Bobby Brown is in the news again.
This time, the American music icon has identified late Bobby Kristina’s boyfriend, Nick Gordon as masterminding her death.
Recall that his ex-wife Whitney Houston was the first to die. Her daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown also died in similar circumstances.
When the singer opened up on these deaths recently, his emotional outburst over the loss of his ex-wife, Whitney Houston and children generated a controversy on social media with many fans fingering the star, while some others complimented him for speaking out.
In the Interview, Brown revealed that he believed Bobby Kristina’s boyfriend, Nick Gordon definitely provided drugs which resulted in the deaths of the two Houstons.
In an episode of “Red Table Talk” published on Facebook during the week, Brown was asked point-blank if he believed there was “foul play” involved in Houston’s death.
In February 2012, Houston, 48, was found dead in a bathtub in the Beverly Hills Hilton hotel. Her death was said to be an accident.
Houston’s daughter, Bobbi Kristina, was also found dead in a bath tub in January 2015 “tragic circumstances that eerily mirrored her mother’s death,” as “Red Table Talk” host Jada Pinkett Smith put it.
She died after several months in a coma, at the age of 22.
On the “Red Table Talk,” Brown disclosed that he believed that Bobbi Kristina’s former boyfriend Nick Gordon, who was found liable for her death in a civil case, had a role to play in Houston’s death as well.
Gordon also died last year from a heroin overdose, at the age of 30.
He added, “He was the only one there with both situations, with my ex-wife and with my daughter, and they both died the same way,” Brown told Pinkett Smith and her co-hosts, Adrienne Banfield-Norris and Willow Smith.
Smith went on to ask Brown candidly if he believed Gordon “killed Whitney.”
“I believe so,” Brown responded.
When asked to elaborate, Brown said he believed Gordon provided both Houston and Bobbi Kristina with the drugs that led to their deaths.
“This is my opinion of who I think this young man was,” he said. “Being around my daughter and being around my ex-wife, I think he was more so a provider of, you know, party favours.”
Brown said he’d been planning to confront Gordon about his theories, but “never got a chance to.”
According to the Vanguard, the 52-year-old singer also said he didn’t know about Gordon’s alleged physical abuse of Bobbi Kristina until after she died, which he says was “the hard part.”
“I didn’t see it and she didn’t tell me about it,” Brown said, adding that he and his daughter didn’t spend as much time together after Houston’s death as maybe they should have.
Brown said his daughter was supposed to visit him two days after she was found in the bathtub. “If I could just get those two days back, she’d still be here, because I would have found out what was going on to do something about it,” he said.
Meanwhile, since the interview went viral on social media, many fans have slammed Brown for being responsible for the death of Houston and her daughter, just as others have exonerated him from the tragic end of his ex-wife.
One of those that slammed Brown, kass_doingme opined that Whitney Houston was responsible for her own death, not Nick Gordon.
“So… Nick Gordon was responsible for Whitney’s death? Ummm no. Whitney was responsible for her own death. She was doing drugs way before Nick was born! And if someone is to blame for his daughter’s death, blame Whitney and Bobby for that one,” the fan reacted.
Another fan, thee.rickgrimes said he has no respect for Brown. “No respect for this man. Spit in Whitney Houstons face? Trash. Couldn’t even be a father. I am sympathetic for your losses (And the rest of the world who grieve) but No respect,” the fan snapped.
