Cissy Houston is really afraid that her granddaughter, Bobbi Kristina, will go down the same path as her mother, Whitney Houston, and end up dead from drugs. This reportedly why Houston wants to withhold Bobbi’s multi-million-dollar inheritance, sources tell TMZ.
Sources say Houston 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 the chance.
Sources add that the grandmother also feels 19-year-old Bobbi is still extremely impressionable right now — and if left unchecked with millions of dollars, Bobbi could end up on the wrong path.
According to sources, Cissy wants to wait until Bobbi has matured significantly more before she gets her money, an estate estimated at $20 million. The family matriarch insists that she is tryign to protect her family, not keep the money to herself.
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.
