Bobby Brown has spoken out in a statement following events at his ex-wife Whitney Houston's funeral that saw the former music star make an abrupt appearance before leaving with his entourage of 10 people, reports CNN.
"My children and I were invited to the funeral of my ex-wife Whitney Houston," Brown claimed later. "We were seated by security and then subsequently asked to move on three separate occasions. I fail to understand why security treated my family this way and continued to ask us and no one else to move. Security then prevented me from attempting to see my daughter Bobbi Kristina," continuing, he added "In light of the events, I gave a kiss to the casket of my ex-wife and departed as I refused to create a scene. ... I will continue to pay my respects to my ex-wife the best way I know how."
Brown's view of events isn't too dissimilar from a source of Cnn's, who claimed "The family approached Bobby and told him that he could stay in the area reserved for family, but that his guests would need to move to a different section to make room for Cissy (Houston) and the rest of the family," to which apparently Brown refused, causing security intervention. "The police told Bobby that he could stay in the area reserved for family, but that his guests needed to move," the friend said. "Bobby said no, and left with all of his guests," added the insider.
