From 11 Alive

    The lawsuit alleges that Gordon presented himself to be Brown's surrogate brother prior to 2012. After Brown inherited a substantial sum of money from her mother, Whitney Houston's estate, Gordon "assumed the position of Brown's boyfriend." Around Jan. 9, 2014, Gordon "perpetuated the fraud that he had married Brown, though in fact he never did so," according to the lawsuit.

The suit alleges that Gordon answered Brown's cell phone, wouldn't allow her to make appointments without his permission and "manipulated her bank relationship so that she could access her money."

    "This is my first time of attending these types of meetings (AU) and they go on and on until about 1 in the morning. And then you are supposed to start in the morning again. Everybody is repeating what the other speaker has said instead of to keep their mouth shut. Anyways, it is a great experience. I have listened to the address paraphrased by the counsel-general, I’m pleased that wherever Nigerians are whether in South Africa or Saudi Arabia or Europe or Alaska for that matter, you’ll make an impact both positive and negative.
