Bobby Brown caused a scene at the funeral of Whitney Houston because security resisted admitting his sizable entourage. The Houston family lawyer clarified that this could have been avoided had Brown complied with the agreement he signed before Whitney’s funeral.
Access Atlanta reports that the agreement stated that Brown was to sit with the Houston family and that he would was not to speak to his daughter, Bobbi Kristina, unless she spoke to him first.Mr. Brown broke both of these rules.
The attorney for Whitney Houston’s family suggested Tuesday that a clash between ex-husbandBobby Brown and security at the weekend funeral for the Grammy Award-winning pop singer could have been avoided if Brown had adhered to two agreements made to accommodate him and his family.
One agreement, Atlanta attorney Mark Trigg told V-103’s Frank & Wanda Morning Show, was that Brown, who had been married to Houston for 15 years before their 2007 divorce, would sit with the family at New Hope Baptist Church in Newark, N.J., without others in his entourage.
The other was that Brown would not reach out to his daughter Bobbi Kristina during the four-hour service unless she reached out to him first.
Brown, however, broke both of those conditions and ended up clashing with security staff tasked with seeing that he followed the agreements, Trigg told Frank Ski and co-host Wanda Smith.
“We had a number of discussions prior to the service, and a very clear understanding as to exactly what was suppose to take place at the service,” Trigg told V103.
The face-off, which followed days of speculation over whether Brown was even invited to or would attend the funeral, was covered by the media as much as the memorial itself and at times overshadowed the star-studded service carried live on CNN and other media outlets.
