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.
