After numerous reports surfaced of Leolah Brown being kicked out of the funeral service held for Bobbi Kristina Brown in Alpharetta, Georgia last Saturday, Leolah is taking a stand against the rumors, claiming that she left on her own accord.
Entertainment Tonight (ET) reports that Leolah, angered by the accusations of being thrown out of her niece’s funeral, took to Facebook to squash the rumors. She indicated that not only was she not thrown out, but that actor Tyler Perry didn’t ask her to leave, despite numerous reports stating that he did.
“As far as me being “put” out of the funeral with the help of Tyler Perry…??? That is not true. I will tell the true story and how it “really” went down. As it was and as it will always be; Tyler Perry is loved & respected by me and he is also considered a friend of mine from this day on.”
Last week, several news reports stated that Tyler intervened during the funeral service when Leolah verbally attacked Pat Houston, Bobbi Kristina’s aunt. After yelling “How dare you!” Leolah told Pat that Whitney Houston would haunt her from the grave.
“She will haunt her. Pat, it’s not over. It has just begun. It has just begun.”
Apparently the animosity that Leolah has toward Pat is still brewing. Leolah, who refers to Pat by her husband’s original last name, Garland, wrote that truth about Pat will soon come to the surface.
“Lastly, Please be aware that this IS NOT OVER with Mrs. Pat Watson Garland and I. There is so much more to come. The world will hear THE TRUTH by Me. Make no mistake about that. BOBBI KRISTINA AND WHITNEY HAVE NOT LEFT US IN VAIN!”
Leolah refuses to refer to Pat as a Houston because Whitney Houston’s older half-brother Gary, who is also Pat’s husband, was born as Gary Garland. However, he legally changed his last name to Houston decades ago.
“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.”
It’s still uncertain what evidence Leolah has against Pat or if any evidence exists at all, but last week, she accused Pat of seeking out donations for Bobbi Kristina’s funeral and burial costs under the name of The Marion P. Foundation.
After her funeral service in Alpharetta, Bobbi Kristina Brown was buried on August 3rd in New Jersey, next to her mother, the late Whitney Houston.
