The cute young couple sat down with for a bit of PR while in LA for their first interview as man and wife since announcing their marriage on Twitter a few weeks ago.
The pair claim that it was the criticism surrounding their romance that actually made their love stronger.
Nick said, “It put a fire in us,” to which Bobbi Kristina added, “It lit a fire up under our ass and we went haulin’.”
Nick explained, “The critics can say whatever they want to say… it’s like we have a force field and that s**t’s just bouncing off of it.”
The couple also address chatter about Nick being Bobbi K’s brother/lover and the new hubby even admits he and his wife originally looked at each other as ‘brother and sister’ when Whitney Houston took him in as a child.
In their first interview as man & wife, Gordon explained they were best of friends when Bobbi Kristina’s mom asked him to move in with them when was going through a difficult time at home.
Nick said, “Me calling [Whitney] mom, this where everybody gets the…”
Bobbi injected, “Brother and sister…”
Nick added, “We were young. Krissy looked at me as an older brother, and I looked at her as a little sister.”
Nick continued, “She [Whitney] just treated me like she gave birth to me. She treated me like a son. Excuse me for saying this… she treated me better than my birth mother. I owe everything to her.”
Bobbi Kristina and Nick say their romance blossomed AFTER Whitney Houston’s death in 2012, but they each insist that it was something Whitney would have wanted.
Nick: “She made me promise several times to look after Krissy… and, Mom, I will never ever, ever break that promise.”
Bobbi: “She wanted this. This is something she wanted to see.”
Bobbi Kristina’s wedding band…
The two also dispel rumors they are feuding with Bobbi Kristina’s grandma, Cissy Houston, over their marriage and Bobbi K claims that Cissy actually gave them her blessing.
She told both of us that she loved us very, very, very much, and Nick came up and he said ‘Grandma, I want to marry her. Is it okay? I need your blessing to do this, if I don’t have your blessing I won’t feel right,’ and she looked at him and she smiled. She smiled very wide and said, ‘Yes, son, you have my blessing.
While rumor has it that Bobby Brown wasn’t even contacted about their nuptials, it seems at least they’re on speaking terms. When asked about her relationship with her dad, Bobbi K states:
“We have a relationship. It’s a good one right now. At a point in time, we didn’t even have that… I love my father more than anything.”
Word on the curb is that the newlyweds do NOT have a prenup and as I stated in my post about their wedding:
Whitney left her entire estate to her daughter and Bobbi Kris is scheduled to get at least one-third of the estimated $20 million dollar inheritance on her 21st birthday, which happens to be March 4, 2014.
The couple’s full interview airs tonight (January 30, 2014) on ExtraTV.
