Bobbi Kristina Brown Funeral: Mourners Gather In Georgia

Listen to article

Mourners are gathering in Georgia for the funeral of Bobbi Kristina Brown, the only child of the late singer Whitney Houston.

The 22-year-old died in a hospice last Sunday, six months after she was found face down and unresponsive in a bathtub.

She is expected to be buried beside her mother at a cemetery in New Jersey.

Houston drowned in a bathtub at a Los Angeles hotel in 2012 on the eve of the Grammy Awards ceremony.

Brown’s funeral service at St James United Methodist Church in Alpharetta is closed to the public.

An initial autopsy found no obvious underlying cause for her death.

She was discovered face down in a bath at the Atlanta home she shared with her partner Nick Gordon in January.

Frosty relations between Mr Gordon and Brown’s relatives came to a head in June, when her court-appointed representative sued him, accusing him of misrepresenting his relationship with her.

He was alleged to have transferred $11,000 (£7,091) of Brown’s funds into an account controlled solely by him while she was in hospital but was never charged.

Brown began performing with her mother in 1999, singing duets of My Love is Your Love and recording Little Drummer Boy for a holiday album in 2003.

She was the only daughter of Houston and R&B singer Bobby Brown.

In a statement after her death, Bobby Brown said the family must find a way to honour his daughter’s memory.

“Krissy was and is an angel,” he said. “I am completely numb at this time.”
