A lawyer representing Bobbi Kristina Brown's friend Max Lomas has distanced his client from reports suggesting he may have supplied Whitney Houston's daughter with drugs prior to her near-drowning incident at the weekend, insisting he is co-operating fully with authorities.
The 21 year old was hospitalised in Georgia over the weekend (31Jan15) after her partner Nick Gordon found her unresponsive and face down in a bathtub at their Roswell home.
Lomas was with Gordon when he made the discovery and details about his past, including a drugs bust last month (Jan15), subsequently surfaced online, with some bloggers suggesting he may have played a part in Brown's health emergency.
His attorney, Philip A. Holloway, has now issued a statement to UsMagazine.com to dismiss the allegations.
The statement reads: "My client wants nothing more than to see a full recovery. He and Krissi have been friends for many, many years, and he is absolutely devastated and prays for her immediate recovery."
Holloway goes on to reveal Lomas is doing all he can "to co-operate with authorities" in their ongoing investigation, while insisting his client's January drug charges, to which he has pleaded not guilty, has "absolutely no relationship" to Brown's hospitalisation.
The press release continues, "Mr. Lomas has not been accused of anything in connection with Bobbi Kristina Brown's injuries and is a witness in this investigation. Mr. Lomas' main focus is on Ms. Brown's full recovery, and he continues to pray for her and her entire family throughout this tragedy."
Brown is the late Houston's only child from her marriage to Bobby Brown. He and members of Houston's family have been keeping a beside vigil for the troubled 21 year old, who is "fighting for her life" after being transferred to a top Atlanta hospital.
