Bobby Brown believes that Bobbi Kristina’s ex-boyfriend Nick Gordon was involved in her death and the death of his ex-wife Whitney Houston. During an appearance on the Facebook Watch show Red Table Talk on April 14, the 52-year-old singer made the surprising assertion.
Bobby said, “Definitely,” when asked specifically by Jada Pinkett Smith whether he thinks there was “foul play” in his daughter’s 2015 death. The singer of “My Prerogative” also believes Nick, who died of a heroin overdose in January 2020, drugged the 22-year-old.
Bobby explained, “He was the only one there in both cases, my ex-wife and my daughter, and they both died the same way.” “I believe so,” he said when asked if he thought Nick “killed Whitney as well.”
In February 2012, the music industry was shocked when the singer of “Greatest Love of All” was discovered dead in her Beverly Hilton Hotel bathtub after accidentally drowning. According to ABC News, tests later revealed Whitney had traces of cocaine and marijuana in her bloodstream.
Bobbi Kristina was discovered face down in a bathtub in the Georgia home she shared with Nick three years later. Six months later, she died of lobar pneumonia, which was caused by being immersed “in water” and exacerbated by “drug overdose,” according to an autopsy.
Nick (a childhood friend who began dating Bobbi Kristina after Whitney died) was accused of physically abusing the young singer and was later found to be responsible for her tragic death.
Bobby was asked if Nick gave drugs to Whitney and Bobbi Kristina by Red Table Talk co-host Adrienne Banfield-Jones (aka Gammy). He replied, “Yeah, I think.”
Bobby Never Had The Opportunity To Confront Nick
Regrettably, the bereaved father claims he never had the opportunity to confront Nick until he died of a heroin overdose at 30. Bobby, a former opioid addict and recovering alcoholic, said, “I was in rehab at the time when he died.” “I had intended on approaching the young man after I got out of recovery, only to find out how my daughter was doing in her final days. But, no, I never had the opportunity to inquire of him or speak with him.”
Bobby also said he had no idea his daughter had been the domestic abuse victim. “I found out after she died,” he said. “That was the most difficult part. I’m not sure why I didn’t notice it, but since her mother died, we hadn’t spent nearly as much time together as we should have.”
Bobby has since tragically lost another child. Bobby Jr., Bobbi’s older brother, died in November 2020 at the age of 27. His girlfriend discovered him unresponsive in his Los Angeles home. His death was caused by a lethal combination of alcohol, cocaine, and fentanyl, according to an autopsy reported in March 2021.
On the other hand, Bobby maintained that his son was not a drug user. The father-of-seven explained, “He wasn’t a user.” “He was still trying out new ideas. It wasn’t like he was addicted to drugs like I was when I was in his shoes. I was reliant. It was just what I wanted. He was a young man who experimented with the wrong stuff, and it got him kicked out.”
The Songwriter went on to say that he feels “guilty”. This is because he thinks his drug abuse addiction “played a role” in his son’s decision to test something.
Bobby Brown Says: “It’s My Duty To Remind People It Can Kill You”
Brown struggles with guilt after the deaths of his children Bobby Brown Jr. and Bobbi Kristina Brown due to drug abuse.
The star opens up to host Jada Pinkett Smith, 49, about the range of emotions he’s experienced after losing two of his children, as well as his ex-wife Whitney Houston, to drugs — and what he hopes others will take away from his experiences.
Brown, 52, fought back the tears as he said, “It’s my duty to remind people that it can kill you.”
Brown is expressing regret for his problems with substance abuse in the past, which he believes may have influenced his son’s decision to try drugs.
“I reached a point where I needed it. To be precise I hadn’t been wasted in a long time. I wasn’t even a little tipsy at this point. It was enough for me to wake up. I needed to work on a day-to-day basis and avoid the shakes, “Brown remarked. “I was able to catch myself just in time.”
He said it can’t get any worse because he knew where he was.
Brown Has Made It Clear That He Has Been Drug-Free For 19 Years
Brown revealed on Red Table Talk that he has been drug-free for 19 years and alcohol-free for nearly a year.
“Losing [my son] was as sudden as losing my daughter,” the Grammy winner explained. “We had only been in the studio two nights before. It was something that struck me like a tonne of bricks. He was a musician who played the piano and drums and was a fantastic writer. My son was both an instructor and a student. He learned from anyone he came into contact with, and he taught as much as he learned.”
The bereaved father continued, “He was someone that I loved as a young man and how he matured. He simply wanted to be a part of something extraordinary. When he grinned, he simply brightened up the room.”
He went on to say, “My children are no longer with me. My time has passed, and my time has contributed to my son’s belief that he should measure anything. That makes me feel bad.”
