*Nick Gordon is reportedly pleading with the family of Bobbi Kristina Brown for admission to attend her funeral, according to RadarOnline.

Gordon told Bobby Brown in an email, according to online reports, “I loved Krissi with all my heart and I am destroyed that she is gone and I need to say goodbye.”

He also begged the organizer of the event, Pat Houston, for her to allow him to attend Saturday’s service.

“I’m begging you both to please put your differences aside and allow me this chance,” he wrote. “Krissi loved me very much and she would want me there.”

Bobbi Kristina’s Fam Feuding Over Planned Sweet 16-Themed Funeral?

*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.

Sophie Okonedo as Maya in BBC America’s “Undercover,” to premiere in 2016

*BBC America this morning announced a new six part limited series to star Sophie Okonedo.

“Undercover,” premiering in 2016, will feature the actress as Maya, the first black woman to hold the highest-ranking public prosecutor role in England. But as her professional life is about to hit a new level of scrutiny, her personal life seems to be on shaky ground.

She discovers her husband Nick (Adrian Lester), and the father of her children, has been lying to her for years. “Is he concealing an affair, or is it something altogether more sinister? If she digs up his real past will she jeopardize her own future? What price do you pay for uncovering lies? And who wants her in the top job, and why?” states a press release.

“’Undercover’ is a thriller about identity, trust and the struggle to lead a morally principled personal and professional life, while working up close with the police, press, politicians and criminals who have so corrupted and damaged public life over the last 20 years,” says writer Peter Moffat.

“Undercover” and new original series “Thirteen” will join BBC America’s slate of original scripted shows that includes “Doctor Who” (returns September 19); “Orphan Black” (returns for a fourth season in 2016); “The Last Kingdom” (premieres October 10) and “Luther” (fourth installment premieres winter 2015).

Dylann Roof Enters 33 ‘Not Guilty’ Pleas in Federal Court

dylann roof shooter

*A federal magistrate entered not guilty pleas on 33 federal charges, including for hate crimes, for Dylann Roof, the white man accused of gunning down nine parishioners at a black church in Charleston.

During Friday’s hearing for 21-year-old Dylann Roof, his attorney told U.S. Magistrate Judge Bristow Marchant that his client wanted to enter a plea of guilty to all the counts. But the lawyer said that because the government hasn’t decided whether to seek the death penalty on some of the counts, attorneys could not advise Roof on the issue.

Marchant then entered the not-guilty plea on all counts.

Roof appeared in a gray striped prison jumpsuit, his hands in shackles. He answered yes several times in response to the judge’s questions but otherwise didn’t speak.

Marchant also heard briefly from family members of victims of the June 17 attack.
