Report: Houston Family Blocking Bobby Brown from Singer's $20M Fortune
In the latest drama surrounding Whitney Houston's death, the singer's family will reportedly stop Bobby Brown from getting too close to the sole heir of Houston's $20-million fortune -- his 18-year-old daughter, Bobbi Kristina.
According to TMZ, sources close to the family revealed Whitney's mother, Cissy, is suspicious Brown might latch onto Bobbi Kristina, 18, and Cissy will do her best to make sure Brown stays away. The family believes Brown is broke, and they've reportedly blocked his attempt to visit his daughter earlier this week after flying in to Los Angeles.
Whitney's record sales have jumped since her death, and her $20-million estate could double by the end of the year.
Brown and his ex in-laws share a bitter history; they feel Bobby is one of the reasons why Whitney struggled with drugs and alcohol. They also blame the R&B singer for Bobbi Kristina's battle with addiction.
Brown's people tell TMZ that although he is aware of the family's resentment; he wants to make peace with them for his daughter's sake.
Brown, 43, is not invited to Whitney's funeral, to be held Saturday in Newark.
