Bobbi Kristina Brown has been in a coma since late January and it’s a condition she won’t likely come out of, well, ever. She’s currently in hospice care as her family tries to come to terms with her final date, but the vultures have already started to swarm. You see, BK’s being sued over a January car accident in which a man claims he sustained “serious injuries” which entitle him to a payout. Nick Gordon, is that you in disguise?
According to a lawsuit filed by Russell J. Eckerman and obtained by PEOPLE, the accident occurred “on or about” Jan. 27. The papers claim Bobbi Kristina was “traveling at an imprudent speed for conditions and was following too closely and improperly attempted to change lanes in order to avoid the vehicle stopping in front of her.”
Bobbi Kristina then allegedly lost control of the 2005 Jeep Liberty she was driving, crossed the center line and collided with Eckerman’s Ford Taurus.
Eckerman claims he sustained “significant injuries” from the crash, including facial, spinal and skull fractures, a laceration on his scalp and a left wrist sprain that landed him in the hospital where he was placed in a medically induced coma and on a ventilator.
According to the papers, he underwent several procedures and his medical bills exceeded $732,610.22.
If this is indeed true and the man did sustain these injuries and it was BK’s fault, then I do agree her estate should have to pay the medical bills. But the whole thing just seems a little fishy to me. Perhaps it’s just because it’s such a delicate situation given that BK will never be able to give her own version of events or even have her say in this, but it just strikes me as really awful for everyone involved.
