Love will save the day—as will family hopefully.
Whitney Houston's mother, Cissy Houston, and her sister-in-law and business manager, Marion Houston, are asking a Georgia judge to modify the existing terms of the late singer's will.
Per a petition filed Sept. 25 with Fulton County Superior Court in Atlanta and obtained by E! News, the duo took the action to protect Whitney's daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown, from those who would seek to take advantage of her.
As executors of the estate, Cissy and Marion say in court docs that they would like to restructure the inheritance payouts to Bobbi Kristina because they're concerned that the current distribution schedule would "defeat or substantially impair" the trust's purpose of providing for her continued support and welfare.
