R&B Icon Bobby Brown has really been going through hell after the death of his Ex wife Whitney Houston. Sources say that Whitney’s family blames Bobby for her drug addiction and how her life went down hill after the two got married. Brown sent me a statement commenting on the health of his daughter Bobbi-Kristina:

“My daughter Bobbi-Kristina is doing much better. We continue to provide love and support to Bobbi-Kristina. She is dealing with the tragedy of her mother death and would prefer to do it outside of the public eye. I ask again that our privacy be respected.” Said Bobby Brown.

Whitney’s family is saying “no” to the thoughts of holding a public memorial for the late singer in her hometown of Newark, New Jersey.  A rep for Newark Mayor Cory Booker tells TMZ the family specifically asked the city not to plan a memorial event and that it would comply with the Houston family’s wishes.  Earlier reports had suggested that a public viewing would take place at the Prudential Center in Newark on Friday, but the Mayor’s rep says the family has no such plan in place.

Instead, family and friends will gather for a private funeral for the music superstar on Saturday.  The invitation-only service will be held at the New Hope Baptist Church in Newark  –  exactly one week to the day Houston was found dead in her room at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California.  Whitney Houston was 48. So sad!!!
