…and he JUST won a Grammy on Sunday! Chris Brown‘s misfortune happened to start on that very day, as a matter of fact. According to The Wall Street Journal, country singer Miranda Lambert, wife to country star and The Voice judge Blake Shelton, went to Twitter to discuss her dislike for the singer’s Grammy win.
“How dang long did they give Nicki Minaj to do whatever that was? Strange. And Chris Brown twice? I don’t get it. He beat on a girl…,” wrote Lambert. “Not cool that we act like that didn’t happen. He needs to listen to Gunpowder and lead and be put back in his place. Not at the Grammys,” she continued.
Whoa. Chris then seemed to respond via Twitter, saying “Hate all you want becuz I got a Grammy now. That’s the ultimate F*&k off!” He’s since deleted the tweet and replaced it with ANOTHER tweet, saying “Be HAPPY!”. Yeesh! And just not long ago, Chris seemed to step up his campaign towards moving forward by doing something pretty bold…
Praise Report: Looks like the family is working things out and Bobby Brown will attend the funeral. The funeral is invitation-only, but it will be broadcast so that fans can have a moment, too. Bobbi Kristina is doing better, just needs privacy, prayer, and time to grieve outside the public’s eye.
Bobby Brown is expected to be in the pews Saturday at an invitation-only memorial service at Newark, New Jersey’s New Hope Baptist Church for his ex-wife Whitney Houston, despite the bad blood brewing between he and the singer’s family.
According to TMZ, memebers of Whitney Hoston’s family has banned Bobby Brown from seeing Bobbi Kristina. TMZ is also reporting that Bobby Brown may be banned from the funeral as well.
Bobby Brown still hasn’t seen his daughter — THREE days after Whitney Houston‘s death — and he thinks Whitney’s family … specifically, Cissy Houston, is throwing up the road block. Sources close to Bobby tell us he hasn’t connected with Bobbi Kristina since arriving in L.A. Sunday night — despite placing several phone calls and making an attempt to physically see her … early this morning. We’re told Brown was turned away by Whitney’s family and friends … who are caring for BK at a home in the Los Angeles area.
Bobby Brown is “extremely disappointed” after hearing that several members of Whitney Houston‘s family do not want him to attend the singer’s funeral … sources tell TMZ. Sources close to Bobby tell us … people connected to the Houston family have reached out to Bobby to warn him that he shouldn’t attempt to attend the funeral because the family isn’t fond of him. However … we’re told Bobby has not received any OFFICIAL word from the family about his invite status.
I understand people are hurt, but now is not the time to feud. The funeral should be about Whitney Hoston, and no matter how much people don’t like it, the fact is Whitney loved Bobby Brown and she loved him hard. We can’t continue blame him for the choices made years ago. Something tells me, Bobby Brown is hurting enough on the inside for those choices, as well. With both of them having addiction issues, I am sure they have done a lot to hurt each other. At the end of the day, when Bobby’s mother died, Whitney was there, and not only was she there, she sang Precious Lord at his mother’s funeral.
Bobbi Kristina is old enough to decide if she wants to see her father. If she doesn’t then Bobby Brown will have to respect that, but if people are keeping him away from her, that’s not cool. He may be the one to provide some comfort to her during her grief. I just wish people could use this time to heal, forgive, and let Ms Houston have her peace. You may not understand the love or the strong hold, we may not even like it, but there is no denying that it was there.
I have seen a lot of people leaving comments blaming Bobby Brown. Life is about choices and consequences, and at the end of the day we are all responsible for our choices. We all make choices that are not in our best interest for many different reasons, and sometimes the consequences are greater than we could have imagined. At the end of it all, we are the only ones that will stand accountable. Whitney Hoston lived a great life and unfortuantely we only focus on the bad, although we will never be able to take away her accomplishments. She achieved well above and beyond the average human and not Bobby or the media or anyone else can erase that fact. The best gift the Hostons and the Browns can give Whitney, is to honor and respect the love she had for all of them for one day.
Gabrielle Union, Sharon Leal, and Thandie Newton hit the red carpet with Tyler Perry at the LA premiere of Tyler Perry’s new film, Good Deeds. The movie will hit theaters February 24th. This is not the film with Kim Kardashian, thanks Tasha.
A synopsis of the movie when you continue…
Hmm. Seems like they might be. They were spotted by those ever present photogs over at the TMZ camp kissing at last night’s Lakers game! Vanessa Bryant was in the stands, dressed in Valentine’s Day red, cheering Kobe and his teammates to victory. And once the game was over, Vanessa awarded Kobe with a kiss smack dab on the lips.
Vanessa showed up for the Lakers Valentine’s Day victory over the Atlanta Hawks. The two shared a kiss in the tunnel on the way into the locker room.
Outside of abuse or life or death situations, I would never wish anyone to go through a divorce. It’s a painful process. So reconciliation is always a great thing…when it’s truly authentic. I can’t help but feeling that it might be a little of the “cheaper to keep her” syndrome. I mean, did you guys hear about what Vanessa would get according to their property settlement??
