Bobbi Kristina Brown has been placed in the media spotlight once again. Her grandmother Cissy Houston, the mother of the late Whitney Houston, recently raised concerns about the 19-year-old's multimillion dollar inheritance. Additionally, Cissy and her sister-in-law have taken legal action to revise the payment process of Brown's estimated $20 million inheritance by filing a petition this week.

According to sources, Cissy believes that Bobbi Kristina's father Bobby Brown and her boyfriend/adopted brother Nick Gordon will be "negative influences," possibly placing her life at risk. "[Bobbi Kristina] is a highly visible target for those who would exert undue influence over her inheritance and/or seek to benefit from respondent's resources and celebrity," the petition reportedly read.
