When news first spread last week that Bobby Brown would be giving an in-depth interview with “20/20” about the tragic deaths of his ex-wife, Whitney Houston, and their daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown, it was clear that this was one interview that fans wouldn’t want to miss. And as expected, the interview did not disappoint as Brown revealed some shocking revelations, including who he thinks was involved in Houston and Bobbi’s deaths.
Houston died Feb. 11, 2012, at the age of 48 after she was found submerged and unconscious in her hotel bathtub. Although it was initially unclear what exactly caused Houston’s death, autopsy and toxicology reports revealed that Houston’s death was regarded as an “accident” and that she died from drowning and the “effects of atherosclerotic heart disease and cocaine use.”
On Jan. 31, 2015, Bobbi Kristina was found submerged and unconscious, in the bathtub of her Georgia home. Bobbi Kristina was placed in a medically induced coma and was on life support for six months before dying on July 25, 2015, at the age of 22. According to the autopsy report, Bobbi Kristina died from a multitude of causes, including lobar pneumonia due to “Hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy, delayed effects” and “Immersion of face in water complicating mixed drug intoxication.” The coroner also noted that Bobbi Kristina didn’t die of natural causes, but it was unclear if she died accidentally or via intentional forces.
After Bobbi’s death, many accused her former boyfriend, Nick Gordon, of killing her and trying to cover it up. Bobbi’s estate even filed a multimillion-dollar lawsuit against Gordon, claiming he was abusive, stole money from Bobbi, and that he caused the brain damage that resulted in her death.
In Brown’s interview, he opened up about Houston and Bobbi’s eerily similar deaths and explained that he thinks Gordon was involved in both Houston and Bobbi’s tragic deaths.
“It’s not a mystery to me. The same thing that happened to my daughter is what happened to Whitney,” said Bobby.
“He knows what happened,” Brown said about Gordon. “I don’t know what happened that night. But he does.”
Despite his accusations against Gordon, Brown also admitted in the interview that he didn’t always do right by Bobbi either. Brown revealed that he and Houston would often seclude themselves in one wing of their family home to do drugs while nannies would take care of Bobbi in another wing of their home.
“I always made it a point to not let her see me or my wife in that type of situation,” Brown shared. “It’s hard when you’re doing it every day, it’s really hard.”
Brown says that he regrets exposing Bobbi to such a dysfunctional home environment.
“We could have been better. We should have been better,” Brown said.
