Whitney Houston leaves everything in her will to daughter Bobbi Kristina… and nothing to ex-husband Bobby Brown
Whitney Houston’s will has been released, and it has been revealed that the late singer has left everything in her possession to her daughter Bobbi Kristina.
All of her money, as well as her personal effects, has been willed to the 18-year-old.
According to a court document, which was obtained by Inside Edition, the superstar, who died on February 11 aged 48, first set up the will in 1993.

Former flame: Whitney's ex-husband Bobby Brown will receive nothing
However she then amended it in 2000, while she was still; married to former husband Bobby Brown.
But the R&B singer will not receive anything, although he is mentioned in the document itself.
Allegedly, money left by Whitney to Bobbi Kristina will be put into a trust which Bobbi Kristina will be given access to when she turns 21.
At that time, in 2014, she will receive a portion of the inheritance, before being given another chunk at the age of 25.
Bobbi Kristina will receive the rest of her inheritance in a final instalment on her 30th birthday.
According to BANG Showbiz, Whitney’s
mother Patricia “Cissy” Houston is the executor of the will and her
brother and sister-in-law are trustees.
Tragic: Superstar singer Whitney Houston died on February 11 aged 48
Whitney and Bobby Brown were marked for 14 years, but Whitney signed a prenuptial agreement before they tied the knot in 1992, which banned Bobby from accessing her will.
The prenup stated: ‘Houston shall have the right to dispose of her Separate Property by Last Will and Testament in such manner as she may, in her own uncontrolled discretion deem proper.
‘All future earnings, income, and accumulations resulting from each of the party's respective personal activities, skills, efforts and work (including but not limited to each party's respective earnings, income and accumulations derived from recording contracts, movie contracts, other media contracts, concert tours, endorsements, personal appearances….shall remain separate.’
It has emerged that Bobbi Kristina
will inherit everything from her mother's will – but her family are
hoping she doesn't inherit Whitney Houston's fame.
The family of the singer, who passed away last month, reportedly want the 18-year-old out of the 'limelight'.

A source told People magazine: 'There is still no resolution and there has been nothing concrete on the cause of death, and they were hoping for that.'
'There were members of the family who weren't keen on [the interview] going down at this time.
'There are people who just want her to stay out of the limelight for a while. This is a little girl who just needs some time.'
