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.

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

Bobby Brown is a non-story.Nobody wants to hear about him.Quit covering him.This article gives him and his band free publicity.No more about Bobby Brown,he's most famous for abusing and introducing Whitney Houston to a lifestyle of drugs,and ruining her career.Quit promoting losers.Straight to hell Bobby Brown.

LOOK, HE WASN'T THE ONE MAKING HER DO DRUGS. SHE WAS DOING DRUGS WAY BEFORE HE CAME ALONG. IT'S SAD THAT HER DAUGHTER WILL ALWAYS HAVE TO HEAR ABOUT BOTH HER PARENTS BEING DRUG ADDICTS BEFORE ANYTHING ELSE. SHE DIDN'T HAVE ANY CHOICES LIKE THEY DID.

Who are you to judge someone who takes drugs? No one can point fingers. We're adults yes, but we're not heroes. For some people, life is tougher and some cope better, some cope worse with challenges. I can't put myself in anyone's shoes. Stop being judgmental and appreciate her courage (even if unfortunately it did not last forever) till the end.

Why is everyone saying that Bobby destroyed Whitney. He didn't. Whitney was already on drugs prior to meeting him. She dated other good guys...Randall Cunningham, Eddie Murphy..but they were not "bad" enough for her. She chose Bobby because of his life-style (drugs)..She was the one with the money who could finance their habit. She ruined herself. She made a choice. Yes she was great and a beautiful composer. She had her own demons. Lets face it..it was her career and her fault. Think about it Bobby already had a bad reputation when she hooked up with him. It is sad that she's gone, but she held her destiny and death in her hands

@SB Yes, she had free will to do what she wanted. And yes, us women do some stupid stuff in the name of love. But, where was he for his daughter when he heard the news. How could he go on to play after being with her for 15 years? I'm sorry, my ex and I have been divorced since '97 because of drugs and I am remarried. But if he died, yes it would still hurt me. And I would be right next to my two daughters that I have with him. His fans would have understood, the only reason for him to "go on with the show" is to line his pocket with some drug money.

Okay. . . I know i'll get flack for this. . . but Whitney ALLOWED this sack of fecal matter to ruin her. And since he IS a sack of decomposing rat bodies i have to say I AM THANKFUL he's on stage and NOT anywhere around the ONLY OFFSPRING we have from WHITNEY!!! Stay right where you are Bob. . . seriously. . . STAY THE F*&K AWAY FROM HER DAUGHTER!!!

It is apparent from these comments, that you all grieve the loss of Whitney & for that my heart goes out to you all. BUT, I believe that if Whitney were allowed to read your comments, she would BEG all of us to use these internet postings to encourage those that she loved the most, her daughter,her mama, the rest of her family & all of her TRUE friends that will miss her hugs & kisses, her beautiful smile & probably a "fun to be with" side that we weren't privy to. She would want us to encourage Bobbie Kristina to seek her comfort in this loss from her grandmother & her daddy. Encourage her to run away--far & fast from the so called friend(s) that gave her a pill, instead of holding her & crying with her in this terrible time. And I really believe that she would want mercy & grace extended to Bobbie Brown, too. "IF" Bobbie Brown got Whitney "hooked" on drugs, please remember that someone somewhere got him hooked too. Why not encourage ALL of Whitney's family in their time of such hurt instead of attacking them when they are so vulnerable? Please don't use your hurt to dishonor the memory of Whitney Houston. I can assure you that these postings won't be printed off to be kept & read at a later date, as they offer no comfort for the hard days ahead. PLEASE stop this & START typing words of kindness & encouragement to her family, ALL of them. You will be greatly missed, Whitney Houston, by so many people for many different reasons--but most of all I'm sure by your family
& your real & true friends. I pray that you rest in peace & that your mama's church family will surround your survivors with the love of Christ, as it has been my experience that the hardest days are ahead. BLB
