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.

There really is no proof that Bobby Brown got Whitney into
drugs. It's true that they both used drugs. However way it is Whitney and Bobby were married 15 years and loved each other enough to bring a child in the world. The family needs to remember that and respect what Whitney would have wanted. "She" has never blamed her husband and you have to remember they were divorced quite sometime and "she" wasn't and not really ready to let go. However way that was I still love her and remember her for the great that she is.

I truly hope that Bobby will step up to be the father that his daughter will need. Please Bobby stay away from the drugs and step up to the plate and be the father that you daughter truly deserves.

People get SO stupid and self righteous. She's gone. The service is for those that knew her to pay their last respects and say good bye. No one should ever be denied that. I hope he gets the opportunity to do that.

She was a grown woman when they married and Bobby Brown is not to blame.....did not do much to help though either!
A Marriage takes two and she choose to use drugs too!

Interesting that he is welcomed at his ex-wife's funeral but when Bobby's mother died, Whitney was there for him and THEIR daughter. I know the family is hurting right now but he needs to be there for who....THEIR daughter. Btw to everyone blaming Bobby for Whitney's substance abuse, SHE CHOSE TO DO DRUGS!! He did not put a gun to her head and make her do it.

I think the Houston family is being pretty terrible to bobby, first not letting him see his daughter, now this? cold hearted if you ask me, wasnt there a will??

jacksonorleans go to the funeral. Whitney always said she loved you. The Houston family is disrespecting the daughter by keeping her father away. They need to realize Whitney was a grown woman and made her own decisions so why should her family start now. You go need to beg forgiveness yourself.

I heard that Bobby and Whitney were getting along. They even had dinner together recently...ALL of them, Whitney, BK, Bobby and his girlfriend. It sounds like the family is blaming him for Whitney's drug addiction. You can't put the blame completely on one person in this situation. I'm sure Whitney did whatever Whitney wanted to do in life.

Tasteless......... They could all use this time to heal, build bridges, help that poor girl who just lost her mother. Its going to be a long road for her, she needs all her family to come together not point fingers. We as adults are responsible for our own choices. Step up and be the Christians you claim to be and FORGIVE and heal.

This is a shame! Whether we the public like it or not bobby brown was Whitney husband for 15 years! His is the father of Bobbi kris. If nothing else they loved each other tremendously thru the ups and downs. Bobby did not drag Whitney down, as much as we loved Whitney we all know she was no push over she did what show wanted to do. Bobby has cleaned up his act and has his life on track give him credit and the respect he deserves after all he hurts like everybody else!

I hope the family reconsiders a public, televised memorial much like they had for Michael J(it was so beautifully done). Bobby can attend that; there will be so many people there, his presence won't matter. I adored Whitney and she seemed to love her fans, too. We want to say good-bye!

Cissy, we understand that your mourning,hurt,sad and angry. But for one day can you let others mourn with you in the lost of your daughter? At least for your Granddaughters sake? We all loved Whitney and so did Bobby. Nobody is perfect. She gave us joy for decades with her beautiful voice. We are all mourning. But it seems like the devil is getting the best of you. I know that you're tired, but you are stronger than that. Faith......remember? much much love.
