Just days after Bobbi Kristina Brown’s autopsy results were released to the public, the legal team for her boyfriend, Nick Gordon, is again speaking out as he continues to face a $10 million lawsuit over her death.
In a statement to People, Gordon’s attorneys, Jose Baez and Joe S. Habachy, said that their client did nothing wrong.
"Nick Gordon's life has been tumultuous since January of 2015 when he lost the love of his life," said Baez and Habachy. "On top of being prohibited from visiting Bobbi Kristina at the hospital for the last six months of her life, Nick has been publicly humiliated for more than a year.”
The statement added, “Throughout that time the Fulton County District Attorney's office has tried to make Nick a murderer despite having clear and convincing evidence that Bobbi Kristina's death was nothing more than a tragic accident, evidence that the District Attorney's office fought to seal and conceal from the public rather than allowing her fans to know the truth."
Gordon’s attorneys also said that their client actually attempted to “save” his girlfriend’s life. "The truth is that Nick tried to save Bobbi Kristina's life. The truth is that Nick cooperated with law enforcement since day one. The truth is that no one loved Bobbi Kristina more than Nick and no one has suffered more as a result of her death than Nick,” they said.

And the attorneys went on to slam the District Attorney’s office for their comments on the case. “The Fulton County District attorney's office even now continues to suggest that there is an ongoing investigation. However, at the recent hearing regarding unsealing the autopsy report, Fulton County Superior Court Judge Henry Newkirk repeatedly reiterated that the Fulton County District Attorney's Office has had 13 months to investigate. By failing to acknowledge that there is simply no evidence of any wrongdoing, they have in essence helped feed the slanderous media frenzy regarding Nick Gordon,” the lawyers said. “Frankly, the right thing for the District Attorney's office to do right now is to tell the public the truth... that this was an accident... or even a suicide, but not a murder," the statement concludes. "And the right thing for everyone to do is let Nick live his life now and let Bobbi Kristina rest in peace."
The autopsy report released on March 4 detailed that a combination of drugs and drowning contributed to Brown's death. But due to questions regarding whether her passing was “due to intentional or accidental causes,” the manner of Bobbi Kris’ death remains “undetermined.
