Kim Burrell Chimes In On Bobbi Kristina & Nick Gordon’s Relationship (We Think)
Bobbi Kristina’s relationship with Nick Gordon has everyone worried! Kim Burrell, who mentored and served as Whitney Houston’s spiritual advisor, opened up about Bobbi and Nick Gordoon’s marriage…and she feels the same way as we do! Thought Kim didn’t mention Nick’s name, she is very fluid that she thinks Bobbi needs to get a grip on her life.
“I remind [Bobbi Kristina] too much of her mama in a lot of ways. If I were to be in her ear, the first words I would probably say are, ‘Just stop it. And you know exactly what I mean. You know what time it is. Don’t go there’,” she told Essence Magazine.
“The girl is smart. To me, she’s a victim of circumstance,” she continued. “”I’m not making any excuses, but she was born into craziness. At nine years old, your parents give you $5,000 to go shopping, and the money increases as you get older and you’re pretty much on your own. And you’re doing what you want to do and you’re around all this stuff that she’s involved in as a teenager.”
Bobbi Kristina and Nick have been at odds with the Houston family and things even escalated to a physical altercation between Nick and Bobbi’s uncle Gary.
“So, I would just tell her, ‘Baby, just stop.’ And consider your life to be your own and not a reflection of anyone else’s,” she said. “Do your best to try to live from this moment forward as an adult because right now you’re living out something that’s killing you quickly. I don’t want to talk too much about [her marriage] ‘cause it is a sore spot. She’s young. And I just hope that at some point she’ll let people in. She’s very rebellious, but she loves me. She just doesn’t want to hear what I have to say. And I get that.”
