Simply put, Bobby Brown does not approve.
On the heels of daughter Bobbi Kristina confirming her engagement to Nick Gordon, the singer was asked by TMZ whether he's excited for these impending nuptials.
His curt response? "I'M NOT."
Brown added that Gordon - who was taken in by Whitney Houston when he was 12 years old, though never legally adopted by the singer - never asked for his blessing.
Bobbi and Bobby have had problems for a very long time, of course.
The teenager has said she's unsure if her dad can ever rise above his alcoholism.
Despite these differences and the fact that they barely talk, Brown did want to make it clear in hit brief chat with a TMZ cameraman:
"I just want her to be happy."
