Bobby Brown Speaks, Breaks Down In Tears At Concert

| Filed under: Bobby BrownWhitney HoustonSad Sad


Last night, Bobby Brown performed with New Edition at the Landers Center in Southaven, Miss. just hours after hearing that his ex-wife Whitney Houston had passed away.

Crying on stage at several moments during the show, Bobby had to stop to compose himself during a heartfelt performance of his hit Tenderoni.

He told the crowd:

"First of all, I want to tell you that I love you all. Second, I would like to say, I love you, Whitney. The hardest thing for me to do is to come on this stage."

A concertgoer said:

"Bobby asked us to pray for his daughter and to pray for him. When he cried, I could feel the pain he was suffering, because he could not be with his daughter tonight, the time she needs him the most. I cried just watching Bobby speak."

Meanwhile, Bobby, who is said to be "beside himself with grief," has finally released a touching statement:

"I am deeply saddened at the passing of my ex-wife, Whitney Houston. At this time, we ask for privacy, especially for my daughter, Bobbi Kristina. I appreciate all of the condolences that have been directed towards my family and I at this most difficult time."

Our thoughts are with Bobbi Kristina and all of Whitney's family at this time.

    First M.I.A. now Whitney, Madonna must be furious.

    I saw pictures of the Clive David party and that whore Kartrashian was there with her fake boobs hanging out. What the F is she doing there? Talk about a bottom feeder.

    She'll probably have a special on E about how Whitney had told Kim to carry on for her!

    What a jerk for not canceling his part in the concert so that he could be with his daughter. The poor girl was left to grieve all by herself. No wonder she had to be rushed to the hospital!

    Can't believe he even went on stage, what a strange thing to do. I'm sure everyone involved would have understood if he cancelled. You would have thought his daughter would be more important.

    "there's no where i'd rather be tonight than right here". what a right fucker. his daughter's in the hotel where her mother died alone (while all of her mates are partying downstairs no less) and this asshole comes out with this crap. there are no words. just unfortunate.

    I won't criticize him for going on stage, caus ehe was probably in shock and denial. As they say… the show most go on.

    Re: suckitracistscum – Absolutely right!! He should have been with his daughter!!

    Didn't stop him from going onstage though did it??? He should have cancelled, and went to his daughter…THAT should have been his first priority.

    She might have been an adult who was able to make her own choices, but god damn you, Bobby Brown. You introduced her to some extremely destructive ones. He played a huge part in her drug addiction, and ultimately her death - and that is a fact. He says that he loves her, but this was never love. You do not put people you love in harm's way, you put them *out* of harm's way. His 'love' has contributed to the death of his ex-wife, and hurt their daughter immensely. Their daughter seems to be headed in the same direction, and I genuinly hope someone will help her before it's too late.

    Re: Another dam nickname – If they were estranged, you'd assume that Whitney's mom and aunt and Whitney's people would have the daughter under their wing while they sort things out.

    He didn't even acknowledge his love for Whitney FIRST… not a surprise i guess.
