Bobby Brown

Distraught After Hearing

He's Unwanted at Funeral

2/15/2012 5:15 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0214_bobby_brown_exd_tmz
Bobby Brown is "extremely disappointed" after hearing that several members of Whitney Houston's family do not want him to attend the singer's funeral ... sources tell TMZ.

Sources close to Bobby tell us ... people connected to the Houston family have reached out to Bobby to warn him that he shouldn't attempt to attend the funeral because the family isn't fond of him.

However ... we're told Bobby has not received any OFFICIAL word from the family about his invite status.

Sources tell us ... Bobby WANTS to attend the funeral so he can support his daughter Bobbi Kristina, but he hasn't decided on a plan of action yet.

Bottom line -- we're told Bobby is hoping the family will be able to set aside their differences so they all can focus on mourning the loss of their loved one.

If some of you remember Bobby's mom passed away January of 2011. His dad this past December. He had allowed Whitney to be in attendance for his moms funeral and she sang with Johnny Gill as well. So why won't they allow him to go for Bobbi Kris? This is her only living parent left. So if he was all that bad he would've said Whitney you stay home just let Bobbi Kris attend. He and his family put asside their differences for that day for Bobbi Kris why can't the Houstons be on the same level!

It could possibly be that Bobbi K is much to sedated to voice her stance on wanting her dad with her at the funeral. The Houston fam are taking advantage of Bobbi K's situation or just not paying any heed to her wanting to see her dad and having him with her to comfort her and provide her the emotional support from her only living parent. They both need each other at this time to comfort and support each other to to say their most painful 'goodby' to Whitney. It appears as if the Houston fam is taking out their revenge on Bobby Brown by keeping Bobbi K from her dad. Oh my, what a wonderful example of a Christian family. No wonder Whitney was so confused, insecure and found power and peace in drugs and alcohol. RIP dear Whitney, and God Bless all the Houston and Brown family.

Perhaps it's time for Bobby B to get his atty/s to he can now have custody of his dear daughter and attend the services with his dtr. The best to you Bobby and congratulations on your years of being clean and sober.

Whitney Houston died on her own. Nobody forced to continue abusing alcohol or drugs. Bobby Brown should be permitted to mourn his ex-wife's passing with their daughter. The Houston family can choose another day to punish him for the things they feel are his fault. Let the man pay his respects.

You and you sorry ass family bled Whitney dry and you will have to answer for your conniving schemish ways one day. Her blood is on your hands you piece of ****! It should've been you that died instead of her!

If Whitney left this loser, it was most likely because of drugs, and she was trying to get her life back on track. Do you think she cares if his azz shows up at her funeral? HELL NO!! Stay home and stare at your crack in the mirror,you loser, and let Whitney rest in peace.

the family should let Bobby attend the funeral with his daughter. Maybe he did... turn her to drugs.. we do not know for sure.. Whitney also had free will.
A lot of people blame Bobby. But that should not prevent him from saying good-bye to the mother of his child.

How is this Houston family going to have any healing in their life if they continue harrasing their former son-in-law and prevent Bobbi K from seeing her dad? It will only fester deeper seated wounds especially to Bobbi K towards her mom's family and bring more dysfuntion to their lives.
Yes, Bobby and Whitney were no angels and neither are the Houston family. Bobby has gone on with a good life-clean and sober, and Whitney had gone on with her life as well. Both Bobby and Whitney had a good divorced relationship and often went out to dinner with their daughter. The one I have certain suspicions is RayJ..when will he reveal the messages Whitney left him on his cell before she died????

First off none of us should be judgemental nor critical when it comes to judging the situation at hand(wheather or not he should or should not be there). WE ALL HAVE SINNED AND FALLEN SHORT OF THE GLORY OF GOD!!! Bobby Brown's dirt is no dirtier than ours. DIRT IS DIRT PERIOD... Personally I feel he should be there for his daughter considering the cir***stances. Being the ONLY child and Bobby and Whitney share together Bobby needs to be there for his daughter. Because now Bobby Kristina is without one less parent (her mom). So the family (Houston) needs to put their personal feelings aside and do what is best for Bobby Kristina and what is best for her is for her father to be there for her and support her because believe it or not... This is only the beginning of Bobby Kristina's new life without her mother. So let's have some compassion (Houston family).

That's sad! So much anger and hatred in these comments. No healing here. Hope he is invited.

Whitney probably was fixed by her Doctor and faile d since then, becoming narcissistic and failing with the rhetoric of many blues entertainers before her. She is finally joining the tradition that MJ has waived to her.
