Singer in legal battle
Whitney Houston is being sued by her stepmother Barbara over her dad’s life insurance policy.
The singer is accused of improperly keeping $1 million (£650,000) left by John Houston when he died 5 years ago.
Her stepmum claims that Whitney, 45, should have paid off the £468,000 mortgage on her father’s New Jersey house, where Barbara still lives, and returned the remaining cash to her.
Lawyers for both parties declined to comment, reports the BBC.
