Cissy Houston on Bobbi Kristina

'What They're Doing

Is Incestuous'

3/15/2012 5:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Cissy Houston, mother of Whitney Houston
Cissy Houston
-- Whitney Houston's mom -- has reacted fiercely to the video we posted Wednesday ... showing Bobbi Kristina and Whitney's "adopted" son Nick Gordon in a romantic grip, and then kissing (below).

Cissy told a close friend, "What they're doing is incestuous." Cissy feels her granddaughter has problems and Nick is taking advantage of her. 

Although Whitney never formally adopted Nick, she considered him her son and Bobbi called him her brother. For his part, Nick called Bobbi his sister.

Cissy is so concerned that Bobbi has become impressionable and therefore an easy target for Nick, she's asking the Whitney Houston Estate to take legal steps to get him evicted from Whitney's home -- where Bobbi Kristina is also living.

I'm guessing that Whitney and her entire family were against this coupling...thinking of him as family- more like BK's brother and not a potential lover.
had to have been a source of constant mother/daughter fighting since you never saw BK in public looking romantic with him while mom was alive
then Whitney is barely in the ground and they take it public in a big way- must have known for the next little bit the paparazzi would be all around them
lends fuel to the conspiracy theorists who are now guessing that a mother/daughter blowup- maybe in the hotel suite bathroom- lad to the singers death somehow- and that the people present were staged things to protect BK
better if BK would have lay low for a few months after the cause of death was official to stop any speculation

A better move would be to make it so bobbi-k doesn't have access to all of her inheritance so he can't get to it. And just let them be in a relationship. Evicting him isn't going to change the status of their relationship and only strain the relationship with her grandma. If being with him makes the loss more bearable then why not? As long as he keeps his hands out of her money and treats her well.

I agree with Jay! This is not even close to incest! Whitney just allowed Bobbi's boyfriend to move in with them when they were young! Its not uncommon! He's Whitney's Son-in-law? Nothing wrong with that.

They are not blood related and she feels he can be trusted. Only she knows him we do not, who are we to judge? It is not a case like Woody Allen and his adopted daughter (taking advantage of a minor). These two are both young adults!

Get it right now TMZ...your stories have been a little off base lately. You posted two weeks ago he was evicted and that wasn't true either!

I understand why Cissy would want him out. He's 22 yrs old, does he have a job? Instead of freeloading off of Whitney, he can freeload off her daughter now. He probably learned that from Bobby Sr.

PRO US    

Did Cissy inherit one of Whitney's wigs? It was funny during the funeral when one of them praised Whitney's hair during her career. What a dope! Whitney only wore wigs while performing on-stage during her career. No one saw her real hair in public after her first appearance on The Merv Griffin Show on TV at the start of her career. How can you praise someone for their wigs? Can we praise Ron Paul for his fake eyebrows (falling off during the last debate) too? LOL

He's a leech with no job and no place to live. His meal ticket passed away so he grabs the next one in line for pay check, the daughter. These two are nothing but white trash the Bobbi is too stoned and dumb to know he is using her and also getting the cow free. She is so stupid.Grandma is right on this one. They need to hire a back ground check on this leech, where's his family etc ? AS long as she lets him pork her he has a roof over his head , really creepy.

Something just no right with this girl. They reported that Whitney was face down in the tub who take a bath like that. They also reported that this girl say once she would kill Whitney and then herself , where was Bobbi K when Whitney died.

Another perspective    

I doubt they officially adopted this kid. Everybody in the black community knows, adoption for us is like (what my mom and many moms do) ... they take a kid in their home & provide 4 them. Its not usually official where the person is ACTUALLY your relative, but they're LIKE family. RE: Cissy, God Bless her heart. I'm sure shes a great woman & familyperson, but you can tell she's CONTROLLING & (from a young daughter raised in a CHRISTIAN homes perspective) TRUST MEeeee, it doesn't work. U have to give your children tools to live UPRIGHTLY in the world. U can not SHELTER them nor try to CONTROL their lives. They will only REBEL. It didnt work with Whitney and it wont work with Krissy. She has to learn to balance that out. Ppl will only hide and sneak around when u get like that. (Maybe thats y even Whitney and now Chrisst) relate better with Patricia (the in-law) because she knows how to correct them without condemning

Grandma is going overboard trying to control the grand kid because she feels she failed her daughter. It's sad...
