Speaking to Access Hollywood, Leolah defended her brother and sent out a clear warning to Bobbi Kristina, saying, "I am concerned about my niece Bobbi Kristina, yes.Krissy is not safe right now. I want to say to Krissy that it's very, very, very important that she does not trust anybody at this time." (Contact Music)
On February 18th, a funeral was held for Houston in Newark, New Jersey.
The invitation-only crowd of 1,500 filled the New Hope Baptist Church, where an arrangement of multicolored balloons greeted the gold hearse carrying the body of the multiplatinum singer and actress. Though limousines dropped off a procession of stars, including Jennifer Hudson, Oprah Winfrey, Mariah Carey, BeyoncĂ© Knowles and Angela Bassett, many in the crowd knew Houston as "Nippy" -- a childhood nickname.
