Mourners pay respects to Bobbi Kristina Brown

Mourners have gathered to pay their respects to Bobbi Kristina Brown.

The 22-year-old aspiring actress tragically passed away last week, six months after she was found unresponsive in a bath tub, and family and friends have attended the funeral in Alpharetta, Atlanta today (01.08.15).

Family members including Bobby Brown's wife, Alicia Etheredge, were seen arriving at the service whilst Bobbi Kristina's aunt Pat Houston's car was seen in a convoy heading for the church, the Daily Mail newspaper reports.

Meanwhile, a source has revealed Bobby said his "final private goodbye" to his daughter - who he had with the late Whitney Houston - at the Murray Brothers Funeral Home in Atlanta on Friday (31.07.15).

They said: "He asked to have some time, with Bobbi, just the two of them. It was the last time he sees his daughter's body before the funeral on Saturday, followed by her burial in New Jersey on Monday.

"He left at around 10pm, he wanted to be with her for as long as he possibly could, it was his chance to say his final private goodbye."

Controversy has surrounded the funeral after Pat was said to have specifically requested the service should have a "sweet 16" theme, angering Bobbi Kristina's godmother Dionne Warwick who reportedly threatened to boycott the funeral.

Members of the Brown family are also believed to be fearful that photographs of the deceased star's body in her casket may be taken and sold to the media, which is what happened to her mother Whitney.
