Bobbi Kristina Brown’s death and $20 million inheritance has sparked a war over Whitney Houston’s money. Since Bobbi did not leave a will, the seemingly never-ending inheritance courtesy of Whitney’s royalties has had the Houstons and the Browns feuding, but the Houston family is preparing for Nick Gordon’s next publicity stunt and attempt to get a portion of multimillion dollar inheritance.
Nick Gordon has hired a team of high profile attorneys to defend him against a lawsuit filed by court-appointed lawyer, Bedilia Hargrove. The suit claims that Nick is responsible for Bobbi Kristina’s death after the couple had a fight, which resulted in Nick knocking out 2 of Bobbi’s teeth, and Gordon giving Bobbi a “toxic cocktail” which led her unconscious state.
While there is an active criminal investigation underway, no official charges have been filed against Nick Gordon. Mounting evidence and details from witnesses and friends of Bobbi Kristina would suggest Nick could be arrested for the death of Bobbi Kristina Brown, but Gordon is using his freedom to stage publicity stunts. Nick tipped paparazzi off to his planned gravesite visit, selling the images of his tearful and clearly staged visit to Bobbi’s grave for $40,000. Page Six’s sources claim Nick is using the money to pay his legal fees. The stunt was publicized in National Enquirer and Nick made some easy money while enjoying some press which could be used as evidence in his defense. Basically, Nick Gordon’s staged visit to Bobbi Kristina Brown’s grave was a win-win of money and press for Nick.
Speculation suggests that Nick isn’t just building a case for an innocent verdict, Gordon wants a piece of Whitney Houston’s money. The lack of a will on Bobbi Kristina’s part means the court will ultimately decide what happens to Bobbi’s $20 million inheritance. If rumors are true, Nick believes he is entitled to some of that money. Gordon will have a battle to get his hands on Bobbi Kristina’s inheritance money. It was proven that Nick and Bobbi were never legally married. Plus, The Houstons and Browns all want the inheritance money for themselves. Whitney’s immediately family, Pat and Cissy Houston, stand to win control and rights to the money, thanks to the requests per Whitney’s will.
Upon hearing the news of Nick Gordon’s publicity stunt, Cissy Houston allegedly collapsed. The Brown family has been relatively quiet after Bobbi Kristina Brown’s funeral, but, as CDL reported, Pat Houston and Bobby Brown have come together to fight against Gordon. Nick Gordon’s guilt and responsibility for Bobbi Kristina Brown’s death seems to be the one point both families agree on. It’s likely the Houston’s will lead the charge in preparing for Nick’s next publicity stunt for a paycheck and his attempt to cash in on Bobbi Kristina Brown’s inheritance from her late mother, Whitney Houston.
What do you think Nick Gordon’s next staged stunt will be? Will the Houston family and the Brown family be able to work together in to try and prove Nick Gordon is guilty in Bobbi Kristina Brown’s case? Let us know what you think in the comments below.
