E! Online is reporting that the family of the late Whitney Houston are in court trying to protect Bobbi Kristina from those seeking to take advantage of her.
Whitney Houston’s mother, Cissy Houston, and her sister-in-law and business manager, Marion Houston, are asking a Georgia judge to modify the existing terms of the late singer’s will.
A petition was filed Sept. 25 with Fulton County Superior Court in Atlanta and obtained by E! News. The two are attempting to protect Whitney’s daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown, from those who would seek to take advantage of her.
As executors of the estate, Cissy and Marion say in court docs that they would like to restructure the inheritance payouts to Bobbi Kristina because they’re concerned that the current distribution schedule would “defeat or substantially impair” the trust’s purpose of providing for her continued support and welfare.
The papers state that when the will was created in 1993, the R&B offspring wasn’t even born. The family members argued that because the trust has valuable assets and Bobbi Kristina is the sole beneficiary, they believe she’s a “highly visible target for those who would exert undue influence over her inheritance and/or to seek to benefit from [her] resources and celebrity.”
We don’t think that this is a bad idea at all, especially considering the crazy headlines Bobbi Kris has been making lately.
