The Bobby Brown Drama at Whitney Houston’s Funeral Service
Whitney Houston’s “Home Going” service lasted about 4 hours long this past weekend, and probably one of the most talked about moments occurred just 20 minutes into the service…Bobby Brown’s sudden exit.
It was originally noted that Bobby Brown was not invited to attend any of the funeral services for Whitney Houston, but apparently Whitney’s family also wanted to keep the peace and decided to invite him to the service. When Bobby arrived at the Church, he was told that he could sit in the front pew (with the Houston family) but his 3 children (excluding Bobbi Kristina) would have to sit further back with other family members. Bobby also broke a promise to not approach his daughter, Bobbi Kristina, unless she initiated the contact. So when security asked him to return to his seat, Bobby kissed Whitney’s coffin and walked out of the Church.
A lawyer for the Houston family says that Bobby Brown was fully aware of the seating arrangements before the service, but after the service Bobby said that security repeatedly asked him to move and “prevented” him from seeing his children.
