Bobbi Kristina Brown, the daughter and only heiress of late singing icon Whitney Houston, died at the age of 22 on July 26, according to a report by the International Business Times.
Bobbi Kristina was in a coma and treated for about six months after being found unconscious in a bathtub at her home in Roswell, Georgia. During this time, her large inheritance from her mother became the center of speculation. According to the New York Daily News, Whitney Houston’s will states that in the event of her daughter’s death, Bobbi Kristina’s grandmother and two uncles would inherit the fortune. Whitney Houston’s will didn’t include Bobbi Kristina’s father, Bobby Brown, after the ex-couple’s divorce in 2007.
At one point, Bobbi Kristina Brown’s boyfriend, Nick Gordon, was also believed to be the next in line to receive her fortune. Bobbi Kristina and Nick claimed that they had married in 2014, but Bobbi Kristina’s father said no marriage records exist. While she was in a coma, a judge granted her father and her aunt as co-guardians over her, but the financial situation was not mentioned at that time.
The sons of Hollywood icon Audrey Hepburn are reportedly embroiled in an estate battle against each other over a storage locker filled with their mother’s mementos – from jewelry and hats, to awards and photographs, Inquisitr reported on May 27.
According to the report, the Breakfast at Tiffany’s star wrote a will that granted her two sons, Sean Ferrer and Luca Dotti, ownership over the contents of the locker. However, the two were not able to divide up the memorabilia on their own, as Heburn’s will did not specify which son would keep which items.
Sean and Luca were the late star’s only children from two different marriages.
