Just when we thought all was good between Bobby Brown and Whitney Houston’s family — there are reports that the New Edition singer stormed out of the New Hope Baptist Church on Saturday afternoon during Whitney’s funeral.
According to the Star-Ledger, Brown brought an entourage of nine people with him and wanted them to sit with him in the family section.
“They were asked to leave,” the person said, referring to the entourage. Brown was not asked to leave, but “he left with the other people,” the source says.
Rev Al Sharpton apparently was trying to intervene — here’s what he tweeted:
UPDATE: Rev. Jesse Jackson tells CNN that Bobby had sat down in the front row with his entourage and ushers told him the area was ‘reserved for family” and he was asked to leave. Jackson points out that Bobby & Whitney’s daughter, Bobbi Kristina, did not see the incident. Jackson says he tried to get Bobby to stay.
UPDATE #2: Bobby Brown released this statement to the press.
