Is Bobbi Kristina engaged? Tongues are wagging that the 19-year-old daughter of Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown is indeed tying the knot with Nick Gordon, a boy she grew up with and has often referred to as her “brother.” TMZ reports that Bobbi Kristina and Nick–who Whitney adopted unofficially ten years ago–held a BBQ this week in which they shared their joy with friends. Allegedly, the duo kissed in front of everyone and the result was shock. A source shared with TMZ that “one friend felt the ’relationship’ was the result of each of them taking the death of Whitney too hard” and the rest of the function was extremely awkward.
On March 15, TMZ shared video footage of the duo cuddling up and stated that Bobbi’s grandmother, Cissy Houston, did not approve of the relationship. Cissy supposedly told “a close friend,” “What they’re doing is incestuous” and felt that her granddaughter was being taken advantage of. In November, Bobbi Kristina tweeted,”I love sleeping with big brudder (: only person that helps my insomnia B!! Hah (:”
Bobbi K. has been at the center of media attention since her mother’s untimely death on February 11. On March 8, it was reported that Whitney left her beloved only daughter all of her possessions in her will.
According to the Associated Press, the will doesn’t mention the specific assets left behind by the “I Will Always Love You”?singer, but it leaves all of Houston’s furnishings, clothing, personal effects, jewelry and cars to Bobbi Kristina.
The news was first reported by “Inside Edition,” which said the 19-page document was released on Wednesday in Atlanta. The money will be placed in a trust until Bobbi turns 21. She will then get more money when she turns 25 and the remainder when she turns 30.
