ATLANTA (CBS46) -

A new lawsuit filed Friday in Fulton County Superior Court makes explosive claims against Bobbi Kristina's former boyfriend, Nick Gordon.

The suit blames Gordon for Bobbi Kristina's death.

The suit, filed by Bedelia Hargrove on behalf of Bobbi Kristina, alleges Gordon "gave Bobbi Kristina a toxic cocktail rendering her unconscious and then put her face down in a tub of cold water causing her to suffer brain damage."

The suit also alleges Gordon had put cameras around the couple's Roswell home "so he could watch and hear her."  

The civil lawsuit seeks at least $10 million in damages.

The 22-year-old daughter of the late Whitney Houston was found unresponsive in a bathtub on January 31st.  Days earlier, the suit claims, "witnesses were present for an altercation in which Defendant [Gordon] lunged onto Bobbi Kristina while she sat on the living room couch, hitting her so hard in the face that the couch broke, knocking her to the floor, and continued to beat her in the face until she was bloody."

The lawsuit alleges the couple fought for roughly 30 minutes before she was found in the bathtub. The suit says when Bobbi Kristina didn't wake up after being pulled from the tub, [Gordon] "began to slap her saying, "wake up", and also started performing CPR between slaps."

The family of Bobbi Kristina is demanding the case go to trial. Investigators have never filed any charges.

The Fulton County District Attorney's Office did not respond to a request for a comment.

Gordon's publicist released the following statement:

"The recent lawsuit against Nick is slanderous and meritless. Nick has been heartbroken and destroyed over the loss of his love and it's shameful that such baseless allegations have been presented publicly. Nick has engaged civil counsel and intends to defend the lawsuit vigorously and expose it for what it is: a fictitious assault against the person who loved Krissy most."
