Tyler Perry Shares Bobbi Kristina Brown Tribute Video From Private Funeral
As Gossip Cop reported, Brown died on July 26 at age 22, months after she was found unconscious and face-down in her bathtub. She spent much of the year in a coma, before being moved into hospice care in late June. Her funeral was held on August 3, just over a month ago.
“The Houston estate asked if I would share this tribute that I put together for Bobbi Kristina’s private funeral,” Perry wrote on Facebook. “On behalf of the Brown and Houston families, we would all like to thank you for your prayers and support. God bless.”
The video, which is more than three minutes in length, begins with a photo of the funeral’s program, which reads, “A celebration of our princess.” Set to Whitney Houston’s “The Greatest Love Of All,” a “few words from Krissi” appear onscreen. The song then changes to Houston’s “You Were Loved,” as a montage shows photos of Brown from when she was a baby, her adolescent years, and then as a young adult.
Not surprisingly, most of the pictures have never before been seen by the public, as they appear to be from the family’s private albums. Other snapshots, though, showcase Brown’s life in the spotlight with her famous parents. And despite ongoing tensions between the Houstons and Browns, Bobby Brown is featured fairly heavily in the assortment of photos.
Towards the end, there’s actual footage of Brown, and it concludes with a photo of her blowing a kiss at the camera with “Goodbye for now” written underneath (see above). As Gossip Cop has reported, Perry has served as a liaison between the Houstons and the media at times. The producer-director was and is extremely close with the family, and it shows in the video he put together. Check it out below, and tell us what you think.
