The reception in Duluth was held by the Brown family separately from the Houstons who had their own event in Buckhead, Atlanta following an ugly scene earlier at the funeral.

Bobby Brown's sister Leolah also attended the reception after being ejected from her niece's funeral following an outburst at Pat Houston, who is married to Whitney's brother Gary.

Leolah was escorted out of the service by movie mogul Tyler Perry and then launched an astonishing attack on Pat Houston on Saturday morning.

Booted out of St. James Methodist Church for interrupting Pat Houston's eulogy in front of the star studded congregation of mourners, Brown began a tirade against her, saying, 'Whitney Houston will haunt Pat Houston from the grave'.

As the simmering feud between the Brown and Houston families publicly and spectacularly erupted, Brown addressed reporters outside the church while the funeral for her niece ended with Whitney Houston's Jesus Loves Me ringing out in the church.

'It's not over. We've got evidence of who Pat really is, this is going to be a long drawn out process,' said Leolah, who has been fighting with the Houston family over Bobbi's $20 million inheritance and the Sweet 16 theme of the funeral.

'Things are connected,' said Brown about Pat Houston, who is married to Whitney Houston's brother Gary.

'Pat is a fraud and a phony. She is not a Houston, she's a Garland.'

Eyewitnesses said the somber, invite-only funeral for 22-year-old Bobbi had been going well and was a celebration of her life. Her boyfriend Nick Gordon did not attend the funeral amid claims he was told to stay away by the family.

Reverend Michael McQueen, the senior pastor at St James' hosted the the service which included prayers from the Bible, followed by tributes and then a eulogy.

Bobby Brown wrote a special message in the funeral's program which read, 'I also will always love you' and in a touching move, a gospel choir sang the same song that was played at mother, Whitney Houston's memorial.

Donnie McClurkin's Stand was sung at the superstar singer's memorial back in 2012 and the repeat performance touched everyone.

'It was beautiful. It was wonderful that Whitney was remembered too' said one mourner to the UK's Daily Mirror. 

Her grandmother, gospel singer Cissy sang The Lord is my Shepherd 

All the mourners inside the church were given an A4 order of service, embossed with a beautiful picture of Bobbi on the front. 

The service in total went on for two hours and 41 minutes - including Leolah Brown's outburst - and finished with the late 22-year-old being taken out of the church with bagpipes playing Ave Maria.

It was when Pat Houston began her eulogy thought, that Leolah began heckling and outside the church she paid tribute to her niece.

'She will be remembered in our hearts forever. It's so sad that this has happened to her,' said Brown.

'I'm angry at Nick, I am angry at what happened.'

'It was all fine until Pat started speaking.'

Prior to Leolah's outburst, it was reported that members of the Brown family were upset that Pat Houston had asked for donations to her charity instead of mourners buying Bobbi Kristina flowers.

Brown was furious with Bobbi Kristina's funeral invitation, which states: 'The family has asked that in lieu of flowers, donations be made in Bobbi Kristina's name to The Marion P Foundation.'

The Marion P. Foundation is a charity run by Pat Houston, and it is for the benefit of troubled teens.

Earlier last month, Bobby Brown's relatives were barred from visiting the Peachtree Christian Hospice in Georgia because an unidentified person took deathbed photographs and tried to sell them.

And, of course, both families are fighting for control of Bobbi Kristina's $20 million inheritance.

Earlier, mourners including Grammy award winning singer Monica and actor Michael Jai White gathered at the Alpharetta, Atlanta church to say goodbye to Bobbi Kristina Brown, the only child of Whitney Houston and R&B singer Bobby Brown.

However, Dionne Warwick, the cousin of Whitney Houston was not photographed at the service after it was reported she would stay away in protest at the Sweet 16 theme organized by Pat Houston.

Bobbi Kristina's silver casket arrived at St. James United Methodist Church just a few hours before her funeral.

FAMILIES AT WAR: BROWN AND HOUSTON'S CLASH AS THEY BOTH COME TOGETHER TO BURY BOBBI KRISTINA

On Thursday, Bobby Brown's sister, Leolah Brown, took to her Facebook page to rant against Pat Houston whom she earlier damned for attempting to raise money for her foundation through public donations in Bobbi Kristina's name.

Then, she wrote: 'The Brown family has just learned that Marion Patricia Houston, AKA: Pat Houston, is asking for the public to send money to her foundation (The Marion P Foundation) on behalf of my niece Bobbi Kristina.

'She has not even sat down & spoken to my brother Bobby, who is Bobbi Kristina's father, about this. PLEASE keep your money in your pockets and give absolutely NOTHING to the Marion P foundation. Unless you don't mind supporting such an evil and dirty foundation. Lastly, keep your eyes & ears open as THE TRUTH is being revealed.'

In her latest Facebook diatribe, posted on Friday, Leolah appeared to challenge Pat Houston to face off with her publicly.

Furious tirade: Leolah Brown (left) vented her feelings very publicly about Pat Houston (pictured right, center) during Bobbi Kristina's funeral

She wrote: 'You notice, no matter what I say, Pat never says anything following, to at least defend herself? Just think about it. Use your God-given brains. If, what I was saying was untrue or just talking for no reason at all…whey would she not defend herself if I am wrong?

'…I will tell you. Because SHE CANNOT talk back to truth. She has no leg to stand on.

'Furthermore, she is not the sweet quiet person that she 'tried' so hard to make people believe she was on the Oprah show. She would like the public to think that..but she is very good and polished on keeping her composure when she is under the microscope.'

Leolah went on to claim: 'Whitney and I spoke on this on many occasions – so don't let her fool you. Although she is being quiet, she is indeed heated right now! Because her world is tumbling down!'

In the lengthy and rambling post Leolah stated: 'She is actually in shock right now J because a Brown is usually silent. If you check my record: 'I never have said anything until Whitney was murdered and now my niece Bobby Kristina!...I play no games nor pull any punches when it comes to the truth! I am ready on any given day. And she could come any way she would ever choose. She will be at the bottom. This is why she is quiet and refuse (sic) to comment of fight me on anything I say!'

Peacemaker: Director Tyler Perry leaves the funeral on Saturday after he helped calm Leolah Brown during her attack on Pat Houston during the service 

Her hearse was escorted to St. James United Methodist Church by a huge police motorcade and her coffin was carried into the invitation only service by four men dressed in black suits as family members arrived for the 11am start.

Eight police motorcycles escorted three stretch limousines carrying mourners to the church ahead of the service. A procession of dozens of cars followed.

Security was tight at the church, with check points being manned by family personnel and Georgia State Troopers as scores of media and members of the public gathered outside.  

Those in attendance included her father Bobby Brown and Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed, but one very notable absentee was Bobbi Kristina's boyfriend, Nick Gordon, who found her unconscious in a bathtub at her home nearly six months ago.

Despite pleading with Brown and Bobbi's aunt, Pat Houston, Gordon was told he was not welcome at the funeral - which is believed to have a Sweet 16 theme.

In June, a court-appointed conservator for Bobbi Kristina filed a $10 million lawsuit against Gordon, alleging he assaulted her and took money from her estate.

Whitney's mother, Cissy Houston, was also seen leaving the home along with other guests who climbed into the SUVs.

They traveled in convoy amid rush-hour traffic to the Murray Brothers Funeral Home in Atlanta arriving at around 6pm. 

Later, after the Houston clan left, Bobby Brown entered the funeral home with his wife, Alicia Etheredge, son Bobby Brown Jr, and his sisters, Tina Brown and Leolah Brown. Some young children were also seen being shepherded inside.

The family were seen hugging and leaning on each other when they left around 8pm.  

Meanwhile, more plants and furniture were being delivered to the family home nearby in Alpharetta, Georgia, for what looks set to be grand memorial. 

As Daily Mail Online revealed on Thursday, Dionne Warwick is the latest family member to be dragged into the fray which has played out between relatives during the last six months, since Bobbi fell into a coma and eventually died. 

Warwick, who oversaw Whitney's funeral, strongly disapproves of Pat Houston's management of Krissi's 'sweet sixteen themed' funeral which is due to take place in Alpharetta, Georgia, on Saturday.

Speaking to Daily Mail Online the source said: 'Dionne is planning a trip and threatening to not attend the funeral because Pat Houston is taking over even though she should be making decisions with Bobby and not doing it on her own.' 

Soon after the Houston family and friends (pictured) left the funeral home, the Brown family arrived to view Bobbi Kristina's body, causing speculation that the families had planned to avoid each other

Bobbi Kristina Brown dies surrounded by her family six months after she was found unconscious in a bathtub at the age of 22

Georgia authorities have opened a homicide investigation into Bobbi Kristina Brown'sdeath, according to TMZ.

This had been expected given the fact that Bobbi reportedly had facial injuries at the time she was taken to the hospital, after being found unconscious, face down and submerged in water in a bathtub at her Roswell, Georgia home on January 31, 2015.

Bobbi's boyfriend, Nick Gordon, is a person of interest in the investigation. He and a friend of Bobbi's found her in the bathtub.

Bobbi was 22-years old when she died on Sunday, July 26. She had been in a coma for the last several months. She was the only child of Bobby Brown and the late, great singer Whitney Houston.

'She kept all the pictures and Whitney’s platinum and gold album plaques. But she threw everything else out,' a source close to Brown told US Weekly. 'Everything is at Pat's house now'.

In the days before Bobbi Kristina's death, her loved ones had been spotted arriving at the hospice, where a gray tent was erected in which a hearse could inconspicuously take away a casket.

A hearse was pictured arriving at the facility last week as Bobbi Kristina's family and friends, including Whitney Houston's friend, music producer Tyler Perry, turned up to bid her goodbye. 

A day later, another hearse pulled up to the tent, which blocked the view of the hospice's back door. The sightings fueled speculation on whether Bobbi Kristina was still alive inside the facility.

Uncle Tommy - the brother of Bobby Brown - and Whitney Houston's beloved former body guard, Ray Watson, were also seen paying their final respects to Bobbi Kristina at the hospice last week.

Watson arrived looking somber and spent over 30 minutes alone in his car after his visit last Wednesday, while Pat Houston and Perry spent an hour at Bobbi Kristina's bedside last Friday.

Meanwhile, Uncle Tommy was pictured arriving at the hospice - where Bobbi Kristina was taken on June 24 to 'die naturally - in low spirits along with other grief-stricken Houston and Brown relatives.  

BOBBI KRISTINA BROWN: A LIFE AT THE EDGE OF A HARSH SPOTLIGHT

Bobby Brown and Whitney Houston with baby Bobbi Kristina in 1993

Bobbi Kristina Brown was born to Bobby Brown and Whitney Houston in Livingston, New Jersey on March 4, 1993.

That same year, her mother Whitney was hitting the peak of her considerable fame with the release of her beloved cover of the song I'm Every Woman and of her megahit The Bodyguard the year before.

At the tender age of two, Bobbi Kristina was taken onstage before a national audience at the American Music Awards by her superstar mother.

In 2002, when Bobbi Kristina was nine, Whitney Houston gave her infamous 'crack is wack' interview in which she proclaimed to the world: 'Let's get one thing straight. Crack is cheap. I make too much money to ever smoke crack.' 

The following year, the world got to hear then 10-year-old Bobbi Kristina's considerable singing talent for the first time when she recorded a version of Christmas classic Little Drummer Boy with her mother.

In 2005, Bravo aired its single season of Being Bobby Brown, which followed the family--including Bobbi Kristina, who often appeared humiliated by her parents allegedly drug-fueled antics.

In 2007, after a prolonged and embarrassing public drama that included a custody battle, Bobby Brown and Whitney Houston were divorced. Bobbi Kristina was 14.

Bobbi Kristina briefly attended high school in Edison, New Jersey, where her parents insisted to staff that she be treated just like any other student.

'Their daughter showed up the next day in a chauffeured Rolls,' Richard Krieg, a local politician, recalled to the Guardian.

With mom and dad: Bobbi Kristina, Houston and Brown are seen left and right circa 1995

Bobbi Kristina would complete her high school education in Huntington Beach, California. While there, she would be called hard-partying problem child by gossip rags.

On February 11, 2012, just before the Grammys, Houston's assistant found the singer's lifeless body face-down in a foot of water. 

Authorities found a dozen prescription drug bottles in the Beverly Hills Hotel suite and listed heart disease and cocaine use as contributors, but concluded that she accidentally drowned.

Bobbi Kristina, then 18, became so distraught that she needed to be hospitalized.

'She wasn't only a mother, she was a best friend,' she told Oprah shortly after her mother's death in 2012.

Later that year, the family including Bobbi Kristina, Cissy Houston, Pat Houston and Bobbi Kristina's lover, Nick Gordon, starred in the Lifetime docuseries The Houstons: On Our Own.

Brown and Gordon, who once called each other big brother and little sister, went public with their romance about a month after Houston's death.

Later that year, Houston's mother Cissy and sister-in-law Patricia were so concerned that others would prey on the young woman's fortune that they petitioned a judge to delay part of the inheritance, and Bobbi Kristina agreed.

The young couple's announcement of their marriage in January 2014 troubled some members of the family. 

Her aunt Patricia Houston soon obtained a restraining order against Gordon, effective through April 2015.

On January 31, 2015, Bobbi Kristina was discovered face down in a bathtub in her Georgia home. 

She would never regain consciousness.

The Houston family had kept largely mum on Bobbi Kristina's condition since Pat Houston said her niece was 'in God's hands' after she was transferred to the end of life facility from hospital. 

As TMZ notes, the family was prepared to let Bobbi Kristina die at the Duluth-based hospice after doctors gave them no hope of her recovery. 

'Despite the great medical care at numerous facilities, Bobbi Kristina Brown's condition has continued to deteriorate,' read a family statement, made in June.

'As of today, she has been moved into hospice care.'

While Bobbi Kristina's relatives had continued to flock to her bedside over the past six months, her ex-boyfriend Nick Gordon, 25, had been banned from visiting his former lover by her family.

Gordon is also subject to a $10million lawsuit claiming he attacked her on January 31.

Later that day, Brown was found face down and unresponsive in the bathtub in her Atlanta area home. She underwent surgery to replace her breathing tube with a tracheotomy tube in February.

Pat Houston makes late night visit to Bobbi Kristina in hospice

She was originally placed into a medically-induced coma after the horrific discovery, which was made in circumstances eerily reminiscent of her internationally-famous mother's death. 

Whitney Houston was found dead in a bathtub in her Los Angeles hotel just hours before she was due to attend a pre-Grammy awards party in February 2010. Her death was ruled accidental. 

However, police are treating Bobbi Kristina's near-drowning, alleged injuries and subsequent death as a criminal investigation - with speculation mounting that Gordon will face charges. 

Meanwhile, the Houstons are looking for justice through a civil suit. 

A court-appointed representative of Bobbi Kristina has filed an explosive lawsuit against Gordon claiming that he took money from her and abused her physically and emotionally.

Bedilia Hargrove launched the suit in Fulton County Superior Court. The complaint says Gordon routinely transferred large sums of money from Bobbi Kristina's accounts to his without permission.

The suit also accuses Gordon of misrepresenting his relationship with Bobbi Kristina, being violent toward her and taking more than $11,000 from her account after she was found in the bathtub.

Hospice stay: Bobbi Kristina has been at Peachtree Christian Hospice for three weeks. Family members have been seen coming and going from the facility since the end of June

Ongoing drama: The appearance of the tent on Wednesday was the first development in the ongoing drama since it was revealed earlier in July that someone - potentially one of her family members - was shopping around deathbed photos of Bobbi Kristina (pictured, right, in 2012)

Gordon is accused of assault, battery, intentional infliction of emotional distress, unjust enrichment and conversion. The suit seeks at least $10 million in damages, it is reported. 

The appearance of the tent on Wednesday was the first development in the ongoing drama since it was revealed earlier in July that someone was shopping around deathbed photos of Bobbi Kristina.

The news of the photo -potentially offered to media outlets by a family member - was first revealed by Bobbi Kristina's paternal aunt Leola Brown, who took to Facebook to express her disgust.

'I'll tell you what! You took that picture thinking you gon get some money for it...and thats gon be it!' she wrote. 'Guess what!????!!!! I will myself if no one else does-see to it that -YOU be revealed!!!!'

She added that she is going to make anyone who has visited Bobbi Kristina - including relatives on both sides of her family and other loved ones - take a lie detector test to track down the culprit.

Mere days before his daughter's death, Bobby Brown welcomed a new baby girl into his family.

Brown and his wife Alicia Ethridge welcomed a newborn daughter on Saturday.

Ethridge, who wed the R&B star in 2012, was induced at Cedars Sinai hospital in Los Angeles.

Brown and Etheridge already have a 5-year-old son named Cassius.

Brown has a total of six children, including Bobbi Kristina with late ex-wife Whitney Houston. 

Brown performed at the Affordable Old School Concert series in Atlanta on Saturday, July 4, where the 46-year-old singer repeatedly apologized to the audience as he stumbled through the set and forgot lyrics and dance moves, TMZ reported.

In a video taken at the gig, the singer can be heard telling the crowd: 'I'm in a different zone.'

The 22-year-old's family did not comment on her condition as the photos emerged, nor would Peachtree Christian reveal the reasons behind erecting the tent.

However, it appears that the center may have constructed the tent to protect the privacy of other patients' families, since Bobbi Kristina's aunt Pat Houston was seen visiting late Wednesday night, according to video obtained by TMZ.

The video shows Pat Houston entering the facility after dark, hours after pictures of hearse backing in and out of the tent during daylight surfaced.

Loved ones who showed up Wednesday to the hospice center included Whitney Houston's former bodyguard Ray Watson, who arrived looking somber and spent over 30 minutes alone in his car after his visit to his late boss's daughter.

Bobby Brown's brother Tommy also arrived for a visit Wednesday along with other Houston and Brown family members.

The tent appeared at the back door of the Georgia hospice center where Bobbi Kristina was taken June 24 in order to 'die naturally' in the afternoon.

Blocking the view? It stands to reason that the 22-year-old's family could have had the gray structure placed behind Peachtree Christian Hospice near Atlanta in order to block photographers from taking pictures of anything coming or going through the door

The lawsuit by Bobbi's family detailing claims of alleged abuse by Nick Gordon against the 22-year-old also claims he physically 

The news was first revealed by Bobbi Kristina's paternal aunt Leola Brown, who took to Facebook to express her disgust.

'I'll tell you what! You took that picture thinking you gon get some money for it...and thats gon be it!' she wrote. 'Guess what!????!!!! I will myself if no one else does-see to it that -YOU be revealed!!!!'

She added that she is going to make anyone who has visited Bobbi Kristina - including relatives on both sides of her family and other loved ones - take a lie detector test to track down the culprit.

'EVERY ONE OF YOU ALL WILL TAKE A LIE DETECTOR TEST!! AND NOT BY YOUR PEOPLE EITHER! YOU AINT GON BE ABLE TO PAY PEOPLE OFF ON THIS ONE! YOU will not do to my niece what YOU did to Whitney! Everyone knows who YOU ARE! Aint nobody stupid!' she wrote.

With a murder investigation set to begin if Bobbi Kristina Brown dies the "person of interest" in the case, her fiance Nick Gordon, is already on the defensive.

Just weeks after the 22-year old only child of Whitney Houston and Bobby Brownwas found in the bathtub of her Roswell, Georgia home face down, unconscious and submerged in water, Gordon was recorded talking to a member of Bobby's family about the incident, according to TMZ.

"I'll tell you the honest truth, Krissy, she was under a lot of stress and we were all doing drugs and you know, all, all drinking, bro. She just did too much man. She, listen, listen bro. I will officially stay from bath tubs forever, I'll tell you that."

Gordon also had an explanation for the injuries found on Bobbi after she was taken to the hospital. He also seems to resign himself to the fact that he might be a suspect in the case.

"When Krissy wakes up she'll tell the truth to everybody. Everybody will feel stupid as f***... You know Krissy got in an accident 2 days before this happened and the man is in critical condition right now. If they take her off that life support, the police are going to have to take me down bro."

The recordings are legal because Georgia is a "one party" state for audio recording conversations. That means that any party to a conversation can audio record the conversation without the knowledge of any other party to the conversation, according to the Steakley Law Firm.

Bobbi Kristina's outraged aunt hunts down 'extended relative' who took photo of her 22-Y-O niece on hospice death bed - and is now trying to sell it to media for 100K {F}

Bobbi has been in a coma since the January 31, 2015 incident. The Houston and Brown families recently made the decision to take her off of life support and let her die in peace while in hospice care.

I do not like how Caribbean Fever report/write news. They keep repeating the same thing over and over all drawn out. I can never read the entire article because as soon as I read the same thing twice I mive on. Family will always be fueding in situations like this. I have to agree though, how does Pat always land in the middle of s***? Everyone is responsible for their actions, but I am not sure what her intentions are in all this. Is she the head of the family? Ahyayaye!
