Bobby Brown hit a setback in his master plan today in an Atlanta courtroom. Bobby Brown applied for what NBC affiliate WXIA was reporting as “guardianship” according to the post I made here. At that time, I was thinking of it as a conservatorship ala Britney Spears dad who had control over Britney’s medical care and her finances when she spent awhile in Crazy Land.
Today the court ruled,“Both Mr. Brown and Ms. Houston are jointly responsible for decisions related to Krissi’s care and medical needs. The Court has also appointed Bedelia Hargrove as the Conservator for Krissi. Ms. Hargrove is responsible for Krissi’s assets, including her likeness, rights and legal claims.” Source AJC Jennifer BrettBobby already had guardianship of Bobbi as next of kin. What Bobby wants is access to the money. It looks like Pat’s attorney put the squash on Bobby getting control of Bobbi’s finances. He would only have been able to get what she had already inherited anyway, however much that is. Instead, his net outcome is he didn’t get that, it went to a “neutral lawyer” instead. And even worse for Bobby’s plan is now Pat is a co-guardian over Bobbi’s health care which means he is not the sole decision maker and can’t whisk her off to New Jersey without Pat’s approval.
So in a proceeding begun by Bobby, he was the big loser and Pat came out ahead. That makes it even weirder that the Bobby and Pats attorney would make this joint statement.
Christopher Brown, attorney for Bobby Brown and David Long-Daniels attorney representing Pat Houston and Cissy Houston, issued this odd joint statement after the ruling.
“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’). Both Mr. Brown and Ms. Houston are jointly responsible for decisions related to Krissi’s care and medical needs. 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.
Working harmoniously to ensure Krissi receives the best care? When did that start? Now we wait to see who has Bedelia Hargrove in their pocket, I suppose.
