Bobbi Kristina Brown funeral rekindles old family feud
Bobby Brown's sister walked out of church service because Whitney Houston's former manager was speaking
Old wounds were opened at the funeral today for Bobbi Kristina Brown, the daughter of R&B singers Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown.
Leolah Brown, the sister of Bobby, walked out of the St. James United Methodist Church in Alpharetta, Ga., and told reporters she was angry because Pat Houston, the sister-in-law and former manager for the late Whitney, was speaking at the funeral.
"I told her that Whitney is going to haunt her from the grave," Leolah told reporters outside the church.
She said the feud between the Houstons and the Browns was far from over.
"It's just getting started," she said.
Bobbi Kristina died July 26, about six months after she was found unconscious in a bathtub at her home.
Grammy-winning R&B singer Monica attended the service. Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed was also seen entering the church.
Alpharetta police said they were assisted by more than a dozen state troopers to manage traffic and shut down lanes to accommodate parking around the church where the service is being held.
Eight police motorcycles escorted three stretch limousines carrying mourners to the church ahead of the service. A procession of dozens of cars followed.
Brown and Houston were already divorced when Houston died in a hotel bathtub in 2012. Bobbi Kristina was her only child.
