While Bobby Brown was spotted arriving at Newark’s Hope Baptist Church in New Jersey this morning to attend the funeral of his ex-wife, Whitney Houston, he didn’t stay long.
According to reports, the “Don’t Be Cruel” singer ended up leaving before the services even got underway.
At the current time, it’s unsure if the 43-year-old chose to leave or was asked to hit the exits by Whitney’s family.
Just before he left he was seen consoling a crying man outside the church.
Rev. Al Sharpton tweeted just moments ago, saying, “I am at Whitney’s funeral. I spoke with Bobby Brown trying to calm him down and not distract from the services. Today is about Whitney!”
While some reports say the singer left over a dispute about seating, a source tells TMZ he argued with the family because he wanted to speak during the service, but was denied.
The Insider learned yesterday that Brown hadn’t spoken with his daughter Bobbi Kristina since Whitney’s passing.
Sources say the 19-year-old does not want to speak with her father at this time.
