Whitney Houston will not have a public memorial. The family opted for a private ceremony this Saturday at New Hope Baptist Church in Newark, where Whitney used to sing as a child. They are keeping the service super private and only people who are on the guest list will be allowed in.

One person that did not get an invite is Whitney’s ex husband Bobby Brown. He is extremely distraught over Whitney’s death, but the family doesn’t want him at the service. They’ve also kept him from having any contact with his daughter Bobbi Kristina, who’s staying with some family in LA. They told Bobby that he’s done enough damage to their family and he just needs to leave everyone alone.
