Bobby Brown, Jr., the son of R&B singer Bobby Brown has died.
TMZ reported that he was found dead Wednesday in his L.A. area home, citing a person described as a source close to the family. While L.A. authorities have not announced the cause of his death, they don’t believe that there was foul play.
While Bobby Brown has not commented on his son’s death, Bobby Brown, Jr.’s half-brother Landon Brown confirmed the news via social media.
“I love you forever, King,” Landon captioned under an image of his brother.
In years of tragic losses for the singer Bobby Brown, the news comes five years after the death of his daughter Bobbi Kristina who passed at 22 years old. She was found face-down and unresponsive in a bathtub in January 2015. She remained on life support for six months before her passing in July 2015. The coroner ruled that her cause of death was drowning in the tub while she had toxic cocaine and alcohol levels in her system.
Three years earlier, Bobbi Kristina’s mother, R&B singer Whitney Houston, died similarly from an accidental overdose while in a bathtub at the Beverly Hilton Hotel on Feb. 11, 2012. And, Bobbi Kristina’s boyfriend, Nick Gordon also died earlier this year.
Bobby Brown, Jr. is one of Bobby Brown’s seven children. His mother, Kim Ward, dated Bobby Brown on and off for 11 years before the singer married Houston.
Bobby Brown, Jr. was 28.
Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends.
