Casey Johnson‘s 3-year-old daughter Ava – who the Johnson & Johnson heiress adopted from Kazakhstan in 2007 – will be raised by Casey’s mother, Sale, and her sisters, TMZ reports.
Sale Johnson took custody of little Ava earlier this year out of concern for the toddler’s safety. Reportedly, the Johnson family wants Ava to remain with Sale – along with her husband Ahmad Rashad – for good. Rashad is an American sportscaster and a former professional football player. Casey’s father is New York Jets owner Robert (Woody) Johnson 4th.
It is unclear when (or if) the Johnson family will file adoption papers for Ava.
Johnson died on January 4 of unknown causes. Authorities said today it could take more than a month to make a final determination of what caused the death of the heiress to the Johnson & Johnson fortune.
