I voted for,
I didn't even notice and who cares what Bobby Brown does....

At the end of the day,Bobby Brown was just being Bobby Brown.
My guess is that they stilled loved each other, so I'm not mad!

Didn't he have a concert to do,that's why he left early?

I found this article today...


Attorney: Bobby Brown broke agreements at Whitney Houston's funeral


The attorney for Whitney Houston’s family suggested Tuesday that a clash between ex-husband Bobby 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...

He asked to bring two guests, and showed up with the two guests AND his four other children, and the people in charge made a fuss. Why? Did no one expect Whitney's step-children to attend her funeral? They are all adults now - so maybe they were overlooked - but once they showed up, of course they should have been accommodated.

So why was he asked to move four times? That's just silly. Just shift the non-family back a row, and let his kids sit near the front. I'm sure it was a challenge for the organizers, but it sure seems like it could have been handled better.

He's a big personality - and he was grieving - and Bobbi Kristina was refusing to even talk to him - and he was upset - so he made a big grand gesture and kissed the coffin, and then left the event. So what? We all grieve in different ways, and they were married for a long time, and only recently divorced. So what if he didn't stay for the funeral?

Honestly, I think judging someone based the way they grieve is completely inappropriate.
I'd rep you but I used it up on another post.

Agree. I don't like the guy, but people go through all sorts of things when they grieve, and it's not for anyone else to judge. If this were a private funeral, the world wouldn't be weighing in on it. This thing we do in our ever-connected world is just absurd. We track these celebrities as if they owe us some kind of explanation or expected behavior. Yeah, he is kind of a d-bag, and he DID bring it on himself with that stupid reality show. And she DID make some really really really bad choices in her life. But, she's gone. Her kids need to do what they need to do to deal with it. He needs to grow up. And maybe he left because he didn't want the world to see tough ol' bobbie brown crying.

Who knows? When my Dad died, I was so numb I could barely breathe. It took a long time for anyone to see me cry in public about it because it was so huge, so devastating, and so mind-numbing that I couldn't wrap my head around it. It took a toll on me for many years. I couldn't give a rat's patootie what someone else thought of my "grieving pattern." I needed do do what I needed to do to get through it.

Personally, I think we all need to stop the hero worship, turn off the TV when these things are shown, and start demanding that TMZ and all the other vulture shows out there tone it down. If we turn it off, they'll start acting like humans again.

I have really important things to think about. What Bobby did or didn't do is not even in the top 2,000. Whitney's passing was a blip. Sad to lose a wonderful talent, Rest in Peace. That's all.

If the media didn't make every event a spectacle, maybe people would put this in proper perspective.

I think it's wrong they didn't allow his children, Whitney's stepchildren, to sit with him and didn't let him talk to his daughter.

I agree.

When I heard the news about Whitney, I prayed for Cissy and Bobbi K. because one lost a "daughter" and the other lost a "mother". That was all.

Whitney was a great talent...but she was just one of many "women" who died that day -- these women just did not receive any media covergage.
