Bobbi Kristina Brown's father Bobby Brown and aunt Patricia Houston have been named co-guardians of her estate, E! News reports.

When Bobbi Kristina's mother Whitney Houston died in 2012, the singer left her reported $20 million estate to her daughter. According to Whitney's will, if Bobbi Kristina were to die, the estate would be passed on to Whitney's mother Cissy Houston, brother Gary Houston and his wife, Pat.

Bobby Brown had previously filed for sole guardianship, but the joint arrangement was determined by a judge on Friday.

"We are delighted to inform the public that the court has appointed Bobby Brown and Pat Houston as co-guardians of Bobbi Kristina Brown ('Krissi')," Brown's attorney, Christopher Brown, and Cissy and Pat's attorney, David Long-Daniels, said in a joint statement. "Both Mr. Brown and Ms. Houston are jointly responsible for decisions related to Krissi's care and medical needs.

"Both parties are delighted with the Court's decision and are working harmoniously to ensure Krissi receives the best possible medical care," the statement continued. "We are appreciative of the manner in which Judge Jeryl Debra Rosh handled this matter."

Bobbi Kristina was discovered face down in a bathtub on Jan. 31. Though she is no longer in a coma, she remains unresponsive and has "irreversible brain damage," according to Cissy.
