Brown claims it is because his ex mother-in-law Cissy hasn’t liked him for years.

Now sources tell TMZ that Cissy is reportedly blocking Brown from seeing Bobbi Kristina because she thinks he is after Whitney’s (now Bobbi Kristina’s) money. The family thinks Brown is broken and wants to make a play for an estate that estimated to be worth $20 million, and that figure could be much higher by the end of the year.

TMZ also says that friends of the Houston family have contacted Brown and told him he is not welcome at the funeral Saturday (Feb. 18). The family has long believed Brown was the driving force behind Houston’s abuse of drugs.

Sources close to Brown tell TMZ that he simply wants to bury the hatchet for the sake of his daughter.
