Bobby Brown Jr., the 28-year-old son of
Brown, was found dead in his California home Wednesday,
according to the Los Angeles
Police responded to a medical emergency at 1:50 p.m. to
find the deceased male, later identified as Brown Jr., according to LAPD public
information officer Jeff Lee. No further details were available
as to the cause of death,
pending a coroner’s examination. But no foul play was
suspected, said Lee.
Brown Jr., who was following in his father’s footsteps
with a music career, was one of two children from the 11-year on-and-off
relationship between Brown and Kim Ward that ended in 2011. Brown was later
married to singer Whitney Houston.
One of seven Brown children, Brown Jr. was 13 when
he appeared on the family‘s
short-lived 2005 Bravo reality show, “Being Bobby Brown,” along with
his half-sister, Bobbi Kristina
Brown. Brown Jr. dropped his first music single “Say
Something” in September.
Superstar singer Houston was found dead
Feb. 11, 2012, in a Beverly Hills hotel
bathtub, the victim of an accidental drowning brought on by heart disease and
longtime cocaine abuse, as the Los Angeles coroner
found weeks later.
Brown and Houston’s daughter, Bobbi Kristina
Brown, was found face down and unconscious in the bathtub of her
Georgia home three years later almost to the week, on Jan. 31, 2015. Bobbi Kristina died
at age 22 in July 2015 in an Atlanta-area hospice. She was
buried next to her mother in a New Jersey cemetery.
Her family blamed her ex-fiancé, Nick
Gordon , who was never charged in the case. Gordon was
found responsible in a wrongful death civil
lawsuit and ordered to pay $36 million to Brown’s estate. He died at age 30 on Jan.
