Bobbi Kristina Brown remains unresponsive with “irreversible brain damage” as father Bobby Brown and aunt Patricia Houston are named co-guardians of her estate.
Brown filed for sole guardianship, but a judge ruled that her father and aunt Pat Houston are jointly responsible for decisions made on Krissy’s medical care and assets.
Bobbi Kristina’s mother Whitney Houston died in 2012, leaving her reported $20 million estate to her daughter.
Whitney’s will states that if Bobbi Kristina were to die that the estate would be passed on to Whitney’s mother Cissy Houston, brother Gary Houston and his wife, Pat.
Bobby Brown wanted sole guardianship, but the joint arrangement was determined by a judge on Friday.
Bobby’s attorney, Christopher Brown, said in a statement, “We are delighted to inform the public that the court has appointed Bobby Brown and Pat Houston as co-guardians of Bobbi Kristina Brown. Both Mr. Brown and Ms. Houston are jointly responsible for decisions related to Krissi’s care and medical needs.
“Both parties are delighted with the Court’s decision and are working harmoniously to ensure Krissi receives the best possible medical care. We are appreciative of the manner in which Judge Jeryl Debra Rosh handled this matter.”
The statement also reveals lawyer Bedelia Hargrove was appointed conservator to oversee Bobbi Kristina’s assets, including her rights and legal claims.
Bobbi Kristina was found face down under water in a bathtub on Jan. 31.
She is longer in a coma, but she remains unresponsive and has “irreversible brain damage”.
