CNN anchor, Piers Morgan, lashed out at Bobby Brown for leaving his ex-wife Whitney Houston's funeral in between and stated that it was "disrespectful".
Brown, who had earlier been banned from attending the service, finally, did so, after a lot of hue and cry. However, he later said he had not been treated well and hence had to leave.
"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 honor 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," Bobby Brown was quoted as saying by allhiphop.com
Reverend Jessie Jackson, who was part of the entire ceremony, defended Bobby Brown.
"He came, he sat in the front row, but they said that was reserved for family of which (he) is a part and a real sense. He is Bobbi-Kristina's father, and Whitney was his wife. To me it seemed they could've accommodated him better than they did," Jackson was quoted as saying.
Whitney Houston's family does not share a good relationship with Bobby Brown.
