Whitney Houston's Attorney: Bobby Brown Violated Agreement on Bobbi Kristina, Seating


By Robert "Rob" Redding Jr.

ATLANTA, Feb. 21, 2012, 9:30 a.m. - Dogged by negative publicity generated from singer Bobby Brown leaving the funeral of the late singer and actor Whitney Houston, an attorney for the Houston's family says that Brown breached an agreement by trying to talk to the former couple's daughter during the funeral.

Attorney Mark Trigg says that Brown, who was married to Houston for almost 20 years, violated a seating and separation order.

Triggs said that Brown was suppose to sit in the first three rows with Houston's family and not his children, who are not Houston's. The attorney said that Brown's children were told that they must sit close to the back with their uncle.

Security "discretely, politely, respectfully asked the children to sit with their uncle," Trigg told WVEE-FM in Atlanta.

He said Brown also had agreed not to try to speak with Bobbi Kristina Houston Brown during the service but tried to anyway.

"The other part of our agreement was if Bobbi Kristina reached out to Bobby then security was certainly going to make sure that happened. If she did not initiate that contact then he was not to reach out for her ..unfortunately that did not happen. He was asked to return to his seat. He decide that he wanted to leave the service."

Brown had said that he has been asked to move several times during the service by security, which he said harassed his family during Saturday's invitation only funeral.

Brown had been defended by the Revs. Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton who both said that Brown had done nothing wrong.

Brown was not available to comment at press time.

Houston, a former admitted drug addict, died earlier this month one day before the Grammy Awards. The cause of her death has not been released.
