Whitney Houston’s family has been through its share of disagreements since the pop diva passed away on February 11, 2012. Early on, there was trouble at the funeral, sparking concerns of a feud with Bobby Brown. Recently, however, the trouble has centered around Nick Gordon. Gordon was raised and treated like a son by Whitney Houston, from the time he was 12 years old.
Rather than looking at Whitney Houston's Daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown, as a sister, Gordon (now age 24) and Bobbi Kristina (who just turned 21) have recently gotten married. The tabloids are having fun with that relationship! Whitney’s mother, Cissy Houston, reportedly called the relationship “incestuous” when they were dating. Now that they are actually married, TMZ says Cissy was furious, but she hasn’t spoken publicly about it since then.
Other family members are not keeping quiet. In fact, the co-executor of Whitney Houston’s estate, sister-in-law Pat Houston, obtained a restraining order against Gordon recently. The restraining order was obtained because Pat says Gordon has made threatening comments and posted pictures of guns. She took the legal action just weeks after TMZ reported that Gordon was violently beaten by one of Whitney’s nephews, during a fight at a Houston family function.
Although you should take tabloid reports with a grain of skepticism, there can be no question that Bobbi Kristina’s marriage to Gordon has set off fireworks in Whitney Houston’s family. And the timing is noteworthy. Bobbi Kristina just turned 21 a few weeks ago.
