How Bobby Brown Figures in Whitney Houston's Will

Singer Whitney Houston's 19-year-old daughter, Bobbi Kristina, is set to inherit the late pop star's estate, valued at around $20 million. But in an amendment if the 19-year-old dies before she turns 30, ex-hubby Bobby Brown could have access to the money.


The will was filed Wednesday in Atlanta, and according to reports, it states that all furnishings, clothing, personal effects, jewelry and cars be left to Whitney's surviving children, meaning Bobbi Kristina.

Upon turning 21, the teenager will receive part of the money, additional funds at age 25 and the balance at age 30. Houston's trustees can give her money from the trust for various purposes, including tuition, to buy a home and to start a business.

The will was signed in 1993, a month before Bobbi Kristina was born, but was amended in 2000, reports TMZ. The amendment provides that if the 19-year-old dies before probate is completed or before she turns 30, ex-hubby Bobby Brown and various relatives would split up all of Whitney's assets as they see fit.

Bobbi Kristina speaks publicly on Sunday for the first since Houston's death, in a one-on-one interview with Oprah Winfrey, but some family members are worried it's too soon for the young woman to be in the spotlight.

"There are people who just want her to stay out of the limelight for a while," a Houston family friend told People.com. "This is a little girl who just needs some time."
