Despite much hand-wringing and public shows of disapproval from her family, Bobbi Kristina Brown, daughter of the late Whitney Houston and R&B singer bobby Brown, has married Nick Gordon, a man whom was raised by her mother since he was 12-years-old, reports L.A. Times.
Brown announced her engagement to Gordon during a 2012 episode of “The Houstons: On Our Own,” but the young couple allegedly called it off a month later.

As previously reported by NewsOne, Whitney’s mother Cissy Houston penned an open letter to her granddaughter, repeating that she did not want her to get married:
“Krissi, all I want for you is your good health and your happiness,” wrote Houston. “I want you to have a good life that you can be proud of. Do I want you to get married in the near future? No, I don’t. I think you’re too young and I wish you’d wait. But that’s because I’m Grandma. I’m supposed to worry about you. I’m supposed to wonder If Nick or ANY man is good enough for you, My Baby’s Baby. I’m not angry with Nick and I don’t think, nor did I ever say anything hurtful about him to anyone. I have NEVER publicly commented on your personal life and I don’t intend to. So in the future when you read or hear that Cissy Houston said this or Cissy Houston said that, be confident in the knowledge that it isn’t true.”
Bobbi Kristina tweeted details of new marriage yesterday:
Time will tell if the Houston clan grows to accept a marriage of which none of them approve. But, in the mean time, congratulations to the happy newlyweds.
