Cissy Houston is terrified granddaughter Bobbi Kristina Brown will suffer the same fate as Whitney Houston – and die young from drugs.
Last week, it was reported that the Houston family were going to court in a bid to keep Bobbi Kristina Brown’s inheritance money protected from bad influences.
And now TMZ claim that sources close to Cissy Houston say the 79-year-old fears Bobbi Kristina Brown’s own boyfriend Nick Gordon and father Bobby Brown are capable of “draining Bobbi’s fortune given half the chance”.
Insiders claim Cissy Houston wants the 19-year-old to “mature” before getting her hands on an estate of $20 million.
Bobbi Kristina Brown hit the headlines after she started dating her foster brother Nick Gordon and decided to star in her own reality show.
And it seems her behavior has come back to haunt her, as the family of try to stop her getting her hands on her inheritance.
The trustees of the estate, which includes Cissy Houston, have filed legal documents requesting that the payment schedule to Bobbi Kristina Brown be changed.
According to Radar, they fear Bobbi Kristina Brown 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.”
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.
