The world was able to mourn the loss of Whitney Houston by watching a live broadcast of her memorial service in 2012 — will we be able to do the same for her daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown’s funeral? HollywoodLife.com has EXCLUSIVELY learned the answer.

Bobbi Kristina Brown fought for her life for 6 months in the public eye — the world monitored as she went from a medically induced coma to hospice care all the way to her last breath on July 26. Her mother, Whitey Houston, also passed away in the public eye and at the time, her family allowed her many admirers to watch her funeral services on a live broadcast. An insider just revealed to HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY what plans have been made for Bobbi’s upcoming funeral and service — find out if it will be broadcasted live like Whitney’s.


“Absolutely no plans on broadcasting the funeral. Just like the deathbed photo that has been shopped around, they don’t want to have anyone financially gain from her loss. The family doesn’t want anyone to make money from this tragedy and make this more of a spectacle than it already has become,” an insider shared with HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.

We also know about Bobbi’s burial plans.“All the preparations are underway to get Bobbi Kristina to New Jersey, where she will be buried next to her mom in Westfield Cemetery,” an insider told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “Some of Whitney’s bodyguards have flown into Atlanta to help transporting her body. They will have two ceremonies — one in Atlanta, where her friends and much of her family live, and then one when she’s buried.”

It was on January 31 that Bobbi was found unconscious in a bathtub. Soon after Bobbi was found, she was placed in a medically induced coma to fight for her life. It was months later, on June 24, that she was moved to hospice care after her condition continued to “deteriorate.”

The Houston family released the following statement in regards to her passing on July 26:

Bobbi Kristina Brown passed away Sunday, July, 26 2015, surrounded by her family. She is finally at peace in the arms of God. We want to again thank everyone for their tremendous amount of love and support during these last few months.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Bobbi’s family and anyone else mourning her death at this time.
