Nick Gordon posted a Christmas card on Twitter on Wednesday, December 23, that features him with his late girlfriend, Bobbi Kristina Brown.
The Photoshopped picture shows the late daughter of Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown alongside Gordon, 25. Santa hats and presents have been added to the pic, which is framed with a festive border that reads “Merry Christmas.”
It's a controversial move by Gordon, who was hit with a $10 million wrongful death lawsuit in August, a month after Brown, 22, died. She never regained consciousness after being found unresponsive in a bathtub at her Atlanta-area home in January.
According to court documents obtained by Radar Online in October, the lawsuit filed by Brown’s conservator, Bedelia Hargrove, claims that “Ms. Brown died due to a violent altercation with Gordon after which he placed her in a bathtub, unconscious, after he injected her with a toxic mixture.”
Hargrove’s lawsuit also accused Gordon of both verbal and physical abuse, including an instance in which Gordon allegedly knocked Brown’s teeth out, as well as withdrawing money from her bank account.
In October, an insider told Us Weekly that Gordon may face murder charges. Brown’s death was being treated as a criminal investigation.
Meanwhile, Gordon has maintained his innocence. “The recent lawsuit against Nick is slanderous and meritless,” his attorney Jose Baez told USA Today in August.
Gordon spent time in rehab in April after a bizarre appearance on Dr. Phil.
