More than a year after a rep for Bobbi Kristina denied rumors that she was engaged to her “adopted” brother Nick Gordon, the 23-year-old daughter of Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown has announced that they are indeed planning to marry.
“YES, we me [and] nick are engaged,” she posted on Facebook early Wednesday. She went on to address some negative feedback from fans regarding their relationship.
Bobbi Kristina continued:
“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 yall 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.”
