Whitney Houston’s funeral: Bobby Brown, Mel Gibson and Kevin Costner’s tribute to Kevin Costner
WHITNEY Houston’s funeral starred Bobby Brown in the role of chief newsworthy event. TMZ reports that the New Edition singer and former Mr Whitney Bobby wanted to sit next to his daughter Bobbi Kristina in the front row. But Whitney’s relatives were not in agreement. So. After 15 minutes, he left, taking with him his NINE guests.
This was Whitney Houston’s funeral, which whilst being a private one, was also streamed live.
Bobby tells ABC News that security caused the drama and so he left before a scene went down.
“My children and I were invited to the funeral of my ex-wife Whitney Houston. We were seated by security and then subsequently asked to move on three separate occasions. I fail to understand why security treated my family this way and continue to ask us and no one else to move. Security then prevented me from attempting to see my daughter Bobbi-Kristina. In light of the events, I gave a kiss to the casket of my ex-wife and departed as I refused to create a scene. My children are completely distraught over the events. This was a day to honor Whitney. I doubt Whitney would have wanted this to occur. I will continue to pay my respects to my ex-wife the best way I know how.”
Feel that respect. You could alosmy botte it and sell it as Whitney – the Scent of Respect, possibly with a video game tie-in.
Of course, it’s hard not to sympathise with Brown. The funeral do saw room made for Mel Gibson. That’s Mel Gibson who once, reportedly, sung: “I hope you get raped by a pack of niggers.” And Kevin Costner, who spoke some nice words laced with a eulogy to Kevin Costner, who chose her to perform in The Bodyguard. Kevin, here’s to you:
