According to press reports, pop legend Whitney Houston left all of her assets including furnishings, personal effects, clothing, cars and jewelry to her 19-year-old daughter, Bobbi Kristina.
Her last will, which was filed in Atlanta on Wednesday did not mention specific assets but instructed that all of her estate be given to her daughter who happens to be her only child.
The late icon’s money is to be put in a trust and her sister-in-law and manager, Patricia Houston was appointed administrator of the estate. Bobbi Kristina will receive a part of the money upon turning 21, more of it at the age of 25 and the rest of it when she turns 30. However, the trustees can give her money for such purposes as paying tuition, buying a house and starting a business.
Houston’s husband of 17 years, New Edition front man, Bobby Brown was mentioned in the will but was not left anything.
Inside Edition reports that the will was drafted in 1993, the year Bobbi was born and amended in 2000 but Forbes claims that the will was updated in 2004 when Patricia Houston was named executor of the estate in place of the diva’s mother, gospel singer, Cissy Houston.
Whitney Houston was found dead 11, February in the bath room of a hotel room and the cause of her death has not yet been determined.
