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.

The word is that the church only seats 300 people that is why the Houston family could not invite everybody they would have liked to invite.

Then, this little piece of sh-t, named Bobby Brown, wanted to come in with 9 of his entourage making them a party of 10. What kind of a man ditches the funeral of his ex-wife and a father to their only child, Bobbi K, and walked away with the 9 of his entourage.

It is very clear to me that his posse is more important and has more priority than the funeral of the mother of his only child.

The Houston family must be right about their initial decision to leave him out of the funeral and all. And they must also be right being on guard about Kristina's assets from the hands of that little piece of ****.

No matter how you dress the monkey, it is still very much the monkey that it is.

Those people shown in the pic are his children and her Step-children. I'm sure she didn't feel as though she divorced the kids. Who takes the time to "tweet" some BS like that, Al Sharpton ... Wow, what disrespect ... Now he'll be on every media outlet, who will accept him, talking about how he "took control" of the situation.... smh

Wow Bobby Brown, your way or the highway, even at the mother of your daughters funeral. What a self centered piece of crap you are. It's no wonder why she left you. If ever there was a time to redeem yourself it was now.

Bobby Brown has always been a ******* and today has proved that out. Reverand Sharpton is defending Bobby as usual. Another jerk. Bring 9 friends to a funeral like he's going to a concert. What a jerk!!!!!!!!!

What a bloody low life, he thinks it's all about him. Invitation was for two people not nine and you decided to leave early Bobby, shame on you. What about your daughter, this is the time where she needs you the most. What a deadbeat dad you are, what a great role model you are.

who cares    

So everyone seems to be trashing Bobby Brown over him leaving. Lets not forget that TMZ reporting is far from accurate very far and has been since whitney died. Bobby may have just left because they wouldn't let him sit with his daughter which every father would want to do. So before trahing Bobby over brining 9 people with him it may very well be that it's not the reason he left....

From everything I've read and seen, Bobby Brown doesn't seem like too great of a person. In the end though, Whitney chose her own actions. This entire thing is just plain sad. I hate that she's dead and just hope that Bobbi Christina is having her feelings heard. If she didn't want to be around her dad, then the family did the right thing. I would've thought they'd assume Bobby Brown would want to sit by his daughter and let him know ahead of time it wasn't going to be that way.

Ms.Cissy is so WRONG, she should have let Bobby and his three children sit with family he is Bobbi Kristina's father and those are her siblings...Ms. Cissy won't rest well.
