So awful that now this has to over-shadow an already heartbreaking day.
Although it's being reported that Bobby Brown left Whitney Houston's funeral after fifteen minutes because he refused to attend without his entourage of nine people, the late singer's ex-husband has now released a statement through his representative, which details an entirely different account of events.
“My children and I were invited to the funeral of my ex-wife Whitney Houston. We were seated by security and then subsequently asked to move on three separate occasions. 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.”
Not entirely sure what to believe at this point, but regardless, whatever prompted this turn of events, it's a real shame.
We will now return our focus to honoring Whitney's memory, and sending positive thoughts and prayers to everyone out there grieving over this tragedy.
May she R.I.P.
