Bobbi Kristina to be buried beside her mom Whitney Houston in New Jersey

The funeral of Bobbi Kristina Brown will be held on Saturday morning in Atlanta and her body will be flown to New Jersey for burial at the spot where her mother Whitney Houston was laid to rest.

The Fulton County Medical Examiner has released Bobbi Kristina's body and it is currently at a funeral home in preparation for burial. The autopsy was performed yesterday, but results may not be disclosed for weeks.

The service for the 22-year-old, who died on Sunday evening, will take place at St. James United Methodist Church in Alpharetta at 11am.

A list of celebrity guests are being invited but details are being kept a close secret by her aunt Pat Houston, who is a co-executor of her will.

She is currently compiling a list of mourners and asking for ‘rsvps’ within 24 hours.

It is likely to include music supremo Tyler Perry who has been supporting both families and a host of other celebrities who have worked in the entertainment business with Bobbi Kristina’s parents.

Perry’s private jet is standing by to airlift her body to Newark, New Jersey for burial at Fairview Cemetery in Westfield after the service in Georgia.

Bobbi Kristina’s grandmother, the singer Cissy Houston, will attend a memorial service at the New Hope Baptist Church in Newark NJ, where she and regularly joins the congregation as she did last Sunday.

It is the same church where the service for Whitney Houston was conducted in February 2012 before her interment at Westfield.

The octogenarian last saw Bobbi Kristina at the Emory University Hospital in Atlanta, a fortnight after she was found unconscious in a tub at her home on January 31.

Bobbi Kristina’s father Bobby Brown is liaising over details for Saturday with Pat , who is the wife of Whitney’s brother Gary, although there have been disagreements regarding certain aspects of the service and those invited.

There is further tension over what will happen to the estimated $20 million fortune left by Bobbi Kristina’s mother.

She entrusted the carrying out of the will to senior members of the Houston family and decreed her only daughter should inherit the bulk of the fortune when she turned 30.
