Too many, he’s a bad boy, bad influence and drug attict, in reality he’s a talented entertainer, father, husband and the bad boy of stage. Tomorrow on NBC’s TODAY, for the first time since the tragic and unexpected death of his ex wife superstar Whitney Houston on February 11th, Bobby Brown will speak for the first time. When the news broke of the death of Whitney Houston, Twitter and media outlets were quick to put the blame on Bobby for introducing Whitney to drugs and the problems that eventually led to her death. In this two-part interview Bobby finally addresses the slander and rumors. “I didn’t get high [on narcotics] before I met Whitney, I smoked weed, I drank the beer, but no, I wasn’t the one that got Whitney on drugs at all.” He says drugs were a part of Whitney’s life “way before” they got together.
On Thursday on TODAY, Landon, Bobby Jr., and La’Princia Bobby‘s children and his fiancée, Alicia Etheridge will be interviewed along with Bobby. “I honestly feel like my dad’s a great person,” daughter La’Princia said. “He’s been my best friend, like, my whole life. If I ever have a problem with anything, I know I can always go to him. Likewise, if he ever needs to talk to somebody, he knows he can always call me and I’ll be there for him.” Landon says people confuse his father’s stage persona with the real man. “I feel like my father’s always had the bad boy image. So, you know, they just keep followin’ that. Anything that they can take a negative from the situation, they blow it out of proportion and blame him.”
The Exclusive TODAY Interview with Bobby Brown airs tomorrow and Thursday on NBC!
