Bobby Brown

Won't Drag Lawyers

Into Bobbi Kristina Dispute

2/19/2012 10:05 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0211_BOBBI_BOBBICHRISTINA_WHITNEY_EX2_GETTYBobby Brown has been battling with Whitney Houston's family over seeing his daughter ever since Whitney passed away last week ... but Bobby won't turn this into a legal battle ... TMZ has learned.

Sources close to the New Edition singer tell TMZ ... Bobby really wants to be there for Bobbi Kristina, but does not want to make the situation more stressful for her than it already is.

We're told Bobby was very upset with how he was treated at Whitney's funeral yesterday and feels her family should be as considerate to him as his family was to Whitney when Bobby's mother passed away last year.

According to our sources, Bobby won't bring lawyers into the situation and, as one source said, he feels "this sort of thing you let the higher power handle."

Leave the man alone. So sorry to tell you he didn't kill Whitney. No matter how much revenge the world wants - he didn't kill her.

Bobbi 'da pimp Brown did kill Whitney. He slowly killed Whitney and itroduced her and facilitated drugs and controlled substances into her life. Let the moon cricket hang! Fat faced pig he is! Kinda reminds me of my sister, fat Shannon Drum.

Bobby put down that crack pipe she is an 18 year old girl. He cant sue anyone for custody lol. What does he think lawyers will do? she isnt Britney. If she never sees or talks to him again there is nothing he can do about it legally.

Is Harvey really a lawyer because it would appear he's not if he thinks this is a story at all. The girl is eighteen and therefore it's up to her to see her father or not. Just another TMZ fabricated story to waste you time, nothing to see here. At least they didn't do the old "our sources" nonsense which is no more than TMZ making guesses at stuff.

And what exactly would these lawyers do anyway? She's nearly 19 years old and as an adult she is free to choose for herself who she will or won't see. Were she under 18 then yeah, he probably would have a case, but she's not.

how nice of him to put out a public statement that makes no sense and has no legal ground. BK is almost 19 years old. His filing legal do***ents ceased a couple of years ago. Too bad he never took the time to see her when he had a legal leg to stand on. Now it is her choice and sounds like she doesn't want to be around him.

Bring lawyers into it!? What a laugh. The boy has burned out some brain cells to even suggest he could have. First of all his daughter is legally an adult. Second, he was permitted to bring two guests but showed up with nine knowing it was a church venue with limited seating. And last...is this why he is closing his dedications to Whitney with the statement "badass Bobby Brown?" Is he "mocking" a phrase that came perhaps from her family? Grow up Robert, get over yourself, understand that some will blame you for partying "with her" (Whitney) and not like you in general. Oops...will he try to sue me for slander now?

Kids 18 can do what she want's. Maybe they are just mad because Browns been clean and sober for over 6 years now and has moved on. Whitney did not. She only made herself worse and look where it got her.

Houstons are going to blame Brown like the Jacksons blamed Dr. Murray. Everyone knows Whitney and Michael did this to themselves. Leave the guy alone already. Houston was no saint.

Bobby "Sorry-Ass" Brown won't be bringing lawyers in for two reasons.

1. Bobbi-Kristina's age; and,
2. Sorry Ass Brown can't afford attorneys.
