The late Whitney Houston is said to have raised Nick Gordon as if he was her own son, putting him up in her home as a young boy, but now he is set to marry her daughter. Bobbi Kristina announced the news via Facebook, and was eager to set the record straight on her association with her fiance.
A little background on the couple, Kristina and Gordon were reportedly engaged this past year, but called it off, only to announce their plans to marry once again this past Tuesday, July 9. Houston's daughter wrote on her Facebook page:
"YES, we me 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.' 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 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. 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"
Gordon also attempted to clear up rumors in a series of tweets that read: "Let's get some facts straight. I'm 24. I moved in when I was 16. Her mother told me to call her Mom. ...To everybody's surprise she wanted Krissi and I married. She took me in as a son and treated me as such. Rip. ...not explaining. Just a brother getting sick of everybody having the wrong info. ...@REALbkBrown I love you baby."
Look we don't care about any of that negative ppl talk. When your love is like ours! We are in our own little world.— Nick Gordon (@nickdgordon) July 11, 2013
The 20-year-old Kristina showed off her ring bling on Instagram this past week, writing: "My gorgeous fiance @nickdgordon & I on the boardwalk."
