In part two of his interview with the Today Show, Bobby Brown opened up about the drama surrounding Whitney Houston’s funeral, claiming he felt “disrespected” when he was asked to not sit with the Houston family.
The New Edition singer also went on to say that people are making assumptions about his 19-year-old daughter Bobbi Kristina who has been linked to drug use and spoke of the late Whitney Houston’s family cutting all ties with him.
Bobbi also revealed that he is 7 years clean of narcotics.
On Whitney’s funeral: They definitely wanted me there. It’s not like I wasn’t invited. I’m just coming to pay respects to my ex-wife. They would not hold me from…that’s not the type of family the Houston family is. There a great family and I appreciate them very much.
On the drama at Whitney’s funeral: Whoever the security was there asked me to have my, what they called my “entourage” which was my children sit somewhere else. We had to sit a part and I was not willing to sit away from my children. After the third time of them coming to me I felt a little disrespected by the security. I decided it would be best if I just left. I kissed the casket and me and my children left the building.
On reaching out to Cissy Houston: I tried to reach out to Whitney’s mom but I haven’t been able to reach her yet. I know she’s going through it deeply. Deeply going through it. She lost her only daughter. I love her dearly and I’m here anytime she wants to talk.
On how Bobbi Kristina is handling Whitney’s passing: She’s a strong girl. Her mom taught her well. I think we raised her really well. She’s fine. She knows that her mom is gone and she knows that she has to live.
On Bobbi Kristina doing drugs: I will always be worried about that but right now? No because I know what she is actually doing. I think people are making assumptions of what my daughter is and how strong she is. People tend to want to control strong-willed people and that’s what I see. I am her father and she talks to me about everything.
