Whitney Houston's Family To Ban Bobby Brown From Her Funeral — New Report

Bobby Brown

Sources tell ‘Extra’ that if Bobby shows up to Whitney’s funeral on Feb. 18. he’ll be turned away — do you think that’s horrible since he’s the only parent their 18-year-old daughter Bobbi Kristina has left?

Whitney Houston‘s family is reportedly divided over whether to allow Whitney’s ex-husband Bobby Brown at her funeral. A shocking new report by Extra claims that insiders say Bobby will “most likely be turned away” if he shows up this weekend. Bobby is reportedly trying to take care of his inconsolable daughter Bobbi Kristina, 18, who allegedly had suicidal thoughts after her mother died on Feb. 11. 

Another source says that they know he needs to be there for Bobbi. We told you that the funeral is said to be just for family and close friends and will be held at New Hope Baptist Church in Newark, NJ., at noon on Saturday.

Whitney and Bobby met in 1992 and were married for 15 years before divorcing in 2007.

Put yourself on Bobbi Kristina, if you grow up raised by your mother, your mum was everything for you” caring, loving, living with you “you may name the rest.Your father has never shown care for you, he is even married with another woman and having children everywhere, knowing even his social life and learning your mum down fall was when she got married to your Dad.Who knows the reasons Why this young girl was so intimate with her mum and never talk nothing about her Dad.She leave the nightmare.The death of her mum may be the beginning of the tragedy between Bobbi Kristina and Bobbi Brown.Know that it was Bobbi Kristina Who even ask mum(Whitney ) to divorce the father (Bobbi brown) at the age of 13years.the better Bobbi doesn’t attain the funeral the better for him. final respect will not get her up.He should not go to act another film in his life

I hope everyone concerned will put their differences aside during this vey sad time, I hope Bobby Brown is allowed to attend his ex wife’s funeral. Bobby Brown was and still a member of a very successful pop group, I would hope he wouldn’t use anyone for money, he has had his own successes on a smaller scale. I think every person is responsible for the decisions they make, shouldn’t anyone be blamed for someone self-destructing from their own weaknesses. Whitney first of all was human even though she was a super star. I rooted for her until the day she died!!! I hope she is at peace and I hope her daughter the best possible life! I am sure that poor young lady will fall victim to a media-circus for some time to come…she will need a strong resolve herself and a flawless support system!!! Bless all of you!!!

This happens all the time in black families. Go to a black funeral there’s bound to be some drama. Someone is going to start shooting, shouting, cussing, even fight inside the church. I have rarely gone to a black funeral where it was ran smoothly. U know, remembering the diseased. It’s always some old wombs that open up between family members that have grudges against each other. Rather be deployed to Afghan that to be dealin’ wit that bullshyt. Feel bad for all the family members that have to go through the family drama. Word of advice…if you rich, black, and successful…don’t get married. This could have been avoided.

Are you serious?? You can’t be…
Were you there through the physical and emotional abuse.. Do you know something else that the public doesn’t? They have a right as a family to decide whatever they want… You don’t know what kind of relationship he and Bobbi Kristina had.. Just because he provided a sperm doesn’t make him a father! Bobbi Christina was exceptionally close to her Mom.. Nowhere have I read that she was close to her Dad! Do you think Whitney’s family made a decision about his non appearance, without Bobbi Kristina’s input! Remember she is 19 years old, and her surviving air.. legally the only person who can make decision regarding her mother. The decisions lie with Bobby Kristina. She is the only one to say who attends and who don’t. Did you forget that??? Perhaps just maybe.. This was her choice, and the family agreed!

Bobby should be there for his daughter. The Houston family need to put there differences aside. The Houston’s have to know the true word of the god.

Maybe Bobbi will need him but I bet that Bobby Brown will find a way to take advantage of his daughter if the opportunity presents itself, This Girl has to be devastated over her Mothers death.. You can say what ever you want about Whitney being so out of control with the drugs but she sure did tie up a lot of her loose ends.
Divorce Bobby Brown *
Win Court case against Step Mom *
Finish Making Sparkle *
Get her Baby raised *
Whitney was a Soldier Girl – She said that it was good to know that she could and did make it without Bobby Brown – I believe that Whitney found her strength to get herself and Bobbi Kristina away from all of that chaos and I believe that she wanted the best for her Baby, she really did show that Bobbi Kristina was her everything – and I feel like We owe it to Whitney to try to protect her Baby Girl in her absence.. I LOVE YOU WHITNEY – AND we WILL ALL LOOK OUT FOR YOUR BABY GIRL.. RIP

I agree he will try to get money out of his daughter I believe he (aint) built like that and he is looked at in the media based on his behavior as being sneaky.

PLEASE STOP MAKING BOBBY BROWN INTO THIS MONSTER OF A PERSON!!!! I DONT THINK HE TREATED WHITNEY IN SUCH A HORRIBLE WAY… TRUE ENOUGH THEY HAD A DISFUNCTIONABLE RELATIONSHIP BUT THEY WERE BOTH GROWN ADULTS AND MADE THE BAD CHOICES TOGETHER SO IT DOES NOT MATTER WHO INTRODUCED WHO TO THE LIFE STYLE. WHO DID WHAT FIRST THE FACT IS THEY BOTH DID IT AND DID IT MORE THAN A DECADE SO STOP THE FINGER POINTING AND JUST PREY FOR A MUCH BETTER FUTURE FOR BOBBI CHRIS.. LETS TAKE IT FROM THIS POINT ON I BELIEVE THATS WHAT WHITNEY WOULD WANT… WE LOVE YOU BROWN AND HOUSTON FAMILY WITH ALL OUR HEARTS……REST IN PEACE OUR SINGING ANGLE

I agree with you. No matter what troubles they had together they BOTH made their decisions to do drugs. He should be there for Bobbi Kristina. It is probably very easy for her family to blame HIM for her drug addiction but she made those choices on her own.

This is truely a sad time for all of us to deal with! i am so heavey hearted to see what is going on concerning Mr. Bobby Brown is being treated about attending the service of his ex. wife Mrs. WHITNEY HOUSTON BROWN… I CANT SEE HOW GOD FEARING PEOPLE WHO LOVES THE LORD WITH ALL THEIR HEART CAN ACT IN SUCH A MANNER. WHATEVER THE THE REASONS FOR THE BAD BLOOD ,THIS IS NOT THE TIME TO HOLD FIRM TO THEIR FEELINGS.. GOD SAYS FORGIVENESS IS THE MOST IMPORTANT THING, NOBODY IS ASKING TO FORGET WHY THE BAD BLOOD BUT THERE SHOULD NOT BE ANY SIGNS OF IT WHILE PUTTING HER TO REST.HE SHOULD BE ABLE TO BE BY HIS DAUGHTERS SIDE AND BE ABLE TO MOURN HIS EX WIFE WITHOUT ANY DRAMA GOING ON . THERE IS PLENTY OF TIME FOR THE MEDIAS BS.THE ONE THING WE ALL KNOW IS THAT WHITNEY TRUELY LOVED BOBBY BROWN AND BOBBY BROWN ALSO LOVED HER UNMEASURABLE TRUE CHIRSTANS DO NOT ACT IN SUCH A MANNER.. THEY DO NOT JUDGE LESS THEY BE JUDGED,. AND TO WORRY ABOUT WHO GETS THE MONEY IS ALSO SOMETHING THAT SHOULD HAVE WAITED UNTIL THE END OF SENDING WHITNEY OFF TO BE WITH OUR FATHER….I HOPE THAT BOBBY AND BOBBY CHRIS CAN HAVE THE RELATIONSHIP A FATHER AND DAUGHTER ARE MENT TO HAVE BECAUSE THEY BOTH LOVE ONE ANOTHER WITHOUT MEASURE. SO MAY GOD BLESS THEIR RELATIONSHIP AND KEEP THEM BOTH IN THE COMFORT OF HIS ARMS….. I LOVE YOU WHITNEY,BOBBY AND BOBBY CHRIS!!!!!!!
