Whitney Houston’s daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown plans to change her name to lessen her connection to her father, Bobby Brown, TMZ reports.
Bobbi Kristina Brown, 19, has reportedly told friends she will become “Kristina Houston.”
Reportedly, Bobbi Kristina first showed interest in changing her name six years ago when her parents separated, but Whitney stopped her from going through with it.
Houston and Brown married in July 1992 and their daughter was born in March 1993, but their marriage was marred by drug use and a battery charge. The troubled pair split in 2006, after 14 years of marriage.
Bobbi Kristina most recently spoke with Oprah Winfrey in an interview that aired on OWN about how she has been coping since her mother’s death. The Houston Family interview was a huge ratings success for Winfrey and OWN.
