Bobby reportedly left New Hope Baptist Church, Newark, New Jersey, the venue of Whitney’s funeral due to some misunderstanding with security personnels over seating arrangement.
According to reports, Bobby was denied seating spaces for all of his 9-man entourage. This development angered the ex-wife of the late singer, which led to him leaving the funeral in anger.
Meanwhile, Bobby later released a statement on why he angrily left the church venue of the funeral. A text of is produced below;
“My children and I were invited to the funeral of my ex-wife Whitney Houston. 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. My children are completely distraught over the events.
This was a day to honor Whitney. I doubt Whitney would have wanted this to occur. I will continue to pay my respects to my ex-wife the best way I know how.”
