Bobbi Kristina Brown’s relatives and friends were spotted arriving at the 22-year-old’s wake on Friday ahead of her funeral, which will be taking place today. The ‘Sweet 16’ themed ceremony that is being overseen by aunt Pat Houston, has been a source of dispute within the family amid arguments over Bobbi’s $20 million inheritance. Dionne Warwick, Whitney Houston’s cousin, who oversaw the late singer’s funeral has even threatened to boycott the event.
Mourners arrived at Murray Brothers Funeral Home on Friday afternoon for the wake before she is laid to rest on Saturday. Soon after the Houstons left the funeral home, the Brown family arrived to view Bobbi Kristina’s body, causing speculation that the families had planned to avoid each other. Later, after the Houston clan left, Bobby Brown entered the funeral home with his wife, Alicia Etheredge, son Bobby Brown Jr, and his sisters, Tina Brown and Leolah Brown.
As previously reported by several media outlets, Dionne Warwick strongly disapproves of Pat Houston’s management of Krissi’s ‘sweet sixteen themed’ funeral which is due to take place in Alpharetta, Georgia, on Saturday. A source that spoke to Daily Mail Online the source said:
‘Dionne is planning a trip and threatening to not attend the funeral because Pat Houston is taking over even though she should be making decisions with Bobby and not doing it on her own. Dionne resents Pat acting like she is the head of the Houston family when in reality she married into the family. Also everyone knows that Bobbi Kristina and Pat didn’t get along well after her mother died because she was trying to run her life and tell her what to do with the money she inherited.
‘Pat wants to have a “sweet sixteen” theme funeral but Dionne feels that is stupid and disrespectful to Bobbi Kristina.’
Bobbi Kristina died on Sunday age 22 six months after she was found face down and unresponsive in the bath-tub of the Roswell, Georgia, home she shared with then boyfriend, Nick Gordon, 25. Click here if you missed it!
