Atlanta, GA — This past weekend, during Bobbi Kristina’s funeral, her aunt, Leolah Brown (the sister of Bobby Brown) was escorted out by security when she interrupted the eulogy speech that was being given by Pat Houston, the sister-in-law and former manager for the late Whitney Houston.
Mad about the invitations
Brown also expressed frustrations over the invitations, which apparently encouraged attendees not to send flowers, but to contribute instead to a foundation run by Houston.
How did this start in the first place?
The Brown/ Houston family feud seemed to have started back in 2012 when Bobbi Kristina’s mother, the later singer Whitney Houston, was found dead in a bathtub after an apparent overdose in her Beverly Hills Hotel. The Houston family reportedly blamed her husband, singer Bobby Brown, for introducing her to drugs. Of course, Brown denied the accustations.
But this past year, Bobbi Kristina, the couple’s 22-year daughter, was also found unconscious in a bathtub in her Atlanta area home and remained in a coma for months before she also died. This seemed to re-ignite the family feud with finger-pointing, and also involved Bobbi Kristina’s boyfriend Nick Gordon, who the family suspects had something to do with her death. Gordon, however, was not in attendance at the funeral.
Tyler Perry attended the funeral
The funeral, held at St. James United Methodist Church in Alpharetta, Georgia, was, however, attended by hundreds of family members and friends, including both the Houston and Brown families. Other notables that attended included Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed, singer Monica and actor Michael Jai White. Filmmaker Tyler Perry was also reportedly in attendance.
