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.

Are any of BB's other kids drug addicts and go out drinking with their moms?

I find it VERY interesting that Bobby released an official statement quite some time ago about what REALLY happened, but the ever quick TMZ has failed to be "ever quick" and post it here. Shame on you TMZ. Didn't Jesse himself say Bobby should have been treated with more respect during that incident, which means there's a lot more to the story than saying he was being a brat about his entourage. I'm no fan of Bobby, I love, love, love Whitney, but you should report fairly and post everything.

Jenn, Sharpton said he "tweeted from the Pastor's office, not during the ceremony. I did not misbehave."

who cares    

Al did what Al did so that as soon as the service was over all caneras would be ob him. There is no reason what so ever to tweet this at all as it only created the mess we have now in the media. Al i am lost for words your tweet made bobby look like the devil but then once cameras in your face you tell them to leave BB alone????? You started it all you freaking moron by tweeting it and the media ran with it. Today ended up being about Al and not whitney...

It amazes me that TMZ can always report on misinformation and try to paint Bobby Brown in such a negative light. First and foremost, the entourage that they have referenced were Whitney's stepchildren, and people that she knew for more than 15 years of her life. In fact, Whitney performed at Bobby Brown's mother's funeral less than a year ago, so obviously she was fond of the Brown family. Secondly, according to Reverends Jackson and Sharpton who saw what occurred, they said that Bobby was nothing but respectful when he stepped into the church. he paid his respects at Whitney's casket and went to set in the Family section. Some idiot from the church, funeral home, or distant relative told him to move, and then told him that they could not accommodate his family. He wanted to set next to he and Whitney's only child together, and as her father he should have been seated next to her. People complain so much about black men not stepping up to the fatherhood plate, and the you castigate him when he does. So instead of causing a scene, he decided to leave. And from all accounts, they believed that Bobby could have been seated with his family and children, Whitney's step children, and Bobbi Kris' siblings. So for the love of God, stop with the bull TMZ. As Whitney always said you all cannot believe that she married a man like Bobby Brown instead of Kevin Costner, but that is who she loved and spent 15 years of her life with. Give it up!

Come on TMZ, Bobby Brown brought his kids with him not a "entourage". They are Bobbi Kris's half siblings. The pic you show in the column show Bobby with three of his kids, his family. They went to pay respects and support their sibling. Geez, I find the use of entourage in this way very disrespectful.

I have a problem with Bobby Brown just like everyone else...but the man is Bobbi Kristina's dad and Whitney's family is refusing to let him see her...I think that is not right...I don't know why Whitney married him in the first place but she did and they created a daughter together...right now Bobbi Kristina needs a dad for support and he needs to step up and Whitney's family needs to let him..

He had no intention of ever doing right, so I don't know why he bothered to show up! Attention is all he was after. Sadly for Whitney she picked a bad apple; all he did was use her like an old rag. He will try to drain his daughter if given the chance. I hope CIssy keeps her away from him; he is nothing but a thug!!!!!!!!!!!! Let them all leave and go do what they do best!

A perfect ending for a perfect loser.

It's so sad and obvious that Whitney's career was ruined by drugs. I thought it odd that President Obama reached out to Bobbi Kristina after Whitney's death. Was that a political move? With all we've witnessed I think the Obama era should be over. I'm sorry that Whitney had to die to realize this.

He should have humbled himself and sat where they asked him to sit.This was not about him,This was about Whitney,and he should have been there for his daughter.He showed no class or respect.
