Pop culture observers reflexively believed that Bobbi Kristina Brown’s near-fatal submergence in her own bathtub was resultant of illicit narcotics use, based on Brown’s and her parents’ history of addiction and subsequent legal entanglements.
Now, the media is claiming Whitney Houston’s and Bobby Brown’s sole child may have been a victim of foul play and that authorities in metro Atlanta have launched a criminal investigation.
According to tmz.com, Bobbi Kristina sustained injuries that have “piqued” their curiosity as to how she got them and if they contributed to her laying in critical condition at Emory University in Atlanta. She has been on life support for nearly a week after her boyfriend Nick Gordon revived her from unconsciousness after being submerged under water for several minutes.
According to the entertainment publication, police refuse to divulge the nature nor the severity of the injuries, but state that there is a history of domestic violence between Brown and Gordon. Police have interrogated both Gordon and the friend, Max Lomas, a known drug user who was reportedly arrested previous for allegedly giving his girlfriend drugs without her consent.
According to TMZ:
We’re told Max Lomas — the friend who discovered Bobbi Kristina in the tub — arrived at around 9 AM last Saturday. He says he hung out with Nick but did not see Bobbi Kristina. He was told she was in the bedroom. Nick wandered away and Max says he didn’t pay attention to his whereabouts.
The cable guy showed sometime after 10 AM and Max says he let him in — Nick was nowhere to be seen. The cable guy said he needed access to the bedroom so Max let him in and discovered Bobbi Kristina in the tub. He screamed for Nick, who ran in and administered CPR.
We’re told Max claims Nick allegedly cleaned up the home and removed blood stains.
Cops interviewed both Max and Nick and they want to debrief Max again, but our law enforcement sources say Max’s lawyer insisted on immunity before he spoke again. We’re told as of Friday morning Max hadn’t gotten immunity or talked to cops.
Our sources say Nick Gordon has also lawyered up. We could not reach Nick for comment.
These are very inflammatory reports coming from the publication. Time will soon tell what caused Bobbi Kristina to get into her current, perilous condition.
Stay tuned for further developments.
