—Nick Gordon is who you're referring to."

Brown confirms;

"I won't say his name."

Presumably he doesn't want to do anything to jeopardize the $50 million wrongful death civil suit against Gordon he joined in April.

Still trying to clear his conscience, Brown claims he didn't allow Bobbi Kristina to witness him and Whitney doing drugs;

"I always made a point not to let her see me or my wife in that type of situation, in that type of feeling.  It's hard when, you know, you're doing it every day."

However he wants to paint it, Bobbi Kristina was pretty fucked. Either he's lying and she did see her parents high and doing drugs (it's very hard to believe otherwise), or, given the extent of their daily habit, they barely saw their daughter at all. Poor girl didn't stand a chance.

And so it goes on an on. Bobbi Kristina was surrounded by toxicity from day one, and her own family's constant attempts to cash in on her untimely demise is just disgusting.

It's about time they treated her memory with a little dignity.

New legal documents shockingly claim that Nick Gordon injected Bobbi Kristina Brown with a "toxic" concoction which led to her death.

As previously reported by Popdust, Bobbi Kristina's conservator Bedelia Hargrove filed papers, suing Gordon for wrongful death.  The $10 million suit alleges that Gordon had given 22 year old Brown the toxic cocktail after beating her.  He is then alleged to have placed her face down in the bathtub at her Atlanta home where she was discovered.

Nick Gordon Denies Causing Bobbi Kristina Brown’s Death, Claims He Gave Her CPR

The new legal documents that have been filed get even more specific, claiming that super douche Gordon actually injected poor Bobbi Kristina with the toxic mixture—it is unclear what the mixture was actually made up of.

Hargrove is currently battling with Gordon's legal team, who have requested that the court block the discovery process, the gathering of evidence in the case.  They have also insinuated that there is a 'publicity campaign' against Gordon which is pretty incredible given Gordon appeared willingly on Dr Phil and has been paid (allegedly $40,000) to be photographed at Bobbi Kristina's grave.  Both of those acts alone created enough negative publicity for Gordon to be going on with.  The team's belief is that the procedure of the civil case could force Gordon to answer questions that could be used against him if criminal charges are filed in future so they want it halted for the time being.

Nick Gordon Checks Into Rehab After Threatening Suicide on Dr. Phil

A grand jury is currently being put together in Georgia to decide whether or not to pursue the criminal case against him.  Pending this decision the DA has said that the cause of death following the autopsy has been sealed and is not available to either side.

Gordon's team have previously branded the lawsuit "slanderous", but as we know words are cheap, if he thinks it's slanderous... go ahead and sue.

Bobbi Kristina, daughter of the late Whitney Houston was placed in a medically induced coma after being found unconscious on January 31.  She died on July 26 at the Peachtree Christian Hospice, Duluth.  Gordon has been living with his mother in Florida and has been keeping a low profile pending the investigations (well other than visiting her grave for the cameras that is).

Disgusting Drama At Bobbi Kristina’s Funeral

As if the poor girls life wasn't tragic enough, the infighting and publicity seeking stunts pulled by both sides or her family have been downright disgraceful.  Her funeral descended into a disrespectful circus and these latest revelations give yet another sad insight to this poor girl's short life.

 

 

Nick Gordon is firing back against accusations that he caused the death of Bobbi Kristina Brown.

As Popdust previously reported, in June, Bobbi Kristina's conservator filed a $10 million wrongful death lawsuit against her former boyfriend.

On Tuesday, Gordon’s attorney, Jose Baez, filed a response to the lawsuit, obtained by People magazine—denying that the 25-year-old caused Brown's death and asking for the lawsuit to be dismissed, as the claims are "slanderous and without merit."

The lawsuit accuses Gordon of giving Brown a "toxic cocktail" on January 31 after fighting with her following a night out, and then placing her face down in a full bathtub, which ultimately led to her premature death at age 22—he’s also accused of assaulting Bobbi Kristina and of stealing from her.

Gordon has confessed to arguing with Bobbi Kristina on that fateful night, and admits to changing his clothes afterwards, but denies drugging her and placing her in the bath—in fact, he insists, that when he found her in the tub, he tried desperately to revive her and even performed CPR.

In his response, Baez denied pretty much all of the allegations against his client, insisting there’s no proof of the "several false criminal and frivolous claims" —including the accusation that Gordon “perpetrated the fraud that he had married Bobbi Kristina” in order to "control" her and her money.

He also shot down the claims of physical abuse, including allegations that Gordon kicked and punched Brown and even knocked out one of her teeth.

After languishing for several months in a medically-induced coma, Brown passed away on July 26, 2015. She was buried beside her mother, Whitney Houston, in New Jersey.

A lawsuit filed against Nick Gordon claims he drugged and murdered Bobbi Kristina Brown in a fit of rage.

As Popdust previously reported, the $40 million lawsuit was filed by the attorney who represents Brown’s estate—claiming Gordon made himself out to be Bobbi Kristina’s “surrogate brother” and only assumed the “position of Brown’s boyfriend” after her mom died and Bobbi became the sole beneficiary of her estate.

The suit also alleges that Gordon “would limit with whom she could interact,” answering her phone and changing her appointments, and would frequently transfer money from Bobbi Kristina’s account to his own without telling her.

But, according to TMZ, shit just got even more terrible and tragic, as court documents filed earlier today allege Gordon gave Brown a toxic cocktail, and when she fell into unconsciousness he put her face down in the bathtub and left her to die.

The documents allege that Gordon arrived home early in the morning, after an all night coke and booze bender, and flew into a rage after watching security camera footage. Gordon then allegedly fought with Brown, accusing her of cheating, and calling her a "whore and bitch."

At some point later in the morning, Gordon is accused of giving Brown a "toxic cocktail" that rendered her unconscious, before dragging her into the bathroom and putting her face down in a bath filled with cold water.

According to the documents, Gordon then went to bed with a female guest, whom he told, "Now I want a pretty little white girl like you."

The lawsuit says Brown was discovered in the bath by another guest 15 minutes later, and that when she was pulled out of the water, one of her teeth was hanging loosely, indicating injury. The documents also claim authorities found a dust pan at the bottom of the bath tub.

Following Brown’s passing on July 26, authorities in Atlanta announced her death was now officially being treated as a homicide.

Nick Gordon was named “as a person of interest” following the discovery of Brown in the bath tub, but has maintained his innocence.

Although he has not spoken out publicly on the subject, TMZ reports that one of Bobby Brown’s family recorded a conversation with Gordon, three weeks after the bath incident, and during their talk he is alleged to have claimed Bobbi Kristina had just taken too many drugs.

Woman Parties At Her Own Funeral

Meanwhile, as previously reported, Bobbi Kristina’s best friend claims Gordon beat, choked, and punched Brown in the jaw—and that three weeks before she was found unconscious in the bath, Brown ran and hid from her alleged attacker, placing a distress call to her best friend from an upstairs closet in her Atlanta home.

In an interview with E! News, Alex Reid made a series of gut wrenching allegations of abuse.

“Pretty soon after we met she started telling me about the times [Gordon] had been physically abusive and it just kept escalating,” Reid claimed. “It just kept getting worse and worse. … He was known to choke her. Throw her on the walls, punch her in the jaw. Just unbelievable stuff. It was really this off the handle temper.

“I would ask her ‘What started this?’ and it would always be nothing. He just couldn’t control himself. To understand Krissi, you have to understand that she is a very soft soul. She’s very soft. She hasn’t been hardened by any of the experiences that she’s had. She was always looking, ya know, for somebody to connect to, especially after she lost her mom.

“She used to tell me, like, ‘Alex there’s no one in the world who loves me. Like there’s no one who just loves me. My mom. I used to just lay in my mom’s arms in bed and just know that I was loved’.”

In this week's Follow Up Friday, Popdust brings you a follow up to some of the stories we featured this week.

We've seen a marriage, a separation, a divorce denial, and a funeral in what has been an action packed week in the mad mad world of celebrity....

Disgusting Drama At Bobbi Kristina’s Funeral

Things have gone from disrespectful to disgusting to downright despicable. After the hullabaloo at the funeral Bobbi Kristina's aunt Leolah Brown took to Facebook to counter the story that we was thrown out of the funeral by family friend Tyler Perry.

"As it was and as it will always be; Tyler Perry is loved and respected by me and he is also considered a friend of mine from this day on...As far as me being ‘put’ out of the funeral with the help of Tyler Perry -- that is not true. I will tell the true story and how it ‘really’ went down….“Lastly, Please be aware that this is not over with Mrs. Pat Watson Garland [Houston] and I. There is so much more to come. The world will hear the truth by me. Make no mistake about that,”

She's not going to let it lie—maybe she could turn her attention toward finding out the shameful individual who took and sold the pictures of poor Bobbi Kristina laying in her coffin for a reported $100,000.

Will Smith And Jada Pinkett Smith Are Divorcing

As we predicted, this one is going to be a war of the sources, with one side saying yay and the other side saying nay to the rumors of an impending divorce for the Smiths. Surprisingly for him, Will Smith took the matter into his own hands and issued a categorical denial on his Facebook page,so I guess we have to believe him.

"Under normal circumstances, I don’t usually respond to foolishness. (Because it’s contagious) But, so many people have extended me their “deepest condolences” that I figured – “What the hell… I can be foolish, too!”

So, in the interest of redundant, repetitious, over & over-again-ness… Jada and I are…

NOT GETTING A DIVORCE!!!!!!!!!!!!! : -)

I promise you all – if I ever decide to divorce my Queen – I SWEAR I’ll tell you myself!

Eminem Talks Drastic Weight Loss, Replacing Drugs With Exercise Addiction

Ever controversial, Eminem may have had the wake up call he needed to replace his drug addiction with exercise, but he still hasn't had a wake up call regarding offensive lyrics about women. He's been widely criticized for advocating rape on Dr Dre's new album Straight Outta Compton. On the track Medicine Man, Eminem has a guest spot and he's is heard rapping the line;

Ain't no one safe from, non-believers there ain't none / I even make the bitches I rape cum.”

Nice.

Gwen Stefani Gavin Rossdale Divorce—She Just Got Sick Of His Goddamn Cheating

Following on from the announcement of their split, and old flame of Gavin Rossdale's has crawled out of the woodwork for another 5 minutes of fame on the back of Gwen Stefani.

Marilyn Robinson, a (brief) 80's (male) popstar from London has been determined for the world to acknowledge that he had an affair with Rossdale when they both hung out, years before Rossdale became Mr Stefani, on the London club scene. Rossdale initially denied it but in 2010 came out and admitted he had had a period of sexual experimentation with Marilyn.

Marilyn felt the need to take to the media this week to clarify that he is not to blame for their split, maintaining that 'people want to blame me'. Newsflash Marilyn: people don't give a shit.

Kim Richards Arrested For Shoplifting

Following on from Kim's arrest for shoplifting from Target, it was revealed that she was actually living in her car at the time of the incident (begs the question where on earth would she have put $600 worth of toys?)

Her relatives are said to be so desperate for her to get some help that sticks, they are hoping a judge will order a 5150 hold—which is a mandatory stay in rehab and is involuntary, meaning that Kim could be kept in the facility for a longer period which would hopefully mean she has time to form an effective plan for sobriety.

Surprise! Jennifer Aniston Married Justin Theroux Last Night In Secret Ceremony

Following yesterday's news that Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux pulled off the secret wedding of the year—the newlyweds have been photographed boarding a private jet to their honeymoon destination, Bora Bora.

They aren't alone on the romantic Polynesian island though, they were joined by a posse of celebrity Friends (pun intended) including Jason Bateman, Chelsey Handler and maid of honor Courteney Cox, who was reportedly last-man-standing come 3am at the reception!

According to TMZ, a photo of Bobbi Kristina Brown laying in her coffin has been sold to an unnamed media outlet for more that $100,000.

The photo was reportedly taken during the viewing, one day before the funeral service on Saturday for the 22 year old daughter of Whitney Houston.

Disgusting Drama At Bobbi Kristina’s Funeral

This new development comes amid acrimonious fighting among Bobbi Kristina's family members, whose emotions are understandably raw after six months of tension as she lay in a medically-induced coma.

When the picture emerges, it will undoubtedly trigger a new flurry of accusations among the grieving extended family.

News of the picture is yet another tragic echo of Whitney Houston's death, three years ago. In the end, a photo of Houston in her coffin ended up in the National Enquirer.

We can pray that the photo of Bobbi Kristina, whose body must have wasted away, never gets published. But when it comes to tabloids, sensitivity and respect for the dead are foreign concepts.

Poor girl. Shame on everyone involved in this last insult.
