Bobby Brown and his late wife, Whitney Houston, had one of the most volatile relationships in entertainment, with much of the dysfunction fueled by their battles with drug addiction. And while most were aware of Brown and Houston’s drug use, Brown’s other kids say they had no clue about the drugs when they were younger.
“Are you talking about drugs?” LaPrincia, Brown’s daughter from a previous relationship, said when asked by NBC if she ever saw any signs of drug use with Brown and Houston. “I never in my life ever seen that.”
LaPrincia’s brother, Landon, shared similar thoughts on the matter, claiming that he knew of the tabloid rumors, but never saw any drugs in his home life.
According to LaPrincia Brown didn’t come clean to her about his drug use until later in life when the it seemed like the rumors would never end.
“He didn’t tell me exactly what drug he might have been doing,” she said, “but he did let me know that it was something that he was in the wrong for, that he had done, and he was going to try and get better.”
Brown has claimed that he finally rid himself of his drug addiction years ago and his kids believe that their father will continue to live drug free.
“I don’t have any fears,” said Bobby Brown Jr. “My father is a very strong man. … He’s progressed so much.”
Hopefully, Brown will remain clean and steer clear of the same tragic path that led to the demise of his ex-wife. But he’s not the only celebrity parent to suffer drug addictions. Check out some other celebrity dads who’ve suffered drug problems below. –nicholas robinson
