Bobbi Kristina Brown was born in 1993 during Whitney Houston’s marriage to Bobby Brown, which ended in divorce in 2007.
Whitney Houston’s daughter became a public figure during the mid-2000s reality show Being Bobby Brown, in which she frequently appeared alongside her parents and often had a front-row seat to their marital fireworks.
Bobbi Kristina Brown and her mother performed together on national TV in 2009, when the two sang My Love Is Your Love in Central Park on ABC’s Good Morning America.
Given their close relationship, it’s no surprise that Whitney Houston’s death was a major blow for Bobbi Kristina.
After Whitney Houston’s death, Bobbi Kristina Brown talked of pursuing a career in acting and music, just like her mother.
In 2012, she reportedly lobbied for a role in a planned biopic of her mother’s life. Lifetime’s Whitney, directed by actress Angela Bassett, debuted in January 2015, but the Houston family was not involved.
Bobbi Kristina Brown did make her acting debut in 2012 on Tyler Perry’s show For Better or Worse. Her performance in the small role won praise from Tyler Perry.
Even before her mother’s death, videos of Bobbi Kristina Brown singing surfaced on YouTube and were quickly criticized by fans who felt her talent did not live up to Whitney Houston’s.
Bobbi Kristina Brown appeared on episodes of Lifetime’s brief reality show The Houstons: On Our Own, which followed her life after Whitney Houston’s death.
One of the show’s story lines revolved around Bobbi Kristina Brown’s relationship with Nick Gordon, who had lived with Whitney Houston and her daughter since he was 12 years old.
Bobbi Kristina Brown reportedly got engaged to Nick Gordon, and in January 2014, she tweeted out a picture of wedding rings along with the words: “#HappilyMarried• SO#Inlove.”
However, Bobby Brown attorney Christopher Brown said Bobbi Kristina Brown was never married to Nick Gordon.
