Saturday Whitney Houston was remembered with a beautiful celebration that brought joy, comfort and a bit of controversy regarding Whitney’s ex-husband, Bobby Brown.
CNN reported that Bobby Brown along with his other children and family members and were not able to be accommodated because of the size of his entourage. After being asked several times by security to move, Bobby and his family exited the funeral.
Here he released a statement for the record on what actually happened and why he left:
“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.”
