Should We Care About Bobbi Kristina Dating Whitney’s God Son?

When reports came out that Bobbi Kristina was hooking up with Whitney Houston’s secret son, they seemed too sensational to pay any mind. For one, Whitney didn’t have a secret son. Nick Gordon was her unofficially adopted child whom she often referred to as her God son, and the implication of a sordid brother-sister relationship was just uncomfortable.

But since that time, stories have escalated to sitings of these two kissing in public, to secret engagements, which seems even more laughable, except for one factor: Nick appears to be confirming their romantic involvement. The 22-year-old who hasn’t spoken publicly on his relationship with Whitney—and who says he never will—has taken to Twitter to speak on rumors of his relationship with Bobbi Kristina, and essentially deny rumors of incest. He tweeted:

Yea we got a little closer and what!!!

For the stupid ppl out there she gave birth to 1 child. And she trusted me with EVERYTHING!!!!!!!!!!!!!

She called me her me ” God Son” I swear some ppl in this world act like they don’t have a brain…

@ndgordon & @REALbkBrown

Nick retweeted several positive reactions from followers as well who showed their approval for his and Bobbi Kristina’s relationship and the support he’s shown for her throughout her loss. One message read, “No blood relation, he was only taken in by Whitney at age 12… Can see how that might happen;” and another, “As long as you two continue to be there for each other, that’s all that matters. =)!” The nature of Nick’s reaction to gossip reports begs the question, is there really a scandal here?

A major part of the frenzy is the media looking for a way to keep Bobbi in the headlines, and of course the idea of two young adults who were raised as brother and sister now being romantically involved is going to raise eyebrows. The other part of the concern is people seeing this situation as a part of Bobbi’s grief and that she’s prematurely, and perhaps inappropriately, running into the arms of a man she’s now become too close with for the comfort of people who have no baring on her day-to-day life anyway.  And truthfully, nothing about the relationship Nick alludes to sounds new or strikingly indecent.

As he shared through his tweets, Nick’s role in Bobbi’s life has always been to protect her, and just last year he rescued Bobbi in an altercation with her ex-boyfriend that involved drinking underage. The fact that he identified himself as “Krissi’s brother” to police during the incident does make these two’s rumored romantic relationship seem all the more sketchy, but who am I or anyone else to judge?

I think there would be a bigger need for concern if Bobbi didn’t have someone she’s known for 10 years by her side during this time, or if Nick was the type to take up interview offers and try to fatten his pockets by revealing private details of his life with the Houston’s. The media truthfully knows nothing about this man which makes him all the more intriguing, but from what he’s shared through social media he seems to be a young guy who has Bobbi Kristina’s best interest at heart. And at the end of the day, that’s what she needs now more than anything.

Do you believe the rumors that Bobbi Kristina is involved with Nick Gordon? Do you think the relationship is odd or does it make sense?

    He is making SURE that he benefits from the money Whitney left to Bobbi K…this is a tragic situation about to get a thousand times WORSE. Any person that is a GOD CHILD to my parent(s) is just like a blood relative to me which means FAMILY IS OFF LIMITS.

    He’s not blood…not an adopted child, so no foul.  But, since she is vulnerable emotionally, I understand the need to be cautious, even with someone she has known most of her life.

    These 2 must had something going on before the death of Whitney. If she was grieving the right way she wouldn’t even want to date anyone so quick. You don’t have to be bf and gf to help someone, you can only be a friend. I call this no deccency. Kristina mind trouble your mother is not here to save your *** anymore.

    • Mrsadkiah

      What is grieving the right way?

  • Mika585

    This is so irrelevant.  They aren’t blood related so who cares?

    The question is: Who is taking care of Nick Gordon now?  Whitney didn’t leave him any money.   It makes sense to latch onto Bobbi.  She was his sister last year but now they’re a couple now that he’s assed out???  Hmmmmm, I don’t know about this. 

    Like I said before, people are going to rob that girl BLIND!!

     Should “we” care?? It’s none of my business. I got my own problems.

    They aren’t related. Just because he’s adopted doesn’t mean she felt or treated or loved him like a brother. 

  • mscpa2u

    Wow leave that girl alone already. Who knows what Whitney knew as they matured.

  • mochaaa

    i find it so odd that someone would consider dating a  guy who they’ve considered to be like a “brother” to them. makes you wonder what happened between the two of them when they were younger. spending nights together in the same room. ugh creepy. but anyway they aren’t biologically related.
    another point id like to make is why would someone propose to you immediately following the passing of your mom. hmmm

  • LisaLuvless

    This has nothing to do with the topic but Bobbi get bangs or pull your lacefront a couple inches down..
    And close the gap, that’s a sure way to distance yourself from your father instead of a last name change..well at least look wise..
    On her personal life foh,kids mom just died gtf outta her business. ( I do realize I’m no better cause I spoke of her looks in that pic)

    • IllyPhilly

       LMAO! That’s all I could see as well. How do you get a mom like Whitney Houston, but turn out looking like Bobby Brown?
