Whitney's ex not welcome at funeral

2012-02-15 12:43
Los Angeles - Bobbi Brown, the late singer Whitney Houston's ex-husband, is very disappointed because several family members warned him not to attend her funeral, reports TMZ.

People close to the Houston family reportedly warned Bobby not to even consider attending Houston's funeral because the family doesn't like him.

Bobby has still not officially heard from the family about whether he could attend the funeral or not.

According to sources Brown wants to attend the funeral to support his daughter, Bobbi Kristina, but he has not decided what he will do yet.

    The Houston family is right, I woudnt allow him either, he is the cause for all this!!!!

      Kobus - 2012-02-15 13:10

      Agree with you Mkhuseli, think she would have been much better off without him and feel that he is partly to blame (if not mostly) for her drug addiction.

      Silvana - 2012-02-15 13:14

      I agree to a certain extent, but remember that as humans we can make choices. She chose the drug route. Still tragic that such an extrmely talented singer had to go that way.

      Mkhuseli and Kobus, what a load of rubbish! You can lead a horse to water but you can't make it drink! NO-ONE must try and tell me that Whitney never tried drugs before she met Bobbi! She was an adult who made adult choices to do what she did, knowing that it could kill her, knowing that it would leave her young daughter without a mother. She was a selfish, indulgent brat and now the Houston family are in denial. You can't make an angel out of someone who danced with devil....fullstop!

      Rubbish, we talking about an adult who can diffrentiate between black & white.

  • miguel.sebastian2 - 2012-02-15 13:28

    People dont realise that Whitney experimented with drugs way before she met Bobbie. "Dont be cruel" people...haha

  • wnkambule - 2012-02-15 13:40

    People may forgive you for what you did, but will never forget how you made them feel!

      rbczovczov - 2012-02-15 18:10

      The question is whether Whitney would have wanted him to attend her funeral. What family members think is irrelevant because relationships are between two people. At one point they meant the world to each other.

  • david.lebethe - 2012-02-15 14:01

    Bit irresponsible on the part of the family as it has Bobbi's tendencies within its own midst - Kathrina has already shown the same temperament as the father (and who knows, she maybe sampling with Nyaope aleady), who like the mother, were known drug addicts and were her first role models. So, what solution would it make to keep the father away from few hours activity when the family has big challenge (in Kathrina) to contend with?

  • bkaridza - 2012-02-15 14:03

    It is a sad scenario and very unfortunate that Boby may not be allowed to support his daughter. Yes that Boby had Houston into drugs is true but it needs to be understood that she was an adult woman who could make a decision of her own and the Houstons needed to fight Boby while she was alive not now at least, it is a time of mourning and everybody has lost even those that hated the singer have equaly lost

    Why do good girls always choose to be with bad guys? Even now, good girls from good families are throwing their lives away by wanting boyfriends who are drug addicts, promiscuous, criminal, arrogant, heavy drinkers, reckless, etc. In the past, kids would allow their parents to assist them in choosing a spouse, trusting in their wisdom and experience. And in most cases, it was a good decision and the marriage would last. Sad.

  • Christina - 2012-02-15 15:01

    Bobby stikes me as a caring father, he only wants to support his daughter, he may have introduced Whitney to drugs, but they share a daughter for heavens sake, they cant change that. they must just allow him to burry his ex-wife and stop with this nonsense.

  • maniza.ahoua - 2012-02-15 15:10

    how dare he can think he can attend the funeral after what he has done to the woman, there will be no dope, I pray to God that He save this little gal from him

  • Lauren - 2012-02-15 15:16

    Oh it is always easy to blame someone else! She should have taken responsibility for herself and her actions!! Possibly even thought about her daughter, but just like Amy, its easy to blame someone else than accept that we as humans are able to say yes or no!! Celebrities should be banned from having children as most of them cannot cope with leading their own lives, never mind caring for a child!!

      Brett - 2012-02-15 15:25

      Celebrities should be banned in general.

  • narieman.johnstone - 2012-02-15 15:28

    you can lead someone to the crack pipe but it's their choice to smoke it. blaming him won't bring whitney back

  • sh.fish1 - 2012-02-15 15:29

    at least they should let him attend, the good times shared are deeply treasured as they will always remain dear....shame

  • Avuyile - 2012-02-15 15:38

    Bobby did not put a gun against whitneys head nd forced her to snort that stuff up her nose.He family needs to get over themselves and think about whitneys daughter who will need her father there.I dnt care if they were divorced the time she passed they were married for many many years and frankly he deserves to be there.

  • gregory.f.dean - 2012-02-15 16:00

    He should take/accept responsibility for his part leading to her early death - a shining star that dimmed far too early

  • Dominique - 2012-02-15 16:21

    People get your facts straight. Whitney was on drugs way before she met bobby. Go do some research.

  • Alta - 2012-02-15 16:34

    Of course he did not force her to use the drugs, and I would think that the family will admit to that as well. Whitney chose her live. But nobody can deny who and what this man is. Her mother has lost her daughter, therefore I can understand why her family does not want the man there. Most parents will react the same way.

  • magomarele - 2012-02-15 17:07

    It's not like Whitney didn't know who Bobbie Brown was. She plunged head-first knowing that Bobbie was a bad boy and she liked him like that.

  • Thokzane - 2012-02-15 17:15

    Why blame Bobby for Whitney's downfall??? She was the OLDER Woman chasing after young guys (RJ=31, Whitney=48) its disgusting the life that she chose for herself, so now everyone blames Bobby for her sense of immaturity...it should be a lesson for the Sugar Momies like whitney where they could end up if hanging around the youngster out of your generation.

  • Tanya - 2012-02-15 17:34

    How grateful that I am not a celebrity, nor related to one. I wouldn't want the whole world to scrutinize every detail of my death/funeral even more so that of the ones I love. Millions of people die everyday in war zones and from hunger and suffering, yet no-one raises an eyebrow. How sad.

  • hilton.baartman - 2012-02-15 17:56

    How can Bobbi be blamed for the choices of Whitney? Take it from me, a recovered drug addict that nobody makes the choice for you. YOU DO! Let's call a spade a spade. Whitney was flirting with drugs before she met Bobbi anyway. She just couldn't beat the demon. And my comment in no way means I don't respect Whitney because I do, she tried to overcome it.

  • William - 2012-02-15 18:33

    I agee with the Family. He was the prick that pushed her into the drug scene!!!! REST IN PEACE WHITNEY.....

  • Bismakos - 2012-02-15 19:27

    whitney was no kid,she bought tha drugs with her own money and will,y blame tha man,maybe she wasn't brought up rite...blame tha parents if there is any one 2 blame...tha hell man.

  • Gerda - 2012-02-15 23:11

    There is not such thing as last respect if you could not even give respect whilst the person was still alive.

  • brionyl.french - 2012-02-16 05:10

    I do not believe that anyone should be banned from saying farewell to someone who has touched your heart. He is Whitneys childs father and he has the right to say goodbye to his ex wife. Who cares what anyone thinks... Its about making peace

  • colleen.figg - 2012-02-16 07:24

    @Sean1877 what nonsense "he put her there" - we all make our own choices.

  • Brent - 2012-02-16 08:15

    maybe he wants to beat her one last time?

  • Susan - 2012-02-16 08:46

    About time that bond is broken!!!

  • Rebaone - 2012-02-16 10:07

    Ag shame!Are they blaming him? Whitney was an adult who was able to make her own decisions so she chose to do what she did and there is no one to blame but her.

  • Fikile - 2012-02-16 11:13

    I agree with you 100%,Alicia! They found each other in the absence of family. It is very ludicrous to wanna deny him a chance to pay respect to her and support his daughter. I truly feel it is extremely selfish of Whitney's fam.

  • nthabiseng.p.mohlabi - 2012-02-16 11:49

    The damage is already done, the is nothing they can do about..I think Bobbi will love to see his father there.

  • Shirley - 2012-02-16 12:12

    I realy dont understand their outrage at Brown. Yes he is/was a user-addict etc and they had a stormy marriage etc but bottom line is she was a GROWN woman and he never held a gun against her head to use. Its time "stars" take responsibility for their own choices in life and when things go wrong others are not made into scapegoats! Brown shares a daughter with Whitney and she will want the comfort of him! Grow up and own up.

  • Mable - 2012-02-17 09:03

    I really hope this is all lies, He was her husband and his daughter needs him. Let he who is without sin cast the first stone.
