Family members from both the Browns and Houstons gathered in the Atlanta area on Saturday, Aug. 1, to pay their respects to Bobbi Kristina Brown, daughter of Bobby Brown and the late Whitney Houston, who died on July 26.

People reports that the private ceremony took place at the Saint James United Methodist Church in Atlanta and despite the somber atmosphere surrounding Brown’s tragic death, drama erupted between the Browns and Houstons during the funeral.

The Associated Press reports that Leolah Brown, sister of Bobby Brown and Bobbi’s aunt, stormed out of the church before the service was over. Reportedly, she objected to Pat Houston speaking at the funeral and even shouted at her before leaving. Pat Houston is the sister-in-law and former manager for Whitney Houston.

“I told her that Whitney is going to haunt her from the grave,” Leolah Brown told reporters outside the church.

In regards to the family feud between the Browns and Houstons, Leolah admitted that the rift is far from over. “It’s just getting started,” she admitted.

According to Entertainment Weekly, Bobbi is expected to be laid to rest next to her mother’s grave in New Jersey on  Monday.

Bobbi Kristina Brown passed away at the age of 22 after being in a coma for nearly six months. She was found unresponsive in a bathtub on Jan. 31 and was transferred to various hospitals in an attempt to improve her condition.
