The Houston family is reportedly preparing to battle Bobby Brown over his late daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown’s $20 million inheritance. But Bobbi Kris’ mother and Bobby’s ex-wife Whitney Houston offered explicit details in her will on the way her estate should be divided if Bobbi Kris were to pass away.

According to the document, which was written up in 1993 while Bobby and Whitney were still married, Bobbi Kris’ grandmother Cissy Houston and a few other family members are entitled to the hefty sum upon the death of her daughter.

Along with Cissy, Whitney said that the money would be divided among her father John Houston, her brothers Michael Houston and Gary Houston and her husband at the time, Bobby.

However, seeing that Whitney and Bobby divorced before her death in 2012, he no longer has any claim to his portion mentioned in the document.

Cissy Houston was initially the executor of the estate, which includes royalties from Whitney’s music and likeness. However, Gary's wife, Pat Houston, came on as a co-executor after Whitney’s passing.

Bobbi Kristina’s inheritance was the focus of several reported issues among the Houston and Brown families following Whitney’s death. Cissy and Pat even attempted to change some of the terms of Bobbi Kris’ distribution timeline for the money after she and her boyfriend, Nick Gordon, first went public with their relationship. But despite their claims that Bobbi Kris receiving the large sum would make her a “highly visible target for those who would exert undue influence over her inheritance and/or seek to benefit from her resources and celebrity,” the terms of the timetable remained the same.
