Whitney Houston’s death has been mourned by countless fans worldwide, but only close family will get to attend the singer’s funeral.
And by close family we don’t mean Bobby Brown.
Houston’s family has requested that the R&B boy bander-turned-bad boy not attend a private memorial service for the singer on Saturday.
That’s the word ’round the blogosphere this Tuesday evening.
The service will be held at Whitney’s childhood church in New Jersey, and insiders explain that Houston’s rowdy ex will most likely be turned away if he tries to show up. The “I Will Always Love You” singer suffered a major career setback after admitting that she’d abused drugs during her tumultuous 14 year marriage to Brown.
TMZ cites sources close to the “Don’t Be Cruel” hit-maker say he hasn’t been able to contact Bobbi Kristina since arriving in Los Angeles on Sunday night — this despite placing several phone calls and making an attempt to see her.
In other news on Houston’s death, a recent report also claimed the singer’s doctors will be investigated to ensure Houston did not illegally obtain prescription pills.
