Ian Halperin, the investigative journalist who wrote a book about the late singer Whitney Houston and her daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown, said in his book that the 22-year-old will receive her $20 million inheritance in installments. She reportedly earned one of the installments on her twenty-first birthday.

The structure of the installments is very straightforward, the Inquisitr reported, adding that if Bobby Kristina dies before she turns 30, the disbursed funds would go back to the estate and her father Bobby Brown. The funds, which are yet to be disbursed, would go to Whitney’s mother Cissy, and her brothers Gary Garland and Michael Houston, if Bobbi Kristina dies.

The news comes even as Bobbi Kristina's family continues to feud over whether to keep the aspiring actress on life support.

“This [kind of family squabble] never happens — except all the time. The case would be pretty straightforward if the parties could appoint a single guardian. If other parties get involved and requests are made for approvals — good luck,” Michael Sukin of the Sukin Law Group, said, according to the Inquisitr.

Another complication in the inheritance case is the alleged marriage between Nick Gordon and Bobbi Kristina. If this is found to be true, he may stand a chance to inherit some of the estate. Bobby Brown has not allowed Gordon to meet Bobbi Kristina, accusing him of not revealing information about the night when Bobbi Kristina was found unconscious in a bathtub at her home in January.

Bobbi Kristina is currently at the DeKalb rehabilitation center in Atlanta in an unconscious state, while her family members continue to give conflicting reports about her health.
