Bobby Brown is ‘devastated’ following the death of his son Bobby Brown Jr. earlier this week. The 28-year-old was found in his Los Angeles home on Wednesday (Nov. 18) after the Los Angeles Police Department responded to a medical emergency. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
Speaking with TMZ on Thursday (Nov. 19), Brown asked for his fans to please keep his family in their prayers at this time. “Losing my son at this point in our lives has devastated my family. There are no words to explain the pain.”
Bobby Brown Jr.’s older brother, Landon Brown, took to his Instagram to break his silence about the death of his loved one with a black-and-white photo, writing, “I love you forever King.” He shared another post with his brother, a video, of the siblings singing along to Justin Bieber’s “Love Yourself.”
“Everything hurts King…” he captioned in the post.
TMZ reported that the family of Bobby Brown Jr. was experiencing flu-like symptoms before his death, but that he had not tested positive for COVID-19. His cause of death still remains unknown, but TMZ reported on Thursday that an investigation is ongoing.
The 28-year-old was the half brother of Bobbi Kristina Brown, 22, who died five years ago after she was found unresponsive and not breathing in a bathtub at her Roswell, Georgia home. After being treated in hospital and later put on life support for nearly six months, Bobbi Kristina died in July 2015. An autopsy showed that drug intoxication and immersion which led to pneumonia and brain damage.
Brown Jr. is one of Bobby’s seven children and is the son of Kim Ward, who Bobby Brown Sr. reportedly dated before he got engaged to singer Whitney Houston. The couple wed in 1992 until 2007. Houston died in 2012 after an accidental drowning in a bathtub, a coroner ruled heart disease and cocaine as contributing factors.
According to Deadline.com, Bobby Brown Jr was 13 when he appeared on the family’s 2005 Bravo reality show, Being Bobby Brown.
