ATLANTA (AP) — Lawyers for the partner of Bobbi Kristina Brown say a lawsuit accusing him of contributing to her death is false and slanderous.

The administrator of Bobbi Kristina Brown’s estate added a wrongful death count to the lawsuit against Nick Gordon. It accuses Gordon of giving Brown a “toxic cocktail” and putting her face-down in water.

Gordon’s lawyers, Joe Habachy and Jose Baez, said the allegations are baseless. They said Gordon is “heartbroken” and called the suit a “fictitious assault.”

The 22-year-old daughter of Whitney Houston died in hospice care July 26, months after she was found face-down and unresponsive in a bathtub in her suburban Atlanta townhome Jan. 31.

Gordon hasn’t been criminally charged. The Fulton County Medical Examiner’s office has said an initial autopsy revealed “no significant injuries.”
