Bobby Brown has had to endure some devastating losses in the last decade. The 90’s R&B star saw his ex-wife Whitney Houston and their daughter Bobbi Kristina pass in similar fashion just years apart, and most recently lost his son Bobby Brown Jr. as well. Brown has been taking time to grief the most recent loss and process his feelings, but is now speaking out and making some shocking allegations.
Last month we reported on Brown and how he’s been doing since losing his son last fall. “Please keep my family in your prayers at this time,” the singer said in his official remarks to the press at the time. “Losing my son at this point in our lives has devastated my family. There are no words to explain the pain.” Bobby Brown Jr. was 28 when he passed.
“I want to make it clear, he wasn’t a user. He would experiment with different things but he wasn’t dependent on d**gs like I was when I was in my situation,” said Bobby Brown recently during an interview with Red Table Talk. “I depended. I needed it. He was a young man who tried the wrong stuff and it took him out of here.”
“Bobby Brown Jr. was not feeling well a couple days before his passing, with flu-like symptoms,” said Christopher Brown, Esq. of Brown & Rosen LLC, counsel to Bobby Brown. “This is a tragic loss, and we will be letting the authorities conduct their investigation of his passing.”
Whitney Houston and daughter Bobbi Kristina were the subject of a Lifetime documentary earlier this year titled Didn’t We Almost Have It All documenting their lives and the mysteriously similar matter in which they passed. The documentary showed a different side to Whitney, who has seen her life get picked apart in the years since her passing by people looking to uncover the “real Whitney”.
Bobby opened up about his thoughts on Whitney and Bobbi Kristina’s deaths during the same Red Table Talk interview. He blamed himself for “blurring the lines” for his kids while growing up, exposing them to toxic environments.
“She saw firsthand things that were wrong,” he said. “It confused things and she was unfortunately stuck in an abusive relationship with a boy who basically controlled her to the point where her life was taken.”
When asked if he believes Nick Gordon, Bobbi Kristina’s fiancee, was responsible for her death, Brown said, “Definitely. Yes, definitely.” When pressed further about whether or not he believes Gordon d**gged Bobbi Kristina, he replied, “Yes definitely.”
He went on to allude that he felt Gordon also aiding in Whitney’s passing, and possibly played the role of supplier for his ex-wife and daughter.
