Bobby Brown is denying claims — made by his own sister — that he was hospitalized after being hit by a speeding car.
Brown’s lawyer, Christopher Brown (no relation), released a statement via the singer saying the alleged accident ever happened.
“There are reports circulating that Bobby Brown was hit by a car over the weekend and substantially injured both his legs. The reports are false and Bobby Brown was in Los Angeles enjoying time with his family this weekend," the statement reads. "Mr. Brown was not struck by a vehicle over the weekend and statements from Leolah Brown to the contrary are fake news."
According to a source close to The Blast, "RBRM (Ronnie, Bobby, Ricky & Mike) are preparing to tour Japan and Australia in October 2019 and Bobby Brown will be looking to reconnect with his fans in those countries.”
The clarification comes after the music icon’s sister Leolah Brown claimed on social media that Bobby was the victim of a hit-and-run and the driver broke his legs, leaving Brown hospitalized.
