Cissy Houston goes to court to keep Whitney’s money from Bobbi Kristina Brown


Bobbi Kristina Brown’s behavior has come back to haunt her, as the family of her mother Whitney Houston are trying to stop her getting her hands on her inheritance.

The trustees of the estate, which includes her grandmother Cissy Houston, have filed legal docs requesting that the payment schedule to Bobbi Kristina Brown be changed.

According to Radar, they fear Bobbi Kristina Brown, 19, is under the “undue influence” of objectionable people.

In court documents filed in Fulton County Superior Court in Atlanta, Cissy Houston is claiming 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”.

The trustees claim in the schedule of distribution conflicts with her “intent to provide long-term financial security and protection for her child”.

“Compliance with the provisions of the trust would defeat or substantially impair the accomplishment of the purposes of the trust, which were to provide for the proper maintenance and comfort of the respondent, and to prevent the wasting of trust assets, as evidenced by the trust’s spend thrift provision,”the document wrote.

Bobbi Kristina Brown is the sole beneficiary of Whitney Houston’s estate, which holds all of the superstar’s remaining earnings and assets.

Whitney Houston was found dead in the bathtub of her hotel room at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in February, with the coroner ruling she died of an accidental drowning.

The development follows her recent public appearance with her “brother boyfriend” Nick Gordon at the Los Angeles premiere of Sparkle.

Both sported sporting new tattoos on their wrists that bore the letters WH surrounded by doves.

They had the work done on what would have been Whitney Houston’s 49th birthday.

Bobbi Kristina Brown is currently filming her reality show The Houston Family Chronicles, which debuts later this year.
