Whitney Houston's ex-husband Bobby Brown walked out of the singer's memorial service today, after a run-in with security guards. 

Brown said he and his children left to avoid creating a scene after they were asked repeatedly to move.

"My children and I were invited to the funeral of my ex-wife Whitney Houston," Brown said in a statement. "We were seated by security and then subsequently asked to move on three separate occasions. I fail to understand why security treated my family this way and continued to ask us to move."

“Security then prevented me from attempting to see my daughter Bobbi-Kristina. In light of the events, I gave a kiss to the casket of my ex-wife and departed as I refused to create a scene. My children are completely distraught over the events. This was a day to honor Whitney. I doubt Whitney would have wanted this to occur. I will continue to pay my respects to my ex-wife the best way I know how.”

TMZ reports that Brown was told he could bring two guests, but brought an entourage of nine instead. He was then told the large group couldn't be accommodated, prompting him to leave about 20 minutes into the service.
