Leolah Brown, the sister of Bobby Brown, walked out of the funeral for her niece, Bobbi Kristina, Saturday afternoon to speak to reporters waiting outside St. James United Methodist Church in Alpharetta, Ga.
She said she left during the eulogy given by Pat Houston, the sister-in-law and former manager for Bobbi Kristina’s superstar mother, Whitney Houston.
“I told her that Whitney is going to haunt her from the grave,” she told the media, adding that the funeral between the Brown and Houston sides of the the family was “just getting started.”
Other funeral attendees told TMZ that Brown was escorted out by security when she interrupted Houston at the beginning of her speech.
Prior to the funeral, Brown expressed anger over the invitation, which encouraged guests to contribute to a foundation run by Houston in lieu of sending flowers.
The private ceremony came nearly six months after the only child of Grammy winnerWhitney Houston and fellow singer Bobby Brown was found facedown and unconscious in her bathtub. She never regained consciousness to tell anyone what happened that morning.
