9 Things You Didn’t Know About Bobby Brown
Bobby Brown has always been a bit of a character shall we say, but things have gotten even more bizarre lately. In his upcoming book, Bobby claims to have had intimate relations with a ghost! He’s also for the first time opened up about the explosive and drug-fueled days with his late ex-wife Whitney Houston. His book “Every Little Step” will be released next Monday, June 13 and is sure to be a page turner filled with more jaw-dropping revelations. In the meantime, here are 9 things you may not know about the R&B singer.
9. He Has Six Children with Four Different Women
Bobby already had three children (with two different women) before he met and married Whitney Houston. His oldest son, Landon, is a singer and performer, like his dad. LaPrincia and Bobby Jr. both attend college in Massachusetts. The late Bobbi Kristina was featured in the first duet he recorded with Houston called “Something in Common,” and Brown currently has two young children, Cassius and Bodhi, with his current wife and manager, Alicia Etheridge. And it was revealed in his 20/20 interview with Robin Roberts that he and his wife are expecting a third child. “I’m happy now, I have a beautiful wife, a beautiful family and I have a beautiful chance to do another thing that’s great,” he told Roberts.
8. His Personal Anthem is “My Prerogative”
“My Prerogative” was the biggest selling single of 1989 earning him a Grammy nomination for Best R&B Urban Contemporary Single. He said he wrote the song after he left New Edition as an explanation of sorts about making decisions and not caring about people’s judgement. That same message resonated with Britney Spears who did a remake of the song in 2004. Brown didn’t love Spears’ version, telling NBC News, “I loved the video. Why try to fix something that ain’t broke? That’s what I say. But I’m grateful someone covered a song of mine. The check wasn’t bad either.” Brown may have liked his own version better, but Spears surpassed his success having her song land in the top 10 charts in 14 countries.
