Cissy Houston

Massive Inheritance

Could Kill Bobbi Kristina

Whitney Houston
's mother Cissy is deathly afraid Bobbi Kristina will die just like the singer -- in a haze of drugs and other bad influences -- which is why she wants to withhold Bobbi's multi-million-dollar inheritance, sources tell TMZ.

Sources close to Cissy tell us, Cissy feels Bobbi is currently surrounded by numerous negative influences -- including her boyfriend Nick Gordon and father Bobby Brown -- who will drain Bobbi's fortune given half the chance.

We're told Cissy also feels 19-year-old Bobbi is still extremely impressionable right now -- and if left unchecked with millions of dollars, Bobbi could end up going off the rails ... eventually dying just like Whitney.

According to sources, Cissy wants to wait until Bobbi has matured significantly more before she gets her money ... an estate estimated at $20 million ... though it's unclear how long she wants her to wait.

As for allegations Cissy is trying to withhold Bobbi's fortune to hoard the money for herself -- Cissy is telling friends that's total BS ... that it's about protecting her family.

As we reported, Cissy and Whitney's sister-in-law Pat Houston filed a request this week to modify Whitney's will -- in order to change the distribution schedule of the estate.

So the Dad and boyfriend are bad infuences but Mamma wasn't? Grandma can save Bobbie but she couldn't save Whitney. The money will kill her but the two people who will 'drain it away' aren't saving her life by eliminating all that deadly cursed money?? Oh oh... she just means SHE wants to control the dirty cursed money... Got it. Greedy old slag!

What good is it to have a will if the courts will allow family members to alter the will as it is intended? Bobbi is an adult. Her mother left her the money and it should be distributed as intended. I know that the executors get paid for doing their job and maybe the grandma wants to get paid for as long as possible.

I don't think Cissi did a great job with Whitney, so she should really back the hell off. When Whitney and Bobby were doing drugs with a baby in the house, Cissi never did anything to obtain custody of Bobbi K and left her UNCHECKED (her words) with two druggies, so what is she **** is she ranting now about? Nick is the only person who's been with Bobbi through thick and thin.

Like with her daughter, she holds everybody else responsible for BC's behavior.

I was completely mature at age 19 if not sooner. Apparently nobody in the Houston entourage raised this girl up right. What Cissy really wants is for all of them to live off of Whitney at least until she's dead, then Bobbi can have the rest of what's left. What a family.

This is what I would do...Buy her a house and pay for it upfront...Buy her a car and pay for it upfront...Give her a 7,500 allowance every month...Increase the allowance to 10,000 if she is enrolled in college...Increase the allowance to 25,000 if she graduates from college...Once a year, increase the allowances with the rate of inflation and costs of living...No muss, no fuss....

cissy is trying to cir***vent the natural order of the universe. This is what happens when class-less people obtain money. Bottom line... they dont deserve the money and it will be great stimulus for the economy. Everyone should cheer bobbi-k on!

Given her behavior, this makes total sense. Naturally millions will be spent on attorney fees prior to a judicial determination. The sharks, they be swimming.

Am i wrong or weren't there reports of Whitney Houston having left a lot of debt at the time of her death? So if there is $20mil [or more] in her estate wouldn't the creditors be first in line to receive it?
