Cissy Houston, the mother of the late Whitney Houston, has ended the battle when her granddaughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown, can inherit her mother’s money, TMZ is reporting. Cissy and Pat Houston, Whitney’s sister-in-law, are the co-executors of the singer and actress’ estate. They had previously filed legal papers to drastically change the way Whitney’s fortune would be paid to her 18-year-old daughter.
Cissy and Pat felt Brown would receive too much, too soon. Brown was originally set to receive her mother’s estimated $20 million in three separate payments. She was scheduled to receive $2 million when she turns 21; $4 million when she turns 25, and $16 million when she turns 30.
The case was dismissed after Brown came to an agreement with Cissy. Whitney’s original plan is virtually unchanged, and Brown and Cissy are satisfied with the plan. The two are happy to put the case behind them.
