Bobby Brown is expected to be among the mourners attending ex-wife Whitney Houston's funeral on Saturday, despite reports that some of the pop icon's relatives don't want him there.

Contrary to a TMZ report claiming that Houston's family wants him to keep his distance, a source tells ABC News that Brown was contacted about attending the funeral. And a member of the R&B star's family told ABC News they won't be able to keep Brown from the service because of his concern for the well-being of the couple's daughter, Bobbi Kristina. The 18-year-old was hospitalized twice last weekend for anxiety and stress after learning of her mother's death.

There's been no word from Houston's family regarding the alleged flap. The funeral is by invitation only.

Brown issued an update to ABC News yesterday about his daughter's health.

"My daughter Bobbi Kristina is doing much better," he said. "We continue to provide love and support to Bobbi Kristina. She is dealing with the tragedy of her mother's death and would prefer to do it outside of the public eye. I ask again that our privacy be respected."

The service for Houston will be held Saturday at the New Hope Baptist Church in Newark, New Jersey. Grammy-winning gospel singer Marvin Winans, a longtime Houston family friend, will deliver the eulogy.
