According to TMZ, Bobby Brown showed up to New Hope Baptist Church with an entourage of nine people. He was only allowed to bring two people with him. Bobby became upset when he found out his party was not allowed inside.
Our sources say Bobby wanted to sit with his daughter, Bobbi Kristina, but Whitney’s family was not having it.
We’re told Rev. Jesse Jackson tried to smooth things over … but to no avail.
Rev. Al Sharpton tweeted, “I am at Whitney’s funeral. I spoke with Bobby Brown trying to calm him down and not distract from the services. Today is about Whitney!”
Rev. Jesse Jackson was just interviewed on CNN and he says that the family told Bobby he was unable to sit with the family inside the church. Bobby became upset and that’s why he left.
Rev. Al Sharpton was interviewed with CNN and he says “Bobby only showed love and respect for Whitney and his daughter.”
Bobby Brown released a statement explaining why he left his ex-wife’s funeral service saying:
“I fail to understand why security treated my family this way and continue to ask us and no one else to move. Security then prevented me from attempting to see my daughter Bobbi-Kristina. In light of the events, I gave a kiss to the casket of my ex-wife and departed as I refused to create a scene. My children are completely distraught over the events. This was a day to honor Whitney. I doubt Whitney would have wanted this to occur. I will continue to pay my respects to my ex-wife the best way I know how.”
