The data about Whitney Houston net worth, which she left to her daughter, Bobby Christina Brown, after her tragic death in 2012, is very different. According to the richest, her net worth was $20 million. But Celebritynetworth estimated the fortune of a pop diva as negative $20 million, because she went bust during the last years of her life and had $20 million debt to Sony recording company.

In fact, the story of Whitney Houston success and failure is the classic story of a big international star. She was incredibly talented to become well known and loved in each home in USA and all over the world. But she was not a businesslike person to keep her stardom and wealth.

Whitney Houston was born in a family of a singer (mother) and entertainment executive (father) and performing art was close to her heart since childhood. The girl was both, very melodious and beautiful and she started her career as a model in late 80-s. Her cute face appeared in many reputable issues like “Cosmopolitan”, “Seventeen” and many others.

In early 90-s she started her career of a singer. Whitney was extremely slim, but her voice impressed everyone with its depth and power. She was even nicknamed as “The Voice” in press. To the moment of her death Houston recorded 5 studio albums and each of them was certified as platinum.

Whitney recorded 11 singles, which topped Billboard 200 – it is a record number of singles, which were performed by one and the same person.

The music star also tried her hand as an actress and was successful in this area too. She starred in such hits as “The Bodyguard”, “The Preacher's Wife” and some others.

To the moment of her death from overdose in February, 2012 Whitney lost the major part of her popularity and of her net worth. The reason was her drug addiction.
