According to TMZ, Bobby Brown got into an argument with Whitney Houston's family before the funeral started today. He allegedly tried to bring nine people to the private event in Newark, N.J., and the family would not allow it. His entourage was asked to leave, and Bobby left with them, appearing visibly upset.
Al Sharpton tweeted:
I am at Whitney's funeral. I spoke with Bobby Brown trying to calm him down and not distract from the services. Today is about Whitney!— Reverend Al Sharpton (@TheRevAl) February 18, 2012
Others in attendance at the funeral include Stevie Wonder, Kevin Costner, Clive David, Tyler Perry, and Jesse Jackson. The event is streaming live here.
