Whitney Houston Funeral

Bobby Brown Already Left

2/18/2012 9:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Bobby Brown has already left the church.
Whitney Houston's funeral has only just begun ... but Bobby Brown has already left the church. 

Our camera guys outside the funeral spotted Bobby ever-so-briefly on his way in ... and his SUVs returned a short time later, though Bobby cannot be seen leaving (see video below)

Rev. Al Sharpton tweeted just moments ago, saying, "I am at Whitney's funeral. I spoke with Bobby Brown trying to calm him down and not distract from the services. Today is about Whitney!"

As TMZ first reported, after some opposition from some family members ... Bobby was officially invited to the funeral today.

I normally would be appalled to hear of 'tweeting' at a funeral. HOWEVER. Bobby Brown was OBVIOUSLY looking for attention. He was looking for pity. Guess he forgot- He was told YOU CAN BRING TWO PEOPLE. 2. Not 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 or 9! 2.

So, while I think I'm sure the other people with him probably did want to pay their respects, there are a LOT of people that probably wanted to be invited to the funeral, and weren't.

I think Rev. Al Sharpton figured that Bobby Brown was looking for attention, and felt it couldn't wait the three hours- those three hours for the service needs to be about Whitney and not her crackhead ex. So, he debunked Bobby Brown's story, until the funeral was over and it could be further addressed. For once, I think, in the oddest of situations, using Twitter was actually alright in this case.

Bobby Brown- U MAD BRO?

And all you people like to pretend you "know" all those morons in that church... get rid of them all and the gene pool would be much cleaner and there would be less racial tension.

I AM SO SORRY, this Bobby incident has cast a shadow on such a beautiful service. What difference does it make who sits where and, with whom? The Houston family gave in graciously to Bobby and, THAT should have been IT! I had never witnessed a black church service or, burial service, unfortunately, it was about one of the greatest songbirds ever and, will remain with me for a long, long time.

Poor Bobby Kristina, she has a very windy road to walk alone now and she doesn't have the family support she needs (her father is absolute garbage, her grandmother is too old and she's kind of hooked on drugs as well) wish her the best though.

Feel so bad for bobby brown, he should be allowed to be at Whitney's funeral and be comfortable. For god sakes, he was a big part of Whitney's life, they even had a daughter together. Whitney's Mother is just being selfish, and making herself be comfortable, and not thinking of her own grandchild and Bobbies feelings.

He brought an entourage of 9. They were asked to leave. Brown decided to leave with them. Priorities, I suppose.
