Bobbi Kristina will get allotted amounts when she turns 21 and 25, with the full total on her 30th birthday, according to press reports. She has also given an interview to Oprah Winfrey that will air on her television network OWN on March 11.

Houston’s record label, Sony Legacy Records owned her albums and paid Houston the royalties for the songs she specifically performed. She also didn’t write her own songs and therefore did not have revenue for those publishing rights.

Houston was found at a Beverly Hills hotel submerged underwater in a bathtub on Feb. 11 and the cause of death is still unknown. She was 48.
