Pat Houston was accused by Bobbi Kristina Brown’s aunt Leolah Brown of wanting Bobbi dead because it was costing to much to keep her alive. Now Bobby Brown has uncharacteristically come to Pat’s defense and called Leolah a liar. Bobbi Kristina Brown is still unresponsive, but “awake” in a rehabilitation center in Atlanta, Georgia. While there have been few changes to Bobbi’s status, the family drama continues to unfold with Bobby Brown’s furious response to Leolah Brown’s latest attack on Pat Houston. Bobby insists Leolah is lying for attention and hasn’t even seen Bobbi.
Leolah shared a lengthy message on Facebook, continuing her attack on Pat Houston. During her rant, Brown claimed that Pat had revealed her true colors, and told Bobby Brown to end Bobbi Kristina’s life support because it was draining the $20 million inheritance.
Pat and Cissy Houston have been facing more than a few raised eyebrows. Both women dominate the family, and both have been very vocal about their feelings towards Bobbi Kristina’s condition. Cissy isn’t shy in telling the media she is “alright” if her granddaughter dies, and often contradicts any news of Bobbi Kristina’s health. In May, Cissy told Entertainment Tonight, “She’s the same. She’s not progressing at all,” before adding, “She’s not gone yet, but you know, whatever the Lord decides, I’m ready for her… I have nothing to do with that.”
It would seem like a family simply ready to let go, but it’s hard to ignore the fact that upon Bobbi Kristina’s death, Pat and Cissy Houston will inherit the remaining $20 million Whitney Houston left her only daughter. After Whitney died, rumors of bitterness followed when Whitney snubbed Pat and Cissy in her will, leaving every dime to Bobbi Kristina.
Now, it seems like Leolah may have some kind of truth in her message, but Bobby Brown is livid with Leolah’s public tirade. An insider very close to Bobby told TMZ that Brown is “indignant that Leolah Brown accused Pat Houston of pushing to let Bobbi Kristina die because her medical expenses are eating away at a possible inheritance.”
Beyond Bobby Brown’s anger that Leolah is sharing the details of personal family drama, Bobby claims it’s all a lie! “Leolah is making it all up and hasn’t even been around his daughter — so she has no idea what Pat’s feelings are about Bobbi Kristina’s condition..” So, why would Leolah go to such extremes with serious accusations and long-winded statements? The source says Bobby feels Leolah’s motivation is centered on getting attention.
The source also added that there is a truth to the rumors the Brown family and the Houston family are not getting along, but Leolah’s accusations that Pat had something to do with Bobbi Kristina’s drowning incident and has a death wish for Bobbi, are false. It’s clear things have been beyond tense between Bobby Brown and Pat Houston. Cissy Houston is another one of Bobby’s problems. The matriarchs are fighting for power, but a judge has given a court-appointed attorney the responsibility of handling the money situation, while Bobby Brown and Pat Houston now share co-guardianship regarding Bobbi Kristina Brown’s medical decisions.
