Bobbi Kristina And Nick Gordon NOT Legally Married, Says Bobby Brown
Bobbi Kristina Brown and Nick Gordon are NOT married, according to her father Bobby Brown. An attorney for the New Edition performer says in a statement Tuesday evening, “Bobbi Kristina is not and has never been married to Nick Gordon.”
The Houston family reportedly backs up Bobby Brown’s statement that she and Gordon never officially wed. The revelation comes in the wake of speculation that Gordon could inherit all of the late Whitney Houston’s estate that was left to Bobbi Kristina when the superstar died in 2012. Now it seems there would be no legal standing for that to happen.
As Gossip Cop reported at the time, Bobbi Kristina announced her engagement to Gordon in 2013. There was an immediate backlash as most people believed they were brother and sister, since Houston took Gordon in as a child and raised him as part of the family. But Bobbi Kristina hit back, saying, “Let me clear up something, we aren’t even real brother and sister nor is he my adoptive brother. My mom never adopted him. In fact, mommy was the one who even said that she knew that we were going to start dating. My mom knows me better than any of you.”
Then, in early 2014, a rep confirmed to Gossip Cop that Bobbi Kristina and Gordon had tied the knot. The couple shared a photo of their wedding rings, though she revealed they hadn’t yet had an actual wedding ceremony. “Nothing is ever official until it’s done under the eyes of god,” she wrote online. Now sources are indicating that there was nothing legally done whatsoever either.
But while the Houstons and Browns are in agreement about the 21-year-old’s marital status, or lack thereof, they are battling about her care as she remains in a medically-induced coma. Bobbi Kristina has been moved from North Fulton Hospital in Roswell, Georgia, to Emory University Hospital in Atlanta for further neurological treatment, and, ccording to TMZ, the two sides of the family are warring over visitation.
In the aforementioned statement, Bobby Brown’s attorney further says, “We are currently investigating the events that led to the hospitalization of Bobbi Kristina.” And, echoing his earlier comments, Brown himself says, “We continue to request privacy in this matter. Please allow for our family to deal with this matter and give Bobbi Kristina the love and support she needs at this time.” Gossip Cop will continue to have updates.
