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."

Exactly what I was going to say. She is almost 19 years old. How does the Houston family have any control over whether Bobbi can see her dad. Why can't she decide?

Bobbi Kristina is an "ADULT". Bobby Brown "CAN'T" force his "presence" on her and he "KNOWS IT"!!! He really has "NO OTHER CHOICE" except to wait for her to reach out to him, if this is what she wants to do!!! Now maybe he'll "GO AWAY" and stop pretending that "ANYONE" actually CARES ABOUT HIM!!!

Thank you to Bobby for behaving like a real man and like a true father about all of this. It's often hard for people to find their way and to be comfortable on a new road. Best wishes to all involved. Yes, let higher powers reign.

Whitney's family should be ashamed of themselves for preventing Bobby's daughter from seeing Bobby. Because of their "Christian" holier-than-thou attitude, they contributed to Whitney's problems by not letting her live her life without heavy guilt about every damn thing. Bobby cleaned up HIS act. He should be given some credit for that. Bobbi Kristina was arrested for cocaine possession while in Whitney's care, not Bobby's.

Isn't she 18?? If so, it should be her decision.

The most important thing
is that he tried to see
her. She's of age so he
should just wait and let
her reach out to him.
It is a shame he didn't stay
for the funeral.

You people are ignorant Bobby didnt even bring up the word lawyers..... The question was asked if he will hire lawyers by a stupid TMZ employee that has a pea size brain. This is nothing more than TMZ trying to make a story out of nothing.. ANd you fools on her bashing bobby are the ****ing stupid crack heads. Bobby is the only that acted with class in this whole thing.

Walk away Bobby, let the leeches have her support them, and let her party and drink while underage. You can't stop the trainwreck, look what happened to Whitney with the crappy so called loved ones and friends around her. Sorry, but people who live in the real world know what Whitney has been doing for years, and before you married her. No excuses Bobby, for any of them.

Most of you really need to seek God into your life, with all the "nasty" comments about Whitney and Bobby. You have family membes right? Or are you perfect? It was not the right thing to do, to keep him from sitting with his child. Rembember he was married to Whitney for 14 years. I'm sure she wouldn't have wanted it any other way. Plus they were in God's house. God is about love and forgiveness! He who loves in the a glass out, please throw the first stone! Your comments are heartless and cruel. You never know when it's you or your family's time. I'm sure you wouldn't not want anyone to throw garbage your way, like you have done. RIP Whitney, and Bobby keep it moving to higher grounds. God is love and he does forgive. Blessing to your beautiful daughter.

Dayum Bobby Brown is fugly. Whitney had to be on drugs to get in bed with something that looks like that. She was beautiful and he looks like something under a shoe.

All his kids look ugly as hell too.

Bobby Kristina stands a good chance, if she gets that gap in her teeth fixed.

Bobby Brown do the world a favor and go somewhere with your ugly mug and die.

Maybe the concept of addition might be too hard for the idiot, but she's 18 and no considered an adult. The reason you don't see her is because she wants nothing to do with you. I wonder why?
