Tragedy befalls the Bobby Brown family again as the son of the singer, Bobby Brown Jr, was found dead at a Los Angeles home on Wednesday (Nov 19). He was 28.
Los Angeles Police spokesman Officer Jeff Lee said officers were responding to a medical emergency when they found Brown Jr’s body around 1.50pm at a home in Encino, The Los Angeles Times reported.
No cause of death was immediately reported. The local coroner was expected to examine his death.
As NewsOne observed, Bobby Brown Jr. was in the process of trying to launch his own successful singing career. Posts from his Instagram show he was prepping a music video for a song called “Say Something” back in September.
His son’s death is the latest in a string of misfortune for Bobby Brown.
In 2012, his ex-wife, legendary singer Whitney Houston, was found dead after drowning in a Beverly Hills hotel room bathtub. Coroner’s officials ruled Houston’s death accidental and said heart disease and cocaine were contributing factors.
Their daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown, was found face-down in a bathtub at her suburban Atlanta home on Jan 31, 2015. She was in a coma for six months before dying in hospice care at age 22.
An autopsy showed that she had morphine, cocaine, alcohol and prescription drugs in her body.
Bobbi Kristina’s ex-boyfriend Nick Gordon was found dead in January 2020, with his cause of death determined as a heroin overdose.
The Brown family had blamed him for Kristina’s death in a lawsuit but he was never charged in the case. He was, however, found liable in a wrongful death lawsuit, with a judge ordering him to pay $36 million to Bobbi Kristina’s family.
Brown started his singing career as a member of the R&B group New Edition before becoming a solo artiste with hits such as My Prerogative and Every Little Step.
