"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')."

From this day forward, "Both Mr. Brown and Ms. Houston are jointly responsible for decisions related to Krissi's care and medical needs."

The decision comes three months after the only daughter of the late music icon Whitney Houston was discovered unresponsive in a bathtub.

It also comes amid rumors regarding Bobby Brown fighting Whitney's family over his daughter's estate, believed to be worth eight figures.

Whatever issues the families have seem to be settled ... for now.

Houston and Brown spent Thursday in court, where a conservator - a neutral party - was also selected on behalf of Bobbi Kristina, 22.

The conservator represents the interests of a person who, for one reason or another, lacks the capacity to make decisions on their own.

Attorney Bedelia Hargrove will be "responsible for Krissi's assets, including her likeness, rights and legal claims," continues the statement.

"Both parties are delighted with the court's decision and are working harmoniously to ensure Krissi receives the best possible medical care."

"We are appreciative of the manner in which Judge Jeryl Debra Rosh handled this matter," the parties' statement concluded on Friday.

Bobbi Kristina remains on life support at an Atlanta-area rehab facility, where Bobby Brown and Pat Houston have been constant visitors.

As for Bobbi Kristina's estranged partner Nick Gordon, he is out of rehab and yearning to see his ailing lover, who he believes he can help.

Good luck convincing Bobby and Pat to let you in the door, Nick.
