Bobby Brown Said: “Don’t Blame me for Whitney’s death!”


Bobby Brown, 43, sat down with Matt Lauer of the “Today show” in his first exclusive interview since his ex-wife, Whitney Houston died. Brown told host Matt Lauer that he had been off drugs for seven years and was hurt to hear that Houston had been using cocaine. And of course we all know, this was Bobby’s chance to clear the air, since the world blames him for getting Whitney hooked on drugs.

“I’m not the one that got Whitney hooked on drugs, at all,” Brown said in an interview to be aired this week on the Today show and “I’m not the reason she’s gone,” he added.

“I was hurt … because, you know, me being off of narcotics for the last seven years – I felt that she was, you know, I didn’t know she was struggling with it still. But at the same time, you know – listen, it’s a hard fight,” he said.

Brown said drugs were part of Houston’s life before he met her in 1991. “I smoked weed, I drank the beer, but no, I wasn’t the one that got Whitney on drugs at all,” he said.

“So this was a part of her life before you and she got together?” Lauer asked.

Way, way before. Yeah … It’s just, it’s just unexplainable – how one could, you know, (say that I) got her addicted to drugs. I’m not the reason she’s gone,” Brown replied.

Bobby spoke about the last time he saw Whitney, which was a week before she died, they were at a restaurant having dinner with their daughter, Bobby Kristina.

Brown said Houston had a “glow about her” “She just looked like she was in a good place,” he said.

The interview will air Wednesday and Thursday on the “Today show” on NBC.

  1. They were not good together cause they fueled each others addictions; but SHE is responsible for what led up to her death.

  2. Who is to blame? How about Whitney! She was an adult and knew the drugs, booze, and lifestyle was killing her. Blame who you want, but ultimately, she killed herself. Case closed.

  9. Gotta give it to Bobby Brown though. Whitney left him, then got her azz on Oprah claiming sobriety and trashed him. When all along she lied about her lifestyle and was showed up in the end. yet Bobby Brown never came out and spoke against her, he just moved on with his life.

  10. I too fed into the media blitz blaming Bobby for Whitney’s drug use…but the TRUTH did come out she was on drugs b4 she met Bobby. I am a Whitney fan, but if you take a 22 y.o. kid and expose him to all the drugs money can buy and all the liquor he wants, Whitney probably did more harm to Bobby!!! People seem to forget Bobby had a successful career when he met Whitney including an acting career. Some of her family might feel guilty for not getting her help long b4 she met Bobby and are making him the scapegoat.

    • @POINTMAN: Whitney’s brothers were dope addicts before her and introduced her to them (drugs).

      I’m surprised everyone is dismissing the interview that Whitney’s ex-sister-in-law did with Drew Petersen. She stated that her husband (Whitney’s brother) was an addict, and so was the other brother. She beat around the bush, but left the viewer with the feeling that one or the other—or both—introduced her to narcotics. So the Houston family has a problem with drug addiction.

He can’t do or say anything that will change the minds of those people who want to hold him responsible for Whitney’s death. Ultimately, we all do what we do. Sometimes we can come back from bad choices, and sometimes we can’t. Whitney is gone so address anything at all. NBC just needed a story.
