*Bobbi Kristina Brown’s aunt Pat Houston is being shunned by her family after reports she asked the public to help fund a Sweet 16-themed funeral for her niece, reports Page Six.
Bobby Brown’s sister Leolah unleashed a Facebook rant to ask the public not to donate “one red cent” to Pat’s Marion P Foundation.
“The Brown family has just learned that Marion Patricia Houston, AKA: Pat Houston, is asking for the public to send money to her foundation (The Marion P Foundation) on behalf of my niece Bobbi Kristina,” she wrote. “PLEASE keep your money in your pockets and give absolutely NOTHING to the Marion P foundation. Unless you don’t mind supporting such an evil and dirty foundation!”
Leolah Brown has popped off before at Pat Houston, who is married to Whitney Houston’s brother Gary, saying she was never liked by the singer or Bobbi Kristina and that she is only interested in money.
“You notice, no matter what I say, Pat never says anything following, to at least defend herself?” Leolah Brown said. “If what I was saying was untrue or just talking for no reason at all … why would she not defend herself if I am wrong? I will tell you. Because SHE CANNOT talk back to truth. She has no leg to stand on.”
All this comes as the Daily Mail reports that Dionne Warwick, Whitney Houston’s cousin, has threatened to boycott the funeral because of Pat Houston’s plan for the Sweet 16 theme.
“Dionne is planning a trip and threatening to not attend the funeral because Pat Houston is taking over even though she should be making decisions with Bobby and not doing it on her own,” a source told the Mail. “Dionne resents Pat acting like she is the head of the Houston family when in reality she married into the family. Also everyone knows that Bobbi Kristina and Pat didn’t get along well after her mother died because she was trying to run her life and tell her what to do with the money she inherited.
“Pat wants to have a Sweet 16-theme funeral but Dionne feels that is stupid and disrespectful to Bobbi Kristina,” the source said.
Bobbi Kristina died on Sunday at the age of 22, six months after she was found face down and unresponsive in a bathtub of the home she shared with then-boyfriend Nick Gordon, 25.
Gordon is now a person of interest to investigators attempting to piece together the events that led to Bobbi Kristina’s untimely death.
