In the words of Al Sharpton “I wish ya’ll would leave Bobby Brown alone.” He said that to CNN’s Don Lemon today after he asked Rev. Al about Bobby Brown’s exit from Whitney Houston. I think Al was perturbed that Don had the audacity to ask about Bobby Brown when this day is about Whitney. But I digress, this post is actually about Bobby, as it always is.
Yes its true, Bobby did blazonly leave the funeral before it got started but I don’t think it was his fault. He says security was harassing him. Read on to find out how Bobby described the situation.
CNN article exerpt:
“My children and I were invited to the funeral of my ex-wife Whitney Houston,” Brown later said in a news statement. “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 continue to ask us and no one else to move. Security then prevented me from attempting to see my daughter Bobbi Kristina.
“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,” the statement said.
Describing what happened at the service, the Rev. Al Sharpton posted on his Twitter account: “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.”
Please let Bobby grieve. Just let him grieve.
