The June 18 wedding of Bobby Brown and Alicia Etheridge was marred by the absence of the groom’s daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown.
The Hollywood Gossip reported that the only daughter of the late Whitney Houston was known to hate her father. Bobbi Kristina even contemplated a name change at one point to increase the distance between them.
A source informed Us Weekly that Bobby Brown tried to reach out to his estranged daughter through a “go-between.” He asked Bobbi Kristina to attend his new nuptials because he wanted to be at peace with his daughter. But according to the Hollywood Gossip, Bobbi Kristina “told them she was not going because she did not like Alicia.” The troubled teen also declared that “she was [busy] filming her reality show with Pat Houston in New York” and wasn’t able to attend the wedding of Bobby Brown even if she wanted to.
The Us Weekly source also claimed that Bobbi Kristina Brown and her aunt Pat Houston have grown very close. The sister and former manager of Whitney Houston was “trying to act like a mother figure” to Bobbi Kristina.
“Pat does not like Bobby Brown,” the source said. Whitney’s sister was reportedly “pleased that Bobbi Kristina did not go to the wedding” of her father. Pat Houston supposedly felt that Bobbi’s father “will always try and take advantage of her.”
The Hollywood Gossip reported that the tragic death of Whitney Houston on February 11 catapulted her daughter into the spotlight. Bobbi Kristina broke down so badly after her mother died that she needed to be rushed to the hospital on numerous occasions.
“She was really her mom’s caretaker,” the Us Weekly source said of Bobbi Kristina Brown, “And biggest cheerleader and biggest fan.” The source expressed uncertainty at how Bobbi “will be able to go on” without Whitney Houston.

Bobbi Kristina Brown, daughter of the late diva Whitney Houston, will not be prosecuted for the underage gambling case she is involved in at a Las Vegas casino last month. There wasn’t enough evidence, so the case was eventually closed.
After the said incident was investigated by the enforcement division of the Nevada Gambling Control Board, Deputy Chief David Salas said that there was not sufficient evidence to prosecute Bobbi Kristina of criminal charges for underage gambling, therefore the case was eventually closed.
A video made rounds in the Internet last month, showing what appeared to be 19-year-old Bobbi Kristina Brown gambling at a slot machine, together with her 22-year-old boyfriend, Nick Gordon, at the MGM Resort and Casino. According to the law, the legal gambling age in Las Vegas is 21. Bobbi Kristina was in town that time to accept an honor for her later mother at the 2012 Billboard Music Awards.
Reports said that the MGM was very cooperative with the NGC during the investigation for the underage gambling case.
Meanwhile, cameras will also be following Bobbi Kristina Brown for the upcoming Lifetime series “The Houston Chronicles,” focusing on the family members Whitney Houston left behind.

Tyler Perry sounded ready to take Madea’s gun to RadarOnline for claiming that Bobbi Kristina Brown walked off Perry’s new show.
According to Gossip Cop, webloid RadarOnline alleged that Bobbi Kristina “has walked off her new TV show, ‘Tyler Perry’s For Better or Worse.’” In a supposedly exclusive report, RadarOnline claimed that the aspiring actress “quit the TBS comedy a few weeks ago” because she was still grieving over her late mother Whitney Houston.
A RadarOnline “insider” alleged that Bobbi Kristina Brown “walked off the set” of ‘For Better or Worse’ “so quietly that barely anyone noticed.” According to the site, it was a “fast exit for the troubled teen.”
“She thought she was ready for this,” another supposed source of RadarOnline was quoted as saying, “But she wasn’t.”
In came Tyler Perry himself to defend the daughter of Whitney Houston. Gossip Cop reported that Perry slammed the RadarOnline claims in a blog post on Wednesday.
“NOT TRUE AT ALL PEOPLE!!!” Perry thundered. “There is no way that she could have walked off the set,” he rebuked, “Because we have finished taping the season.”
In the blog, Tyler Perry talked about meeting with Bobbi Kristina Brown after the funeral of Whitney Houston. There was “no better way for me to help her move through the grieving,” Perry explained on his blog post, “Than by giving her something to focus on.”
Perry acknowledged that there were “tough days for her” on the set of ‘For Better or Worse’. However, Bobbi Kristina “managed to finish her obligation and did a great job at the same time,” Perry stated.
The Atlanta-based Madea mogul proceeded to chew out the media for taking advantage of Bobbi Kristina. “PLEASE LEAVE THIS BABY ALONE!!!!” he wrote. “AND SHE IS A BABY!!!” Tyler Perry added.
In a calmer tone, Tyler Perry called for the media to “Please stop the lies.” Perry urged that Bobbi Kristina Brown be given “some room to breathe and grieve.”

Friends of Bobbi Kristina Brown were shocked upon hearing the news that their friend is dating her adopted brother, Nick Gordon. In light of the events and the reports emerging about her relationship with her brother, Bobbi Kristina has reportedly broken her silence and confirmed to friends the news – she and Nick Gordon are indeed dating.
According to the sources, 19-year-old Bobbi Kristina Brown and 22-year-old Nick Gordon broke the news to their closest friends during a barbecue party over the weekend. The new couple are met with much skepticism, reports say. As previous articles have stated, Bobbi Kristina feels she’s not committing “incest” and that there is nothing wrong with dating her adopted brother, arguing that Nick Gordon isn’t her blood brother. A source claims that the couple’s friends didn’t believe the news at first, not until the two kissed in front of everyone, something that completely left the rest of the barbecue attendees astounded.
The late Whitney Houston unofficially took Nick Gordon into her home when he was just 12 years old, and raised him and Bobbi Kristina as “brother and sister.” Brown’s family has been reportedly “really upset” about their romantic relationship, fearing that Gordon is taking advantage of the young and impressionable Brown. Notably, a friend of her grandmother, Cissy Houston, claims that the matriarch said “what they’re doing is incestuous.”
Bobbi Kristina Brown and Nick Gordon currently reside together at the family home in Atlanta, though Cissy is taking actions to get Gordon out of the house.
A friend of the couple said she felt like the “relationship” was forming as a result of both parties mourning the death of Whitney Houston, and looking for an understanding shoulder to cry on.

Amid the reports of her alleged love affair with adopted brother Nick Gordon, Bobbi Kristina Brown does not seem too unfazed by the accusations of her grandmother. Bobbi Kristina reportedly told her friends that she will do what she wants – no matter what.
Sources close to Whitney Houston’s daughter claims that 19-year-old Bobbi Kristina Brown finally confessed to her close friends that she and 22-year-old Nick Gordon are dating. As previous reports have stated, Gordon was unofficially adopted by Whitney Houston when he was just 12 years old.
Cissy Houston saw the video of Bobbi Kristina Brown holding hands and kissing on a lunch run in Atlanta early this week. Whitney’s mom told a close friend, “What they’re doing is incestuous.”
However, Bobbi Kristina apparently couldn’t care less, telling her friends that she doesn’t care about what her grandmother thinks about her controversial relationship - and because Nick Gordon is not her blood brother, she definitely doesn’t consider it incest.
As one source put it - Bobbi Kristina Brown “can’t please everyone, so she is going to please herself by doing what she wants to do for once.”

Whitney Houston’s only daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown, may still be mourning due to the sudden demise of her mother, a legendary icon in the music industry. But amidst the reports of Bobbi Kristina reeling out of balance, rumor has it that the 19-year-old is allegedly dating Nick Gordon, her adopted brother.
According to the reports of Hollywoodlife.com, Bobbi and the 22-year-old Gordon were spotting kissing and holding hands together last Friday outside a Target store in Johns Creek, Georgia. And on Wednesday, Nick Gordon, who has lived with Whitney Houston since he was 12-years-old, confirmed his relationship status with Bobbi Kristina Brown. Gordon tweeted, “Yea we got a little closer and what!!!”
Nick Gordon also posted a picture of himself and Bobbi Kristina to his Twitter page on Friday.
The youngster, who was never officially adopted by the late singer Houston, also told fans only to follow Bobbi Kristina’s real Twitter account. He wrote: “Good morning everyone. Their lots of fake people pretending to be MY Krissi. The real one is @REALbkBrown. Fakes need to get un followed.”
Bobbi Kristina Brown has not been active on the social networking website since December, but she and Nick Gordon tweeted each other regularly in the months towards the end of last year. While the two appeared as sister and brother to each other, Nick’s latest tweets seem to suggest their relationship has become something more.
During an interview with Oprah Winfrey, Bobbi Kristina Brown opened up about her mother’s death for the first time. The teenager said she was coping with the loss of her ‘best friend’ and said she could feel her mother’s spirit with her constantly. Bobbi Kristina said, “I can hear her voice in spirit talking to me “I’m right here I’ve got you” I can always feel her with me.”
Bobbi Kristina Brown also revealed she wanted to follow her mother’s footsteps and was assertive to pursue a singing and acting career, saying, “I still have a voice – yeah we are going to do the singing thing, we are going to do the singing and the acting.”
Bobbi Kristina also told Oprah of her final day and night with her mother, before she died on February 11. The teenager explained, “The very last day, it was so early in the morning I went to go and get her I was like “Will you come and lay down with me.” She also added, “She [Whitney Houston] was rubbing my head and I slept in her arms all day and all night long.”
However, neither she nor her aunt Patricia Houston mentioned Nick Gordon during their interview.

Whitney Houston’s only child, Bobbi Kristina Brown, does not want to bear her father’s name anymore. Reports say Bobbi Kristina wants to change her name and adopt the last name of her late mother.
The 19-year-old is still in a state of mourning following the death of her mother, award-winning singer, Whitney Houston. According to reports, Bobbi Kristina Brown told her friends that she no longer wants to carry the name of her father, Bobby Brown. Apparently, the troubled teen has been wanting to change her name for several years now, but Whitney Houston would not let her. It started ever since Houston and Brown divorced five years ago.
However, since her mother died last February 11, Bobbi Kristina Brown now feels free to become her own woman and wants to be known as “Kristina Houston.”
Despite issues that Bobbi Kristina has gone astray after Whitney Houston was found dead in the bathroom of the Beverly Hilton hotel, sources claims that she is in a “better place” and made the decision of changing her name with a sober mind.
The fortune left by Whitney Houston to Bobbi Kristina Brown will be put into a trust which the teen will be given access to when she turns 21. At that time, in 2014, she will receive a portion of her inheritance, before being given another chunk at the age of 25. Bobbi Kristina will receive the rest of her inheritance in a final installment on her 30th birthday.
With Whitney leaving a total of $10,242,931 in various assets, and debts coming to $4,294,014, in theory it leaves Bobbi Kristina with an inheritance of $5,948,917. Although that stands to increase with her mother’s music now hitting the charts again. However, the family of Houston wants her daughter out of the “limelight.”
“There are people who just want her to stay out of the limelight for a while. This is a little girl who just needs some time,” a source told People magazine.

The death of Whitney Houston clearly devastated a lot of people, including her fans and co-stars in the music industry. But it does not devastate them any more than the daughter of Whitney Houston, Bobbi Kristina Brown, whom family members fear might be suicidal.
The 18-year-old Bobbi Kristina Brown was reportedly rushed to the hospital on Saturday night – just within 12 hours following the untimely death of Whitney Houston – and then was brought again Sunday morning after she consumed a mixture of actual cocktails and prescription sedatives, presumably to numb or maybe even ease the pain of the loss of her mother. Relatives are now in the grip of fear that Bobbi Kristina Brown may in fact be suicidal. Reports say Bobbi Kristina Brown was “hysterical, exhausted and inconsolable.”
Some sources who are close to the family told TMZ, they believe Bobbi Kristina Brown might try and end her own life. According to one source, the family feels Bobbi Kristina Brown really needs help and they are considering a possible trip to the rehab as an option to help Bobbi Kristina Brown cope with her issues as well as the loss of her mother, Whitney Houston.
The night when Whitney Houston died, Bobbi Kristina Brown got into an argument with the police after she was barred from seeing the dead body of her mother.
Bobby Brown, the father of Bobbi Kristina, has left his current tour with New Edition in order to be with his only child with Whitney Houston during their 15 years of marriage.
