Emily Cissy Houston, Whitney's mother, and Marion Houston, Whitney's sister-in-law, are in charge of handling the financial affairs of Whitney Houston's estate. The pair wants to restructure Whitney's daughter's--Bobbi Kristina Brown's--inheritance payments because they fear she is a target for people to exert undue influence on her or seek to benefit from her inheritance. In an attempt to do so, they have filed a petition against Bobbi Kristina Brown asserting that inheritance disbursements to Brown need to be amended to fulfill Whitney's "'intent to provide long-term financial security and protection for her child.'"
