You know how when Prince William and Kate got engaged, there were all these jerks hawking replicas of her ring everywhere? Well Nick Gordon, the “adopted brother”/boyfriend of Whitney Houston’s daughter Bobbi Kristina just proposed to her with one of those things. You can buy the damn ring on Overstock.com for $69.99. Now, it’s not that I think it’s shitty that he got her a cheap ass ring — it’s just that getting a Kate Middleton replica ring is totally … lame.
Today in “Real Royal Tenenbaums News” … the internet is aflutter with the rumor that Bobbi Kristina Brown — 19-year-old daughter of the late Whitney Houston — is dating 22-year-old Nick Gordon. Gordon lived with Whitney and Bobbi Kristina from the time he was 12 (though Houston never officially adopted him) and served as an older brother figure to Bobbi Kris. Apparently, the romance rumors started when Gordon tweeted the above photo (which some suggest has, like, sexy overtones?) and referred to her in the possessive (“MY Krissi”). Then he responded to the rumors, writing on Twitter, “Yea we got a little closer and what!!!!” never denying that the two are an item and retweeting those who defended the (alleged) romance. So, while it’s not a direct confirmation, it’s not a denial either. So, yeah… [Twitter via Crushable]
