Whitney Houston’s family members claim to be concerned about Houston and Bobby Brown’s only child together, Bobbi Kristina. Houston’s mother, Cissy, and sister-in-law, Marion, have gone to court to make sure that Bobbi, the only heir to Whitney Houston’s estate, does not get her hands on all the money that her mother has left her.
The two relatives claim that they are concerned that, at the tender age of 19, Bobbi is not prepared to handle the large endowment. The will that Whitney Houston left behind has not been altered since 1993, shortly after Bobbi Kristina was born. In the will, Houston stipulates that Bobbi will get a sixth of her inheritance at age 20, 10 percent at age 21 and everything else when she turns 30, including all present and future assets earned in Houston’s name.
The family has filed to create a “testamentary trust” in court. If they get their way, they would then share the control of the estate and have more control over how much and how frequently Bobbi can get money from her inheritance. Court documents reveal that Houston’s mother, Cissy, thinks her granddaughter is “a highly visible target for those who would exert undue influence over her inheritance and/or seek to benefit from respondent’s resources and celebrity.”
Though Whitney deliberately left her will unchanged, the two trustees claim that her giving Bobbi access to her inheritance as stipulated by her mother “would likely directly conflict with and cause the opposite of [Whitney’s] intent to provide long-term financial security and protection for her child.”
It is difficult to disagree with the teenager’s family considering that her and her alleged boyfriend, Nick Gordon, were just recently reported to have been in a major car accident that left Gordon’s black Camero in very bad shape.
Meanwhile, Bobbi is currently filming for the upcoming reality TV show, The Houston Family Chronicles. Cissy will also be on the show and it will premier on October 24.
