It’s always been clear that Whitney Houston‘s family was none too pleased about Bobbi Kristina marrying her “adopted brother”, Nick Gordon. While you would think they would have gotten over it by now, apparently a long-simmering feud came to the forefront during a Houston formal family event last week, where Whitney’s nephew, Gary Michael, beat the shit out of Nick.
We’re told Whitney’s nephew, Gary Michael Houston, went nuclear on Bobbi Kristina’s husband, Nick Gordon … SLAMMING him to the floor and pummeling his face — accusing him of talking crap about the family.
Family sources tell us … it all went down at a Sweet 16 party for Whitney’s niece, Rayah. We’re told it was a formal affair — everyone in tuxes and long gowns — but Nick showed up in a hoodie and knit cap and “lookin’ like a thug.”
Gary felt Gordon had insulted the family one too many times … as soon as the party was over, he delivered the beat down. We’re told it was a lopsided fight — Nick didn’t even get in a single punch.
Here are some nice tweets for you to enjoy between the two, as well. So much drama – Whitney’s probably rolling in her grave.
He still kinda sore from that last trip I sent him on smh….. I tried to tell him to buckle up lol

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?

Ray J (yes, the I hit it I hit it I hit it I hit it I hit it I hit it first Ray J) was allegedly involved with Whitney Houston before her death. Like, right before. When police went to collect her body, he apparently overheard some of them making fun of her naked, dead body. This whole thing is just bizarre and sad. From TMZ, via Daily Freeman:
Sources reportedly told the website Ray J heard a “disrespectful comment” about Houston, followed by loud laughter. He reportedly got angry and tried to get inside, but was restrained. After the scenario repeated itself, he was removed from the floor.
Reports surfaced earlier this week that a police officer has filed a claim against the Beverly Hill Police Department, reporting that he was demoted after reporting a colleague picked up the sheet covering the lower half of Houston’s body and made a comment about how she looked.
I mean really, that’s just terrible. Terrible for Whitney, for her family, and for Ray J. Not even Ray J deserves something like that.

Most stars get one wax figure at Madame Tussauds (if any), but Whitney Houston‘s got four. Representing the singer at various points in her lengthy career, the figures – which were unveiled to commemorate the upcoming one year anniversary of her death – will each appear at a different Madame Tussauds location around the world.
Houston’s manager and sister-in-law Pat Houston said in a statement:
“We were extremely honored when Madame Tussauds approached us about doing four figures of Whitney from different points in her 30-year career. This is something we are excited to do for the fans.”
The figures will debut in New York on Thursday. That Bodyguard Whitney is fierce, right?

Whitney Houston‘s death in early 2012 was a tragedy – one that was shocking despite her decades long struggle with substance abuse and inability to overcome the demons which led her to such self-abuse. It was an event in pop culture that affected nearly everyone, so widespread was Whitney’s impact, but perhaps saddest of all was the fact that she left behind a 17-year-old daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown, who absolutely adored her mother despite her faults.
It’s bad enough that Whitney’s brother recently admitted that he was responsible for turning the late singer on to hard drugs, but Bobbi is now speaking out against her grandmother Cissy Houston’s new book on Whitney’s life, which she finds “disrespectful” and over-the-top.
ANYTHING concerning mygrandmothersBook•I& @nickdgordon OFCOURSE personally haveNOTHING2dowith• I ask youplsRESPECT tht•Haven’t read&won’t•
I find it 2B Disrespect2MYMOTHER & me being HERDAUGHTER won’t tolerate it. I LOVEYOUALL for your support though & I thank you immensely••xO!
Try to translate teenagespeak into English: Bobbi’s mad and Grandma’s in the shit. I don’t know what’s in this book and part of me doesn’t really care, but I think it’s pretty disgusting that she wants to make money off her daughter less than a year after she passed away. I’m team BK on this one.

From Oprah’s Next Chapter:
While growing up in New Jersey, Whitney Houston was close to both of her big brothers, Gary and Michael. Since his sister’s death, Michael, who many in the family called Whitney’s twin, hasn’t spoken publicly. Now, Michael reveals how he introduced Whitney to drugs in the ’80s, long before Whitney married Bobby Brown.
Here’s some memorable quotes from dude’s interview with Oprah regarding his sister:
I’m living, but I’m not alive. …. I felt responsible for her, I always have. … It’s painful. I feel responsible for her. I let it go so far. You know, we were always … being together most of the time, her following behind me, you know … and then when you get into drugs, you do that together, too, and it just got out of hand. The drugs were rough. … Yeah, we did everything together, so once I was into that [drugs], then she followed suit.
Later in the interview, Whitney’s brother states that the first time she ever did cocaine was with him, and that it’s a “demon” that he needs to face every day. What a sad, sad situation all around. Really. The whole thing is just miserable and disappointing and wrong.
And also? Wow. We’ve been this hard on Bobby Brown all this damn time for no reason? Oh, wait, no—no, Bobby was still a beater and a cheater and siring a daughter who’s got incest issues. Hm. I guess there are reasons, but not the reasons that he’s most famous for. Good Lord.
