UPDATE:  Though Bobbi Kristina Brown is being laid to rest, peace for her family is not coming easily. Word is a feud broke out at the private funeral services Saturday morning.

According to CBS, her aunt Leolah Brown left the memorial upset because her other aunt and co-guardian, Pat Houston was speaking. "I told her that Whitney is going to haunt her from the grave," Leolah, Bobby Brown's sister told reporters outside the church. The beef, she said, "It's just getting started."

Leolah has called out Houston before, accusing her of "trying to inherit" Bobbi Kristina's money "for personal gain."



Almost a week after her death was confirmed, Bobbi Kristina Brown is being put to rest in Atlanta, Georgia. Though the service will be private and closed to the public, onlookers and admirers of the young scion are expected to gather in drones outside of the church to pay their respects.

Reuters reports that the homegoing service is set to take place at 11:00 a.m. at the St. James United Methodist Church in Alpharetta, a northern suburb of Atlanta, Georgia.


The only child of the late Whitney Houston died last Sunday at an area hospice, six months after suffering brain damage caused by a still unexplained incident that left her unconscious in her bathtub. Bobbi Kristina was found face-down in the tub by her partner and friend. She was 22.

She is expected to be buried on Monday (August 3) beside her mother at a New Jersey cemetery.

While the cause of her still unexplained death is currently under review by the Fulton County District Attorney's Office, the initial autopsy, which was conducted this week, found no blatant underlying cause. A $10 million civil lawsuit was filed in June, however, accusing Brown's boyfriend, Nick Gordon, of causing her "life-threatening injuries" and illegally managing her bank account while she was still in a coma.
