ALPHARETTA, Ga. (AP) — R&B singer Bobby Brown emerged from the funeral of his daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown, staring toward the ground before lifting his head up and briefly gazing at the sky.

Sporting a black dress shirt, the grieving Brown was one of the first to exit the tension-filled private service for Bobbi Kristina on Saturday at the St. James United Methodist Church in Alpharetta, just north of Atlanta. Twenty-two-year-old Bobbi Kristina was the only child between Brown and the late megastar singer Whitney Houston.

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

Several celebrities showed up for the funeral including filmmaker Tyler Perry, Grammy-winning R&B singer Monica and Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed.

In the middle of the service Bobby Brown’s sister Leolah Brown walked out of the church and spoke to reporters gathered outside. She said she was angry because Pat Houston was speaking at the funeral. Pat Houston is the sister-in-law and former manager for the late Whitney Houston.

“I told her that Whitney is going to haunt her from the grave,” Leolah Brown told reporters outside the church.

She suggested that the feud between the Houstons and the Browns was far from over.

“It’s just getting started,” she said before going back inside the church.

An email to the Houston family rep was not returned.

For years, there’s been a longstanding rift between the families of the young woman’s famous mother and father. Bobby Brown briefly appeared at Houston’s funeral three years ago, saying he and his children were seated but asked repeatedly to move. Brown said he left because he didn’t want to create a scene, but was upset.

Bobbi Kristina’s death was grimly similar to the way her mother had died three years earlier.

Houston’s assistant found the singer’s lifeless body face-down in a foot of water in her bathtub at the Beverly Hilton Hotel just before the Grammy Awards in 2012. Authorities found prescription drugs in the suite, and evidence of heart disease and cocaine in her body, but determined her death was an accidental drowning.

Bobbi Kristina was found in the townhome she shared with Nick Gordon, an orphan three years older, whom Houston had raised as her own. Bobbi Kristina referred to him as her husband. A police report earlier this year described the incident as a drowning, and authorities are investigating her death.

Relations between Gordon and other relatives have soured over the past few years, especially after Bobbi Kristina was hospitalized. A protective order barred him from being within 200 feet of Pat Houston. And a feud erupted over whether Gordon could visit Bobbi Kristina while she stayed in the hospital.

Fulton County District Attorney Paul Howard said he and his office are interested in reviewing the investigative file to determine whether any charges will be filed.

Leolah Brown said she believes Gordon was involved in the death of her niece.

    It don’t make no DAMN SENSE that even at her final services, she still couldn’t get no DAMN PEACE. The family ought to be ashamed of themselves; CAN’T THIS CHILD JUST FINALLY GET SOME PEACE!!!!!!!

  2. The souls of Bobbi and Whitney cry out for the truth in their “accidental” drownings, and for the government “authorities” to do their job instead of the usual cover-ups and sloppy investigations of these mysterious and suspicious deaths. Maybe we should fire the LA coroner and Medical Examiner and bring in Quincy and Columbo to solve these cases? For starters, require EVERYONE with “means, motive, and opportunity” to submit to independent polygraph exams and questioning while being administered sodium pentathol, aka “truth serum.” If they refuse, we will have an idea who murdered Whitney and Bobbi. It was over money and control of Whitney’s estate, to which Bobbi was the SOLE heir.

      Pat Houston is dangerous and she seemed out Whitney early in her career and preyed on her for her life ! Something is wrong here and Bobbi Kristina did not like Pat Houston ! That woman is a black widow and ppl come up dead around her ! Next it will be Whitney’s brother ! She and her brother are after Whitney’s estate and she will knock off anyone that gets in her way ! She is dangerous ! She befriended Whitney and lured her into a web of lies and deceit but Her fate will find her out ! It’s just too bad that two beautiful angels lost their lives as a result of this betrayal !

    She left the funeral to speak and spoke to reporters! That could have waited until after the funeral. . Why do we always find it necessary to air our dirty laundry in public?

  4. That’s part of the problem. People want to send other folks to the prayer chambers while they steal and run their schemes. The bible says to Watch and Pray. #KEEP A EYE ON PAT!

    It’s a shame her dad, half siblings and grandmother can be lifted in Prayer, love and support. This is the last thing they can do for her. Nonsense has to over shadows her needs. Tragedy continues..

  6. Aunite Leolah clapped back at Pat’s tail. She tried it, by asking people to send money to HER foundation, if that wasn’t low down I don’t know what is. Why not direct people to Whitney’s foundation??? She think she is slick. At some time in life you need a good ole Auntie like Leolah. She warned BK about Pat and Nick and told her if she didn’t be careful this would happpen. She was right.

  7. She planned it, looking for attention. Go away nobody ever hear of you before, just because she’s Bobbi Brown’s sister doesn’t make her relevant.

  8. Nevert heard of her nor was her name ever mentioned by any of them. She’s nuts and won’t get a dime of the money and estate.

    This is a circus, auntie sit down and have respect to the home going, this isn’t about you and want you feel. I hate when ppl make everything about them. When you pass (auntie) we let it be about you.

  10. It’s sad about Bobbi Kristina but now everything Bobby Brown had with Whitney is gone he need to move ahead with his life with his wife and new baby and leave the Houston ‘s and the Brown’s along, it’s all about money for both…

    • Latashea on said:

  11. Linda on said:

    Leolah Brown showed a lack of respect for the late Bobbi Kristina Brown. Whatever issues she has with Pat Houston, bringing them up at this young ladies funeral was not the place to do this!!!!

    Leolah needs to go sit down and stfu!!!!!

  13. Leolah should be shame of her self for acting out that was not the place or time to act out if the Brown family is upset that’s ok but they will have they say but not that girl funeral let that child rest in peace she never gotten any on earth now she able to rest
