The Bobbi Kristina Brown funeral was rife with tension. The Browns and Houstons are at war, and sadly it’s to be expected. Some may believe that it’s due to the tragic manner in which Bobbi Kristina died. Others fear the claws are coming out over the millions she left behind. Whatever the case, there is no longer a reason to put aside differences as Whitney Houston’s 22-year-old daughter is dead.
Despite the presence of family, celebrity guests, and members of the media, there was no desire to keep hard feelings “in-house.” When Pat Houston moved toward the podium to speak, Leolah Brown began to insult and heckle her. It was filmmaker and family friend Tyler Perry who escorted the angry relative from the service.
However, she wasn’t done.

Leolah and others in the Brown family resent Pat’s control over Bobbi Kristina’s inheritance. The main reason is an insistence that she is chiefly or entirely responsible for her niece’s death. It’s a sentiment shared previously by Leolah Brown, and one she made known once again.
The angry aunt told the press that Whitney would “haunt” Pat because of what she’d done.
“Whitney will haunt Pat Houston from the grave. Pat, it’s not over. It has just begun.”
Leolah Brown also insisted that she had “evidence” and knowledge of who Pat Houston “really is.” The distraught woman went as far as to claim that Bobbi Kristina Brown’s aunt is an imposter.
“I have information, I have evidence, I have knowledge of who Pat really is. She is not any relation whatsoever to Krissi; she’s not even a Houston! She’s just being the phony person that she is.”
The threats and claims by the Brown family member strongly suggest that what will follow is a very public and gruesome tug of war over the Bobbi Kristina Brown inheritance. Not only that but with an an ongoing criminal investigation, it’s likely we’ll see even more accusations made to the press.

Nick Gordon, who previously claimed to be married to Bobbi Kristina Brown, was not at the funeral. It was Nick who reportedly found Bobbi Kristina face down in the bathtub. It’s also no secret that more than a few family members blame him for her death. His presence at an already tense affair might have made matters worse.
Do you believe that the hard feelings are about how Bobbi Kristina Brown died… or a fight over money? Share your thoughts below!
