Bobbi Kristina and Nick are an item. (Credit: SDFL/Splash News)What would Whitney Houston think of this? The late singer's 19-year-old daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown emerged in Atlanta on Monday holding hands with Nick Gordon — whom Houston "adopted" a decade ago. Stranger yet, the twosome openly kissed each other passionately on their way to pick up pizza, lending credence to the reports that Brown and Gordon, 22, are together. And the couple is not trying to hide their feelings. Last week, Gordon posted a photo of him and Brown together on Twitter with the message, "Yea we got a little closer and what," while Brown has been re-tweeting all the virtual well-wishes she has received from fans on her new relationship.
But not everyone is happy for the new couple. Regardless of the fact that the two grew up together in same household (Houston took him in when his mother was sent to jail), some of Brown's relatives believe that Gordon is only with the teen because he wants to get his hands on the $10 million she's set to receive from her mother's estate. Houston left everything to her daughter and not a dime to the "son" she raised — which is very telling. According to TMZ, Cissy Houston, Whitney's mother, thinks the romance is "incestuous" and that Brown is just taking advantage of Brown, and she has her lawyers working on getting him evicted from the $1.2 townhouse in Atlanta, where Brown currently lives.
When Brown and Gordon stepped out on Monday, the teen was sporting what looked to be an engagement ring on her left hand. According to Star magazine, Gordon proposed to Brown on March 10 — and she accepted. "Krissy said Nick is the only person she trusts in the world," a source told the tabloid. "They have a very deep connection."
