Bobby Brown

Distraught After Hearing

He's Unwanted at Funeral

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

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.

He got her started on drugs and likely didn't see Whitney as anything more than a meal ticket. Christ-Whitney was paying his child support to his other baby-mommas for him!

Latest news is the Houston family have agreed to have Bobby Brown at the funeral services--Thank God! Could be Jesse Jackson had a good talk with them and Bobby Brown. Hope they find reconciliation so they can be on their road to healing. God Bless the Houston and Brown family. RIP Whitney.

Bobby, please don't let this ruin you, be strong, people, especially family have a need to point the finger of blame at SOMEONE other than GOD himself, who has the power to do this. It was her time to go. Do Not Take This Personally, It Could Ruin You. R.I.P Whitney. The End. Why don't you write a book, I will buy it. Hang In There, Take Care Of LiL Bobby, she is in need of some deep help. Put her first for now.

I can understand why her family doesn't want Bobby Brown there. He was a common thug who just happened to get a break in the music industry. He made her life a living hell and turned her world into a drugged chaotic mess! I have no respect at all for that man! The only good thing that came from that man is his beautiful daughter, Bobbi Kristina. I feel so bad for her and her grandmother. My god give all of you peace! Love Whitney Houston & her beautiful voice will live on forever!!!!<3

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.

Regardless of what happened in the relationship between bobby and whitney, there was a beautiful child born into that union. Therefore, this child should have her father there to give her support during this time of mourning. We can not change the past, but we do have the future that can be worked on. God is the ultimate judge, we are not. The family needs to be praying and not dwelling on things they can not change. Remember, we all weep what we sow. Everyone has done something they wish they could take back. Some have the opportunity to make a change, other don't get the chance. She has only one parent now, don't deprive her of his support.

that is so cruel and evil the man was married to the woman and he does have a child with her, why can't he give his last respect to her.

He is the father of their child. Why be so ignorant to not allow the man to stand with his daughter. He may have been the some of the cause of her drug use but she had a mouth and could have said no to drugs like so many others. Blaming him for her drug use is like blaming a fork and spoon for your obesity. I hate when people make a funeral all about them. It’s not about you and who you like or who you don't it’s about the one you are laying to rest, get over yourself and act like adults.

look he might not be the greatest man out there but damn that is his ex wife of like 14 yrs, let the man say goodbye too just like anyone else has the right too. . bobby might not have been the best man for her but he loved her an she loved him.. . otherwise they would have never been married that long. so sad
