Bobby Talks About Whitney’s Death : Bobby Brown Net Worth 5 Mil
The R&B singer talks to Matt Lauer on NBC’s “Today” show this week in his first interview since the passing of his ex-wife in February.
Brown tells Lauer he had dinner with Houston and their daughter Bobbi Kristina, about a week before the singer’s death and remembers Whitney looking “really well.”
He says he was hurt when he heard that drug use contributed Whitney’s death, adding that he had no idea she was still struggling.
Brown says he, himself, has been “off narcotics” for the last seven years and defends himself against the speculation that he was the one who got Houston hooked on drugs in the first place.
Brown tells Lauer he didn’t get high before he met Whitney.
“I smoked weed, I drank beer, but no, I wasn’t the one that got Whitney on drugs at all…
I’m not the reason she’s gone.” Last week, the singer pled no contest to charges related to his DUI arrest in March. He was sentenced to three years of informal probation and will reportedly undergo a 90-day alcohol education course as part of his sentence. Bobby Brown’s interview with Matt Lauer airs this Wednesday on “Today.”
Although he looks sad and broke, Brown has an estimated net worth of $5 million dollars. Bobby’s fame rose in the 80′s with his hit group “New Edition” after getting the big head he then pursued a very successful solo career, releasing such hits as “My Prerogative” and “Every Little Step”. He also starred in his own reality series, “Being Bobby Brown”, prior to his divorce from Whitney Houston.
