Whitney Houston's Attorney Clarifies How And Why Bobby Brown Left Her Funeral!!

Ahh… it's all making sense now!!

After hearing Bobby Brown left Whitney Houston's funeral because his entourage wasn't let in and then hearing his side of the story — that he left because security made him move three times — Whitney's attorney brings the most objective side of the story to light!!

According to the attorney, Bobby was assigned to sit with the family before the funeral. His children from other relationships were not to sit with the family in the first threw pews. Instead, they could sit with their uncle a few rows back.

Then, when they had all sat down, Bobby told the girls to come join him prompting security to act.

The statement reads:

We had a number of discussions prior to the service and a very clear understanding as to exactly what was supposed to take place. Bobby was always invited to sit with the family at the outset. This was a very full, packed congregation…and there literally wasn't a seat available. So this was not about anything other than practical space considerations.

When [he invited his children to his pew], security discreetly, politely, respectfully said, 'Bobby you're welcome to stay here but we need to ask the three children to go sit with their uncle given space limitations.' That was the deal and there shouldn't have been any problem at that point. But for whatever reason, he took offense at that.

For whatever reason he decided he just wanted to leave the service. So he got his three children, went up and kissed the casket, and they walked out of the service. It had to be a difficult time for him. None of us exercise our best judgment when we're under that kind of emotional strain. So I certainly don't stand in judgment of him.

So sad!! Such a shame!!

We guess we can see how Bobby may have interpreted the security's actions as offensive in the heat of the moment, but we still wish he would have complied with the original seating arrangements if everything in the attorney's statement is fact.

What do U think??

    watta fucktard…and an immature shit…
    he killed whitney…his fault, his drugs, his immaturity…watta fuckup

    I think it's BS that he was not able to sit w/ his kids. It's a power play from her family and humiliating to force your kids to sit a few rows back. it's a statement saying we will "allow" you but those kids are not a part of this family. They were throwing him a bone and at times like this we are sensitive, emotional and vulnerable. He needed his kids near by.

    So, why are the comments on for him, but not his daughter. What a joke. Taking drugs to cope, what a fucking idiot. People should stop enabling her by coddling her. For god sakes, millions of us have lost our mothers, but this brat is being treated like a princess and given carte blanche to do whatever the fuck she wants cuz people like you will keep sayi9ng "poor bobbi christina, it's not her fault". And for god sakes you dramatic fuck, quit saying how devestated she is. No shit, that bgoes without saying, youre so fucking dramatic

    And PS Who the fuck brings and entourage to a funeral. God damn, black folk are silly as fuck.

    Re: Karly Vega – Probably a power play, but one from him, too. He had a kid to sit with…Bobbi Kristina.



  5. 5

    Why does he look so much like a poor mans Martin Lawrence?

    Re: Esin Emko – Whitney killed herself. And back when they first got together, it was her, not him, who was into the hard stuff.

    That was their STEPMOTHER! They should have been include in the front row. I agree with Bobby. I would have sat with my children in a different row though. I wouldn't have left. He should have told the family that from the beginning. If there isn't room in the front row, I will sit with my children wherever you have room.



  8. 8

    I'm sorry, but he was supposed to be thinking of Bobbi Kristina, not himself and his ego. He just showed what a self centered jerk he is. But we already knew that.

    @EsinEMKO watta fucktard…and an immature shit
    all of T^ H^ I ^ S!

    Re: amItheonlyone – They were a few rows back because they were her former STEP CHILDREN. If there hadn't been limited seating, I would understand, but why should his kids take seats away from Whitney's immediate familys like HER MOTHER, DAUGHTER, BROTHERS, THEIR WIVES, AND HER NIECES AND NEPHEWS?! Should Cissy Houston have told her other grandchildren "Oh, you guys have to move, because Bobby brought his kids"? Please!

    Bottom line, he didn't want to be there in the first place if that's all it took for him to leave. If it was really about Bobbi Kristina, he would have stayed to comfort her, but he left because he didn't like where his other children were sitting?! This from a man who only has to be dragged into court every few months over child support. So basically, fuck how they eat during the rest of the year, but he wants to make sure they get priority seating at his ex wife's funeral!



  11. 11

    Can someone sterilize this fool, please? How many children does he have and how many different baby momma's? When addicts have children, it is downright SAD!



  12. 12

    Please explain what "legit kin" means.



  13. 13

    All you people just need to STFU. It's not your business or your decision to make. It's over, done, Whitney is dead. Let it go and be more respectful. You all come on here and post nonsense garbage with no proof or no reason.



  14. 14

    This statement doesn't change a thing. He's still a tool & acted like an entitled brat.



  15. 15

    Ok…sio whitnery si dead…so she no longer has an attorney…and the next question is was he actually at the funeral…If not then his comments are really moot.



  16. 16

    this wasn't about him, it was to pay respect to the deceased and he should have sat wherever in the whole place to do that. no priorities. i get it that he might not have been in the best state of mind but that is just inexcusable and disrespectful to whitney.



  17. 17

    He belonged w/their daughter. In ALL families, on occasion, a time will come when one child's needs will out weigh the others and need to be addressed at a particular moment, this was one of those times. Too bad for BK that one of her memories of her mother's funeral will be her father walking out over 'seating arrangements'. He should have swallowed his pride and done what was best for the child in need at the moment. jmo.

    Re: Meggie246524
    I wouldn't call grieving acting entitled or tool. Wow some of your comments I like but this is cruel and callous.



  19. 19

    what is offensive is that he disrespected the rules, he brought 8 more people than allowed and they still accomodated him. He is an overgrown baby and managed to get attention for himself at whitneys funeral. I guess he was jealous of her right to the grave. He went to his concert and stated he was bad ass bobby brown, sad for a man that age to still consider himself hardcore hood. your pathetic bobby but hey, Chris brown needs a mentor, call him.

    It must've killed you not to draw a crackpipe in his mouth.

    Re: hoochpit – About as silly as you are for not reading the article. Non of you were at the funeral, or know any of these people. You internet punk, you wouldnt say any of this except behind a keyboard

    Re: gwen01 – Are people reading? What 8 people. All I saw was 4 extra; his 3 kids and brother. And you knew Bobby and Whitney personally? This dude was #1 in the late 80's. His group New Edition is touring now, charging $85 for nosebleed seats. If he was a hanger on, why did she pick him?

    Re: KarrieBelle – You are speaking from a perspective of someone who doesn't like BB. Look, no one knows what went on except those 2. She claimed those kids as her own, they are close in age to BK, and they had every write to support her OVER nieces, such because they are her BLOOD siblings.
