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.

He says:

“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.”

Wow.

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.

    Does he have 9 Kids?



  2. 2

    I believe Bobby,
    as I said before if AL Sharpten is there, you know it's a circus



  3. 3

    LIAR ! You fed her drugs ! R.I.P., Whitney !



  4. 4

    And lived off all her money !



  5. 5

    Your pedo-obsession with MattyB gets creepier every day.



  6. 6

    Murderer !

    Be-atch-Bobby didn't 'feed' Whitney drugs. She was using them (illegal and legal) years before she ever met Bobby. Yes, during their marriage they didn't 'help' each other–but Bobby has been clean for many years and remarried….Whitney was not. Per HER choice. No one forced any drugs down her throat-and that includes the booze she drank. She was an amazing performer and will be missed-but quit blaming Bobby. Too bad the goons wouldn't allow him to see his daughter. How sad is that??? Whitney made her bed and slept in it–no one else.



  8. 8

    he was not a murderer…he forced nothing on her…she made her own bed. its sad to lose someone like this, but it is not tragic. he's not the best person, but she made her own choices, before and after she knew him. He should not have been treated like this.



  9. 9

    i think he was not treated nicely they should have treated him better he lived with Whitney for 17 years they have a child together, Whitney had started taking drugs before meeting Bobbi they have been divorced for some years now and he is clean from drugs for six years. Whitney was a grown up she made bad choices they should not put all the blame on Bobbi they were not even together when she died they both moved on with their lives though they have been meeting having dinners together for the seek of their daughter. I still think their daughter has a right to have contact with his father there is no reason for them to block him from seeing his daughter, Whitney never stopped Bobbi from seeing his daughter so why should they cut him off from his daughter her raised for 15 years.

    Know what? The whole darn bunch are broken. Whitney, for ending up a drug addict whose a mother and was an entertainer, Bobby, who cares, her family and all the supposed friends, godmothers etc. who stood by and now are wailing in the isles. They're nothing but a bunch of losers. The press seems to think we care about what they feel or think.



  11. 11

    There is reason why you are an EX Bobby….she didn't want you in her life…and I doubt she wanted you at her funeral either.



  12. 12

    Ugh, you people have it wrong. Bobby introduced her to the hardcore drugs, such as cocaine. She has only taken the 'mild' ones before (pot etc). It's no coincedence that as soon as she got married to this jerk, she went downhill. However, she should have left him much sooner than she did. Their relationship was VERY selfish, considering they had a young daughter.



  13. 13

    Gee I never knew a washed up has been needs a 9 person entourage, the fact is they had 3 seats reserved for him, I suspect he and two of children. I watched an interview where Whitney said after he SPIT on her, it was Bobbi that said leave him. Bobby Brown is nothing but a street punk that got lucky 25 years ago. Whats crazy is I hope Chris Brown watched this circus because IF he does not change his ways, he will be the next Bobby Brown.



  14. 14

    He was not only a horrible husband, he is her ex-husband. Attending the funeral and kissing the casket ought to suffice. One is lucky to even attend and leave when one is the ex- and has a past history of so much conflict and drug abuse with the deceased. For no other reason than decorum and respect for all those who did not have such a sick, dysfunctional relationship with the deceased, he ought to be content to have simply made an appearance and left one his own. Think of Whitney's mother in this case. Some EX husband drug gangsta of an EX son-in-law whom MANY could cite as a contributing factor in Whitney's demise is sitting there? He can comfort his daughter afterwards and for the rest of her life. But WILL be be there for Bobbi Christina? And in a GOOD way? He ought to be more aware of his negative impact on the Whitney Houston legacy and her demise rather than worry about where he was seated at the chicken or fish wedding reception (so to speak).



  15. 15

    He killed her, Why would they let him to the funeral. Too disgusting for words. I hope I can hold down the vomit when all the media outlets start paying him for his stories and that "my Life with Whitney" book that I am sure is coming.



  16. 16

    This post now already changed your first post, and we are still not sure what happened AND WHAT IS TRUE which is exactly why you should not post assumptions in the first place . Sick of this crap. Look at the comments you have created that are full of assumptions and half truths and opinions based on things that may not even be true due to your post. HOW THE FUCK DO YOU SLEEP AT NIGHT?

    yes Kristina should stay away from this Monster..Bobby had nothing better to do to give a live concert on the day whitney died,this shows me how much respect he had for her ;) this crackhead should burn in hell!!! R.I.P Whitney…… I know one thing,I never whould support(give) my wife with drugs, he destroyed whitney and his own daughter!!!

    I have NOOOO respect for such an Drug Fucker.



  18. 18

    Some of you dumb asses have no idea what you are talking about. Whitney has 2 brothers, both of whom are addicts. Dionne Warwick was a druggie. Dionne's sister died because of drugs. Whitney dated addicts such as Darryl Strawberry before Bobby. She has admitted to using cocaine before Bobby. While divorced in 2007, they had spent time together including vacations with Bobby, Whitney, and Bobbi Kristina since the divorce. Bobbi was living with Whitney and she and her mother partied together. Whitney was using drugs and drinking alcohol with the knowledge of her family. They said nothing why? Bobby's mother died last January and his dad died in December. Whitney not only went to the funerals, but sang 2 songs at his mother's funeral. Bobbi Kristina is her closest living relative. Not her mother or cousins like Dionne. They should not be making the decisions. They are keeping close reins so as to control the money.



  19. 19

    He abused her and cheated on her. And here he is at the funeral causing drama. I don't blame the family. He's lucky he even got in the door as far as I'm concerned. I wouldn't have been that nice. He should have sat down not caused problems. Who the hell brings 9 people with them to attend a funeral that is by invite only?



  20. 20

    UNFORTUNETLY I HATE TO SAY BUT I BLAME HIM FOR INTRODUCING HER TO DRUGS AND DOING DRUGS WITH HER AND RUINING HER CAREER which broke her heart even more than what he did…
    He really didn't deserve to be there today…. it was a celebration of her
    I think he was always jealous of her fame…



  21. 21

    The only comment I will make is a simple one. Bobby Brown showed the world what his relationship with his daughter is like. When he found out about the death of his ex-wife what did he do? He went ahead with his concert. Any normal, caring parent would drop everything to be with there child and nothing would stop me not even my ex's family. Just saying……………….



  22. 22

    Whiney fuck! The family invited you out of CLASS, but asked that you not even show up but you did. I just finished rewatching the interview Oprah did with Whitney in 09.. she had NOTHING good to say about you or your cheating ass! She divorced you because she couldnt stand you anymore punk! She wouldnt of wanted you there!



  23. 23

    Whatever feelings Whitney's mother had towards Bobby were probably justified. Yes, Whitney was an adult and made her own decisions, but he always seemed resentful that his career never came anywhere near being as successful as hers. He hated that she had the spotlight and the proof was in his actions today.

    This day was about Whitney! Could the woman at least have her funeral? Who gives a shit where you sit?! Stand if you have to! I have been to funerals where I have had to stand up because it was crowded or in a small venue. It's about paying you respects, not griping about where you sit! Bobby showed his true colors today and any doubts I had that he was a douche, were erased.



  24. 24

    Re: Be-Atch – The night that she was stoned off of her ass, Ray Jay was her man, not Bobby Brown…..such hypocrites..talking about God while being so un godly…



  25. 25

    The classy thing to do would have been to sit quietly down and remember Whitney…not stomp off in a huff because things didn't go his way. What a selfish twat!!



  26. 26

    Bobby knew how many people he could bring with him. He just figured since he's Bobby he can do whatever he wants. This day was supposed to be about Whitney and remembering her for those that loved her. Now all you hear about is her past with drugs and her ex trying to make the day about himself. Just makes me sick. I watched the entire service and it was a beautiful tribute to Whitney. Bobby should have sucked it up, followed the rules and supported his child in this her greatest time of need.



  27. 27

    I just wish they could have banned him from Whitney's life period. He sucked off of her fame for years. RIP Whitney



  28. 28

    WHITNEY WOULD HAVE WANTED BOBBY THERE WITH BOBBY KRISTINA - THE FAMILY WERE WRONG TO NOT ACCOMODATE HIM & HIS OTHER CHILDREN OUT OF GROUNDLESS SPITE & ALTERIOR MOTIVE. WHITNEY ALSO WOULD HAVE LOVED A STATE FUNERAL WHICH HER TALENT DESERVED & THE WORLD DESERVED. BUT AS USUAL WHEN A COVER UP IS IN MOTION - THE PERPITRATORS CLOSE RANK. I ONLY HOPE BOBBI KRISTINA SEES THIS & KEEPS HER BOND WITH HER FATHER BOBBY BROWN WHO IS THE ONLY ONE NEXT TO CISSE DION & ARETHA WHO REALLY LOVES HER.



  29. 29

    I BELIEVE WHITNEY WAS MURDERED. & WHO EVER WAS IN HER ROOM AT THE TIME OF DEATH KNOWS IT TOO & PROBABLY PLAYED A PART IN IT. SINCE WHEN IS A BODY ALLOWED TO BE BURIED WHEN THE CAUSE OF DEATH IS STILL UNKNOWN ? & SINCE WHEN IS THE PLACE OF DEATH RE RENTED BEFORE THE ONGOING INVESTIGATION AS REACHED ITS CONCLUSION ? THIS ONLY HAPPENS WHEN THERES A COVER UP IN MOTION. & THE PERPITRATORS ARE USUALLY THE ONES SEEKING TO SECURE THE MONEY.



  30. 30

    I loved Whitney and dislike Bobby… BUT what frickin' annoys me is when the hell will these people start blaming the person? at what age? she was 48! 48! Was she NOT old enough to make her own decisions? What age do you have to be to start taking responsibility for yourself? WHEN do you start blaming the do'er?… She was filthy rich, she could afford the best of psychiatrists, shrinks and doctors. THE BEST… They divorced in 2007, nearly 5 years ago… could she not TRY to get better for the sake of her teenage daughter? why was she still partying like a teenager & drinking till she dropped?… WHEN? … the day she died she was acting erratically and her DAUGHTER had to drag her to her hotel room!! … when do you stop blaming the people around the person and start blaming the actual person? AT WHAT AGE?… the police should have arrested her like they would do with any NORMAL civilian when they found her with possession of drugs weeks earlier…. The thing with celebrities is that they do not suffer the same punishments as normal people… they don't pay the consequences…. JAIL would have saved her!



  31. 31

    PS:: ALL HER FAMILY ARE DRUGGIES…. her 2 brothers… Dionne Warwick was a druggie. Dionne's sister died because of drugs. Whitney dated addicts such as Darryl Strawberry before Bobby. She has admitted to using cocaine before Bobby



  32. 32

    god, he's one creepy looking fucker.



  33. 33

    Bobby Brown, a low life piece of scum period! You abused her during your marriage. And lets face facts Bobby…you were Mr. Houston! You cheated on your wife and used her credit cards to pay for those dinners and buy your skanks, sluts and ho's little gifts. Thats not something a REAL MAN would do! So security at the funeral asked you to move a few times…big deal if you truly wanted to pay respsects to Whitney you would have graciously moved and let it go! As for security stopping you from getting anywhere near Bobbi Kristina….thank GOD! She may be 18 and have the right to make up her own mind…but she saw the crap you put her mother thru, and so did the Houston family. They are protecting her when she needs to be protected especially from broke ass father who would take the opportunity to get in good so he gets a nice pay off somewhere down the road! Be glad I wasn't security I would have made you pay your respects from the gutter outside the church…cause the gutter is where you belong you has been!

    Re: zackie p – They do not wait until toxicologfy results are back. The medical examiner has done a complete autopsy so the body can be buried. She was not murdered. Her death was entirely her own fault. She had been killing herself with drugs and booze for years and was finally successful. She was a good singer, I will agree to that, but she was more drug and booze attic in the last several years. Peopleshould stop blaming Bobby Brown. Whitney did nothing she did not want to do. No one forced the drugs on her. She did it all by herself. Bobby Brown should have been given as many seats as he needed at the funeral. He was her husband and is the father of Bobbi Kristina. Cissy and her sons are only keeping him away because they want the $$$ that Bobbi Kristina will most likely inherit. No one had ever heard of Cissy Houston before Whitney became famous. The entire funeral was an over-the-top and ridiculous event. Tacky to the extreme. Gold casket. Pretend Nurse. Too many speakers and singers. Coordinated escorts for Cissy. Cissy's huge fur coat. Holding the body overnight in a cemetery with bodyguards overnight. The funeral was not how a Baptist funeral is done. It was horrible. And whoever said she deserved a State funeral is nuts. State funerals are not for singers. Even good singers. Christ Christie should not have lowered the flag to half-staff in NJ. That is not done for singers either. Like I said before, it was a tacky, tawdry, over-the-top mess.



  35. 35

    He fed her hard drugs !



  36. 36

    Let's see how he lives his life now, because I don't know if I have ever seen him live his life well unless he defines well as drugs, drunk etc. OK let's watch. Also I hope its not true that his daugher has a drug problem also. OK Bobbie Brown prove me wrong I would love it. I and the world will be watching.



  37. 37

    There is no doubt Bobby Brown and his children should have been at Whitney's funeral
    and he wasnt denied that..But Bobby arrived late, we dont know why he was late,
    but he should have stayed in that church until the funeral was over. When I saw the boy that was with Bobby crying outside it broke my heart. That young boy loved Whitney you could see that… WHATEVER HAPPENED BE IT BOBBY OR WHITNEY the ash and fire is falling all over their children. Bobby has lost his mother father and Whitney in a year
    there's ALOT OF pain here MY PRAYERS go out to the children, to Bobby, & of course
    Mrs Cissy Houston. Its time to turn over a new leaf Bobby..I am a fan like everybody else
    but i feel like I have lost a family member. I've been crying all week its so unbelieveable
    to me. I thought the Funeral was lovely the speakers and singers everyone was lovely
    Of the flag being brought to half staff, if it was done for other entertainers then WHATS THE PROBLEM…..



  38. 38

    l am not aa Bobby fan , but the Houston family are being awfully selfish and laying blame onto him , fact is Whitney was using drugs well before Bobby brown and the truth is Bobby used to just be a pot smoker and heavy drinker Whitney introduced him to the heavier drugs .Bobby has been clean for years he got his shit together Whitney did not . So stop blaming him for her demise.
    Whitney and Bobby where still friends and they were her step children/family in fact whitney sang at Bobby's mothers funeral after they where divorced she still cared for the Brown family.

    He had every right to be near his daughter or to at least go to her and comfort her.Houston family where totally out of line and l feel they are blaming Bobby when really Whitney did it to herself no disrepect meant



  39. 39

    His Entourage????Her step siblings are not an Entourage, and the adult children probably knew Whitney as well..



  40. 40

    Re: Be-Atch – LOL…well she was out aprtying with Ray jay, not Bobby Brown…so….I'd say you're calling out the wrong guy.



  41. 41

    This funeral initially had enough interesting characters in attendance to become a three ring circus, but after watching live coverage of the ceremony which was televised I actually think I believe Bobby's story this time. The media of course made it out to be more scandelous than it actually looked like, but I think we should throw Bobby a bone at this point. His past with Whitney was dramatic yes, but her unexpected death cannot be blamed solely on his influence. In regards to reports of causing a "scene" at the funeral, I think he pulled a mature move for once by paying respects and leaving the site before it escalated. Do you think security had an agenda against Brown from the beginning?
