Bobby Brown is safe and sound and was NOT hospitalized after being hit by a speeding car, according to his lawyer.
The clarification comes after Brown’s sister, Leolah, posted a message on social media claiming the singer was smashed by a hit and run driver, and that he was is very bad shape.
“There are reports circulating that Bobby Brown was hit by a car over the weekend and substantially injured both his legs. The reports are false and Bobby Brown was in Los Angeles enjoying time with his family this weekend,” the statement from attorney Christopher Brown reads.
He continues, “Mr. Brown was not struck by a vehicle over the weekend and statements from Leolah Brown to the contrary are fake news.”
In fact, we’re told Brown is in great shape and that, “RBRM (Ronnie, Bobby, Ricky & Mike) are preparing to tour Japan and Australia in October 2019 and Bobby Brown will be looking to reconnect with his fans in those countries.”
Bobby’s sister Leolah Brown sent the social media world swirling after she posted a message claiming someone tried to mow down her brother with a car.
The message included specifics about his alleged injury, and claimed,
“Yes Bobby Brown got hit by a SPEEDING car WHILE WALKING! And NO he was NOT in a car accident! This car CAME STRAIGHT FOR HIM & TRIED TO DAM KILL HIM! Broke his bones! BOTH his legs are messed up! And whoevers [sic] saying he was inside of a car IS A DAM LIAR! My brother was WALKING down the street AND A CAR CAME STRAIGHT FOR HIM!!! AND HIT HIM TO KILL HIM!! THEY REPORT EVERY DAM THING ELSE HE’S EVER DONE IN HIS DAM LIFE! SO WHY DID NOT ANYONE INCLUDING HIS SO CALLED WIFE GO TO THE PRESS WITH THAT ONE!!?? WHY DID YOU NOT WANT THAT TO LEAK OUT!!?? YEAH I KNOW WHY!!! OH YES THE HELL I DO!! AND YOU CAN SAY WHAT YOU WILL!! I CARE NOT! BUT I TELL YOU WHAT I DO CARE ABOUT! MY BROTHER THATS WHAT! AND I HAPPEN TO TRULY LOVE MY BROTHER UNCONDITIONALLY!!! AND BETTER NOT NOTHING!! AND I MEAN NOTHING ELSE HAPPEN TO MY BROTHER!! YOU ALL ARE NOT GOING TO KILL MY WHOLE FAMILY AND KEEP THINKING YOU CAN GET AWAY WITH IT!!! NO NOT THIS ONE!!! NOT ON MY WATCH!! WHO THE HELL DO YOU THINK WE ARE!!! IM CERTAINLY NOT YOUR PUNK!!!”
Its unclear why Leolah was trying to circulate false information, but Bobby’s team is clear that it never happened.
Bobby’s sister has been a problem in the past, and caused tension at both Whitney Houston and Bobbi Kristina’s funeral after Leolah claimed she walked out due to the messages given by Pat Houston. Pat is the executor of Whitney’s estate.
