There has been a great deal of speculation about whether or not Bobby Brown, 43, will attend ex-wife Whitney Houston's private funeral in New Jersey on Saturday, with some reports suggesting that her family wasn't keen on the idea of having him there.

Turns out there may be a conflict in his schedule, anyway. In a press release dated today, a representative from Mohegan Sun Arena in Connecticut assured that "Bobby Brown is still scheduled to perform" with his group, New Edition, on Saturday, February 18, at the venue.

"Assuming Brown is under contract from a concert promoter, which is a safe assumption, he will probably be held liable for any and all monetary losses suffered by the promoter because of the cancellations," said California-based attorney David E. Wohl, reports Fox News.

Houston's death did not prevent Brown from performing earlier this week. The same night Houston's body was found, Brown went on stage with his band, occasionally crying for his lost ex-wife and saying, "I love you, Whitney," into the air. The next day, however, he cancelled an appearance to fly to Los Angeles and be with his daughter, Bobbi Kristina, who had been hospitalized for severe distress.
