Bobby Brown Granted Co-Guardianship of Bobbi Kristina


LifetimeBobby Brown and Pat Houston will be co-guardians for Bobbi Kristina Brown.

Their attorneys said in a statement Friday that Bobby Brown and the sister-in-law of Bobbi Kristina’s late mother, Whitney Houston, spent a day in court working out the agreement.

“We are delighted to inform the public that the court has appointed Bobby Brown and Pat Houston as co-guardians of Bobbi Kristina Brown (‘Krissi’),” read a statement issued by David Long-Daniels, counsel for Pat Houston and Cissy Houston, and Christopher Brown, an attorney for Bobby Brown. “Both Mr. Brown and Ms. Houston are jointly responsible for decisions related to Krissi’s care and medical needs.”

A court-appointed attorney, Bedelia Hargrove, will act as a conservator for the 22-year-old. Hargrove, according to her law firm bio, “specializes in fiduciary litigation, probate and estate administration, estate planning, personal injury and wrongful death cases, as well as general civil litigation.”

“Ms. Hargrove is responsible for Krissi’s assets, including her likeness, rights and legal claims,” the statement read. “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.”

Rosh, a judge for the probate court of DeKalb County in Georgia, confirmed in paperwork from April 24 that Brown’s guardianship petition had been received.

“A petition for guardianship has been filed and received by this office,” read the document, which was obtained by ABC News. “No further information is available on this subject at this time.”

Cissy Houston, Bobbi Kristina’s maternal grandmother, told Entertainment Tonight on Saturday that Bobbi Kristina is “not progressing at all.” She said, “She’s not gone yet, but you know, whatever the Lord decides, I’m ready for her…I have nothing to do with that. That’s His job. It’s His territory, you know? And I understand it.”

Bobbi Kristina, 22, was hospitalized in January after she was found unresponsive in a bathtub in her Georgia home. In March, she was moved to a rehab facility nearby.
