With reports circulating that Bobby Brown left the funeral of his ex-wife Whitney Houston earlier today after security was unable to seat his 9-person entourage, Bobby has released a statement elaborating on the circumstances surrounding the incident. According to Bobby, security asked him to move three times and refused to let him see his daughter, Bobbi Kristina.

"My children and I were invited to the funeral of my ex-wife Whitney Houston," Bobby said in a statement. "We were seated by security and then subsequently asked to move on three separate occasions. I fail to understand why security treated my family this way and continue to ask us and no one else to move. Security then prevented me from attempting to see my daughter Bobbi Kristina."

He continued, "In light of the events, I gave a kiss to the casket of my ex-wife and departed as I refused to create a scene. My children are completely distraught over the events. This was a day to honor Whitney. I doubt Whitney would have wanted this to occur. I will continue to pay my respects to my ex-wife the best way I know how."
