Details of Whitney Houston's will have been filed.

Papers relating to her inheritance were unveiled in Atlanta yesterday (March 7), with the late singer leaving everything to her only child, 19-year-old Bobbi Kristina Brown.

Her daughter, whose father is ex-husband Bobby Brown, will receive part of her inheritance after she turns 21, before receiving further payments at the age of 25 and 30.

No specific assets were mentioned but furnishings, clothing and jewellery were all to be included, according to papers obtained by The Insider.

Houston's trustees, which include her sister-in-law Donna and brother Michael, can give her daughter money for various purposes, including tuition, to buy a house or to start a business. Her sister-in-law and manager, Patricia Houston, has been appointed administrator of the estate and her mum Cissy named as executor of the will.

It was signed by the late singer on February 3, 1993, about a month before she gave birth to her daughter.

Earlier this week, Los Angeles County Coroner's Office apparently received calls from people claiming to be relatives of Houston and demanded a murder investigation be opened into her death.

Despite these claims, her death is likely to be ruled as accidental, according to sources close to the investigation.

Houston passed away on February 11 at the age of 48, after she was discovered underwater and unconscious in a bath at a hotel in Beverly Hills.
