Bobbi Kristina Brown has confirmed she’s engaged to boyfriend Nick Gordon, who was raised by her mother, Whitney Houston, since he was 12.
Rumors about the couple's engagement have swirled before, but this time it's legit. "Yes, me nick (sic) are engaged," she confirmed on her Facebook page.
Even though Nick and Bobbi aren't related by blood, some people have referred to them as brother and sister because they were raised partly in the same house.
“I’m tired of hearing people say ‘eww your (sic) engaged to your brother or if Whitney was still alive would we be together or would she approve of this," Bobbi wrote. "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.” Last year, the couple got matching tattoos - the initials WH surrounded by doves - in honor of Whitney.
Bobbi, whose father is singer Bobby Brown, added, “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.”
When engagement rumors first started going around last fall, In Touch spoke with Bobbi, who said her mother would be ecstatic over her relationship with Nick. “She would be very, very happy,” she told In Touch. “Our family stuck together through it all. We’re all still a big family. We’re all still one family.”
