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."

Bobby should not have been at funeral unless his daughter wanted him there. He is an ex husband for a reason and I sure wouldn't want an ex of mine at my funeral!

Wonder who's going to write the first tell all book on Whitney. And you know they will be cashing in on her death. My bets on Bobby Brown,though I hope I'm wrong.

What would be absolutely hilarious? Whoever is running WH's estate serving a cease and desist order to BB, telling him to quit trying to promote himself and his crappy band using his late EX-wife's name.

There's a problem here    

Is there some type of mental deficiency with that offspring that the public doesn't know about? She's an adult, she can choose to do whatever she wants to do and can tell people who try to stop her to F-off. I don't know if I believe all this crap or not.

Bobbi Kristina is an adult. It is her choice to see her father or not. No lawyer is going to be able to do a single thing about it.

Can we just let this go? No one here commentating or TMZ or any other "media" was there to know what really happened. Let the woman rest in peace. She was smoking weed before BB and she was back on her thing after BB, he still looks cracked out, look how his mouth slides over.. CRACKHEAD. I've seen enough in my day to know one when i see one. As far as the Houston family.. According to these "media" reports, they have no idea it even happened, BB and his gang rollin out.. show some respect for a woman who had a beautiful voice and her family. Drinking and taking Xanax is potentially deadly, even when someone is in perfect physical condition, it IS a lethal combo. This was IMO an accident. It is NOT BB fault, her family or maybe even her own, this is just another another tragedy. Guess what, it happens everyday to all cultures. But since those ppl are not "famous" or "infamous" we don't hear about it. Learn a lesson from another tragic star who's light is now gone... Don't drink and do drugs!!!! #smh... RIP Ms. Houston, RIP!

Too late...I think she was already stressed out from your "scene" at her mother's funeral... Besides Booby, your daughter is 18 years old.. She's an adult, maybe you should pay MORE attention to this fact.. I can hear the lawyers laughing way over here.. Fool.

Whitney Houston was responsible for her own drug and alcohol use. Her "people" -- her relatives enabled her - not Bobby Brown. Her people are not responsible for her drug and alcohol consumption. His daughter is responsible for her own drug and alcohol consumption. Bobby Brown is responsible for his own drug and alcohol consumption.
She died due to her own choices.

Whitney Houston had sole custody over her daughter. Bobby tried to sue whitney to pay him child support and lost. He is a worthless piece of trash. He tried to get whitney to pay child support for his other children , after they divorced.

Go Ms. Cissy protect your grandchild from that loser.

who cares    

Shame on Cissy it is her father and she has no right keeping Bobbbi from her dad nothing more then a selfish act by her. At this point bobby is a better influence then the people that been around Bobbi and whitney all these years bobby has been gone

ummm?!    

Since Bobbi K is an 18 year old adult, he would just be pissing money in the wind that he probably doesn't have in the first place.

Bobby Brown do Bobby Kristina a favor and drop dead. Your Spawn can pick at your dead body for money, instead of trying to get to whitney's.
