The Battles Continue in Bobbi Kristina Brown's Estate

Bobbi Kristina Brown's estate, similar to the estate of her mother Whitney Houston before her, is locked in massive family disagreements and this time the estate administrator is suing the trustees.

The drama continues with the estate of Bobbi Kristina Brown as the family of her mother, Whitney Houston, fights with Bobbi Kristina's father, Bobby Brown, over the estate of Whitney Houston.

At one point it even included a boyfriend who claimed to have been secretly married to Bobbi Kristina. Now, there is a new development. The estate administrator has filed suit against the co-trustees of Bobbi Kristina's trust, Cissy and Pat Houston.

Radar reported on this story in "Bobbi Kristina Brown's Estate Sues Pat & Cissy Houston Over Unpaid Bills."

The trust is supposed to pay for the costs of administering the estate. However, according to the administrator, Cissy and Pat Houston will not pay any bills unless they consider the bills reasonable. The administrator claims that this has impeded the operation of the estate.

Given the contentious nature of the estate so far, it would be easy to quickly condemn the trustees for acting improperly. On the other hand, without knowing the exact nature of the bills the administrator submitted for payment it would be unwise to rush to judgment.

Trustees have an independent fiduciary duty not to waste the assets of the trust.

If the payments demanded by the administrator are unreasonable, then the trustees might have been right not to pay them. Before doing that it would have been best for the trustees to consult with an attorney.
