Whitney Houston’s last will and testament revealed the details on how Bobbi Kristina Brown will inherit her mother’s legacy.
Whitney Houston made provisions for her daughter before her death last month.
According to the legal document, Bobbi Kristina Brown, who is the beneficiary of Whitney Houston’s estate which has been placed into a trust, will receive money at the ages of 21, 25 and 30-years-old.
Whitney Houston, who passed away on February 11 aged 48, first set up the will in 1993, it was later amended in April 2000.
While Bobbi Kristina is not named, the singer stipulated that “any child of mine who survives” will receive all furniture, clothing, personal effects, jewellery and cars, as well as the balance of the estate.

If Bobbi Kristina dies, the estate would go to her relatives and her ex-husband Bobby Brown – who would have to decide between themselves how to divvy items up.
If the group couldn’t decide how to split the assets they would be sold and the cash would be distributed.
As well as staggering access to the trust Whitney Houston also stipulated that her trustees can release funds to Bobbi Kristina depending upon the circumstances and it is up to the trustees to allow to release the funds or not.
Presumably these would include if the teenager wanted to start a business, or pay for college.
It will no doubt come as a relief to the family that even though Whitney Houston’s former husband Bobby Brown is named in the will – he will not receive anything.

Whitney Houston’s mother Emily Cissy Houston is the executor of the will and her brother and sister-in-law are trustees.
Her brother Gary Houston, who was named in the will as one of family members who the estate would be divided between if Bobbi Kristina dies, has spoken out about the document.
According to TMZ, Gary Houston said: “I don’t concern myself with any of that [will stuff] … All I know is my sister’s gone.”
Authorities found no evidence of foul play related to Whitney Houston’s death, which is set to be declared an accident.
Whitney Houston died in mysterious circumstances, leading to speculation that other people could have been involved in her death.
But investigations into the singer’s death have not uncovered signs that it was anything other than accidental.
A source told E! News that “nothing suspicious” connected the death to any of Whitney Houston’s associates, staff or doctors.
“She had no marks on her body whatsoever to indicate a struggle, and she was the furthest thing from trying to kill herself,” the source continued.
On Whitney Houston’s death certificate no cause of death was specified, as officials waited for the result of a toxicology test.
That result could come as early as next week, which would bring the investigation close to a conclusion.

Whitney Houston’s family have apparently been convinced all along that her death must have been accidental.
But Whitney Houston’s former sister-in-law Leolah Brown told Access Hollywood: “I believe Whitney’s death was not accidental.”
Leolah Brown, sister of singer Bobby Brown, also advised the couple’s daughter Bobbi Kristina that she should “not trust anybody at this time”.
