Los Angeles - Whitney Houston was reportedly planning to remarry Bobby Brown.

The 48-year-old singer - whose body was discovered in the bath of her Beverly Hills hotel suite on February 11 - had apparently wanted to reunite with her former husband of 14 years.

Author Derrick Handspike - who wrote a book about Bobby - claims the pair got back together just weeks before her death and hoped to remarry with their only child Bobbi Kristina, 19, present.

Dated Eddie Murphy

He told The Sun newspaper: "They were planning a small wedding with just their daughter Krissi."

The singer - who dated actor Eddie Murphy in the 80s - had been in an on-and-off relationship with rapper Ray J for several years following her 2007 divorce from Bobby.

Meanwhile, a rep for their daughter has quashed rumours she's engaged to her "adopted" brother Nick Gordon.

Speculation mounted that Nick had proposed after Bobbi was pictured wearing a sparkler on her left-hand ring finger.

However, her spokesperson told the Daily Mail newspaper: "Bobbi Kristina is not engaged. She is simply wearing her mother's ring."

Nick was taken in by Whitney 10 years ago after his father was jailed, although she never made her parental status official. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
