While Bobbi Kristina remains in a coma in a hospital with failing organs and not much hope of ever waking up, the Houston and Brown families have been working to keep Nick Gordon, Bobbi’s fake-husband and possible abuser from seeing her. The police are also said to be investigating him for possible domestic violence, and Nick has been doing everything he can to avoid that questioning. He refused to speak to police in exchange for being allowed to see Bobbi, and he even went so far as to file a restraining order against the police to keep them from getting a hold of private security footage of his and Bobbi’s house. Which, you know, is not at all condemning!
However, Nick seems to have had a change of heart, since he likely realised that being scared shitless to let police see what actually went on in your house when your girlfriend nearly drowned to death (and pretty much did, if you look at it from another angle) probably doesn’t cast him in the best light.
After Gordon’s lawyers Joe S. Habachy and Randall M. Kessler filed the documents, however, a new statement to Us Weekly reveals that Gordon has since changed his mind, in an effort to comply with the police investigation.
“To protect his client’s interests, Mr. Habachy filed the Temporary Restraining Order. However, Mr. Gordon has since elected to dismiss the claim in an effort to help Roswell PD speed up their investigation,” the statement to Us reads.
In the initial filing, Gordon’s lawyer claimed that “The Search Warrant violates the Fourth Amendment in that it is overly broad and seeks private data ‘without limitation,’ and fails to narrowly limit the scope of the data sought by date or other characteristics.” The decision to seek a temporary restraining order came after Gordon received notice from Nest Labs that it had “received ‘legal process’ for data and documents related to the account and that it intended to comply.”
Huh. I don’t see anything good coming from any of this, to be honest. Why is this guy such an asshole and what exactly does he have to hide? Also, if he bought himself some extra time before turning over this footage, can’t he have theoretically destroyed the incriminating bits to spare himself?
