After months of alleged squabbling among family members as Whitney Houston's daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown, remains hospitalized, lawyers for her father, Bobby, as well as for her grandmother Cissy Houston and aunt Pat Houston, issued a statement Friday about who will oversee the medical care of the 22-year-old, reports the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Bobby Brown and Pat Houston, Whitney Houston’s sister-in-law, who also managed the late singer, have been named co-guardians. Atlanta lawyer Bedelia Hargrove was granted authority to handle Bobbi Kristina’s financial matters. Bobbi Kristina has been hospitalized since a Jan. 31 medical emergency, the report says.
“Both Mr. Brown and Ms. Houston are jointly responsible for decisions related to Krissi’s care and medical needs,” the statement reads. “The court has also appointed Bedelia Hargrove as the conservator for Krissi. Ms. Hargrove is responsible for Krissi’s assets, including her likeness, rights and legal claims.”
The statement appears to knock down allegations of tensions between the Houston and Brown sides of Bobbi Kristina’s family during her long medical ordeal, the report says. “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 reads, according to the site.
