Bobbi Kristina `not marrying Nick Gordon and ring on finger is Whitney’s`

London: Bobbi Kristina’s spokesperson has denied claims that she is going to marry her adoptive brother, Nick Gordon.

There were rumours of her engagement after she stepped out with Gordon wearing a large, square cut diamond ring, but her representatives have said that the piece of jewellery is actually that of her late mother Whitney Houston.

“Bobbi Kristina is not engaged. She is simply wearing her mother’s ring,” the Daily Mail quoted her rep as saying.

Over the weekend the pair were spotted stepping out together hand-in-hand in Atlanta and last Thursday Bobbi Kristina was seen first sporting the ring as she kissed her beau on a date at a pizza parlour.

As part of Houston’s will her daughter inherited all of her jewellery collection.

The denial comes after reports emerged that Bobbi’s grandmother Cissy Houston has slammed the pair’s relationship, branding it “incestuous”.

On Friday Bobbi Kristina was spotted leaving an AT and T store with Gordon, who the ‘I Will Always Love You’ singer raised as her own for 10 years.

The young couple looked happily in love and held hands as they entered and left the store, in their hometown.
