Following a memorial service in metro Atlanta on Saturday, Bobbi Kristina Brown is being buried today in New Jersey.

Reportedly someone has sold a photo of Bobbi Kristina's open casket for six figures, giving both sides of her family something new to fight about.

Tension among family members swirled while she was in hospice care.  At one point someone supposedly took a photo of the incapacitated young woman and tried shopping it to celebrity media outlets,  spurring outrage among her relatives.  Look for more if the supposed casket photo surfaces.

It's unclear if her aunt Leolah Brown will attend. Leolah stormed out of the Saturday service and spoke to the media at length while the service was still going on before going back inside the church. She later expounded further on the issues troubling her , most of which seem to involve Pat Houston, Bobbi Kristina's legally appointed co-guardian and executor of Whitney Houston's will. Bobbi Kristina was her mother's sole heir; it's unclear who gets what now that the 22-year-old has passed away as well.

Bobbi Kristina will be interred next to her mother, who died in February 2012. Like her daughter she was discovered unresponsive in a bathtub at the end.

Here's a look at the sad scene today. Please return for updates.
