The Houston and Brown families have completely different ideas of how they want to grieve Bobbi Kristina Brown’s death, which is making the funeral planning that much more difficult, an insider shared with HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
Although Bobbi Kristina Brown has passed away, the Houston family still believes her life should be celebrated, which includes a positive funeral that’s light on the tears. However, according to a HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVE source, the Brown family is totally against a “party-like” funeral — find out more about the tension brewing between the two families.
“The Houston family really wants Bobbi Kristina‘s funeral to be a big celebration of her life. They want it to have a party atmosphere, filled with laughs not tears. Unfortunately Bobby Brown doesn’t agree with this. He’s absolutely heartbroken and doesn’t like the idea of it being like her ‘Sweet 16’ party. He and the Houston family are really butting heads over who is running the show,” an insider told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
We know one thing for sure, though. Whatever kind of funeral is held, it won’t be broadcasted like her mom, Whitney Houston‘s was in 2012. “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,” a second source shared with us.
Bobbi, who just passed away on July 26, was found unresponsive, facedown in a bathtub at her home outside Atlanta on January 31. She was soon placed in a medically induced coma that lasted seven months and then on June 24, she was moved to hospice care after her condition continued to “deteriorate.”
Our thoughts and prayers remain with Bobbi’s entire family and anyone else suffering during this difficult time.
