Nick Gordon Trying To Prolong Being Sued By Houston Estate

Being sued for $40 Million is always a drag, but Nick Gordon is trying to prolong the lawsuit as long as possible. 

According to E!, "Gordon's attorney filed a motion asking the court to stop the suit until the criminal investigation is over and proceedings are finished. The motion claims that because of the high profiles of Brown and her famous parents, Houston and Bobby Brown the 24-year-old has become the victim of negative media attention that would make him 'unfairly, legally and financially prejudiced should he be subject to parallel criminal and civil proceedings.'"

The lawsuit deems that Nick Gordon held Bobbi Kristina Brown in a tub of water after giving her a toxic cocktail that eventually caused her demise.

Bobbi Kristina's death in July brought a slew of allegations concerning how she died, and whether it was murder, suicide, or an accident.

The case remains open, and Gordon still maintains it was not his fault.
