After the death of Bobbi Kristina (BK), many people wondered where would her inheritance from Whitney Houston end up? BK, who was single and childless, died on Sunday after being comatose since January 31. BK inherited her mother’s estate, which some estimate was worth over $20,000,000, but now that she’s gone, where will it go?
According to The Wrap, two attorneys who’ve read over Houston’s will says now the money will be divided between Houston’s family members, including her mother and brothers.
Bobbi Kristina, therefore, had only received the first payment in the distribution plan. Houston’s will stipulates that “if Bobbi Kristina were to die unmarried, without children of her own and had left no will and testament of her own, the estate would be divided among Whitney’s living relatives,” Gaynes explained.
Those relatives are listed as Whitney’s mother Emily “Cissy” Houston, and her brothers Michael and Gary, according to Gaynes. Whitney’s father John is listed as well, but he died in 2003.
“Robert Brown is also listed,” Gaynes said of Bobbi Kristina’s father Bobby Brown, “but their divorce … would nullify his claim to the estate.”
The Houston estate, which is reported to be at least $20 million, is difficult to define. While rumors of financial trouble plagued Whitney in her final days, music royalties have poured in since her death.
On Monday, Bobby Brown broke his silence about the death of his daughter.
“Krissy was and is an angel. I am completely numb at this time,” the singer, 46, said in a statement released by his lawyer Monday. “My family must find a way to live with her in spirit and honor her memory. Our loss is unimaginable.”
He adds, “We thank everyone for the prayers for Krissy and our family as we mourn my baby girl.”
