Cissy Houston and Bobby Brown, grandmother and father, respectively, of the late Bobbi Kristina Brown, are reportedly battling it out over the guest list for Bobbi Kristina’s funeral. Scheduled for Saturday at the St. James United Methodist Church in Alpharetta, Georgia, the 22-year-old's funeral is by invite-only, and it’s apparently those invites that have the Houston and Brown families at odds with one another again.
Bobbi Kristina Brown will be buried in New Jersey on Monday, beside her mom Whitney Houston. This likely provides a bit of solace for Cissy Houston, who lives in New Jersey and will be able to visit both her daughter and granddaughter’s graves when she feels the need to do so.
Cissy Houston has apparently come down hard on Bobby Brown regarding certain members of his family that she doesn’t want attending her granddaughter's funeral.
“Family is supposed to come together at this time and you would think now that Krissy is gone they would. But it’s not the case,” a source says of Bobby Brown and Cissy Houston. “Bobbi hasn’t been gone 24 hours and Cissy [Houston] already making it clear to Bobby [Brown] that she doesn’t want certain members of his family at her wake or funeral. She doesn’t anyone trying to make a quick buck off selling pictures of Bobbi in a coffin like someone did to Whitney.”

A picture of Whitney Houston taken in the funeral home following her passing was sold and published in numerous media outlets after her death. Cissy Houston doesn't want a repeat of that travesty.
“Cissy wants this process to be peaceful, respectful and to handled with dignity. She’s made her demands clear to Bobby and she’s enlisting the help of her Houston family members to support her in this decision,” the source adds.
Who do you suppose will wind up invited to Bobbi Kristina Brown’s funeral? Will the guest list include celebrities and dignitaries or simply close friends and family members? How many of Bobby Brown's family members will be invited? And what about Nick Gordon?
It will certainly be interesting to see if Bobby Brown and Cissy Houston are civil to one another at Bobbi Kristina's funeral.

Even though Bobbi Kristina’s funeral won’t be televised like Whitney Houston’s was, the press will definitely be outside, reporting on the comings and goings of family members and guests. Do you expect a media circus to ensue on the days of Bobbi Kristina's funeral and burial?
