Bobby Brown

Won't Miss a Beat

After Whitney's Burial

2/16/2012 11:51 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0216-bobby_brown_BN_01
Hours after Whitney Houston is laid to rest, her ex-husband Bobby Brown will hit the stage at an Indian Casino in Connecticut ... TMZ has learned.

Brown is booked to perform with the guys from New Edition at the Mohegan Sun Indian Casino at 8 PM EST on Saturday night.

Whitney's funeral is scheduled to begin at noon EST in Newark, NJ. It's unclear if Bobby plans to attend the funeral.

It's kind of like bookends, because hours after Whitney died Bobby performed on-stage with his group in Mississippi.

Families choice if he's invited or not. He ruined her, so I don't blame them for not inviting him

Well the 'original Chris Brown' has bills to pay. He has a new wife and a new child plus the 20 he has already. He is probably still supporting all his kids other than Bobbi Kristina. So the show must go on. Plus the repast will probably be to uncomfortable for him.

And so what is your point? The guy is being torn to shreds no matter what he does. The Houston's think he's broke and after Bobbi Kristina's money. So he's working, and now he's a bum for that? He worked the day of her death, why wasn't he with his daughter, so he goes to his daughter, she won't see him, now he's going back to work, what a bum? Leave the man alone.

STOP BLAMING HIM. WHITNEY WAS A WHACKED OUT CRAZY BEEEYYYATCH AFTER THEIR 2007 DIVORCE. IF HE WAS THE PROBLEM THEN SHE WOULD HAVE STRAIGHTENED HER SH8T OUT AFTER THE DIVORCE. MEN GET ALL THE BLAME.

So what, he's under contract and being denied by the family anyway. They've been divorced for years, is he just supposed to wallow in a hotel somewhere. Of course he's going to go back to his job. At least he's working and sober. Shouldn't you attackers be going after Whitney's 'friends' you know the ones the family claims were enablers.

He gotta work, he probably in debt, gotta pay those bills. Everyone has to work. A shame that he has to work on the day of Whitney;s funeral....a shame.

Whitney was doing drugs and drinking BEFORE Bobby Brown but People, especially Whitney's family needs someone to blame for Whitney's choices and Bobby is the scapegoat.

Since their divorce 5 years ago how many times has Bobby been seen on drugs, arrested, in and out of jail or had bad press? ZERO!

Since he got away from Whitney he has cleaned up his life and stayed on the straight with a new fiancee and child.

How many times has Whitney been drugged out, out of control since the divorce? ALWAYS

...Do the math Idiots!

A lot of people say "Bobby Brown ruined her" people HATE this guy, I just don't get it. It's Whitney's choice to do drugs, what does Brown have to do with it? just enabling? Am I missing something? I remember hearing a story that came out recently with Joe Rogan and Joey Diaz, how Diaz sold Whitney and Bobby MASSIVE amounts of coke, he said how Whitney and Bobby would do 3 OUNCES a week, Half Ounce A DAY! of Cocaine. He was amazed at how much they were doing, he would sell them pound after pound of it. This interview was shortly before she died a week if that.

Here is the Interview video.

I feel for Bobby, yeah I do. I understand that he and Whitney got high together, but no one really knows the ENTIRE story. Noone knows if Whitney knew before she married him that he loved weed and crack, no one knows if she didn't encourage it, that thing is no one knows except for him, and Whitney is not talking. I think she could have married better, but she wanted a bad boy, she wanted someone who she could be scandalous with, she wanted to rebel and she did. She like many women and men who become world famous young, never get a chance to do ANYTHING that is not do***ented especially today. She had her wild time with Bobby, it was tragic, sad, but she wanted it. I am a recovering addict, I completely understand the demons and desires that drove Whitney. I also understand she didn't want sobriety and chose to go down the path of pills and booze, and I think this was a suicide completely. She knew enough about booze and pills, I mean who doesn't, to know what she was up against. Enough said, but she is gone, he needs to make a living to support his other kids, and only he knows the REAL Whitney.
