Bobbi Kristina gets engaged and defensive

Bobbi Kristina Brown, daughter of the late Whitney Houston, got engaged to Nick Gordon -- and she'd like everyone to stop saying "eww" about that, because it's not as if they're brother and sister or anything. Of course, the reason some people might say "eww" in the first place is because Nick was informally "adopted" by Whitney when he was 12 and grew up under the same roof as Bobbi Kristina, now 20. "I'm tired of hearing people say 'eww your engaged to your brother or if Whitney was still alive would we be together or would she approve of this," she posted on Facebook. "Let me clear up something, we aren't even real brother and sister nor is he my adoptive brother," she continued. "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. A lot of yall are saying that yall are only saying this all out of love. Which is bull because if that was so, all you would want is for me to be happy."
