19-year-old Bobbi Kristina was spotted smooching and holding hands with 22-year-old Nick Gordon; it is rumored that the two are engaged and living together. Gordan was raised by Whitney Houston since he was 12 years old. The pair grew up as brother and sister, but Gordon was never formally adopted.
Bobbi Kristina has been through a lot since her mother died; she has been hospitalized twice in the past month for anxiety and other reports claim that she received care after combining alcohol and prescription drugs.
Following her hospitalization, Bobby Brown released a statement obtained by OnTheRedCarpet.com which read, “My daughter Bobbi Kristina is doing much better. We continue to provide love and support to Bobbi Kristina. She is dealing with the tragedy of her mother’s death and would prefer to do it outside of the public eye. I ask again that our privacy be respected.”
ABC News reported on Wednesday that Gordon said he and Bobbi Kristina were not dating, “We’re just close — just going through her mom’s passing and grieving together.” He went on to say that Whitney considered him her Godson.
Gordon reportedly talked about his relationship with Bobbi Kristina Brown on his Twitter page, however, the account has been stripped of nearly all of its Tweets.
In the following picture you can see that Bobbi is wearing is wearing a large diamond ring that signifies that she is engaged:
But a family friend of the Houston’s said, “Yes, they are engaged, but the family is trying to coax her away from it.”
The couple supposedly became engaged on March 10th.
Cissy Houston, Bobbi Kristina’s maternal grandmother, is furious about the relationship, according to TMZ she thinks, “What they’re doing is incestuous.” In fact she is so mad that she is taking steps to evict Gordan from Whitney’s Estate.
A source said: “Krissy has told her grandmother that she doesn’t need her blessing to marry Nick, and the more Cissy objects to the relationship, well that only cements Krissy’s decision,” Star magazine reports. Bobbi Kristina has had several heated arguments with Cissy about the engagement, and the 19 year old has said “my mother would have approved of me marrying Nick, and I’m going to do it.”
Bobbi will inherit her mother’s fortune which is approximately $10 million. Hopefully this isn’t a get rich quick scheme for Gordan.
