Bobby Brown Performs, Gambles at Casino Post-Whitney Houston Funeral

by at . Comments

The story is well known by now: Bobby Brown left Whitney Houston's funeral after just 20 minutes because he tangled with security, and his former in-laws, over seating arrangement.

But where did he go from there? To Mohegan Sun, a casino in Connecticut, where Brown performed a set with New Edition.

"I wanna give blessings to my ex-wife Whitney Houston. I love you," Brown said at one point during the concert, pointing toward the sky. "I want to give blessings to my kids, my brothers and all of you. Thank you for the love."

Following a show that included past hits such as "Tenderoni" and "My Prerogative," sources tell People Brown dined with friends.

Bobby Flay's restaurant, Bar Americain. He didn't drink, posed a bit with fans and later gambled for about 20 minutes at $500 blackjack tables.

"He wasn't really partying, but he was having a good time with his old crew from Boston," says a witness. "He had a lot of support and bodyguards stuck close to him to keep fans from being too intrusive."

After a late-night snack, this onlooker says Brown then retired for the night around 2 a.m.
