Bobbi Kristina Brown’s aunt Leolah Brown is opening up about leaving her niece’s funeral service early, saying that she became upset because her deceased relative was “surrounded by people that cared nothing” about her during the service.
“Krissy was surrounded by people that cared nothing, nothing for her,” Brown tells Inside Edition in an interview airing Wednesday. “They didn’t care about her, just like they didn’t care about Whitney.”
Brown said she decided to leave the service, which was held Aug. 1 in Alpharetta, Georgia, after Bobbi Kristina’s aunt Pat Houston — with whom Leolah has had a very public feud — approached the podium at the service.
“I got up and when I saw Pat making her way to the podium to speak, I turned and looked at Pat and I said, ‘This is wrong. You know you’re wrong for this,'” Brown told Inside Edition’s Diane McInerney. “I said, ‘Whitney will haunt you from the grave.'”
She added, “The whole setup of the funeral was wrong. Krissy has a lot of nephews who were not allowed to be pallbearers. The way the program was set up, Pat was being biased. I walked out a little early because I couldn’t take it anymore.”
Pat Houston isn’t the only one who drew Brown’s wrath during the interview. She also took aim at Bobbi Kristina’s boyfriend Nick Gordon, flat-out claiming that Gordon “murdered” her niece.
“Nick murdered Bobbi Kristina,” Brown said. “I think when Nick gets arrested — I think everything will fall like dominoes.”
Bobbi Kristina Brown died at age 22 in July, after being found face-down and unresponsive in the bathtub of her Georgia home. She spent six months fighting for her life, much of that time in a coma.
A lawsuit has been filed against Gordon, claiming that he was physically abusive to Bobbi Kristina and gave her a “toxic cocktail” in the time leading up to her death. Gordon has not been charged with a crime, and his lawyer has denied the claims in the lawsuit.
Leolah Brown has frequently targeted Pat Houston. In late July, Brown accused Houston of using her niece’s name for “personal gain,” and for asking the public to donate money to her foundation on behalf of the late Bobbi Kristina.
“[T]here is much evil hidden behind this foundation,” Brown wrote on Facebook.
