Bobby Brown believes that Nick Gordon is to blame for the death of his daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown, and he thinks the courts will agree with him.

"In regards to the civil litigation, we believe we know who harmed Bobbi Kristina Brown and his name is Nick Gordon," Bobby's lawyer, Christopher Brown, said in a statement on Sept. 28.

He continued: "Mr. Gordon made headlines when he filed his Motion to Dismiss the lawsuit pending in Superior Court that seeks to hold him responsible for 40 Million Dollars in damages. However, the Motion was frivolous and instead of having it heard by the Court, he has chosen to withdraw the Motion, ending that matter so that he could avoid having to give his deposition which was scheduled for the day he withdrew the Motion. Mr. Gordon will now have to give his deposition under oath."

Bobbi Kristina died on July 26, six months after she was found unresponsive in a water-filled bathtub. Almost from the get-go, Nick became public enemy No. 1 in the eyes of the Bobby Brown and Whitney Houston's families.

In August, Bobbi Kristina's conservator filed a lawsuit claiming that Nick gave the late star a toxic cocktail, and accused him of wrongful death. A judge ordered medical examiners to not release Bobbi Kristina's cause of death.

"I am not shocked at the withdrawal, as we must keep in mind that Gordon filed a lawsuit to remove Bobby Brown as Bobbi Kristina's guardian, only to withdraw that lawsuit in DeKalb County Probate Court once he was served with a deposition notice," Bobby's lawyer's statement continued. "He could have pressed forward with that lawsuit and told us under oath what he believed happened to Bobbi Kristina, but he chose to go in another direction."

Bobby added, "I look forward to having the Court hear the evidence in the civil lawsuit and hopefully the criminal action very soon."

Understandably emotional over the death of his daughter, the statement comes just a day after Bobby broke down during an emotional tribute at the Heroes and Legends Awards in Beverly Hills.

Comedian Tommy Davidson made a speech in the singer's honor, telling the crowd, "There's so much love in him that it just explodes everywhere. He can't go to a concert without ending up onstage! Performing is in his blood. He's just like 100 percent all love, and I love you Bobby Brown."

The camera then panned to Bobby, who was wiping away tears as he applauded his friend's touching presentation.
