Whitney Houston‘s daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown has reportedly lined up a couple of powerhouse mentors in her quest to become a pop star like her late mother.

Radar Online is reporting that Mariah Carey and former “American Idol” judge Randy Jackson are serving as her advisors.

“Mariah and Randy were close friends of Whitney’s and were heartbroken after she died suddenly in 2012. They kept in touch. Now Randy has decided he wants to make a full court press to help Bobbi Kristina become a star– and Mariah told him she wanted in, too!” a source close to music producer Jackson told Radar.

“Mariah would love to step in and provide mentoring to BK because she and Randy have been so close and even worked together on last season’s ‘American Idol.’ They have years of music experience between them and will share all their knowledge with Bobbi Kristina.

“Randy wants to move quickly and is presenting a plan for the potential star that gets her on the pop charts in under 12 months.”

The source added: “For her part, Bobbi Kristina is being extremely careful about her first steps into the pop singing world.”

Houston, 20, struggled with fame, suffering through a troubled marriage to rapper Bobby Brown and drug problems. She drowned to death in her hotel bathtub at the Beverly Hilton on Feb. 11, 2012 on the eve of the Grammy Awards. Houston was just 48 years old.

Now, Bobbi Kristina, newly married to longtime boyfriend Nick Gordon, “wants to be a singing star just like her mom, but she wants to be really careful about how she does it. Bobbi Kristina understands how important first impressions are when you release music.”

According to the source, Bobbi Kristina is interested in also writing her own music as well as singing, but “hasn’t had a lot of formal training in that department, despite her parents having had writing credits on many major hits.”

    Sorry, don’t know about talent, but she is too hard on the eyes. Her mother was a Goddess to look at, and even more of a Goddess to listen to. that’s going to be hard to compete with for this child.

  2. Good for her!!! I think she has talent, her mom and dad could sing and her dad could dance. I always figured she would be the star out of the 3 of them. Good for anyone whom is going to help her. My mom died young and it was hard!!!

      By all means let her get an education, but to say she has no talent could be a bit of a stretch. Assumptions are being made such as well her mother and father could sing, so surely their daughter can sing. Bobbie Kristina’s talent might be in another area but if she wants to sing, let her start out doing background vocals.
