So heartbreaking. At Bobbi Kristina’s burial, her father Bobby Brown was unable to keep it together, HollywoodLife has learned EXCLUSIVELY. In fact, other guests were even worried about him.
Bobbi Kristina Brown was laid to rest on Aug. 3 in Newark, New Jersey, and her father, Bobby Brown, 46, was inconsolable. In fact, Bobby was so upset that he was nearly incoherent, according to Mark Behar, a former bodyguard for Bobby’s late ex-wife, Whitney Houston, who was at both the funeral and the burial. Bobbi tragically passed away on July 26, at the way too young age of 22. Her death followed an almost 7-month period which she spent in a coma, and when it was finally time to say goodbye, her dad Bobby was so out of it that he was talking to himself, Mark revealed to HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY.
“Bobby is obviously and understandably struggling,” Mark told us EXCLUSIVELY. “He seemed really out of it and was mumbling to himself and walking around like he was lost. Many of the guests were even concerned about him. It was a very somber mood today.” We can only imagine how difficult this is for Bobby, who fathered Bobbi K with Whitney, whom Bobbi was buried alongside at the Westfield Cemetery.
Bobby wasn’t the only one who was completely undone by the burial proceedings. “At least three or four of Bobbi Kristina’s family members were so distraught and emotional, they got light headed and almost fainted– having to be taken care of by others,” Mark added. “Almost everyone was crying their eyes out throughout the entire ceremony. Several fans had been camped out since yesterday, and were holding up signs and brought floral arrangements and gifts like stuffed animals.”
Bobbi Kristina was clearly adored by tons of people around the world, and while Bobby copes with this massive loss, we hope he can find some comfort in that. We’re sending Bobby, and the rest of Bobbi Kristina’s friends, family and loved ones our thoughts and prayers during this treacherous time.
