Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown had a prenuptial agreement drawn up before they got married.
The late singer - who passed away last month at the age of just 48 - signed the document on July 17, 1992, and as well as banning him from accessing her will, it stated the income both parties earned during their marriage would remain separate property.
A pair of earrings Whitney Houston wore in 'The Bodyguard' are to be sold in an auction of her possessions.
The jewellery - which the late star donned opposite Kevin Costner in the hit 1992 film - is among several items that once belonged to the singer which are to be sold by Julien's Auctions in Beverly Hills as part of their 'Hollywood Legends' sale.
Whitney Houston's estate contains a pair of Ginger Rogers' dancing shoes personally signed by the screen icon.
The late singer was a huge fan of classic Hollywood movies and like her godmother Aretha Franklin - who collects Bette Davis and Judy Garland memorabilia, among other things - she was an avid buyer of memorabilia from her favourite film stars.
Chaka Khan made a plea to Whitney Houston to sort her life out before she died.
'Ain't Nobody' singer Chaka reached out to the 'My Love is Your Love' hitmaker - who had confessed to abusing cocaine and marijuana in the last decade - last year when they performed together and urged her to beat her personal demons.
