Whitney Houston's Brother

I Don't Give a CRAP

About Being Left Out of Will

Whitney Houston
's brother Gary Houston isn't bothered one bit that Whitney snubbed him in her will -- telling TMZ, "I dont concern myself with any of that [will stuff] ... All I know is my sister's gone."

Gary just arrived in New York from Atlanta -- where a hearing was held yesterday naming his wife Pat the executor of Whitney's estate -- and we asked him about Whitney naming her daughter Bobbi Kristina as the sole beneficiary of her estate.

Gary left the airport with his wife Pat by his side -- who tells us, she's coping with Whitney's death "day by day."

As we previously reported, if Bobbi dies before probate is completed -- Whitney's assets will be split among her ex-husband Bobby Brown and several relatives.

Farrah Fawcett left all her millions to her drug addict son and no one else.

Oh please, BB has at least been clean for a few years now, working. Whitney was a drunk and obviously influenced her daughter to drink as well. I'd worry way less about BB (who Whitney seems to have trusted more than some family members!) and worry more about her family. After all Whitney didn't die on BB's watch now did she?..nope... she was partying and hanging with friends and 'family'. I guarantee that if she had been with BB and died and he said he had run out for just 30mins and in that 30 mins she drowned you'd all have the rope and tree ready, calling him a killer.

Truth    

CLIVE DAVIS NEVER PERSONALLY LENT CASH TO WHITNEY. IT ALL CAME FROM SONY/RCA DIRECTLY FROM HER CONTRACTED ADVANCES. HER LAST LOAN WAS 1.2 MIL. CLIVE IS A COLD HARD BUSINESSMAN. HE NEVER PERSONALLY USED HIS OWN FINANCES TO HELP ANYONE. SO IF WHITNEY OWED ANYONE IT'S SONY MUSIC NOT THAT OCTEGENARIAN DAVIS... #TRUTH!!

Nice to see an African American who doesn't try to leach and get money. Unlike the rest of the Houston family or unlike the Jackson family. This man has some morals and respect for himself. Besides Bobbi Kristina is going to need as much money as possible to support her drug habit like her crack head whore of a mother.

Leave these people alone MY GOODNESS! The headline is incorrect. Gary Garland says that it doesn't matter, what matters is Whitney & Krissy

Her brother seems like a respectful,stand up guy.It's nice not to see family members fighting over a deceased loved one's money.

I just hope Bobbi Kristina is able to pull herself together and not follow down the wrong path.

Truth    

EVERYONE WHO'S SIGNED TO A RECORDING CONTRACT WITH A MAJOR LABEL GETS LOANS/ADVANCES AS PART OF THE DEAL. IT'S THE SAME FROM MADONNA, WHITNEY, MARIAH TO LADY GAGA, BEYONCE, ET AL... EVERYONE!! THE PROBLEM WITH WHITNEY SHE WAS RECEIVING ADVANCES BUT DIDNT PRODUCE AS MUCH PRODUCT AS HER COUNTERPARTS DUE TO HER LACK OF VOICE IN RECENT YEARS. OTHERWISE SHE SHOULD BE PRODUCING AN ALBUM EVERY 2 YRS OR SO... BUT BECAUSE HER DRUG ISSUES AND VOCAL PROBLEMS SHE DIDNT PRODUCE ANY GOODS FROM 2003 UNTIL 2009. YET WHITNEY WAS MAINTAINING HER LIFESTYLE AND EXPENSES DURING THAT PERIOD. FAST TRACK 2012, SHE DIED. SO ALL THOSE ADVANCES FROM SONY MUSIC HAS TO BE RECOUPED SOMEHOW. SINCE WHITNEY DIDNT WRITE HER OWN MUSIC SHE DOESNT HAVE MUCH PUBLISHING RIGHTS TO MAKE SIDE MONEY TO PAY BACK SONY MUSIC -- UNLIKE MICHAEL JACKSON WHO HAS JOHN BRANCA MAXIMIZING ALL HIS BACK CATALOGUE AND UNRELEASED SH*T TO MAKE HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS FOR THE MJ ESTATE. SO WHITNEY HAS TO PAY BACK THOSE ADVANCES SOMEHOW.

It is pretty awful, morbid and down right insensitive for you to add the last paragraph regarding who gets the assets if Bobbi Kristina dies. GROW UP TMZ
