Just hours after making the scene at ex-wife Whitney Houston’s funeral on Saturday, Brown jetted to the Mohegan Sun casino in Connecticut to perform with New Edition, where he crooned classics like “Mr. Telephone Man” and “Tenderoni.” Later, he and his sizable entourage wined and dined. People reports that his group was spotted dining at Bobby Flay’s Bar Americain, and that Brown appeared “relaxed and low-key.” He drank some Grey Goose and “did a little dance” for neighboring diners. But the good mood apparently didn’t last.
Brown gambled halfheartedly (“in the end, it looked like his heart wasn’t in it”), then slunk off to Jasper White’s Summer Shack to regroup over seafood. Brown and crew hunkered down at a “secluded back table,” where the emotional crooner put his head down on a table and indulged in a quiet snack and drinks with his fiancée. “He seemed to really crash,” People notes. In the end, he and his posse retired to their hotel room around 2 a.m.
