After Whitney's Money!

| Filed under: Whitney Houston


Some people (and A LOT of celebrities!) have pretty dysfunctional families!

Problems always seem to occur when money is involved. Just ask Whitney Houston!

The singer is being sued by her stepmother.


Stepmommy says Whitney owes her money and needs to pay off her condo.

The whole thing goes back to 2003 when Whitney's father died.

Barbara Houston claims that Whitney "improperly kept the proceeds from John Houston's $1 million insurance policy" after his death.

According to the lawsuit, Whitney was supposed to use the $723,000 to pay off the remaining mortgage on her father's Fort Lee condominium. She apparently holds the mortgage on the condo.

Stepmom Barbara still lives in the condo and is also claiming that Whitney was, according to her dead husband's wishes, supposed to return the remaining insurance money to her.

Attorneys for both parties have refused to comment.

Wonder why the insurance money was given to Whitney and not to her dad's wife?

Either way, who do U think should have gotten the money?

Make sure your will explicitly expresses your wishes, y'all. Dramz like this can be avoided.

    doesnt matter who is right or wrong.. you don't sue your daughter for $$, even if the daughter is not blood-related. family members suing other family members is just plain sad and pathetic

    Ask her local drug dealer, pretty sure he has that $723,000 that was for the mortgage

    It should go to whomever the father said it should. Respect your family especially your disceased family people get crazy when it comes to money. Im sure theyre both guilty of greed but c'mon Whitney has not had a hit in a while but she still must have money. She has no reason to steal…unless she smoked it all away??…

    In pretty much every state the wife gets the insurance money, If you are married it is automatic, Whitney should never have had the money in the first place.

    Whitney was probably the one paying the life insurance. Whomever paid for it should get it. Have a WILL people. That is the only way to know for sure your wished will be granted!!

    whitney cocaine is bad for you give the money to the poor old lady please!!!

  28. 28

    Perez FYI- Insurance proceeds to not pass through a Will. It is a contractual obligation between the Ins. Company and the Insured. If Whittney is the one listed as the beneficiary then that's who the $ goes to. If the wife was not listed then she's probably SOL.
    Stupid stupid people that say insurance automatically goes to wife. Not so. You can leave your money to your dog if you want to. Morons!

  29. 29

    let the lawyers sort it out then they will have it all.

  30. 30

    Bet all that money went for some fine dope.

    You can try, but in most states they allow a spouse to contest that on the basis of need, and how well they knew the person i.e. I couldn't take out an insurance policy on you, we have no connection…and along with that Whitney has no need of the one millions dollars so the wife's lawyer would have asked why she was paying for the life insurance if that was the case…etc…

    I have to say those are some ugly tits. And I don't say that often!

  33. 33

    Whitney, don't put on your make-up with a butter knife!

  34. 34

    Whitney is probably the money maker in the family, so she should get her money. The gold digging stepmother needs to move out, and disappear from Whitney life.

  35. 35

    If the "Will" said $$$ goes to Whit Whit then she is not obligated to pay off someone else condo. Daddy must not have cared much for his wife to let this happen.

    Step family members are so pathetic. give whit a break, she already has problems (her boobs are far apart)

  38. 38

    EEWWWW!! Gross boob-job…

    I love Whitney; we're Jersey Girls.

    WHATEVER IS WRITTEN IN THE WILL is what it is. Verbal promises and/or
    contracts are not acceptable. Too bad, so sad Golddigger. XO

    First of all, why didn't Whitney pay for this condo a long time ago? Secondly, of course her stepmother should get the money. Whitney doesn't need it and that lady is probably old and could use the money.

  42. 42

    Um maybe because she used to be Whitney's maid and was half her fathers age and only married to him for a short while before he passed away. Check the facts. Whitney's father obviously gave it to the person he trusted the most…btw how many more family members are going to sell Whitney out? The worst is everything always turns out to be a lie on their part and always involves money. It's a wonder she trust anybody.

  43. 43

    Insurance companies don't care about wishes — they care about named beneficiaries. The only reasons they'd have sent the money to Houston is because Houston was named as the beneficiary on the policy, or because a beneficiary was not named and she is the next of kin (meaning perhaps that stepmommy wasn't really stepmommy in the eyes of the law).

  44. 44

    What's with her chest? Are those supposed to be BREASTS? I”ve seen BREASTS before and that is NOT what normal ones l@@k like.

  45. 45

    Perez Hates Me ^^

  46. 46

    I'm glad Whitnety took the money, that's her father it should go to her whether she has money of her own or not. Her step mom needs to get a grip, obviously he didn't want the money going to her or he would have had a will written out.

  47. 47

    Her breast implants are worse than posh's

  48. 48

    If stepmom and deceased father were still married, the stepmom should have got the money. Whitney has her own money. Why take away from stepmom? I mean, even if Whitney doesnt like her, her father must have. Im sure Whitney still has millions of dollars. Give stepmom the money and call it a day.

  49. 49

    omg this is so sad she looks so old.. she could have had a career the span of madonna. drugs suck.

  50. 50

    If Whitney is listed as the beneficiary on the insurance policy, which is a contract b/w her father and the insurance company, then she gets the money - the letter of the contracts trumps everything, including his wishes besides what was memorialized in that specific contract or whatever he may have said in a will. Wills don't cover insurance policies.

  51. 51

    I couldnt even read the article..are those implants?? good god, they look horrible!

  52. 52

    she needs a makeup artist

  53. 53

    It's funny everyone said MARIAH was copying Whitney. But look at it now where is Whitney, now? She is also coping MC the 'sexier' appeal the young boyfriend and her slowly approaching to a hip hop and rnb taste. But looks like MC came out on Top she's still raking in cash as for Whitney poor girl is broke as hell.

    Wow! Drugs really have taken their toll on Whit. She looks like Dionne Warwick with a horrid wig on her head. What a waste of actual talent. Thanks Bobby Brown.
