Dispute Breaks Out At Bobbi Kristina’s Funeral, Aunt Removed From The Service
Leolah Brown was asked to leave Bobbi Kristina's funeral after interrupting remarks from Pat Houston.
Bobbi Kristina Brown was laid to rest on Saturday (Aug. 1), but her services were unfortunately marred by tensions between the Houston and Brown families.
During the memorial, which took place at St. James United Methodist Church in Georgia, remarks by Pat Houston were interrupted by Bobbi Kristina’s aunt Leolah Brown, Yahoo! reports. Pat, sister-in-law and former manager to Whitney Houston has been in a longstanding dispute with Leolah. While speaking at the service, Leolah screamed that “Whitney is going to haunt her from the grave." She was reportedly removed from the service thereafter.
Earlier this week (July 19), Leolah took to her Facebook page to accuse Pat of attempting to monetize off of Bobbi Kristina’s death by requesting donations to her foundation. She wrote a message urging her followers not to send money:
PLEASE DO NOT SEND ONE RED CENT! As she has not even sat down & spoken to my brother Bobby, who is Bobbi Kristina's father, about this. This is part of the proof that her intentions are very ill. This is nothing more than another scheme of Pat Houston, to try to get money put into her account for her personal gain. There is much evil hidden behind this foundation.
Outside of the church, Leolah spoke to several reporters about her remarks, and assured that the dispute is not over.
"It's just getting started," she said, according to Billboard.
