Shortly after authorities announced they were sealing Bobbi Kristina Brown's final autopsy report, Bobby Brown's attorney applauded the move in a statement -- and accused Nick Gordon of playing a role in harming the deceased daughter of Brown and Whitney Houston.

“In regards to the civil litigation, we believe we know who harmed Bobbi Kristina Brown and his name is Nick Gordon," Christopher Brown said in a statement.

Brown's lawyer noted that Bobbi Kristina's boyfriend withdrew a motion to dismiss a lawsuit suing him for 40 million in damages, alleging Gordon did "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."

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

After spending nearly six months in a coma, Bobbi Kristina Brown passed away at age 22 on July 26, 2015.
