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.
What do you guys think?

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.

Brown was arrested in October after cops pulled the singer over for driving erratically, and smelled alcohol in his ride.
Bobby was charged with DUI and driving on a suspended license following the incident. (Brown’s license had been suspended as a result of his previous DUI conviction in 2012. Bobby was also convicted of DUI in 1996.)
Bobby pled no contest to the charges today. He was sentenced to the jail time, plus 4 years probation. He was also ordered to complete an 18-month alcohol program.
My God. Seriously, Bobby Brown? Seriously? I mean, I know you’ve never been the moral compass that guides us all, but seriously? Your third DUI?
Do you think he’ll actually wind up spending that many days in jail? Or will it be the revolving door policy as is so common with celebrities? He has until March 20 to turn himself in. In the meantime he has to attend 3 AA meetings per week.

Bobby Brown has just been arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence in Los Angeles … TMZ has learned.
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ, Bobby was pulled over in Reseda, CA at 12:20 PM PST for allegedly driving while talking on a cell phone.
We’re told 43-year-old Bobby is currently in custody in Van Nuys jail. It’s unclear what substance cops believe Brown had been using before he got behind the wheel.
Whitney Houston’s ex-husband already has a DUI conviction on his record stemming from an arrest in Georgia in 1996. He eventually pled guilty to DUI and served 8 days in jail.
Brown has been back in the news ever since Whitney died in a Beverly Hills hotel room on February 11. Bobby was turned away from the death scene and left the funeral service early after a disagreement with Houston’s family.
1:54 PM PST — Sources close to the singer tell us … Bobby’s “people” are en route to the jail to bail him out.
Oh. Good to see that Bobby’s back to his old tricks now that Whitney’s not around to keep a short and semi-invisible leash on the bastard. The thing is, like TMZ said, Lord only knows what he’s under the influence of this time around. Bobbi Kristina – excuse me, Kristina Houston – must be so proud of her estranged daddy.
Can’t wait to see what this mugshot looks like, hot damn.

The media freaked earlier today when Whitney Houston’s ex-husband, Bobby Brown, reportedly left the funeral soon after it began. Not a good look, Bobby Brown.
In a statement put out by his representative, he explained, “My children and I were invited to the funeral of my ex-wife Whitney Houston. We were seated by security and then subsequently asked to move on three separate occasions.
“I fail to understand why security treated my family this way and continue to ask us and no one else to move,” he said. “Security then prevented me from attempting to see my daughter Bobbi-Kristina. In light of the events, I gave a kiss to the casket of my ex-wife and departed as I refused to create a scene. My children are completely distraught over the events. This was a day to honor Whitney. I doubt Whitney would have wanted this to occur. I will continue to pay my respects to my ex-wife the best way I know how.”
That’s all well and good, but TMZ (via Celebuzz) paints a very different picture:
According to TMZ, the New Edition member got into it with Whitney’s family over whether or not he could bring nine people into the church. Brown had been invited to the service and was allowed to bring two guests. However, Bobby showed up to the Saturday memorial with nine other people. His party was not granted entrance as the church did not have enough seats for Bobby’s entourage.
TMZ’s version of the story does confirm that, for whatever reason, Bobby Brown was not permitted to sit with daughter Bobbi Kristina.

Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown famously co-starred on the Bravo reality joint, “Being Bobby Brown” and now their 18-year-old daughter Bobbi Kristina is ready to have a show of her own.
Amid rumors of drug addiction and a sex tape, the teenager might be laying her life bare on the small screen soon in her own reality show – news she Tweeted about on Thursday.
“PS EVERYONE ! Guess what ?! _ we are currently in the process of meetings about starting my very OWN! RealityShow!!” she wrote.
“The world needs 2know me 4who I REALLY am_ U all will get 2see my everyday living_ walk with me thro startin my career. . EVERYTHING,” she signed with happy faces.
As much as I’d love to see this go down, I’m concerned that an 18-year-old with a troubled family life and rumored drug use won’t have a chance if she turns to reality TV. When her parents exposed their oddities on reality TV, they were already established and successful. Bobbi’s still a child in many ways and putting anything negative about herself out there could really harm her future.
Jesus, when did I become so responsible?
