Nick Gordon and Bobbi Kristina Brown spilled the beans about her secret wedding during a recent interview with “Extra.” The newlyweds, who announced their marriage on Twitter January 9, said naysayers encouraged them to move forward with their relationship.
“It put a fire in us,” Nick said. “The critics can say whatever they want to say…it’s like we have a force field and that s–t’s just bouncing off of it.”
“It lit a fire up under our ass and we went haulin’,” Bobbi chimed in.
As far as the brother-sister rumors, the husband and wife reiterated that they are not related.
Nick said, “Me calling [Whitney Houston] mom, this where everybody gets the…” Bobbi injected, “Brother and sister…” Nick added, “We were young. Krissy looked at me as an older brother, and I looked at her as a little sister.”
“She just treated me like she gave birth to me,” he added. “She treated me like a son. Excuse me for saying this… she treated me better than my birth mother. I owe everything to her.”
Bobbi also told “Extra” that her grandma, Cissy Houston, was a big supporter of their union.
“She told both of us that she loved us very, very, very much, and Nick came up and he said ‘Grandma, I want to marry her. Is it okay? I need your blessing to do this, if I don’t have your blessing I won’t feel right,’ and she looked at him and she smiled. She smiled very wide and said, ‘Yes, son, you have my blessing,’” she said.
In conclusion, the 20-year-old bride said her late mother would have loved to seek her walk down the aisle. “She wanted this,” Bobbi smiled. “This is something she wanted to see.”
