Tragedy has hit Bobby Brown‘s family once again after the singer’s second-oldest son has died.
Bobby Brown Jr., a budding singer himself, was found dead in his Los Angeles home on Wednesday. He was just 28 years old.
One of his father’s seven children, Bobby Brown Jr. was found by emergency medical technicians responding to a call Wednesday afternoon. It was unclear who notified the authorities. Los Angeles Police Department public information officer Jeff Lee told USA Today it didn’t appear that there was any evidence of foul play. TMZ reported Bobby Brown’s death first Wednesday evening.
No cause of death was reported immediately and the local coroner was expected to examine his death.
Bobby Brown Jr. was apparently 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 music on streaming services dates back to 2018.
Madame Noire noted that “Bobby Brown Jr. was featured on the short-lived Bravo reality series Being Bobby Brown.”
Not much else is readily known about Bobby Brown Jr., but it was impossible not to recall the tragic deaths of his half-sister Bobbi Kristina Brown and her mother — his former step-mother — Whitney Houston. Their untimely deaths were both caused by accidental drowning because of drug use.
Nick Gordon, the longtime boyfriend and former fiancé of Bobbi Kristina, was ultimately found responsible for her death and ordered to pay $36 million to her estate. However, Gordon was found dead after overdosing on heroin earlier this year.
Bobby Brown Jr. was very protective of Bobbi Kristina and wasn’t thrilled about all the attention he was receiving in the wake of his sister’s death. Back in 2015, he expressed his frustrations and grief over his sister’s death in a series f since-deleted tweets.
“People really dont give a fuck about you unless your relevant, and they don’t love you till your famous or gone. I don’t want these follows,” one tweet said.
“This is real life for me, this is my life, my sister. Not a fucking trending topic,” he wrote in another tweet.
He ultimately apologized for the tweets and explained in further detail his feelings behind the reaction to his sister’s death.
“My frustration wasn’t towards people giving me their condolences, it was the fact my followers increased a lot, I find it very morbid,” he tweeted before deleting that post, as well.
Bobby Brown Jr.’s mother is Kim Ward, who split from his father in 2011.
