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.

someone of right of mind in the Whitney family needs to do what Jamie spears did with Britney spears. They need to be Bobbi Christiana's conservator till she's of right of mind.

I agree. She is young and probably still mourning the loss of her mom. I would like to see her just get so much per year until she is 21. I doubt her father would try to take advantage though .. he seems to be making his own money. Whitney probably didn't think of this type of situation because she didn't expect to die so young.

I see all as being true.
Bobbi Kris WILL go out of control and end up broke.
Bobby Brown and her "brother"/boyfriend WILL live off Bobbi Kris.
Cissy IS hoping to get control of the money for herself.

It's a wreck of a situation.

Does anyone really care? Let her blow it, if she wants! Just like Michael jacksons estate, worth more after he died, and the family wants as much as they can get.....pure trash

"Whitney Houston's mother Cissy is deathly afraid Bobbi Kristina will die like just the singer"

I guess proof reading before releasing an article is a dated practice.

Everyone please stop calling this young woman a child. She is an adult who has been let down by all the adults responsible for her life up until now. Seemingly without any judgment of her own, it makes sense to defer he inheritance until she is older and has some chance of developing a little. It should also be mandatory that none of these people have anything to say about her inheritance, including her grandmother. Where has she been fo the past 19 years? Unlike the Brittny Spears situation, there does not seem to be anyone in Bobbi Christina;s life with her best interests at heart. Let some impartial conservator take charge of the funds.

To emphasize Dominee's point, previous comment should have been proofread. Corrected as follows:

Thank God Cissy Houston wants to protect her granddaughter from all of Whitney's money. Cissy is starting to sound and look a lot like Joe Jackson.

When did TMZ become BET? They no longer tell stories of Hollywood, but now only give us updates on ***s and non important black people who are fighting in bars or over money. Can we say jump the shark?

Yes, let's just run roughshod over everyone's wills, because no one seriously thinks their wills actually reflect their own wishes, right?

What's hers is hers. If she blows it, "oh well." She'll learn her lesson the hard way. Whitney will be making money postumously for years to come. Get Bobbi help instead of trying to control her money.

If she's considered an Adult, she should get 100% of the inheritance unless the specifics of what is none of my business from her deceased Mother dictate other terms.

Enjoy.
