Home Celebrity Exclusive: News Sites Are Running an Outdated Whitney Houston Will

“Inside Edition” and The New York Post sparked a frenzy on Wednesday night. They ran an outdated version of Whitney Houston’s will. We have the right one, with the 2004 codicil and all the changes Houston made to the Will. It’s posted right now at  http://blogs.forbes.com/rogerfriedman/. It’s really embarrassing, too, because I posted the news of the updated Will around 7pm and the codicil exclusively a couple of hours later with a statement from Whitney’s lawyer, Kenneth Meiselas. The other news organizations also did not know that today in Atlanta, the Houston went into probate court and named Pat Houston, Whitney’s sister in law and manager, as executor. Mother Cissy Houston is now a trustee. But on the Forbes site you can read the codicil and see the statement. If the 2000 codicil had stood, Whitney’s other sister-in-law, Donna Houston, and her husband, Michael, would have been trustees and Whitney’s old lawyer, Sheldon Platt, would have been the executor. That’s the way “Inside Edition” and the Post have it.
