Bobby Brown Explains Whitney Funeral Walkout
Singer says he and his party were hassled by security...
The pop star, 43, left with his nine-person entourage at the beginning of the service, which took place in Newark, New Jersey.
He later issued a statement to explain, saying: "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 honour 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."
There has been no response from Whitney's family.
