Bobbi Kristina's Grandma


In War Over $20 Mil Inheritance

10/28/2012 3:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Bobbi Kristina
's grandmother Cissy Houston has BACKED OFF her attempt to keep Whitney Houston's money from Bobbi Kristina for years -- we found out Cissy has settled her beef with BK.

TMZ broke the story ... Cissy and Pat Houston (co-executors of Whitney's estate) ... had filed legal papers hoping to drastically change the way Whitney's fortune would be paid out to 19-year-old Bobbi .. because they felt it was "too much, too soon."

As it stood, BK was to receive her money -- an estimated $20 million -- in 3 separate chunks ... 10% when she turns 21 ($2 mil), just under 20% at age 25 ($4 mil) and the remainder when she turns 30 ($16 mil).

Now, we've learned ... the case has been dismissed after Bobbi and Cissy reached an agreement ... and sources tell us Whitney's original plan for the payout was virtually unchanged.

Still, we're told both Bobbi and Cissy are satisfied with the plan ... and are happy to put the case behind them.

By law, Cissy and Pat had no legal authority to change Whitney's pay out schedule written in her Will. I doubt very much that Cissy folded. Most likely her request was thrown out of court, denied by the judge or her attorney told her she didn't stand a chance and not to pursue it in court.

So that was the original pay-out schedule? The older article made it sound like she was getting it all at once.

This original payout plan seems fine to me - even a little strict (30 years old for the bulk of it). I think it is strange to not leave anything to close family, especially when you have over 20 mil.

Doesn't matter when she gets it, the family babies her as much as her mother did so she'll be just as immature at 40 as she is now, and believe, she is immature. She'll blow it on drink and drugs, then spend her life blaming others. Like mother, like daughter.

" 10% when she turns 21 ($2 mil), just under 20% at age 25 ($4 mil) and the remainder when she turns 30 ($16 mil). "
It's known that she likes her drugs and likes them a lot. She has a boyfriend who seems also like his drugs. Bad combination. Add in the fact that she doesn't seem to have an once of self control and it looks like she should be making HER Will out.
I doubt if she will even survive to collect any more than the initial $2 million.

Too bad she doesn't look like her beautiful mother. Whitney was beautiful and talented. If Whitney were still alive Bobbi Kristina wouldn't have all this attention. She so wants to follow in her mother's footsteps... ummmmm her career hopefully and not the drug part.

I still miss Whitney. On February 11,2012 that beautiful voice was silenced forever.
