Last November Whitney Houston’s 47 year old stepmother filed a lawsuit against her because when Whitney’s father died back in 2003, Stepmom found out Pop Houston had named Whitney as the sole beneficiary of a 1 million dollar life insurance policy. Stepmama filed the suit because she believes her husband left instructions for Whitney to pay off her condo and to give her any money left over. First of all, that money been long gone. Second of all Whitney’s counter suit claims that she was the one who provided her father with the mortgage loan to purchase the condo and was still owed most of the principal and all the interest when he died. So there.
