After months of publicly denying reports, Bobbi Kristina and her adopted brother are coming clean about their relationship. Bobbi Kristina, 19, and Nick Gordon, 22, have long been spotted being affectionate in public, but maintained that the death of their late mother Whitney Houston simply brought them much, much closer.
Now however the shroud of secrecy is off and the two are sharing news of their engagement. In a promo video for the couple’s new reality show, “The Houstons: On Our Own” an obviously nervous Bobbi Kristina tells her family, “We’re engaged!” Several scenes then show the couple kissing and canoodling affectionately in public.
When the show premieres Oct. 24 on Lifetime, viewers will delve deeper into the odd relationship between Brown and Gordon while her aunt Pat, uncle Gary and disapproving grandmother Cissy Houston look on. One scene in particular will show Cissy wondering aloud, “I don’t get why she [Bobbi Kristina] don’t like me.” A press release from the program says the Houston family is still working to “pick up the pieces” in the wake of Whitney’s death.
