“The Houstons are prepared to go to court over the money,” says the source, noting the tightknit clan has attorneys ready to wage war. “They are going to make sure that it doesn’t wind up in the hands of the Browns.”
“Things are going to get ugly,” says the source of warring relatives, including Bobbi Kristina's maternal grandma, Cissy Houston. “The Houstons are going to go to battle with the Browns for every last penny of Whitney’s fortune.”
But some members of the families may be in for a losing battle. Whitney’s will reportedly had stipulations for exactly what would happen to her money if Bobbi Kristina “doesn’t survive her.”
States Whitney’s will: “If no child of mine survives me: I give all jewelry own at my death to my mother, Emily Cissy Houston, if she survives me; and I give the rest of my tangible personal property to those of my mother, Emily Cissy Houston, my father, John R. Houston, my husband, Robert Brown, my brother Michael Houston, and my brother Gary Houston, as survive me to be amicably divided among them as they might agree, in shares as nearly equal as possible."
