Estate Planning Boot Camp: Lesson 4 - Whitney Houston’s Legacy

Updated: Feb 4, 2021

Whitney Houston’s Last Will and Testament is a prime example of the problems that arise when insufficient estate planning is in place. Whitney Houston left her entire estate to her 19-year-old daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown. Various news reports state that Bobbi Kristina turned to drugs to cope with her 48-year-old mother’s premature death and the public pressure of constant media attention. In addition, she also needed to cope with becoming a multi-millionaire. This article reviews Whitney Houston’s will and suggests ways in which estate planning could have aided Bobbi Kristina and the legacy Whitney Houston left behind.
