Bobbi Kristina: How Much Was Whitney Houston's Daughter Worth When She Died?

Bobbi Kristina Brown lived a high profile life up until her untimely passing at the age of 22. As the only child of the late singer Whitney Houston and fellow R&B artist Bobby Brown, Bobbi Kristina grew up in the spotlight. She got her start at an early age after appearing alongside her mom on a number of her songs including "My Love Is Your Love" in 1998, "Little Drummer Boy" in 2003, and "Family First" in 2007, via Discogs

As an actress, Bobbi Kristina was cast in 2011's For Better or Worse, and she also appeared as herself in reality shows that featured her and her famous parents, including Being Bobby Brown in 2005 and The Houstons: On Our Own in 2012, via IMDb. Unfortunately, Bobbi Kristina didn't get the chance to get far in her own career prior to her death in 2015. After her mother's tragic death in 2012, Bobbi Kristina filled media tabloids until her own death three years later, which was eerily similar to her mother's, as noted by Entertainment Tonight.

Bobbi Kristina Brown inherited a trust fund

At the time of Bobbi Kristina Brown's death in 2015, the 22-year-old had a net worth of about $20 million, Celebrity Net Worth reported. The majority of her wealth was being held in a trust fund that was established after her mother Whitney Houston's death in 2012. It was set to be passed down in increments. 

Brown was just 19 when her mother passed away in an accidental drowning incident with "traces of cocaine and prescription medications" in her system, according to ABC News. As a result, Bobbi Kristina received around $2 million from her trust fund when she turned 21. That deposit was estimated to be only 10% of the full $20 million that was being held for her. Another 15%, or $2.7 million, was scheduled to go to her when she turned 25 in 2018, and the rest would've been given out on her 30th birthday. 

But on July 26, 2015, Bobbi Kristina died after months in a medically-induced coma after she was found unconscious in a bathtub in her Atlanta home. Her partner, Nick Gordon, was found legally liable for her death, per The Washington Post. According to The Things, Bobbi Kristina's estate went to her grandmother Cissy Houston and her two brothers.
