Whitney Houston's Child Custody Victory

Posted Thursday April 5, 2007 4:00 PM GMT

Talk about a lose-lose situation. A judge recently had to decide the custody of Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown's daughter, Bobbi Christina. While one parent typically stands out in these cases as the proper choice, Whitney and Bobby surely made it tough on the judge.

Not resorting to Option C - Neither, the judge has decided to grant custody rights to Whitney. According to Monsters & Critics, "The 'I Will Always Love You' singer's divorce was approved yesterday (May 4th) by Judge Franz E. Miller in California's Orange County court and will be finalized on April 24."

As a result, Whitney, now 43-years-old, will have full custody of her 14-year-old daughter. Houston was said to be emotional during the hearing, reportedly dabbing her eyes with a tissue before declining to comment on the proceedings as she left the courthouse.

Meanwhile, Bobby's lawyer said the 'My Prerogative' singer is not happy with the judge's ruling and plans on filing a petition to overturn the decision.

During their years of marriage, Brown was arrested for drug and alcohol related charges. Whitney didn't get the cuffs, but had twice entered rehab to be treated for addiction to crack cocaine.

Since their separation, Whitney has been recording a new album with J Records president Clive Davis in LA. Bobby, meanwhile, has been in and out of jail for failing to pay child support from a previous relationship.
