Whitney Houston’s loved ones are fighting to keep the late singer’s legacy alive.

In doing so, her former manager and sister-in-law, Pat Houston said that she decided to sell the singer’s assets after her untimely death in 2012. During a recent interview, Pat talked about selling the assets as a way to skew the negativity that surrounded Houston and her tumultuous relationships.

“With everything that’s going on right now, she’s still touching lives, and that’s what I want to do in a very positive way…She should be remembered by her music and the work that she’s done in the community, not by her relationships.” 

She continued, “And the fact that all these things are happening proves that. It’s a clear path without any distractions to make things continue to happen for her legacy.” According to reports, the “I Will Always Love You” singer’s estate was worth $14 million that would quadruple due to partnerships. The estate also includes publishing, name, likeness, brand and master recording revenue. 

Houston’s company, Primary Wave is also behind the upcoming biopic I Wanna Dance With Somebody and has plans to release a perfume line, a partnership with MAC Cosmetics, and a book on Houston’s life.
