Bobby Brown set to inherit Whitney Houston’s estate

In the wake of the tragic accident that has resulted in the hospitalization of Bobbi Kristina Brown, the dysfunctional relationship between the Houston family and R&B artist Bobby Brown has been on full display.

From multiple media outlets it has been reported that Bobbi Kristina may be brain dead and the family has been told to prepare for the worst, a painful possibility for her loved ones. Amid the tragedy there was an alleged incident at Bobbi Kristina’s bedside between her father and Nick Gordon. Before an actual physical fight occurred, media mogul Tyler Perry reportedly separated the two men.

It has now been revealed that Gordon and Bobbi Kristina were not legally married. If Bobbi Kristina dies, she has no will and under Georgia law that means that Bobby Brown would inherit the estimated $20 million dollar estate that was left to his daughter by Whitney Houston. It is currently unknown if Houston’s will indicated if another person was named to inherit this vast wealth.

Brown was divorced from Houston in 2006 and has had a negative relationship with the Houston family over the years. This even played out during Houston’s funeral when Brown was allegedly asked to leave the funeral service. If the worst happens and Bobbi Kristina dies, then a huge legal battle will likely ensue.

    He ain’t gettin that dough. Whitney’s will stipulates that her mother and brothers will inherit if Bobbi Kris dies before the trust matures.

    Whitney wanted her mom and brothers to have her estate but just read that Bobby is mentioned to get something in her will, which was written in 1993. If Whitney did not change her will after she and bobby divorced then that is what will happen. The 1993 will as it stands. BK likely may not live for it to be distributed to her so Whitney stated in writing who gets the bulk and that’s her mom and brothers divided. THAT IS WHAT WHITNEY WANTS AND doubt Bobby Kris had a will, to trump her moms. No way will Bobby get all of that estate. Whitney’s will still stands since BK is only 21 and probably wont be here anymore. I hope she improves but I think her brain went without oxygen too long. 7 days and still no response. Not good. If Bobby decides to remove life support he should remove life support on the 11th of Feb. when her mom passed, or tomorrow night the 7th, the night before the Grammys. The 11th would be giving her more time though. I pray she comes through so all of this will go away.

    Since Whitney’s will was between her and her lawyer. I would like to know how the public knows what is in the will and what she wanted. Either way weather Bobby Brown or the mother get the money, if Bobbi Kristina dies. It was reported that Bobby Brown is not at this time taking his daughter off of life support. Which means he is not thinking of the money or he would of pulled the plug already.
