Before Whitney Houston died Bobby Brown (Whitney’s ex-husband) never showed much interest in his daughter Bobbi Kristina. Now that Whitney is gone sources say Bobby Brown wants to create a relationship with his daughter before she cashes in.
According to the NY Post, “Brown is attempting to get close to his daughter Bobbi Kristina, who is sole heir to his ex-wife’s estimated $20 million fortune, in a bid to get his hands on the cash, family sources told TMZ.
Her mother Cissy Houston is trying to stop Brown from getting close to the 18 year old because she fears the rapper is broke and just wants to line his own pockets, according to a source.
Friends of the family already told Brown he is not welcome at the funeral or in Bobbi Kristina’s life, according to TMZ. They believe Brown is responsible for the drug and alcohol problems both his ex-wife and daughter experienced.
Brown is aware of the family’s feelings but wants to bury the hatchet, according to sources. Brown released a statement Wednesday addressing his daughter’s emotional stability — and pleading for privacy.
“My daughter Bobbi Kristina is doing much better,” Brown said in the statement. “We continue to provide love and support to Bobbi Kristina. She is dealing with the tragedy of her mother’s death and would prefer to do it outside of the public eye.”
