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.

If this horrible accident happen when Kristina, was between the age of 13-17,…and Boobi Brown want his child. You can write a will etc… Hands down, DNA wins every time. Celebrity or not! No matter how hard life gets…or how bad your parents were with parenting skills, you only get one mother / father and they can never be replaced. As for Kristina, she truly could never deny who her father is. She’s is a female version of her father. My thoughts and prays goes out to the Houston and Brown family. It’s only far when you have a child involve.

i dont believe this info.. what people may not be aware is bobby brown's mother passed recently and whitney was at the funeral and even song at the funeral without any objections from bobby brown just because they were divorced doesn't mean they hated each other this just couldn't get along as man and wife.

Whiteny Houston did drugs before she met Bobbi and her family knows it. She has beend ivorced form him for 4 years now and stil she did drugs. But what the family should focus is her daughter. She needs her father. Whether they like him or not it is not about that. I thinkit is very selfish that they keep him away he loved her once loved her enought to marry her. if it wasn't for him, they wouldn't have a grand daughter..

if they can't set aside their differences for something like this - the source of whitney's struggles lay within her family. its a real tragedy that these people are so selfish. perhaps things would have gone differently, if her family were a bit more supportive and much less selfish and bullheaded. like it or not - brown is the man who whitney chose to be the father of her child, which makes him family. family is family. in times like these, you have to put your own ideals aside.

I can understand the frustration because during their marriage he was a horrible influence but ultimately it was Whitney's choice he never held a gun to her head she put the drugs into her own body. It is very unfortunate I was really hoping she was going to have a triumphant end. However the human appreciation and love so many share for her is really beautiful. I hope her spirit is able to absorb it.

Folks, please stop saying that Bobby brought Whitney her down fall. None of us know what he did and HER family has been picked up for drugs as well. This whole situation is sad. He is Bobbi Kris father and HE has more power than any of them over her on the legal end. That HOUSTON clan should stop if any of this is true and think Damn, I should practice what I screetch about in church and know, Jesus taught love and respect not hate.

Bobby is a filthy, nasty druggie. He does not belong anywhere near Whitney, Bobbi or the family. Just looking at him makes me sick.

What a mess. Sounds like a movie in the making or another reality show. He controlled her all the way to her grave so why stop now. PRICK.

Hmmmm....The family should have been keeping him away from Whitney when she was ALIVE...

If the family does not want him to attend the funeral, then he should put on his big undies and be a man and stay away out of respect. This is not about what he wants, this is about her family. Besides, they had divorced and he moved on. Deal with it. Stay away.

How many of you knew Whitney was doing drugs before she event started dealing with Bobby? Weird isn't it? Blame the bad boy. Her bad choices started before he came into her life. Yes, she had the greatest voice ever, however Bobby can't be the complete blame for her demise. Sorry.

alot of times we do things out of anger and later on we are sorry and there is nothing we can do to make it may not be true the media hears some thing and just runs with it.the family is a christian family and should let him come and be with his daughter.families do not stay angry always if they do not let him come they could live to regret it later and not be able to change what they have done.people are saying bobby should of died your mouth is a weapon and saying some thing so harsh could come back on you and your family.i tell my kids do not wish bad things on people.i pray they let him i have said it may not be true
