LifetimeA lawsuit filed by Bobbi Kristina Brown‘s court-appointed conservator, Bedelia C. Hargrove, and obtained by E! Online, alleges Nick Gordon, who was living with Bobbi Kristina at the time she suffered a brain injury that left her incapacitated back in January, committed domestic abuse and made unauthorized money transfers from his girlfriend’s bank account into his own when they were together.

The complaint, filed Tuesday in Superior Court in Georgia’s Fulton County, claims that Gordon “assumed the position” of Bobbi Kristina’s boyfriend after she inherited a “substantial sum” when her mother, Whitney Houston, died in 2012. Hargrove contends that Gordon was very controlling as “part of a scheme to benefit from her wealth” and then would “routinely [transfer] a large portion of Brown’s funds into an account controlled solely by him, without the consent or authorization of Brown.”

The suit also alleges that Gordon began to domestically abuse Bobbi Kristina, “including punching her in the face, knocking out a front tooth and dragging her upstairs by her hair.”

The lawsuit goes on to claim that Bobbi Kristina had planned to meet up with someone on January 31, the day of her accident, to discuss the revelation that Gordon “was not the man she thought he was.”

Finally, the suit claims that Gordon stole more than $11,000 from Bobbi Kristina’s account after she was hospitalized.

Hargrove, who identifies herself in the court papers as “conservator and next friend for Bobbi Kristina Brown,” is demanding at least $40 million in punitive damages for Bobbi Kristina on allegations including assault, battery, intentional infliction of emotional distress and conversion.

Hargrove was appointed Bobbi Kristina’s conservator back in May when the 22-year-old’s dad, Bobby Brown, and aunt Pat Houston were named co-guardians.

Gordon was most recently spotted in Florida, after completing a stint in rehab, according to E! Online. He’s been estranged from Bobbi Kristina’s family since her accident, with his side claiming that they refused to let him see her in the hospital and the family insisting that Gordon never made that much of an effort to be there.
