Bobby Brown

"Crying Fits" Over Whitney

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.

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

Why is anybody going to see this loser in concert? Wasn't he kicked out of New Edition? What were they thinking of letting him back in? Too bad, they actually had great songs and I thought were good people.

I agree with all of you BB is a dirt bag and even though Whitney was an adult he got her addicted because she loved him so much ..........her first mistake. Why is he not with his Daughter and comforting her. BK probably doesn't want that freakin druggie around her. I just hope he doesn't do the same to his Daughter and get her into drugs.
Whitney will never be forgotten.

If you "associate" with drug addicts, thieves, murderers,etc. you are more inclined to mimick the same behavior....Bobby may not have "made" her use drugs but her association with him and his "drug habits" made it easy for her to become an addict as well...the drugs were right because he was using them. She was raised in the church..so you have a young naive woman who has hooked up with a "bad boy". Maybe curiosity got the best of her and she tried the drugs and became hooked...we don't know the whole story. I have a daughter who was a straight "A" student til she hooked up with a bad boy..now she's hooked on pain killers and sitting in jail for burglary, petit theft, dealing in stolen property. I pray for all involved. This is a tragedy..for everyone. If Bobby is the one who introduced Whitney to drugs, he will have to answer to God for his actions...I just hope his soul & conscience are clear!!

Preacher wife    

what I dare you blame bobby brown for loving Houston....many of you nosy busy bodies have no idea what love is..she is suffering from a society that judge us for the amount of cars we have n so forth. we also have to many implications that a young man should never marry an older woman. and when a women who has it all marry a common man you all sure do trip.......she had a broken heart..every body want to tell her whats best for her....NONSENSE why you want to judge drug abuse..adultery and racism are as ulgy as drug use....so leave her legacy alone..with out bobby and whitney..we woullnt have lil bobbi

Yeah, Bobby. The concert must go on. Gotta pay those "rocks." You not only robbed a daughter of her mother, you robbed the whole world. You're a worthless turd.

Does anyone even know what happened to her yet? How can you blame anyone?? Whitney was a grown woman who made some very unfortunate choices for many years - even when she was quite far away from Bobby Brown. Let's just try to remember the great music she left behind and not play the blame game. It won't bring her back anyway.
