Bobbi Kristina's Aunt Reveals Her Anger Over Sweet 16-Themed Funeral: 'It's Bizarre!'
Speaking exclusively to INSIDE EDITION, Leolah Brown said she was not impressed with the party organized by Pat Brown.
Bobbi Kristina Brown's aunt Leolah Brown has revealed just how angry she was over her niece's sweet 16-themed funeral.
The 22-year-old passed away in July after she was found face-down in a bathtub in her Roswell, Georgia home in January. After her death, a sweet 16-themed funeral was held because she'd never had a sweet 16 party.
But speaking exclusively to INSIDE EDITION, Leolah Brown - the older sister of Bobbi Kristina's father Bobby Brown - said she was not impressed.
"Of course it's bizarre," she said. "It's crazy! At this time? You want to do a 16, a sweet 16!
After her funeral, friends and family members took a party bus to Pat Houston’s home outside Atlanta. They chanted Bobbi Kristina’s name when they arrived at the party, which was organized by Pat Houston.
Leolah added: "It doesn't make sense to me. A precious life was taken and you have a big party bus in front of your house."
It wasn't the only time she was at odds with Pat, who is the wife of Whitney Houston's brother. During Bobbi Kristina's funeral, Leolah stormed out of the service after arguing with Pat.
"The whole set up of the funeral was wrong," Leolah explained to INSIDE EDITION. "Krissy was surrounded by people that cared, nothing, nothing for her... They didn't care about her, just like they didn't care about Whitney."
She went on: "I got up, and when I saw Pat making her way to the podium to speak, I turned and I looked at Pat and I said, "This is wrong, you know you're wrong for this." I said, "Whitney will haunt you from the grave."'
She added: "Krissy has a lot of nephews who were not allowed to be pallbearers... I walked out a little early, because I couldn't take any more."
Bobbi Kristina was eventually buried beside her mother, Whitney Houston, in New Jersey. Bobbi Kristina was found face-down in a bathtub nearly three years after Whitney died in eerily similar circumstances.
Leolah Brown believes it's not just a coincidence. She says she believes both women were murdered.
"At some point we have to wake up and realize this is too close, too similar... mother, daugther, both in bathtubs, things happening around them, not once, but twice," she said. "Something is very, very wrong with that picture."
She said she believes Gordon is to blame for her niece's death.
“Nick murdered Bobbi Kristina,” she said. “When Nick gets arrested, I think everything will fall like dominoes.”
Nick Gordon has never been arrested or charged in connection with Bobbi Kristina’s death. He has denied any wrongdoing.
Following her death, a family member sold an image of her in her casket to a tabloid magazine - but Leolah denied she had anything to do with it.
"I would never do nothing like that," she said.
