Guests expected to attend Saturday's service are being kept under wraps by her aunt and co-executor of her will, Pat Houston. They are likely to include Tyler Perry, who was a close friend of Whitney Houston. The writer and producer broke his silence regarding Bobbi Kristina's passing on Tuesday, writing on his official Facebook page: "I'm a writer with no words… Bobbi Kris."

Bobbi Kristina passed away on 26 July, almost six months after she was discovered unconscious in the bathtub at her home. A statement released by her family later confirmed the sad news: "Bobbi Kristina Brown passed away on July, 26 2015 surrounded by her family. She is finally at peace in the arms of God. We want to thank everyone for their tremendous amount of love and support during these last few months."

Her grieving father has since spoken of his "unimaginable" loss in a statement released by his lawyer on Monday, the day after his daughter passed away.

"Krissy was and is an angel. I am completely numb at this time," said the 46-year-old. "My family must find a way to live with her in spirit and honor her memory. Our loss is unimaginable."

He added: "We thank everyone for the prayers for Krissy and our family as we mourn my baby girl."
