Bobbi Kristina Brown's boyfriend served with $10 million lawsuit

Bobbi Kristina Brown's boyfriend Nick Gordon has officially been served with legal papers in a $10 million lawsuit accusing him of abusing Whitney Houston's daughter and stealing funds from the ailing youngster's bank account.

Houston's only child with ex-husband Bobby Brown has been fighting for her life since January (15), when she was found face down and unresponsive in a bath tub at the Georgia home she shared with Gordon.


She was subsequetly placed in a medically-induced coma and was recently transferred to a hospice after doctors revealed there was nothing more they could do for the 22 year old.


Brown's court-appointed conservator, Bedelia C. Hargrove, launched legal action against Gordon last month (Jun15), and on Sunday (12Jul15), he was personally handed the papers by a court server while out and about in Longwood, Florida.


The incident was caught on camera, and in video footage obtained by the New York Daily News, a clueless Gordon accepted the manilla envelope as he left a Starbucks coffee shop.


Asked what the envelope is by a bystander, Gordon responds, "I have no idea."


In the lawsuit, filed in Atlanta's Fulton County Superior Court, Hargrove accuses Gordon of assault, battery and intentional infliction of emotional distress. The papers also allege Gordon transferred money from his girlfriend's account without her permission while she was comatose in an Atlanta-area hospital.


Gordon has yet to respond to the lawsuit.
