Whitney Houston has left her entire fortune to her daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown. The money from Whitney’s estate will be put into a trust fund for Bobbi until she reaches the age of 21.
However, Bobbi won’t receive all of the money on her 21st birthday. When she comes of age, she will receive a portion of the funds. She will then receive a further portion when she hits 25 and the remainder of the balance at the age of 30. The value of the estate has not been revealed in the Reuters report but it is worth noting that as a performer and not a writer, Whitney was not entitled to any of the publishing royalties from the songs that she performed. Whitney passed away on February 11, when she was found dead in the bathtub of her Beverly Hills Hilton hotel room. The cause of death is yet to be confirmed.
On Sunday, an interview between Bobbi Kristina Brown and Oprah Winfrey will be aired on Oprah’s TV network, OWN. Bobbi Kristina, whose father is the R&B singer Bobby Brown, has reportedly told friends that she chose to take part in the televised interview because she trusted Oprah, saying that she had always treated her mother with respect. http://www.oprah.com/common/omplayer_embed.html?article_id=36399
