The 52-year-old shared that after he performed “My Prerogative” on the awards stage, he headed backstage, where he ran into Houston.

“Whitney walked up and was bumping me. She just kept bumping me,” he added. “I turned around and I said, 'You know you keep bumping me.' She said, 'I know.'”

“From there it was just love at first sight,” he continued. “Something about her eyes made me melt inside. I said, 'If I ask you on a date, would you say yes?' She said, 'Of course.'”

Not missing a beat, the pair went on their first date the following day and enjoyed shopping together in Beverly Hills, having dinner at The Ivy, and later concluding the evening where they “just chilled.”

Brown and Houston would later marry in 1992 for 14-years before officially ending their marriage in 2007. Whitney Houston would later tragically pass away in 2012.
