Bobbi Kristina: Engaged To Former Play Brother Nick Gordon
The 20-year-old aspiring singer shared news of her engagement on Facebook on Wednesday. She also took time to clarify her and Nick’s prior relationship.
“Yes, me and Nick are engaged. I’m tired of hearing people say, ‘Eww you’re engaged to your brother’ or ‘If Whitney was still alive, would we be together or would she approve of this?'” she wrote. “Let me clear up something, we aren’t even real brother and sister, nor is he my adoptive brother. My mom never adopted him. In fact, mommy was the one who even said that she knew that we were going to start dating.”
Houston took in Nick when he was 12-years-old and he live with the family throughout his teenage years. Despite that, Bobbi Kristina said her late mother would have been happy about their relationship.
“My mom knows me better than any of you,” she continued. “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.”
Tired of the public backlash she’s received for dating Nick, The star of Lifetime’s “The Houstons: On Our Own” continued, “People need to seriously stop judging my relationship. Pretty sure it’s my own decision who I want to be with. Yes, my relationship may not be perfect. We will have rough patches, just like every other relationship. And we have had our rough patches. You may or may not agree with my relationship. You may or may not respect it. Judge me, go ahead. Your opinions are yours and mine are mine. It is my life and not yours. The decisions I make have nothing to do with you. Goodnight.”
Bobbi Kristina referred to Gordon as her “gorgeous fiancé” in an Instagram caption on July 3. She declared she’s “madly in love with this phenomenal man” and said she’s “truly happier than ever.”
The two were reportedly engaged last year, but called off their engagement in November 2012 because Bobbi Kristina’s family members disapproved of their relationship.
