Bobby Brown Absent at her daughter’s burial while Pat and Cissy Houston attend
The New Edition singer was nowhere to be seen as his daughter was laid to rest next to her mother Whitney Houston on Monday, August 3 at Fairview Cemetery.
Her father Bobby Brown was absent from the burial, presumably to be by the side of his wife Alicia Etheredge who was rushed to hospital on Saturday following funeral in Atlanta. Tyler Perry was also absent from the burial.
Motorcycle police could be seen escorting cars to the grave of Bobbi. Cissy sat in the front seat of a car behind her granddaugther’s golden hearse. Pat was accompanied by her daughter Rayah. Fans were standing at the gate holding Bobbi and Whitney’s photos.
Monday’s burial service was also attended by Whitney’s cousin Dionne Warwick and a few of Brown family members. The group stood under a large tent while a bishop and a local minister each delivered prayers and a song was sung. After the-hour long service, they headed to a family member’s house for a gathering.
While family and friends are mourning Bobbi, TMZ reports that the Houstons and the Browns are blaming each other for her death photo which was reportedly sold to a tabloid for $100,000. According to the site, someone snapped the pic of Bobbi lying in her casket at her Friday’s viewing, one day before her funeral at Saint James United Methodist Church in Alpharetta, Georgia.
