On the controversy around their engagement, Bobbi Kristina Brown had posted on Facebook, “I’m tired of hearing people say, ‘Eww your [sic] engaged to your brother’ or if Whitney was still alive would we be together or would she approve of this? 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.”
