Bobby Brown Left Whitney Houston's Funeral - Details Here
TMZ Whitney Houston's funeral: Bobby Brown left the church. It is unclear if Bobby left on his own accord or if he was asked to leave. Our camera guys outside the funeral spotted Bobby ever-so-briefly on his way in and his SUVs returned a short time later, though Bobby cannot be seen leaving (see video below).
Rev. Al Sharpton tweeted just moments ago, saying, "I am at Whitney's funeral. I spoke with Bobby Brown trying to calm him down and not distract from the services. Today is about Whitney!"
Bobby Brown was asked to leave Whitney Houston's funeral today ... after he got into an argument with Whitney's family over whether or not he could bring nine people into the church with him ... TMZ has learned.

According to our sources, Brown was invited, plus two, but instead showed up with an entourage of nine people. We're told Bobby became upset when he found out they would not seat his whole party.
Our sources say Bobby wanted to sit with his daughter, Bobbi Kristina, but Whitney's family was not having it.
We're told Rev. Jesse Jackson tried to smooth things
