ATLANTA, Ga. – A wrongful death lawsuit has been filed following the death of Bobbi Kristina Brown.

On July 26, Bobbi Kristina passed away when her family decided to take her off all of her medication.

In January, Bobbi Kristina was found submerged in her bathtub.

Police were able to resuscitate her, but say she was underwater for about five minutes. She was put into a medically induced coma and placed on life support.

She never regained consciousness and doctors reportedly told the family she would never recover.

Now, an amended lawsuit has been filed, accusing Bobbi Kristina’ boyfriend of playing a role in her death.

The original suit accused Nick Gordon of assault, battery, intentional infliction of emotional distress and transferring money from her account to his without authorization.

On Friday, Bobbi Kristina’s conservator filed an amendment to the lawsuit, adding a wrongful death count, according to 11Alive.

It alleges that Gordon and Bobbi Kristina got into a fight and Gordon “gave Bobbi Kristina a toxic cocktail rendering her unconscious and then put her face down in a tub of cold water causing her to suffer brain damage.”

About 15 minutes later, the suit claims that a guest at the home went in to check on Brown and found her in the tub.

“It’s very detailed,” Philip Holloway, a legal analyst, told 11Alive. “Lawyers are ethically prohibited from alleging things in a lawsuit unless they have support. This lawsuit accuses him of murder.”

The suit also goes into detail about the couple’s relationship, alleging that Gordon was controlling, abusive and would constantly watch Bobbi Kristina.

“Only days before January 31, 2015, witnesses were present for an altercation in which Defendant lunged onto Bobbi Kristina while she sat on the living room couch, hitting her so hard in the face that the couch broke, knocking her to the floor, and continued to beat her in the face until she was bloody. Afterwards, he began kicking Bobbi Kristina in the side to the point that she was on the floor screaming and curled up in a fetal position. As a result of Defendant’s attack, Bobbi Kristina’s tooth was knocked out and blood was on the floor. Defendant then demanded that she go upstairs. Bobbi Kristina began crawling on the floor because she could not stand up due to the injuries Defendant inflicted. Defendant then dragged her upstairs by her hair and threw her in the master bedroom, leaving blood on the walls of the staircase. Afterward, Defendant stated to persons present, “I don’t do this often,” the lawsuit alleges.

The lawsuit claims that Bobbi Kristina had told a friend that Gordon was not who she thought he was and had set up a meeting to discuss it. However, she was found unconscious before that time.
