Whitney Houston’s Daughter Still in Coma, What’s Next?

Exactly three years after her mother Whitney Houston’s death on February 12, her daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown was found nearly dead in a bathrub but rushed to hospital where she is in medically-induced coma and attempts to revive her led to seizures forcing the doctors to push her back into coma. She has had surgery to replace her breathing tube with a tracheostomy last week.

Now that it is nearing one month, fans and relatives are wondering whether the daughter, who inherits her mother’s entire wealth, will ever come back to life or not. Her father Bobby Brown, a singer, said he has cancelled his upcoming Australian tour to remain with his daughter.
But the father has been hit hard for his irresponsible behaviour from the start that critics said caused the death of Whitney Houston and now her daugher’s near-death medical condition.

Whitney Houston died when she was 48 years from accidental drowning in a bathtub at a hotel in Beverly Hills, California.

Houston’s bodyguard David Roberts, who was instrumental in making a film of her titled “The Bodyguard” told the media that Bobby Brown’s drug binge led the child too to get into the addiction that has seen her in and out of rehabs after her mother’s death.

Called “Krissy” Brown, she was born on March 4, 1993, in Livingston, New Jersey, to Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown amid many cousins and relatives. Her maternal grandmother Cissy Houston of ‘The Drinkard Singers’ fame is still seen with her occasionally. Her mother’s cousins are Dee Dee Warwick; Dionne Warwick, mother of Damon Elliott and Leontyne Price. Her uncle is Gary Garland, who’s her mother’s half-brother.

From her father side, she has four half-siblings — Landon, La’Princia, Robert “Bobby” Jr., and Cassius and her godmother is CeCe Winans.

Bobbi Brown’s childhood was hit hard by her parents’ drug addiction and the presence of paparazzi, besides domestic violence issues cropping up now and then.

She was first taken to spotlight by her mother in 1994 to receive an American Music Award. When her parents divorced, Whitney Houston was awarded her custody, while her father still had visitation rights.

Now, her last days in similar sitation like her mother is raising many eye-brows in Hollywood at the coincidence.

As per her mother’s will, Bobbi was the beneficiary of Houston’s entire estate including clothing, jewelry, cars, personal effects, and furniture and she was entitled to receive trust fund payments in installments until she reaches age 30. After 30, she will inherit the remainder of Houston’s US$115 million estate.

She is reportedly married to Nick Gordon, a close family friend who had come to live in the Houston household when he was 12 years old. In early 2014, Brown and Gordon announced their marriage but her father Bobby Brown’s lawyer said in a statement in January 2015 that Brown “is not and has never been married to Nick Gordon”.

So, the question is about the inheritance of Whitney Houston’s riches. Will her ex-husband Bobby Brown, who insisted to be on the bedside of his daughter in coma, inherit the wealth or will it be Nick Gordon, her announced husband?
