Last summer, Whitney Houston‘s daughter Bobbi Kristina announced that she was engaged to her “adopted brother” Nick Gordon – news that wasn’t so welcome to her father, Bobby Brown, or… anyone else, really. However, we knew it was going to happen and indeed, now it seems it has, since Bobbi posted the following photo on Twitter:
Bobbi Kristina is only 20, so that’s a major red flag and a sign that this thing isn’t really going to last all that long. A lot of people think that the sibling relationship they shared makes their whole relationship problematic, but eh, I’m pretty live and let live in that sense. They’re not related by blood, and even if they were, what’s it to any of us? That’s not to say I’m some huge proponent of incest, but I dunno, it just doesn’t seem that unnatural to me that they would end up together when they grew up around each other. Is it ill-conceived? Sure, getting married to anyone at 20 probably is. That being said, that’s more of a problem here than the fact that he was like her “adopted brother”, I think. That being said, I do think if Whitney was still alive, she wouldn’t be having ANY of it.

So, Bobbi Kristina is marrying her “adopted brother” Nick Gordon. In the words of Fred Armisen as Joy Behar, “So what, who cares?” He’s not her ACTUAL brother, and even if he was, that’s kinda nasty but kinda doesn’t affect anyone but them, so I don’t see why everyone is so up in arms about it. One person in particular who’s not too happy is Bobbi’s father Bobby Brown.
TMZ asked Bobby if he was excited for Bobbi’s nuptials, to which he replied:
“I’m not. [But] it’s not a question of whether I like him [Nick Gordon] or not… I just want her to be happy.”
LOL! Here’s a bit more:
Bobby made it clear he doesn’t approve … and reveals that Nick never even called him up to ask for her hand in marriage. The Brown family isn’t exactly the tightest bunch — Bobbi Kristina doesn’t talk to her dad, so why would Nick?
Hmm, very true. Bobby is being a bit unreasonable here and doesn’t really have any room to make demands, but we’ll let him spout off for now.
Whitney Houston‘s daughter, Bobbi Kristina, is engaged to Whitney Houston’s “sort of” son, Nick Gordon. Though Houston never legally adopted Gordon, Houston’s brother said in 2012 (via ABC News) that Nick Gordon was, “like a son to her.” But Bobbi Kristina does NOT see it that way. As she wrote on her Facebook wall (via People):
I’m tired of hearing people say, ‘Eww your (sic) engaged to your brother’ or if Whitney was still alive would we be together or would she approve of this? Let me clear up something, we aren’t even real brother and sister, nor is he my adoptive brother. My mom never adopted him.
Okay, but it still reminds me of Richie and Margot’s relationship in The Royal Tenenbaums. Margot and Richie were brother and sister who fell in love with each other, although Margot was legally adopted. But I think emotionally it doesn’t make a difference, especially if Houston considered Gordon her son. That’s it. Papers not required. Bobbi Kristina though says that her mom would approve of her kids’ relationship.
Mommy was the one who even said that she knew that we were going to start dating. My mom knows me better than any of you. A lot of y’all are saying that y’all are only saying this all out of love. Which is bull because if that was so, all you would want is for me to be happy.
She’s absolutely right — we don’t know her better than her mom does, and we don’t know her mom or their family personally.
Still, I’m gonna leave this here anyway:
