Bobbi Kristina, Whitney Houston’s Daughter, Marries Brother?


Bobbi Kristina is marrying her adoptive brother, Nick Gordon. Bobbi, the biological daughter of Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown, wrote in a Facebook post about the wedding, “YES, we me nick are engaged. 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.”

It should be noted that although Nick Gordon was not formally adopted, Whitney Houston called him “son” and brought him into the household when he was ten years old.

The two even referred to each other as “big brudder” and “lil sis” on Twitter.

This feels less creepy than Woody Allen who married his adoptive daughter Soon-Yi Previn, after having had raised her. What do you think: is Bobbi Kristina marrying her semi-adoptive brother wrong? Is this incest? Is this two consenting adults? Is it weird?
