Fears surrounding the health and well being of the late Whitney Houston's daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown, after her mother's death, have been loudly vocalised by her family, particularly aunt Pat and grandmother Cissy. Undoubtedly, the fears arise in the light of Houston's difficulty with drugs and her premature death, earlier this year.
In response to their concerns, Pat and Cissy chose to go ahead with court proceedings in an attempt to stop Bobbi Kristina from getting her hands on the massive $20m inheritance left to her by her mother. Grandmother, Cissy Houston is 'deathly afraid'- according to TMZ- that Bobbi Kristina will meet the same tragic end as her mother. The case filed by Cissy and Pat is not to remove the inheritance from Whitney's only daughter, but rather to rearrange the schedule by which it is given to her. It has now been made clear that the court has dismissed the case, as Cissy backs out, and Bobbi will receive the money as was stated in the will. That is, she will receive an estimated $2m at the age of 21, $4m when she turns 25, and the final instalment of $14m at 30. No matter when she gets it, it's a helluva lot of money.
Bobbi's engagement to her step-brother Nick Gordon has also raised eyebrows, particularly in her family, few of whom are taking it very seriously. Having lost her mother at the age of 18 everyone expected her to run off the rails a little bit, but so far she's doing really well, and she agrees, as she told Access Hollywood, "I'm doing better than I ever thought I would." Whether that's because her family are keeping close tabs on her, or whether her mother has endowed her with good sense doesn't matter, we simply hope she continues doing well- learning all the right lessons from her late mother.
