But Trying to Perform Concert

2/11/2012 6:20 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Bobby Brown is distraught and in and out of crying fits
Bobby Brown is distraught and "in and out of crying fits" ... after getting the news that Whitney Houston is dead -- but his New Edition band mates are by his side trying to console him.

New Edition has a concert tonight in Mississippi -- and believe it or not sources close to the group tell TMZ ... not only will New Edition go on as scheduled, but as of now Bobby is also planning to perform.

We're told Bobby is going to try to get through the entire show.

Bobby and Whitney had an infamously tumultuous 15 year marriage.

We're told Bobby started the show by addressing the crowd, pointing to the sky, and saying, "I love you."

Hello, Whitney (R.I.P.) You are in HEAVEN now, you will be missed, I admired you, and loved you and your music, and movies. You were WONDERFUL, my heart and prayers will go out to Bobbi C. and family. It will be 2 yrs. on the 18th. my 26 yr. old son was murdered, and it's real hard for me.

So sad, Whitney will be missed but she was her own person long before she married Bobby...you can't blame an adults problems on someone else not even an ex-husband. I'm sure any ex-addict will tell you that.

O i know why Bobby was crying (my bag) He was crying cause he knew everybody was gonna start pointing fingers at him,that's why. And ruin his chances to make a successful comeback w/ New Edition. Death was the last thing he wanted to happen to Whitney Houston. He's already in the hole as it is. And Whitney is gonna put them deeper in the hole. Crying to get out of that quicksand. Sink mf sink.

I sure hope Whitney's family doesn't let Bobby get custody of Kristina. Cause she seems to be very laid back type. Who doesn't show too much emotion against a lot of things that has been going on for years. And them type are very easily taken advantage of. Next thing, she'll be on drugs. And going the wrong way of life. She's got plenty of family members who she can go stay with. They need to do him like they did Joe Jackson, a stay away order from the kids.

to everyone thats talking bad about bobby saying its his fault, yall are stupid and need to do some research. Bobby was known for drinking maybe smoking weed and dancing nasty he wasn't associated with the hardcore drugs until whitney she was doing that stuff before she got with bobby! its just the two of them together was bad for each other not that bobby twisted her arm and made her do ****! she is grown woman and responsible for her own actions everytime u saw them in public who was acting a fool and like a crackhead? Whitney not bobby. now since they split bobby has moved on with another woman and a new child has been touring for the last 3 years and doing well and has been clean for 6 years! but where is whitney? now who was the real addict?? Get your facts Straight before u judge him!!!

Obviously people are deeply hurt by this tradgey and posting with their emotions. But I don't see why there is so much anger towards Bobby Brown. Whitney Houston made her own choices. She could have walked away from the relationship but chose to stay in it and partake in the drug use herself. She had an addiction-to both Bobby and the drugs. She struggled with her own demons and the demons won. My heart goes out to Bobby Brown and all of Whitney's family-especially her daughter. The world lost a music Icon yesterday, but those close to her lost a loved one and dear friend. May God bless both Bobby and her family and give them comfort during this horrible, horrible tragedy.

Whitney, what a beautiful women with an amazing voice. I always felt you deserved better than Bobbie. We all make mistakes. Some which drive us in the wrong direction. Only Bobbie can ask for forgiveness. And still Whitney will be the one to decide. Love you Whitney RIP

Life is about choices, Whitney knew who Bobby was when she married him, she must have liked or wait loved the life style. She had a beautiful daughter , so it was not a mistake, it was a mistake when Whitney decided to do drugs, her decision and hers alone. Now pray her daughter, mother and family! Bobby Brown don't deserve blame , just compassion
