Nick Gordon was found legally responsible for the death of Bobbi Kristina Brown earlier this month, but Bobby Brown isn't satisfied just yet.

The 47-year-old singer sat down with Pastor T.D. Jakes (in an interview that will air on Wednesday) and admitted he won't feel any type of closure until Gordon is criminally charged.

"I know some things that happened to my daughter. I don't know the specifics of what happened, but as the judge has said, he is legally responsible," Brown explained. "I know some things that happened to my daughter, but it's up to the D.A. now to do his job."

He continued, "The D.A. still hasn't taken out criminal charges on Nick Gordon, and that's what I'm waiting for him to do. That's when I think I will get some closure."

Still, Bobby is able to find at least a little bit of peace. "Just knowing that he's legally responsible for my daughter's death has given me a bit of calmness to waiting for the D.A.," he said. "There's a lot of strange things that will come out in the criminal charges against Nick."

For example, Bobby explained, "My daughter was afraid of tubs because of what happened to her mom. So I know she wouldn't have gotten in the tub. I mean, it's crazy because the tub wasn't even full of water. It had a dustpan in it, in the bottom of the tub."

Bobby is referencing the day Bobbi Kristina was found face down and unconscious in a bathtub on Jan. 31, 2015. She went into a coma for nearly 6 months before she passed away on July 26, 2015 at the age of 22.

Bobbi Kristina's estate filed a $10 million wrongful death lawsuit against Gordon in August 2015, claiming a violent altercation between the late daughter of Whitney Houston and Gordon led to the incident in the bathtub.

On Sept. 16, Gordon failed to appear in court for the lawsuit, which is when a judge found him legally responsible for her death.

Following the judge's ruling, Bobby released a statement to E! News saying, "I am pleased with the outcome of today's court proceedings. All I ever wanted was answers relating to who and what caused my daughter's death. Today's judgment tells me it was Nick Gordon. Now I need to process all the emotions I have and lean on God to get me and my family through this."

Though Gordon's attorneys didn't release a statement following the ruling, they have long maintained their client's innocence in the investigation. "The truth is Nick tried to save Bobbi Kristina's life," they said in a statement following the release of her autopsy results in March. "The truth is that Nick cooperated with law enforcement since day one. The truth is that no one loved Bobbi Kristina more than Nick and no one has suffered more as a result of her death than [sic] Nick."
