Bobby Brown Jr., the son of R&B singer Bobby Brown, tragically passed away on November 18, 2020. The autopsy report revealed that his cause of death was an accidental overdose of alcohol, cocaine, and the powerful opioid fentanyl. The 28-year-old was found unresponsive in his Los Angeles home by his girlfriend, who called paramedics. Despite their efforts, he was declared dead at the scene. No foul play was suspected in his death.
History of Drug and Alcohol Use
The autopsy report also mentioned that Bobby Brown Jr. had a history of drug and alcohol use. The night before his death, he had consumed tequila and cocaine, and had also “snorted” the painkiller Percocet. A witness told police that he had been experiencing flu-like symptoms at the time, but had not tested positive for Covid-19. It is important to note that the report classified his death as an accident.
Bobby Brown Jr.’s death came eight years after the accidental drowning of his stepmother, Whitney Houston, in a bathtub. It also occurred five years after the death of his half-sister, Bobbi Kristina Brown, who was found unresponsive in a bathtub and later passed away. These tragedies have deeply affected the Brown family, with Bobby Brown expressing his devastation and stating that there are no words to explain the pain.
In the wake of Bobby Brown Jr.’s death, his parents are seeking justice and holding those responsible accountable. They emphasized the presence of fentanyl in his system and its frequent unexpected presence in street drugs. They believe that those supplying this lethal drug should be held responsible for the death and destruction it causes. The Los Angeles County district attorney’s office is currently reviewing the case for possible criminal charges.
The Dangers of Drug Use
During an interview on “Red Table Talk,” Bobby Brown opened up about his son’s passing and the dangers of drug use. He revealed that his son was not a dependent user like he had been, but rather someone who experimented with different substances. He expressed concern about the current generation’s desire to get as high as possible and the unknown mixtures of drugs available on the streets. Fentanyl, in particular, has become a major concern due to its potency and involvement in many overdose deaths.
Remembering Bobby Brown Jr.
Bobby Brown Jr.’s passing has left a void in the hearts of his loved ones. His brother, Landon, paid tribute to him on Instagram, sharing a black-and-white photo and expressing his eternal love. Bobby Brown’s girlfriend, Anna Reed, also mourned the loss of her soulmate on Twitter. The family continues to grieve and hopes that justice will be served.
The Brown family has experienced multiple tragedies over the years, with the deaths of Whitney Houston, Bobbi Kristina Brown, and now Bobby Brown Jr. These losses serve as a reminder of the devastating impact of drug use and the importance of seeking help and support for addiction. It is crucial to raise awareness about the dangers of substance abuse and work towards preventing further tragedies in the future.
