Bobby Brown talked about a dream theme that kept coming up: his loving late children. The famous singer encouraged his new A&E documentary in an emotional conversation with PEOPLE. He also talked about the deaths of his two children, both of whom he lost to drug abuse.
Bobby tells PEOPLE, “I always see them on the beach or in the field.” His two kids both died when they were 20 years old. She died in 2015, when she was 22 years old. Bobby Jr. died in 2020, when he was 27 years old.
It looks like they’re laughing as they run away. They are always together. Before Bobby Jr. died, I didn’t dream about Bobbi Kris very often. Then all of a sudden, floods of dreams.”
His docuseries on A&E Life story: Bobby Brown opens on May 30 and looks at the superstar’s troubled relationship with the late Whitney Houston, his battles with drug addiction, and the hardest thing any parent has to go through: the deaths of his children.
In January 2015, Bobbi Kristina was discovered in her bathtub at home in Georgia, not moving. This was similar to how her mother was discovered in her bathtub at a hotel in Beverly Hills in 2011. A number of drugs were found in her body. She had been in a coma for months before she died in July.
Bobby Brown Jr., Bobby Brown’s son, was found dead in his Los Angeles apartment on November 18, 2020. He had been using drugs, wine, and fentanyl.
Brown and his wife, Alicia Etheredge, say, “No family, no father should have to go through this.” “I’ve cried, but not the way I want to,” he says. It’s not in me to scream and cry out loud, but it’s there.
The dreams of Brown’s two children together make him think that God has them. “That’s enough for a dad to know that God has them.”
The member of New Edition is survived by his children Landon and LaPrincia, as well as Cassius, Bodhi, and Hendrix, his three youngest children with his present wife.
