D.A. To Seek Manslaughter Charges Against Nick Gordon In Bobbi Kristina's Death
Nick Gordon could potentially face involuntary manslaughter charges for the death of Bobbi Kristina.
According to TMZ, authorities are now working to pin involuntary manslaughter onto Bobbi Kristina's long-time boyfriend Nick Gordon following her death, law enforcement reports.
The details of the charge include Gordon's alleged arrangement to obtain the drugs for Bobbi Kristina the day she was found in her bathtub on January 31. Prosecutors have reason to believe that Gordon was aware of Bobbi Kristina's drug problem, TMZ was told, and of her falling unconscious on other occasions after overusing. However, Bobbi's injury-free autopsy report does not give the prosecutors' claims much hope, as medical examiners also concluded that no preexisting medical condition was found that may have contributed to the 22-year-old's death.
Gordon did admit that he and Bobbi did drugs that morning however, and authorities now have their eyes set on the person present in the home that day: Max Lomas. The current defendant is being charged with two drug-related felonies in Georgia that are separate from the Bobbi Kristina case, but authorities feel he is a significant component for the prosecution. Even if Lomas is reluctant to talk, a source tells TMZ that he's been offered immunity in Bobbi's case and a mere probation on the drug charges if he opens up about what really happened that day Bobbi Kristina was found.
A member of Bobbi Kristina's camp, her best friend Bess Beckman, has already come forth about the alleged violent history in Bobbi and Gordon's relationship. Beckman is working with the Georgia Bureau of Investigation (GBI) to further investigate the claims. She told authorities that Gordon beat Bobbi several times after she revealed that she had plans to launch her career in L.A. She also added that he had beaten her only several days before Bobbi was discovered unconscious in the bathtub.
Additional details on Gordon's defense and the prosecution will become available upon release.
