Bobby Brown is no stranger to the spotlight. But now the original R&B bad boy is set to tell his story on his own terms.
May 31 will see the stage blazer form the focus of A&E‘s ‘Biography’ special chronicling his colorful life – both the light and the dark embedded within.
Promising a raw and unvarnished insight into the peaks and troughs of Brown’s journey, it will see the singer himself share his narrative like never before.
Naturally, his well-documented marriage to Whitney Houston will be addressed in earnest.
And, in a freshly unleashed trailer, the ‘Don’t Be Cruel’ singer made a unique remark that is sure to set tongues wagging.
See what we mean below…
As widely known, Houston died of a drug overdose in 2012.
Her tragic passing at age 48 came six years after her divorce from Brown.
Their 12-year marriage was a constant in 90s and 00s headlines and was defined by drugs, arrests, and failed rehab stints.
In an expanded look at the ‘Biography: Bobby Brown,’ the New Edition member claims:
“I think she’d still be here if we hadn’t divorced.”
He goes on to unpack how he felt they would have fought their addictions together.
Elsewhere, he opens up about the death of their daughter Bobbi Kristina and how he believes Whitney came to him in his dreams telling him to turn off the 22-year-old’s life support after months of her laying unresponsive in a coma.
