on Stage Hours After Her Death

Bobby Brown said it was difficult for him to take the stage with New Edition last night, but just hours after learning of the death of his ex-wife Whitney Houston ... he did it for his loyal fans. 

As TMZ previously reported, Brown was having "crying fits" upon learning of Whitney's passing. But Brown and the rest of the group performed in Mississippi last night, with Brown pointing to the sky and saying, "I love you, Whitney."  

New Edition released a statement yesterday supporting Brown, which said in part, "We are absolutely shocked and saddened by the sudden and untimely death of our dear sister Whitney. As a group, we are extremely close; when one of us hurts, we all hurt."

Whitney Houston never did a drug in her life until Bobby gave it to her..Im not blaming him, because we are all responsible for our own decisions, but yes I am blaming his influence over her. The real tragedy here is that someone as powerful as Whitney Houston gave her power away for love.. a love that a host has for a parasite even as it sucks the life out of them. Rest in peace Whitney, you are free now.

He got on the stage, instead of getting on a plane to get to his child.

To me, and my opinion, he should have been with his daughter. Not on stage. His fans would have totally understood.

I find it strange that he did not cancel the concert. But I guess that just that shows what kind of person mr Brown is.

It won't be long before he tries to cash in with a "tribute" album.

He should not have gone on stage. Considering he abandoned New Edition once before - I think they could've managed without him. He wasn't concerned about letting down New Edition fans in 1980s when they were popular, but it's such a huge concern now?? Bobbi Kristina needed him (obvious now given fact she was hospitalized). Disgusting. I don't care if people think I'm judging him: he beat Whitney, he was verbally abusive, he manipulated her, he was envious of her the LEAST he could do for her is to put their child above anything else. But he didn't: he chose fame.

Personally Whitney Houston was a troubled soul since the 80's.... Bobby Brown had nothing to do with her demise.... After they divorced he clearly cleaned up his act and moved forward with living a sober lifestyle.... Whitney in turn continued her own path of destruction....
