Bobbi Kristina sparked controversy she and 'her adoptive brother' Nick Gordon are set to wed after stepping out with a diamond ring on her wedding finger.

The rep said: 'Bobbi Kristina is not engaged. She is simply wearing her mother's ring.'

The denial comes four days after Bobbi's representatives were first contacted by MailOnline after reports surfaced that she and Nick were planning on getting married - her publicist did not comment on the claims.
Over the weekend the pair were spotted stepping out together hand-in-hand in Atlanta and last Thursday Bobbi Kristina was seen first sporting the ring as she kissed her beau on a date at a pizza parlour.
As part of Whitney Houston's will Bobbi Kristina inherited all of her jewellery collection.
The denial from the teenager's reps come after reports that her grandmother Cissy Houston has slammed the pair's relationship branding it 'incestuous' emerged.
On Friday Bobbi Kristina, who is mourning the death of her mother, was spotted leaving an AT&T store with Gordon, who Houston raised as her own for 10 years.
The two looked happily in love and held hands as they entered and left the store, in their hometown.
Bobbi gave a nod to her late mother by wearing a Whitney Houston: Nothing But Love tour sweater, with a striped minidress and boots.

She smoked a cigarette and clutched her iPhone.
It has been claimed that Kristina is going against her grandmother's wishes by marrying Gordon.
Bobbi is said to be totally disregarding Cissy Houston's wishes who has slammed their relationship as 'incestuous'.
A source said: 'Krissy has told her grandmother that she doesn't need her blessing to marry Nick, and the more Cissy objects to the relationship, well that only cements Krissy's decision,' Star magazine reports.
'It's just a very sad situation. Clearly, Krissy loves Nick, but she has just lost her mother, and her entire world has been turned upside down. Krissy doesn't think she needs to wait, and points to her mom's sudden death as the reason to marry Nick,' the source adds.
TMZ also reports that she is telling friends she doesn't care what her family thinks.

A source told the site that Bobbi: 'Can't please everyone, so she is going to please herself by doing what she wants to do for once.'
Bobbi and Nick were also seen sharing a kiss as they enjoyed a pizza parlour date in Atlanta on Tuesday last week.
The teenager was again seen flashing the ring on her engagement finger.
While Nick was never formally adopted by Whitney, he moved into her home when he was 12-years-old and has lived there ever since.
With Bobbi's mother passing away last month the couple have been sharing her $1.2million Atlanta home together.

According to Star magazine Nick's grandmother Maxine Gordon said: 'Nick took care of Whitney and Kristina. He's always been extremely protective of Kristina.'
In a series of tweets over the past few months Nick referred to Bobbi as sister and in turn she called him brother.
While the pair are not actually being blood relatives, Bobbi and Nick grew up together after Whitney took him in at the age of 12 when his father went to prison and his mother was unable to take care of him.
However, Cissy said that Bobbi and Nick's romance still constitutes wrongdoing, telling TMZ.com: 'What they're doing is incestuous.'
Cissy is also quoted as telling the website that she believes Nick is taking advantage of Bobbi and her issues.
It is claimed that Cissy has even requested that the Whitney Houston Estate get involved in an attempt to get him evicted from Whitney's Atlanta townhouse.
A family friend told this week's Star magazine how Nick proposed to Bobbi over last weekend, the magazine reports.
'Nick proposed to Krissy on March 10, and she said yes,' the family relative confirmed.
'Krissy said Nick is the only person she trusts in the world. They have a very deep connection.'
TMZ claims friends of the couple believe they are heading to Las Vegas soon - although whether they plan to get married there is not clear.
The website also reports that Bobbi Kristina's friends are said to be shocked over her new relationship.
According to TMZ, her pals were taken aback when after Bobbi Kristina informed them of her new boyfriend at a BBQ, the pair kissed.
A source said that one friend believed the relationship was a result of the pair's grief over the death of Whitney.
Star says the couple are keeping the news quiet for now - but quotes other sources expressing concern and suspicion at the time of the proposal.
'Everyone is worried that Nick is looking to take advantage of Krissy,' a friend told the publication, referring to the $10m Bobbi is set to inherit from her late mother.
Nick added fuel to speculation about their relationship status when he tweeted last week: 'Yea we got a little closer and what!!!'
And Nick has told fans only to follow Bobbi Kristina's real account.
