The late Whitney Houston’s daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown has announced she is engaged . And rather than celebrate the good news, she’s defending it instead! That’s because the groom-to-be is Nick Gordon, the man who Whitney raised through his teen years as her own son … and a “brother” to Bobbi-K.
Their relationship has raised eyebrows but the 2o-year-old posted a long message on her Facebook page early Wednesday morning, announcing the big news and going on to explain the complex nature of their relationship. Here’s what she had to say:
“YES, we me nick (sic) are engaged. I’m tired of hearing people say “eww your 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. In fact, 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 ‘yall 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. 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.
