Bobbi Kristina Brown knows her late mother Whitney Houston is ''happy and smiling'' as she looks down on her.
The 19-year-old actress is finding it easier to cope with the death of the legendary singer - who passed away in February - because she feels the 'I Will Always Love You' hitmaker is ''applauding'' her own legacy and keeping an eye on her daughter.
Britney Spears paid tribute to Whitney Houston at a special concert held in her honour last night (11.10.12).
The 'Toxic' singer - who was there to present a clip during the event - revealed she landed a record contract thanks to her performance of Whitney's song 'I Have Nothing', but said the show, entitled 'We Will Always Love You: A Grammy Salute to Whitney Houston', was a ''solemn'' occasion.
Bobbi Kristina Brown has got engaged to her 'adopted' brother Nick Gordon
The aspiring actress - the daughter of Bobby Brown and the late Whitney Houston - surprises her dismayed family with the news in a preview from her upcoming reality show 'Houstons: On Our Own', nervously telling them: ''We're engaged!''
Britney Spears will take part in the Whitney Houston tribute tomorrow (14.10.12).
The 'Toxic' singer is ''humbled'' to have been chosen to co-host the 'We Will Always Love You: A Grammy Salute to Whitney Houston' event alongside Halle Berry, actress Taraji P. Henson and rapper LL Cool J, in order to celebrate the legacy of the late superstar.
Cissy Houston is afraid her granddaughter Bobbi Kristina Brown will die in a ''haze of drugs and other bad influences'' like her mother Whitney Houston if she receives her multi-million dollar inheritance now.
The 79-year-old grandmother is reportedly concerned the 19-year-old aspiring actress will be corrupted by the ''negative influences'' in her life if she gets her hands on the reputed $20 million estate Whitney - who died in February from the effects of heart disease and cocaine use - bequeathed to her.
Trustees of Whitney Houston's estate have made a legal bid to have payments to her daughter changed.
Members of the trust - including the late singer's mother Cissy - fear 19-year-old Bobbi Kristina Brown is under the ''undue influence'' of unsavoury people and worry the current payment schedule could jeopardise the teenager's long-term financial security.
