Bobby Brown Opens Up About Drugs, Alcohol Addiction, & Death of Multiple Family Members On ‘Red Table Talk’

Published: Wednesday 14th Apr 2021 by Sam

For as much success as Bobby Brown has achieved, hardships have unfortunately been a defining aspect of his narrative.

During his marriage to the late great Whitney Houston, the GRAMMY-winning performer embraced a “bad boy” persona that very much played out publicly.

Court visits were a constant and soon drug addiction plagued his and Houston’s image.

In the decade since, drugs especially have led to tragic losses for Brown – who has lived to witness the deaths of Houston, their only daughter Bobbi Kristina, and most recently his son Bobby Brown Jr.

In a new appearance on Red Table Talk with Jada Pinkett Smith, Brown opens up about the tragedies as well as his later addiction to alcohol.

He said:

“[Because of] alcohol, I started losing bodily function. My body started shutting down because I was drinking that much.

My body just was giving out on me. Even with alcohol, I got to the point where I needed it.”

I wasn’t getting drunk anymore. I wasn’t getting a little tipsy anymore. I needed it to wake up. I needed it to stop the shakes, to function on a day-to-day basis. For me, it wasn’t recreational.”
