Bobbi Kristina was seen by a Chicago doc before hospice move; Nick Gordon lawyers up

Bobbi Kristina Brown was flown to Chicago to be seen by yet another specialist in a last-ditch effort before she was moved to hospice care last week — but who exactly ordered the medevac is up for debate.

People and TMZ say it was co-guardian Pat Houston, while OK Magazine says it was co-guardian Bobby Brown. But no matter who it was, the family wants people to know one thing for sure: It wasn't Oprah Winfrey or Tyler Perry.

The family is annoyed by supposed rumors that make it sound as if the family was relying on the celebrities to get the best care, TMZ was told. Family friend Perry was, however, photographed Sunday visiting the hospice facility where Bobbi Kristina has been since Wednesday.

During the visit to Chicago, a brain specialist told the family there was "no hope" that Krissi would come out of the coma, TMZ reported last week. That news apparently prompted the decision to take the 22-year-old off medications and move her to hospice for a natural death.

The only daughter of the late Whitney Houston and singer Bobby Brown was found unresponsive and face down Jan. 31 in a bathtub in the Atlanta-area home she shared with surrogate "brother"-turned-boyfriend Nick Gordon. She's been in a coma since then, moving from a hospital ICU to a rehab facility and now to hospice. Details leading up to the 911 call that day have not been released.

Meanwhile, Gordon has reportedly just assembled a tabloid-worthy legal team.

In addition to Joe Habachy and Randy Kessler, who've been representing Gordon so far, Casey Anthony lawyer Jose Baez and Natalee Holloway investigator TJ Ward have been brought on board, according to People.

On Thursday, police turned over the results of their months-long investigation into the events of Jan. 31 to prosecutors, who will decide whether to bring charges in the case — presumably against Gordon.

"In view of the new circumstances regarding the health status of Bobbi Kristina Brown, we will be reviewing the case with greater interest," Fulton County District Attorney Paul Howard said in a statement to the Associated Press.

A day previous, on the day Bobbi Kristina Brown was moved to hospice care, her conservator filed a civil suit against Gordon, alleging he'd abused Krissi, taken her money — including $11,000 after she was hospitalized — and maneuvered himself into a position to control her and her substantial wealth.

That suit, which alleges a loud argument took place Jan. 31 before Bobbi Kristina was able to meet with someone for advice about Gordon, is seeking $10 million in damages.
