Nick Gordon & Bobbi Kristina Brown
Nick Gordon is the husband of Bobbi Kristina Brown. The two endured a lot of ridicule from the public as well as family because of their relationship. Gordon was like a brother to Brown though he was never formally adopted by Whitney Houston, which made others believe their relationship was not a good idea. Whitney Houston took in Gordon when he was reportedly 9 years old and when Brown was just 6 years old after learning his birth mother could no longer care for him, so the two were pretty much raised as brother and sister. They have bonded over the years with the love of their mother Whitney Houston and mourn her death together. The Huffington Post reported: The legendary singer never legally adopted Gordon, but raised him as her son for more than a decade alongside her younger daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown. When Whitney suddenly passed away in 2012, Bobbi Kristina was consumed with grief and seemed to find comfort in perhaps the only other person who could understand her pain. One thing that always rubbed outsiders the wrong way was that the two had referred to each other as "lil sis" and "big brudder" on social media.
Some Of The Houstons See Gordon As a Bad Influence
When it comes to how the family feels about Nick Gordon, himself, they don't all view him in the best light. A source told People that: Nick knew that a lot of the family weren't fans of his; he sort of kept her away from some of her family members because he didn't want [the family] to say bad things about him to [Bobbi Kristina]. Everyone had a preconceived notion about him, and it wasn't always fair. But he didn't do himself any favors. He was disrespectful a lot of the time, always 'f' this and 'f' that, using language that Cissy didn't approve of. To her face. If there's one thing that Cissy doesn't stand for, it's people who swear in front of her. On the family's reality show "The Houstons: On Our Own," the rocky relationship of Brown and Gordon was shown where Gordon was hitting on another girl while Brown was still wrapped up in him. The two were living together and were on and off-again with their relationship over the years. Despite this, they ended up reconciling and marrying last January.
Gordon's Legal Issues
In August 2014, Gordon was arrested for a DUI after his car flipped when he accidentally hit a curb while trying to change lanes. TMZ reported: Gordon (who is married to Whitney Houston's daughter Bobbi Kristina) lost control of his BMW, hit a curb, took out a fire hydrant and flipped his car upside down. We're told it finally came to a rest after sliding around 200 feet. When cops arrived on scene, we're told they discovered Nick was driving on a suspended license and cops felt Gordon's behavior gave them probable cause to arrest him for DUI. In addition to the DUI, just a week before Brown was found unresponsive in her bath tub, police came to her home with Gordon because of a "fight."
