Years ago, the late Whitney Houston opened her home to 12-year-old Nick Gordon, a boy whose birth mother could no longer care for him. The legendary singer never legally adopted Gordon, but raised him as her son for more than a decade alongside her younger daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown. When Whitney suddenly passed away in 2012, Bobbi Kristina was consumed with grief and seemed to find comfort in perhaps the only other person who could understand her pain. Soon, rumors began to swirl that she and Gordon had begun a romantic relationship. Then, the two dropped a bombshell a year after Whitney's death: They were engaged.
The relationship raised a lot of eyebrows and drew criticism from fans and family alike. Still, Bobbi Kristina and Gordon wed, announcing their marriage on Twitter earlier this year.
