Fans of pseudo-incestual relationships will be devastated to learn today that Bobbi Kristina Brown and her boyfriend/adopted brother Nick Gordon are on the rocks! Neither camp has spoken out, but the daughter of music legend Whitney Houston has posted some revealing tweets that suggest there is serious trouble in paradise. We know, we know – we thought they were going to last forever, too! At least they’ll see each other at Christmas. And, you know, all other family holidays.
The social media rant started on Monday evening, when Bobbi kicked off a series of frustrated messages by writing “I’m leaving, this this good ole town and driving to the send of the world. Maybe it’s beautiful there (: Xxxo” Things got more pointed (and less grammatically accurate) soon afterwards, as the tweet avalanche begins in full force. “Who do I trust in this world? Pfft well that’s easy beezie, #Myself, No1 will kno’s me like ME&They’d rather not take thtchance2knoME, &2me. That’s incredibly fine .. Because you’d be missing out on a #REALperson. Xxo #amryofme #onmyown #goingtomakeit #determined. ” We had some trouble translating all the text-speak, but it seems like she’s pissed.
So there we were, checking out photos of Bobbi Kristina Brown, her brother-lover Nick Gordon, soul legend Cissy Houston at the rest of the Houston/Brown crew at last night’s red carpet premiere party for The Houstons: On Our Own. But then it slowly dawned on us: It seemed pretty rough. Don’t get us wrong, everyone looked great as they strolled into New York’s Tribeca Grand Hotel. But they just seemed so visibly uncomfortable, as if they were being ordered down the red carpet at gun point. The forced frozen smiles, the awkwardly stiff poses. Don’t get us wrong, we’ve had way more than our fair share of unflattering photos over the years. But it was like the Houston’s would rather be anywhere else, and it bummed us out! Although we get that they’ve been through a lot, and it has to be pretty rough to have your most private moments paraded in front of the public. But then…don’t do a reality show? Who knows, maybe they’re still just freaked out about Bobbi Kristina’s engagement to her adopted brother. We would be too! Check out our seven most painfully awkward photos from last night’s premiere in the gallery below!
Here’s a reality TV hook that tops them all! Bobbi Kristina Brown announced her engagement to “adopted brother” Nick Gordon to her family as the cameras rolled for her new Lifetime series The Houstons: On Our Own. Umm…ok, we’ll bite. The first trailer for the show has dropped, and Bobbi’s relationship with Nick is featured front and center. The clip starts off with the couple being cringe-ily couple-y, snugging and donning matching outfits as her family diagnose her with a bad case of “Nick-itis.” Emotions are already raw between the relatives as they cope with the recent passing of Bobbi’s mother Whitney Houston as well as her father Bobby Brown’s substance problems. So the Bobbi-Nick shack-up is probably not helping matters much.
“There’s more to life than having a boyfriend,” her aunt Pat insists to her. But Bobbi isn’t having it. “It’s kind of like Charlie Brown, all I hear is ‘wah wah wah.'” the 19-year-old deadpans to the camera. But s–t gets real when she drops the engagement bomb on the Houston clan. Some of the crew don’t seem happy with Bobbi’s decision, and discuss the weirdness of having Nick go from being a godson to being a son-in-law. Bobbi Kristina may not have carried on the musical legacy of her famous parents, but she definitely is carrying on the tradition of giving us amazingly train-wrecky reality shows.
UPDATE: A rep told CNN today that this teaser does not necessarily confirm that Bobbi and Nick are engaged. Uh-huh.
