Bobby Brown did indeed attend ex-wife Whitney Houston‘s funeral Saturday in Newark — but jaws dropped when he was spotted leaving at the beginning of the service, shortly after he paid his respect at Whitney’s coffin.
Why the abrupt exit? Bobby, who reportedly had been banned from the service by the Houston family initially, arrived with a nine-person entourage, and wanted everyone to sit together. But he was only granted two additional seats — not 9! Plus, he wanted to sit next to his daughter Bobbi Kristina.
Bobby got into a argument with Whitney’s family, and Rev. Jesse Jackson tried to patch up things, but no dice. So he left.
