Bobby Brown, one of the most notable names in music and ex-husband to the late legend Whitney Houston, recently opened up about his experience since the passing of two of his children. He shared during an interview with People magazine about how he has dealt with the loss.
Brown revealed that he dreams a lot of his late kids and that they’re always together in his dreams. Brown once struggled heavily with drug and alcohol abuse, and the press heavily publicized his addiction.
The “Can you stand the rain” singer also spoke about how he had to find a new purpose for himself after their deaths. Brown is now an activist who speaks out against drug abuse and helps addicts find their way to sobriety. Read on to find out more.
Brown Dreams Of His Kids A Lot
During the exclusive interview with People, Brown revealed that he has a beautiful recurring dream of his two late kids. The 53-year-old music icon said, “I always see them at beaches or in fields.”
Bobbi Kristina and Bobby Jr. died in 2015 and 2020, respectively, due to drug abuse. Kristina was 22-years-old, and Junior was 27-years-old when they passed away, leaving their father and family devastated.
Brown revealed more about the dreams, saying, “They’re running away, but they’re laughing. And they’re always together. I didn’t have many dreams about Bobbi Kris before Bobby Jr. died. But then all of a sudden — floods of dreams.”
Brown Has A Docu-series Coming Soon
Brown had the interview with People in preparation for the release of his highly anticipated A&E docu-series, titled “Biography: Bobby Brown,” which premieres on May 30th. The docu-series is split into two parts and explores a lot of the famous moments from his life.
Some of these moments include his widely publicized battle with addiction, his tumultuous marriage to music star Houston, and two of the worst times in his life, the loss of Kristina and Junior.
Kristina was found unresponsive while in her bathtub on January 31st, 2015, and later died after spending months in a coma. Doctors found a mix of drugs in her system, and the press compared the nature of her death to that of her mother, Houston, who overdosed in a bathtub in her hotel room in 2011.
Junior was Brown’s son with his ex Kim Ward, and he was found dead in his apartment in Los Angeles on November 18th, 2020, after he had an overdose of alcohol, fentanyl, and cocaine.
Brown Speaks Out Against Drug Abuse
With all the loss Brown has experienced because of drug abuse, it’s no surprise he and his wife, Alicia Etheredge, are now activists who speak out against the dangers of drug abuse, fentanyl and cocaine in particular.
He said, “No family, no father should have to go through this. (Kristina and Junior) were both musicians and loved to sing. Their relationship was tight. They’d get into their little tiffs, but they were thick as thieves.”
The “Every Little Step” singer also spoke about he is still dealing with the loss of his kids. He said, “I’ve cried, but not how I want to. I really want to just scream to the top of my lungs and cry, but it’s just not there.”
He Has The Help Of His Family
Brown himself was notorious for his drug and alcohol addiction issues during his prime time as a musician. Now, decades later, he is sober and in therapy and says he is doing much better.
Aside from the late Kristina and Junior, Brown still has five children left, Landon, LaPrincia, Cassius, Bodhi, and Hendrix, who, along with Etheredge, are his support system during his darkest days.
His constant dreams of Kristina and Junior being happy and together also comfort him when he sleeps. The “My Prerogative” singer said, “That’s enough for a father to feel like God has them.”
