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."

Rumor has it? She was a beautiful person before YOU came into her life. Smoke another bowl Bobby Brown! If you think you are an innocent person to her death. More than half of those who knew and loved her? HATE YOU! Do the words............. LOSER mean anything to you????????? YOU do the math!!!!!! And to those who say she made her own decisions? You've never dealt with love that she did. And it brought her to the end! I know that GOD has her in His hands. And the devil holds Bobby Brown at the devil's side.

We all loved Whitney. But for everyone to blaime Bobby for her problems is flat out wrong. She had a way with people, she was able to keep custody of her child all this time without the law stepping in. She played the sober game well. She knew how to act normal when she needed to. There was a lot of people who failed her and most of them were the ones who didn't call the cops when they noticed her acting odd. Everyone turned there heads and just said, oh thats whitney, she will be fine. Clive was there, Ray J, etc. Stop blaiming Bobby. She left him awhile ago. She could have been his problem for all we know. He was touring and had cleaned up. She stayed in the game. I miss her, but I am am real.

To you and your family

You know I wish you the best. That song "More Man Than I'll Ever Need" that was the song of my life. I think about you everytime I hear it. That was the year the Giants won the Superbowl, when you sang the Natl. Anthem in 1991.
The Giants are my team, and they just won that last Superbowl XLV1, for you.

some just don't know    

Both of them had a addiction when they meet two active addicts together together is nothing but bad news even though this was true they tried too make it work to no avail. She needed better support in her recovery because she didn't she lost the battle. Now Whitney is in the best hands their is no more tears or pain just ever lasting LOVE HAPPY VALENTINE WHITNEY

I really wish people would stop perpetuating the rumor that Bobby made Whitney do drugs!! People please!! Bobby did not have the money to fund a cocaine habit- coke is a rich person's drug!! She was getting high long before they hooked up, and clearly she was getting high after they split! Hell, she was on coke for 30 years, her heart just couldn't take any more of the ups and downs of all those different drugs and liquor. Her number was up, we'll all miss her, but I just wish people wouldn't go so hard on Bobby. They were toxic together, but he was NOT the catalyst for her demise!!!!

I only hope and pray her child has more support in this time of sorrow than Whitney had in her recovery which was apparently "None". Sobriety means exactly that, abstinence. How it all started with Bobby Brown doesn't even matter anymore because he hasn't mattered in years. All that remains of Whitney Houston is her child. No one can replace a mother so "Hopefully" the rest of us will gather together and respect this child's right to privacy and give her the space and support she so desperately needs now.
