Based on her reaction to her mother's death - a pair of hospitalizations and rumored drug use - it's no surprise that the family of Whitney Houston is concerned over the emotional well-being of Bobbi Kristina Brown.

But a rep for the family now confirms they are worried about her financial well-being, as well.

On Saturday afternoon, The Associated Press provided a live feed of the funeral in Newark, one that was posted by countless websites (including THG). However, we were required to take down the video within 24 hours and this is why:

The family has "agreed to license footage to several media outlets," an insider tells TMZ, adding that the Houstons are charging "customary fees" to ... "help maximize the estate for the benefit of Bobbi Kristina."

The ceremony lasted for a couple hours and included performances by Stevie Wonder (above), Alicia Keys, R. Kelly and a beautiful eulogy by Kevin Costner.
