    Hours after his ex-wife’s funeral in Newark, New Jersey on Saturday, Bobby Brown will be on stage at Mohegan Sun, performing with New Edition.

    There were reports that Brown was being kept from the funeral for Whitney Houston, but a spokesperson for Brown shot down those rumors, NBC News reported.

    People Magazine is reporting that he will attend the funeral to support his daughter.

    Brown was on tour in Mississippi with his former band when he learned that Houston died on Saturday in Beverly Hills. He took the stage that night,  but then flew out to Los Angeles to be with the couple’s daughter.

    New Edition resumed its tour without Brown, but he will perform on Thursday night in Maryland, at Mohegan Sun on Saturday and then in Newark, New Jersey on Sunday, according to spokespeople for Mohegan Sun.

    The Mohegan Sun show begins at 8 p.m.
