Bobbi Kristina Brown’s memorial was held on Saturday at the Saint James United Methodist Church in Alpharetta, Georgia.

The private funeral service lasted about two hours, but was filled with family tension.

Drama erupted when Brown’s aunt, Leolah Brown, left the service after releasing her anger towards Brown’s other aunt, Pat Houston.

The 22-year old only child of Bobby Brown and Whitney Houston died at an Atlanta, Georgia hospice last Sunday, just six months after she was found unconscious in the bathtub of her Georgia home.

Her mother was famously found in an eerily similar position at the time of her death, having drowned in a Los Angeles hotel bathtub in 2012, on the night of the Grammy Awards.

The daughter of the late singer is to be buried alongside her mother, on Monday, in a New Jersey cemetery.

Leolah Brown was seen bursting out of the funeral procession before speaking to the media outside of the church.

“It was wonderful until Pat started speaking and I didn’t like that, so I left,” Leolah said to the media. “I just told her that Whitney was going to haunt her from the grave.”

Pat Houston is Whitney Houston’s sister-in-law and former manager.

Rumors of ongoing family feuds between the Houstons and the Browns have been circulating since way before the death of Bobbi Kristina, and Leolah Brown assures the media that it is far from over.

“It’s not over. It has just begun,” she said.

E! News reports that Leolah returned to the church after about three minutes of stepping outside. Looks like she just needed to cool off.

Other friends and family in attendance include grandmother Cissy Houston, cousin Jerod Brown, Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed, and R&B singer Monica. One person notably not in attendance was the remembered star’s boyfriend, Nick Gordon.

Gordon currently faces a $40 million civil lawsuit for domestic abuse and theft of money. He claims to actually be Brown’s husband and had sent a letter to her father, Bobby, and aunt, Pat, prior to the service, begging them to allow his attendance.

His absence indicates that this request was denied.

Before returning to the memorial, Leolah expressed a final few words to keep the focus on her beloved niece.

“Krissi, she’ll be remembered in our hearts forever,” she said. “Just like Whitney will. I really loved my niece and I am so saddened that this has happened to her right after her mother.”
