Bobby Brown's wife Alicia Etheridge was rushed to hospital after suffering a seizure on Saturday evening following the chaotic and stressful funeral for Bobbi Kristina.

She was was rushed to a medical facility in the Atlanta area after suffering the seizure at a hotel the family were staying in after the service in Alpharetta, Georgia.

She was taken to the hospital in an ambulance and a source said that once Alicia - who gave birth three weeks ago - got to the hospital she was able to walk inside with little help.

Bobby Brown was by her side at the time and her collapse came just hours after the devastated musician broke down in tears as he left the reception on Saturday following the funeral of his daughter Bobbi Kristina.

The RnB singer wiped away tears and his face appeared wracked with pain as he was driven in a white SUV from the St Marlo Country Club in Duluth, Georgia on Saturday evening.

The Brown family held the gathering following the funeral of Bobbi Kristina Brown, the 22-year-old daughter of the singer and his ex-wife Whitney Houston.

Bobbi Kristina passed away at a local hospice last Sunday, six months after she was found unresponsive in a bathtub at her Georgia home.

The reception in Duluth was held by the Brown family separately from the Houstons who had their own event in Buckhead, Atlanta following an ugly scene earlier at the funeral.

Bobby Brown's sister Leolah also attended the reception after being ejected from her niece's funeral following an outburst at Pat Houston, who is married to Whitney's brother Gary.

Leolah was escorted out of the service by movie mogul Tyler Perry and then launched an astonishing attack on Pat Houston on Saturday morning.

Booted out of St. James Methodist Church for interrupting Pat Houston's eulogy in front of the star studded congregation of mourners, Brown began a tirade against her, saying, 'Whitney Houston will haunt Pat Houston from the grave'.

As the simmering feud between the Brown and Houston families publicly and spectacularly erupted, Brown addressed reporters outside the church while the funeral for her niece ended with Whitney Houston's Jesus Loves Me ringing out in the church.

'It's not over. We've got evidence of who Pat really is, this is going to be a long drawn out process,' said Leolah, who has been fighting with the Houston family over Bobbi's $20 million inheritance and the Sweet 16 theme of the funeral.

'Things are connected,' said Brown about Pat Houston, who is married to Whitney Houston's brother Gary.

'Pat is a fraud and a phony. She is not a Houston, she's a Garland.'

Eyewitnesses said the somber, invite-only funeral for 22-year-old Bobbi had been going well and was a celebration of her life. Her boyfriend Nick Gordon did not attend the funeral amid claims he was told to stay away by the family.

Reverend Michael McQueen, the senior pastor at St James' hosted the the service which included prayers from the Bible, followed by tributes and then a eulogy.

Bobby Brown wrote a special message in the funeral's program which read, 'I also will always love you' and in a touching move, a gospel choir sang the same song that was played at mother, Whitney Houston's memorial.

Donnie McClurkin's Stand was sung at the superstar singer's memorial back in 2012 and the repeat performance touched everyone.

'It was beautiful. It was wonderful that Whitney was remembered too' said one mourner to the UK's Daily Mirror.

All the mourners inside the church were given an A4 order of service, embossed with a beautiful picture of Bobbi on the front.
