Bobby Brown Jr. found dead at the age of 28.
Bobby Brown Jr. was found dead on Wednesday in his L.A. home. The son of 80’s Rap and R&B star Bobby Brown was 28. Authorities do not believe foul play was involved.
Brown Jr. is survived by five siblings: LaPrincia, 30, Landon, 34, Cassius, 11, Bodhi, 5, and Hendrix, 4.
Brown’s oldest son, Landon, shared a picture of Bobby Jr. to his Instagram following his passing. “I love you forever King,” he wrote.
The second child Brown has lost in recent years.
This is not the first child Brown has lost recently. One of his daughters with Whitney Houston, Bobbi Kristina, passed in 2015 after drowning in a tub with toxic levels of alcohol and cocaine in her system. Her mother, and Brown’s ex-spouse, died in a similar way three years earlier.
At the time of her death her family suspected that Kristina may have been related to domestic abuse from her ex-fiancé Nick Gordon. Medical experts were unable to determine if her death was “due to intentional or accidental causes.”
Gordon was eventually found responsible in a wrongful death civil lawsuit and ordered to pay $36 million to Kristina’s estate. He also died earlier this year.
Bobbi and Kristina both starred in the short-lived 2005 Bravo reality show, “Being Bobby Brown.”
In July, Brown took to Instagram to commemorate the five year anniversary of her death. “There’s no way to explain how I feel I miss you so much little girl,” he wrote. “You stay in my heart on my mind every day daddy loves you.”
The elder Brown made a name for himself in the 80’s, performing with the group New Edition, and eventually releasing several successful solo albums, and appearing in movies such as Ghostbusters II. Some of his most popular songs include “My Prerogative,” “She Ain’t Worth It,” and “Every Little Step.” He also won a pair of Grammys. Brown was married to the late Whitney Houston from 1992 to 2007, and has been married to Alicia Etheredge since 2012.
