Whitney Houston Awarded Custody Of Child

A judge ruled Wednesday (April 4.) that R&B queen Whitney Houston will get custody of her teenage daughter, after her 14-year marriage to Bobby Brown officially ends this month. Orange County Superior Court Judge Franz E. Miller ruled that the divorce will become final April 24, as Houston listens with tears in her eyes. Brown did not attend the hearing. In court, Houston testified that she did not need spousal or child support and that the couple’s 14-year-old daughter, Bobbi Kristina, could not depend on Brown. “He’s unreliable,” Houston told the judge. “If he says he’s going to come, sometimes he does. Usually he doesn’t.” Brown’s attorney, Ram Cogan, said he will seek to overturn the judge’s decision, reports CNN. Houston filed for divorce in October, citing irreconcilable differences. She was granted a default judgment in December to speed up the divorce.
