Bobby Brown

Fighting Whitney's Family

To See Bobbi Kristina

2/14/2012 4:10 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Bobby Brown still hasn't seen his daughter -- THREE days after Whitney Houstons deathBobby Brown still hasn't seen his daughter -- THREE days after Whitney Houston's death -- and he thinks Whitney's family ... specifically, Cissy Houston, is throwing up the road block.

Sources close to Bobby tell us he hasn't connected with Bobbi Kristina since arriving in L.A. Sunday night -- despite placing several phone calls and making an attempt to physically see her ... early this morning.

We're told Brown was turned away by Whitney's family and friends ... who are caring for BK at a home in the Los Angeles area.

According to our sources, Bobby is angry and frustrated because he only came to L.A. to care for 18-year-old Bobbi Kristina after she was hospitalized twice.

As for why he's blaming Whitney's mom for the freeze out -- we're told Brown thinks Cissy has hated him for years.

In-laws.

First of all for the person that said Booby introduced his daughter to drugs, WRONG!!!! Bobbi's ex boyfriend stated that when he tried to get her to stop using cocaine, she replied "No, I am just like my momma!" People need to lay off of Bobby because it is obvious that they don't have their facts straight. Whitney was the enabler in that relationship. She was the aggressor in that relationship and as much as I love Whitney, she was killing Bobby and herself. Just look at what happened after the divorce.....Bobby gets clean and is now re-married and had a baby a few years back. However, Whitney tried but could not kick her addiction. If Bobby was the negative force in this then it would be the reverse. As for him being an abuser, let's see how many of you will just stand there and let someone attack you. Even on the reality show that they had together, it was Whitney who was always getting into altercations or starting drama and it was always Bobby trying to get her to calm down. By no means is Bobby innocent but he didn't have as much control or influence over Whitney as people think. And as someone who has been around them at different venues, Bobby definitely is not the monster that the media has brainwashed people into thinking he is. Whitney even said that at times she is her own worst enemy and that no one was going to tell her what to do. So he gets out to save his life and that is exactly what he did. And if it is true that Cissy is keeping Bobbi away from her father, she needs to stop. Let that man be a father. He is human, he makes mistakes but he has the right to be a father. Hell, if anything I would be worried about Bobby's sobriety while around his daughter. Bobbi is still on that stuff and Bobby can easily be pulled back in. Get her some professional help and allow her father to be there to see her through. You never know, the fact that he has been clean since he left Whitney may be the inspiration Bobbi needs to get herself clean.

Of course Cissy Houston hates you, Bobby! You physically beat her daughter! You were a wife beater! DUH! And let's not forget, you introduced Whitney to drugs and caused her to become an addict. You did that, and you knew what you were doing. It was your plan. You never loved Whitney!

He shouldn't have to fight to see his child!!! It's a shame that everybody is STILL focused on this drug thing!! First and foremost the woman is dead. Second, WHITNEY introduced Bobby to their drug of choice!! Real fans already know that! She was married to this man and i'm sure he still loves her dearly! All BS to the side, do it for the child, or they will regret it in the long run! TRUST THAT!

The question is has he been there for her as a father prior to Whitney's death? If so then he should be aloud to see her, although I believe she is old enough now to make that choice. Otherwise, well he brought it upon himself.

He's just distraught because he can't get to BK. Bk stands to inherit a fortune from her Mother, and he wants to make sure he's around to help spend it. If she were my daughter no one or nothing would have kept me from her the day her mother died! Or, maybe he had to sober up first!

For all the people hating on Bobby including Whitney's family and friends...She loved him. Since you all claim to love God remember he is watching you all..Stop
showing all this ugliness . REALLY NOW THIS IS NOT LOVE ! NOT THE GOD I KNOW....

Funny how everyone blames bobby (a pothead) for her "occupational" drug use with cocaine and/or other drugs. cocaine was her drug of choice, many years before they met and married. i pray her soul is at peace and her daughter finds support and love.
crack kills...its just so sad, i love whitney and her music, but its just such a terrrible waste of such a god given talent...RIP Whitney
I want to please ask all of you to stop placing blame for Ms Houston problems on her husband. Its obvious that-her and Bobby both were in love at one time in their lives.. Being that both came into the marriage with prior luggage blame can not be placed on anyone person. Life is very hard for all of us and no matter what happens we are all responsible for what we allow into our lives..GOD will not judge or hold anyone accountable for your life but you.. I hope that you can see past your ego's and accept that Whitney lived a life that most of you can only dream of and it is the public that judged her harshly on her down falls instead of her triumphs GOD forgive us all for that..
Whatever Bobby was - good, bad or indifferent, Whitney knew. She loved him, married him, lived with him, hated him - maybe, sometimes - and procreated with him - no different than any other person on the face of this earth! I believe that there're millons of us who truly loved, admired and appreciated her contribution to the world of music. I join with the millions of sincere, non judgemental fans and admirers in praying for God's richest blessings and deepest comfort to her entire family.

The only reason Bobby Brown wants to see Bobbi Kristina is because she is going to inherit all of Whitney Houston's millions.

Really people? Whitney admitted on national TV that she was using drugs long before she met and married Bobby Brown. Birds of a feather...there was Whitney the Superstar and Whitney the person...Whitney the person connected with Bobby, two people with addiction problems, the combination was bound to become toxic for BOTH OF THEM. Bobby moved on after the divorce, got sober, humbled himself, started working again, and is making moves to have better life. He didnt drag Whitney down, she was already down there with him...we just didnt know it. We thought her public image was real, how much better would it have been for her to just be herself...instead of trying to live up to a carefully crafted image.

Since Bobbi Kristina is 18 I think she's of an age where she could make her own decisions as to whether or not she wants to see her father. Also, she doesn't need any added pressure at this time only.
