Whitney Houston’s only daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown is on her death bed. But that didn’t stop a Marietta man from filing a lawsuit against her. Russell Eckerman filed suit in Fulton County Supreme Court on Friday, July 2.
In the lawsuit documents, obtained by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Eckerman claimed Brown was speeding when she lost control of her Jeep and swerved into oncoming traffic, colliding with his Ford Taurus on January 27.
According to the New York Daily News, police investigators determined Brown’s right rear tyre blew out and that caused the accident.In his papers, Eckerman claims his vehicle incurred “extensive damage”, while he suffered “serious personal injury”, and he is seeking $730,000 in medical bills and damages.Eckerman has also named Bobbi Kristina’s guardians, her father Bobby and aunt Pat Houston, and conservator Bedelia Hargrove in the suit, as well as executives at the Ford Motor Company, alleging the airbag on his Taurus did not deploy properly and the seat belt was defective.
Brown was found face down and unresponsive in a bathtub at her Roswell, GA. townhouse on Jan. 31. She was taken off life support last week and transported to a hospice in a suburb of Atlanta. Brown’s boyfriend, Nick Gordon, is the leading suspect if Brown dies.
