The lawyer who represents Bobbi Kristina Brown's estate says the cause of her death is clear: It's boyfriend Nick Gordon. Her conservator has filed an amended lawsuit that says Gordon gave Brown a "toxic cocktail" that rendered her unconscious, at which point he placed her face down in a bathtub full of water, reports TMZ. He then got into bed with a female guest and said, "Now I want a pretty little white girl like you," says the lawsuit. Someone else in the home found Brown after about 15 minutes, and the authorities eventually were called.

"This lawsuit accuses him of murder," a legal analyst tells Atlanta's 11Alive. It alleges that Gordon came in from a night of partying about 6am and accused Brown of cheating on him after looking at camera footage and listening to her conservations. That led to a loud fight of about 30 minutes after which "everything became abruptly quiet." Two other details from the lawsuit: It says one of Brown's teeth was dangling when she was pulled from the tub, and a dust pan was found at the bottom of the tub. No criminal charges have been filed against Gordon, notes 11Alive. (More Bobbi Kristina Brown stories.)
