More details are surfacing about how Bobbi Kristina Brown spent the last days of her life. In the newly released transcript of a videotaped deposition, Brown’s friend and former roommate Danyela Bradley details the late aspiring singer’s alleged drug use.

“She smoked marijuana, she probably smoked crack often, and also did heroin,” Bradley claimed in the deposition, which was taken in connection with a car accident both she and Brown were involved in on Jan. 27, just days before Brown was found unconscious in a bathtub at her Atlanta, Ga. home.

In the papers, obtained by Us Weekly on Monday, Oct. 26, Bradley also speaks out about her friendship with Whitney Houston’s only daughter, whom she met through Brown’s boyfriend, Nick Gordon, and his friend Max Lomas.

“Me and Krissy became very, very close,” she said in the file. “Our relationship just grew as if we had [grown] into sisters up until her passing.” 

Bradley added that she, Brown, Gordon, and Lomas lived together in the house that Houston had left in her daughter’s name for about a month, spanning the beginning of the year through Brown’s hospitalization.

“When I first lived with her I didn’t know that she had actually had a problem with [drugs] until I had lived with her …for a couple of weeks,” she said of Brown’s alleged hard drug use. “[But] I guess after a few weeks she just didn’t really hide it."

Though Bradley would sometimes smoke marijuana with Brown, she says she never did any of the harder drugs, and claimed that Brown never talked about or did the cocaine or heroin in front of her.

“I would just visually see her physical being and I could just tell,” she said, noting that Brown would get “very sleepy, nod off” and “kind of keep to herself” when she did heroin, and would “just be not even talkative” when she did crack.

Asked what Brown’s relationship with Gordon was like, Bradley said the couple “had a very happy, loving relationship,” and that Gordon sometimes referred to himself as Brown’s “husband,” though the pair were not legally married to her knowledge.

Earlier this month, Gordon was accused of injecting Brown with a fatal “toxic mixture” that may have led to her eventual death.

Brown remained in a medically induced coma for nearly six months before she passed away on July 26. She was 22 years old.

Brown’s conservator, Bedelia Hargrove, has also accused Gordon of verbally and physically abusing Brown, as well as withdrawing funds from her accounts after her hospitalization.

Gordon’s team argues that because of the level of Brown’s fame, “Mr. Gordon will be unfairly, legally, and financially prejudiced should he be subject to parallel criminal and civil proceedings.”
