Soooo....things are going down today. Interesting things. Interesting things like Whitney Houston's 20-year-old daughter, Bobbi Kristina, getting engaged to Nick Gordon, whom her mother took in when he was 12 and raised alongside Bobbi.

The aspiring actress took to her Facebook page yesterday to make the announcement, and to take down her haters:

YES, we me nick are engaged. I'm tired of hearing people say "eww your engaged to your brother or if Whitney was still alive would we be together or would she approve of this." Let me clear up something, we aren't even real brother and sister nor is he my adoptive brother. My mom never adopted him. In fact, mommy was the one who even said that she knew that we were going to start dating. My mom knows me better than any of you. A lot of yall are saying that yall are only saying this all out of love. Which is bull because if that was so, all you would want is for me to be happy. People need to seriously stop judging my relationship. Pretty sure it's my own decision who I want to be with. Yes, my relationship may not be perfect. We will have rough patches, just like every other relationship. And we have had our rough patches. You may or may not agree with my relationship. You may or may not respect it. Judge me, go ahead. Your opinions are yours and mine are mine. It is my life and not yours. The decisions I make have nothing to do with you. Goodnight

Bobbi and Nick were engaged at the end of last year as well, but called it off, according to BET, because family members didn't approve.

Houston's only biological child alluded not-at-all subtly to the engagement last week, by posting a photo on Instagram of herself and Nick and referring to him as "My gorgeous fiancé."
