Who knew Whitney Houston had a ‘son?’ 22 years old Nicholas “Nick” Gordon, is the boy whom Whitney took in to live with as her son when he was just 11/12 (depending on the source). Now blogosphere is abuzz with rumours that Nick and Bobbi Kris (Houston’s only biological child) are in a love/sexual relationship. Well, that is if the tweets below are anything to go by;
And he followed it up by tweeting this picture (picture on the right), after rumours of their ‘relationship’ spread on blogosphere.
Are they blood related? No. Can a traumatic experience like death, bring two people together? Yes. Do I find it slightly gross? Yes. Are they happy? seems like it. So…

I’m sure by now, anyone with Internet connection has heard of the passing of “The Voice,” American diva Ms Whitney Houston. I am not going to dwell on the cause of death on this post, if interested, you can read more about it here.
I must have been about 8 yrs old when I heard the song ‘One Moment in time.” and for one moment in time, my world stopped spinning as that distinct soulful yet raspy, powerful yet sensual voice took my mind to another world. I had never ever heard a voice that beautiful, so beautiful that even my young mind bowed to its beauty. Although I could not truly understand the meaning of some of the lyrics in her songs, the powerful emotions that only Ms Whitney Houston could convey, delivered the message straight to my heart. I became a fan.
Whitney Houston’s voice was truly a gift from God. I don’t know about you, but there are some people whom I’ve never met, yet in my mind I have shared a lifetime with them. Whitney Houston was one of those people. Her music has always been the ‘background noise’ in my life. After she passed on, a lot of people claimed that it felt like loosing an aunt. This led me to ponder on what kind of talent a fellow human has to possess, in order for millions to feel that special bond with them?
Do these talented people know how much their Gift affects lives? Is that why they feel so pressured? Or are they too selfish to even consider that their gift was meant to be shared with the world? The Bible says “to whom much is given, much is expected.” do our expectations drive them up the wall? We often hear them say ‘ We are only human and bleed just like you.”
Okay, I accept, they are only human and therefore we should treat them as such. I know they bleed, but are they mere mortals, No. Why? Well that’s because they were blessed with a ‘special’ gift, which you and I do not have. Therefore the proverbial ‘much’, has been given to them and I believe I’m justified in expecting more from them. The best I can do is pray for them when they face their trials and tribulations. And hope that they realise that ‘their’ gift, is ours to share.
I gotta admit, Whitney shared hers generously. Unfortunately, sometimes her personal demons got the best of her. Still when I look at the many years and effort she dedicated to her fans, I can’t help but say “to whom which much was expected, much was given” albeit insufficient to us.
RIP Whitney! You’re still giving me.

Photos of 17 years old Bobbi Kristina in two different setting allegedly snorting ‘Cocaine’ were published in the march issues The National Enquirer yesterday.
The only child of Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown has been featured in the media in the past for alleged drug abuse. Photos of then 14 years old Bobbi Kristina smoking surfaced on the net showing with allegations of alcohol abuse.
I hope this is not true but if it is then I pray she gets help as soon as possible. This is sad!

There have been rumours abounding that Whitney Houston and Ray J are a couple, although both parties have never acknowledged it. Still who knows with Hollywood right? Now there are fresh rumours that these two have re-united. I’ll let you decide.
The NY Daily News claims that soul Diva extraordinaire, Whitney Houston and R’nB star, Ray-J were spotted sharing dinner and a room at the Ritz Carlton (you don’t say) in Atlanta and Houston:
Reunited couple alert! Whitney Houston, 47, and singer/reality star Ray J, 29, are back together again. The two dined together at Capital Grille in Atlanta on Thursday. A source close to the lovebirds told us that though this was their first date in a long time, Ray J postponed his promotional tour for a few days and spent the night with Houston at the Ritz Carlton. (Houston’s rep did not respond by deadline.)
