Kenny Meisalas said in a phone interview Thursday that "things with the family have been very smooth, no problems." He said things are proceeding normally, and he doesn't expect any challenges to the will.

Whitney Houston's will was filed in probate court in Atlanta Wednesday. It revealed that the late superstar left all her assets to her only child, 19-year-old Bobbi Kristina. Her sister-in-law and manager, Pat Houston, was named as the administrator of the estate.

Meisalas declined to talk about Houston's assets or possible debts.

Whitney Houston's sister-in-law says she feared that the singer's life would be ended by drugs.

In an interview with Oprah Winfrey, Patricia Houston said she would be "kidding herself" to say otherwise.

Patricia Houston, who was her sister-in-law's manager, was asked if she thought drugs would end up "taking" Whitney Houston. The "handwriting was kind of on the wall," Patricia Houston replied in an interview to air 9 p.m. EDT Sunday on the OWN channel.

The pop star's life was changing, Patricia Houston said, suggesting that substance abuse wasn't the problem but rather her "lifestyle." Whitney Houston was looking for love "in all the wrong places," her sister-in-law told Winfrey.

Tests were being conducted to reveal the cause of the singer's Feb. 11 death.
