  • Whitney Houston's daughter photographed kissing 'brother'

    The grieving daughter of Whitney Houston is apparently engaged to her ‘brother’ Nick Gordon, a romance that her grandmother has blasted ‘incestuous.’

    Bobbi Kristina has been photographed kissing 22-year-old Nick Gordon, who Whitney adopted when he was 12 after his father was sent to prison and his own mother was unable to look after him, and the couple are rumoured to be secretly engaged.

    The 19-year-old daughter of Whitney has been sporting a ring on her wedding finger but the union is causing concern for some – mainly Bobbi’s grandmother, Cissy Houston.

    Cissy has apparently branded their relationship incestuous, telling TMZ.com that her granddaughter has problems, which Nick is taking advantage of. ‘What they’re doing is incestuous,’ she is quoted as saying.

    She is so concerned that Bobbi is being taken advantage of that she is asking the Whitney Houston Estate to take legal steps to get him evicted from Whitney’s $1.2million Atlanta townhouse where the two are living.


    Undeterred by her grandmother’s stinging comments about her controversial relationship, Bobbi has apparently accepted Nick’s wedding proposal and doesn’t care what her family make of it.

    A source told TMZ.com that Bobbi ‘can’t please everyone, so she is going to please herself by doing what she wants to do for once.’
