In a statement on his son’s death in Nov. 2020, Bobby Brown said of his son’s death to TMZ, “Please keep my family in your prayers at this time. Losing my son at this point in our lives has devastated my family. There are no words to explain the pain.”
TMZ reported that talked to sources within LA law enforcement about Bobby Brown Jr’s death. According to TMZ, it looks like LA County DA will be looking into possible charges in Brown’s death due to the drugs found in his system. Why? TMZ nor its sources would say. Just that charges are being considered (probably for whoever sold it to Brown Jr?) and it could be kicked back for further investigation.
Either way other outlets, like CNN and USA Today reported that Bobby Brown Jr’s death was an accident.

The death of Bobby Brown Jr is one in the latest of tragedies to have hit the Brown family. Everyone, of course, remembers the death of Bobby Brown’s ex-wife Whitney Houston back in 2012. She was found dead after drowning in a hotel room bathtub. According to the coroner, heart disease & cocaine were contributing factors in her death. Houston was 48 at the time of her passing.
Following this tragedy three years later, Bobbi Kristina Brown, the only child of Bobby Brown & Whitney Houston, was also found unresponsive in a bathtub. The 22-year-old lingered on for about six months following this before passing away at an Atlanta area hospice facility in July 2015. She was only 22 at the time of her own death and was buried next to her mother.
Bobbi Kristina Brown’s death was caused by drug intoxication & immersion which led to pneumonia & brain damage. Either way, it’s clear that the Brown family has had to deal with a lot of tragedy, especially in loss of two very young lives.
