    Bobbi Kristinas estate emerge as police investigate possible foul play

    As family members gather around a comatose Bobbi Kristina Brown, Atlanta area police have reportedly launched a criminal investigation into how the 21-year-old wound up unresponsive in her bathtub about a week ago.

    What initially appeared to be an eerily tragic homage to her mother, singer Whitney Houston, who drowned in a bathtub almost three years ago, is now showing signs of foul play. According to recent news reports, Brown apparently sustained injuries before the bathtub incident.

    According to reports, the police investigation is targeted at Nick Gordon, Brown’s boyfriend, who along with his friend Max Lomas reportedly discovered Bobbi Kristina face-down in the bathtub at her Atlanta home.

    Brown’s relationship with Gordon has been subject to both family and public scrutiny. Not long after Houston’s death in 2012, Brown revealed she was romantically involved with the young man her mother had taken in about 10 years earlier. Gordon had lived with the family since he was 12 years old, but Houston never officially adopted him — a fact Bobbi Kristina pointed to in defending their relationship on social media.

    But not all of Brown’s family members were convinced by this rationale. In an interview with Oprah Winfrey last year, Whitney’s sister-in-law, Marion “Pat” Houston, admitted the relationship “just didn’t sit right with me.”

    “I always looked at them as being, you know, the brother-and-sister type,” Houston said. “I just did not see the relationship moving in that direction.”

    As the only child of Whitney Houston and her ex-husband, singer Bobby Brown, Bobbi Kristina is her mother’s sole heir — which might explain why some family members seem to be pre-emptively countering any attempt Gordon might make to claim Whitney’s fortune.

    Despite their wearing rings and referring to each other as husband and wife in public and on social media, Bobby Brown’s lawyer said, in a statement to ABC News this week, that “Bobbi Kristina is not and has never been married to Nick Gordon.”

    Even before last weekend’s tragic events, the Houstons seemed determined to distance themselves — and Bobbi Kristina — from Gordon. Houston, who is married to Whitney’s brother Gary, is the executor of Bobbi Kristina’s trust fund. In April of last year, she obtained a restraining order against Gordon. According to the police report she filed, Gordon made threats against her and other relatives after she denied his request to increase Bobbi Kristina’s monthly allowance. The court-issued protective order barred Gordon from contacting Houston or her “immediate family” for one year.
