1. I've heard that 2 out of those 9 people were Bobby's children from a previous relationship...now I can understand them sitting in the front with Whitney's family because they're Bobbi Kristina's siblings, part of the family. Plus Whitney was their stepmother for 15+ years so there's an individual personal relationship too.
2. As for the 7...This is what makes Bobby an idiot. He decided that HIS people should sit with the Houston family. I'm sorry but who's funeral was this for again? If Whitney and Bobby were still married, then I wouldn't be nitpicking this because he would be the widower and he could've done whatever he wanted. Or, better yet, if this was Bobby's funeral, then his entourage could be where ever they want to be. Bobby should've swallowed his selfish pride and sit apart from his people so he could sit next to his grieving distraught daughter who had to sit there looking at her mother's casket and think about her future without her mom. Bobby could've survived a few hours without his people- they would've been in the same building for crying out loud. He should've put his daughter first.
I've heard that Bobby and Bobbi were a bit estranged, I don't know how much of that is true but I really think Bobbi is better off being estranged. She's 18, legally an adult and, if Whitney had a will, Bobbi should be fine. Even if Whitney didn't have a will, Bobbi was her sole heir so it would automatically be hers.
