Bobbi Kristina Brown's "Sweet 16"-themed funeral is drawing controversy from relatives, RadarOnline.com has learned.

As RadarOnline.com previously reported, relatives in Pat Houston's camp vowed they would seek to make the affair -- slated for Saturday in Alpharetta, Ga. -- a celebration of her life, and "the Sweet 16 she never had."

But that plan has come under fire from critics within the musical clan -- notably Dionne Warwick.

The "That's What Friends Are For"  singer, who presided over the funeral of her cousin, Bobbi Kristina's late mother Whitney Houston, "feels that is stupid and disrespectful to Bobbi Kristina," a family source told Daily Mail.

"Dionne is planning a trip and threatening to not attend the funeral," according to the source, "because Pat Houston is taking over even though she should be making decisions with Bobby, and not doing it on her own."

Warwick has deep resentment for Pat Houston, sources told the outlet, because she feels like the wife of Whitney's brother Gary is "acting like she is the head of the Houston family, when in reality she married into the family."

The source added that it's common knowledge "that Bobbi Kristina and Pat didn't get along well after her mother died, because she was trying to run her life and tell her what to do with the money she inherited."

Readers, do you feel the "Sweet 16" theme is inappropriate? Sound off in comments.
