*Bobbi Kristina Brown never had a sweet 16 party before her death at age 22, so her aunt Pat Houston decided to give her a sweet 16-themed sendoff at her funeral.
“Of course it’s bizarre,” said BK’s other aunt Leolah Brown, the older sister of Bobby Brown. “It’s crazy! At this time? You want to do a 16, a sweet 16!”
Speaking exclusively to “Inside Edition,” Aunt Leolah said she was baffled by what happened after the funeral as well, when friends and family members arrived to Pat’s home outside Atlanta on a party bus…chanting Bobbi Kristina’s name.
“It doesn’t make sense to me. A precious life was taken and you have a big party bus in front of your house,” Leolah said.
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 told 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.”
The 22-year-old passed away in July after she was found face-down in a bathtub in her Roswell, Georgia home in January. She was eventually buried in New Jersey beside her mother, who was found unresponsive in a bathtub nearly three years earlier.
As previously reported, 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.
