Before her untimely passing on February 11, Whitney Houston made plans to take care of her daughter Bobbi Kristina in case she wasn’t around.Whitney amended her will on April 14, 2000, leaving Bobbi Kristina, now 19, everything she owned. Bobbi Kris will inherit her mother’s money, furniture, clothing, personal effects, jewelry and cars. Inside Edition obtained the 19-page will that laid out Whitney’s plans.
The money will be placed in a trust until Bobbi Kristina turns 21 in 2014. She will receive additional money when she turns 25, and will be given access to the rest of Whitney’s fortune when she turns 30.
Whitney’s mother Cissy is the executor of the will, while Whitney’s brother Michael and sister-in-law Donna are the trustees. While the singer’s ex-husband, Bobby Brown, is mentioned in the will, he won’t be getting anything. The will stated if Bobbi Kristina had died before Whitney, Bobby, Cissy, and other relatives would share the assets.
Whitney had first drafted a will on February 3, 1993 — exactly one month before she gave birth to Bobbi Kristina.
While family wants to keep her out of the spotlight, Bobbi Kristina will open up for the first time about her mother’s death on an episode of Oprah’s Next Chapter, airing on Oprah Winfrey’s channel OWN this Friday, March 9 at 9 p.m. EST. “[Bobbi Kristina] idolized Whitney,” a source previously told Us Weekly. “She was always by her side in everything she did.”
I’m really excited to watch Oprah’s interview with Bobbi Kristina. While talking about her mother will be an emotional topic, many want to see her and hear her speak about her memories with Whitney. I’m actually surprised that she is doing an interview, especially so soon after Whitney’s passing, but at least with Oprah, it will be done with taste and integrity.
