Oh, to be young and in love! How sweet it is to feel the gentle kiss and tender embrace of your lover! How wonderfully, beautifully freeing it is to meet your soulmate! Who’s also your brother. Oh, wait.
Yes, we’re still talking about Bobbi Kristina and her blooming relationship with her adopted brother, Nick Gordon. And why wouldn’t we be? As you can see in that picture up there, Bobbi Kristina is sporting a rather large diamond on That Finger, and as you’re about to hear from me, it’s because she’s getting married. To her brother.
Whitney Houston’s teenage daughter, Bobbi Kristina, has told her grandmother, Cissy Houston, she will marry Nick Gordon, a longtime friend who’s known as her ‘adopted’ brother, even though the matriarch of the family is vehemently opposed to the relationship, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.
As Star magazine exclusively reported in this week’s issue, just one month after Whitney’s death, Bobbi Kristina, 19, secretly got engaged to Nick, 22, and she’s recently been spotted wearing a diamond engagement ring.
Cissy Houston is “absolutely heartsick that Bobbi Kristina has gotten engaged. This reminds her of when Whitney married Bobby Brown, whom Cissy has never approved of. Cissy has conveyed to Krissy how upset she is, and has urged her to have a prolonged engagement. Krissy has told her grandmother that she doesn’t need her blessing to marry Nick, and the more Cissy objects to the relationship, well that only cements Krissy’s decision. It’s just a very sad situation. Clearly, Krissy loves Nick, but she has just lost her mother, and her entire world has been turned upside down. Krissy doesn’t think she needs to wait, and points to her mom’s sudden death as the reason to marry Nick,” a source close to the situation tells us.
“Nick proposed to Krissy on March 10, and she said yes,” a family friend told Star. “Krissy said Nick is the only person she trusts in the world. They have a very deep connection,” a family insider told Star via RadarOnline.com.
Bobbi Kristina lives with Nick in Whitney’s $1.2 million Atlanta townhouse, and they call each other “brother” and “sister,” says the source.
Although he was never adopted by Whitney, she took Nick in several years ago after his father went to prison and his mother was unable to care for him.
“Nick took care of Whitney and Kristina,” his grandmother Maxine Gordon tells Star. “He’s always been extremely protective of Kristina.”
Bobbi Kristina has had several heated arguments with Cissy about the engagement, and the 19 year old has said “my mother would have approved of me marrying Nick, and I’m going to do it,” the source says.
Ok, I know, this news is from Radar and Star and therefore a little questionable. But you guys, you know who else has this story? People. And you know People makes it real.
Man, this story is just way too … I’m not sure of the right word. Icky? Yucky? Flowers in the Attic-y? Apparently Bobbi is defending herself by saying that this relationship is totally ok because Nick isn’t her brother by blood, and she “can’t please everyone,” which just makes this worse. I mean, I know it’s her life and all, but can someone get this girl an intervention, stat?
