Another said, “Omg. I personally know Bobby Brown Jr., I met him when I lived in Los Angeles and he ran with the same crowd I was friends with. He sent me a message on FB two months ago asking how I was doing...This is crazy! I’m at a loss…”

News of Brown Jr.’s death is yet another unfathomable loss from Bobby Brown Sr. and the Brown family.

Whitney Houston, was married to Bobby Brown Sr. from 1992 - 2007, died in 2012 after accidentally drowning in a bathtub. A coroner also ruled that cocaine and heart disease played a role in her death. 

The couple had a daughter together — Bobbi Kristina Brown, Brown Jr.’s half-sister — who died three years later in an eerily similar fashion. 

She was found unresponsive in a bathtub at her own home, and after six months of hospice care, she died in July of 2015. 

Her boyfriend at the time, Nick Gordon, was found liable in her death. He died of an accidental heroin overdose on New Year’s Day in 2020.

“I can’t fathom losing two children and a soul mate. RIP Bobby Brown JR. All positive everything to Bobby Brown,” one fan wrote on Twitter.

Bobby Brown Sr. has yet to release an official statement on his son’s death.

Brown Jr. is survived by his father and his five siblings, La’Princia Brown, Landon Brown, Cassius Brown, Hendrix Estelle Sheba Brown, and Bodhi Jameson Rein Brown.

Our deepest condolences go out to the Brown family during this difficult time, and may Bobby Brown Jr. rest in peace.
