It looks like Bobby Brown didn’t plan on spending much time at his ex-wife Whitney Houston’s funeral – that or he was kicked out after only spending fifteen minutes inside the church that held the superstar’s memorial service.
According to reports, Bobby brought an entourage that included nine people to the funeral and was turned away from Hope Baptist Church when there wasn’t enough seating for everyone.
According to the singer himself, his entourage included his children (who were once very close to Whitney and considered her to be like their mother) but due to a “security mix-up” left after only fifteen minutes.
Bobby told People Magazine: “My children and I were invited to the funeral of my ex-wife Whitney Houston. We were seated by security and then subsequently asked to move on three separate occasions. I fail to understand why security treated my family this way and continue to ask us to move.”
According to rumors, Whitney’s family still blames Bobby for her downward spiral and subsequent drug use that ultimately led to her untimely death.
Radar Online reports that Whitney and Bobby’s daughter, 18-year-old Bobbi Kristina wasn’t even aware of the fiasco that was going on a few rows behind her. Apparently, the security team at the church didn’t even allow Bobby to see his daughter.
While we’re not sure which side to believe here – if Bobby indeed was pushed out of the church by being moved around so many times or if he really only wanted to be there for fifteen minutes – one thing is for sure: Whitney sure deserves much better respect than this.
