Fight erupts at Bobbi Brown's funeral

The 22-year-old died last week.

BOBBI BROWN’S FUNERAL did not pass off without incident, after family members became involved in a fight.

Leolah Brown, the sister of Bobby Brown, walked out of the St James United Methodist Church in Alpharetta, Georgia today and said she was angry because Pat Houston was speaking at the funeral.

Houston is the sister-in-law and former manager of the late Whitney Houston.

“I told her that Whitney is going to haunt her from the grave,” Leolah Brown told reporters outside the church.

She suggested that the feud between the Houstons and the Browns was far from over.

“It’s just getting started,” she said.

Bobbi Kristina (22) died on 26 July, about six months after she was found unconscious in a bathtub at her home.

Alpharetta police say they were assisted by more than a dozen state troopers to manage traffic and shut down lanes to accommodate parking around the church where the service is being held.

Brown and Houston were divorced at the time Houston died in a hotel bathtub in 2012. Bobbi Kristina was her only child.
