With funeral preparations being put in place for Bobbi Kristina Brown, sources say that a member of the Houston family will try to sell a picture of her body to the media.

Concerned family members fear a repeat of what happened at the funeral of Bobbi Kristina's mother when a photo of Whitney Houston's body in the casket appeared on the front cover of The National Enquirer, according to TMZ.

The Brown family is said to be on high alert in a bid to avoid the same thing happening after a private wake held on Saturday in Atlanta, Georgia.

Pat Houston, Bobbi's aunt is managing the funeral and the event is 'Sweet 16-themed', according to Entertainment Tonight. However, there have been arguments over Bobbi's $20 million inheritance, with Dionne Warwick, Whitney Houston's cousin threatening to boycott the service.

TMZ also reported that all guests to the wake service had to produce a government-issued ID at the door.

Rather than bring flowers, guests were asked to make a donation to The Marion P Foundation, a charity run by Bobbi's aunt Pat Houston that helps troubled teenagers.

However, Bobbi Kristina's aunt Leolah has criticised this request on Facebook, begging people not to send "ONE RED CENT" to Pat.

This exposes the feud between the Browns and the Houstons, with Leolah also claiming that Pat is "not the sweet quiet person that she's tried so hard to make people believe".

Family and friends gathered to remember Bobbi Kristina in a private funeral of which details have been closely guarded by the Brown and Houston families, their lawyers and friends, including filmmaker Tyler Perry.

Media reports indicate the funeral will be at 11am (local time) on Saturday at St James United Methodist Church in Alpharetta, north of Atlanta.

Bobbi Kristina died in hospice care on 26 July, about six months after she was found face down and unresponsive in a bathtub in her Atlanta home.

She shared the home with Nick Gordon, whom she called her husband. He has reportedly emailed the Brown family, asking them if he can also attend the funeral.
