Bobby Brown has revealed he was on the brink of death after enduring heartbreak following the deaths of his two children and former wife Whitney Houston.

In the two-night documentary event titled Biography: Bobby Brown, which premiered May 30 on A&E, the singer and songwriter said he suffered two heart attacks caused by excessive drinking to numb the pain.

“Losing my daughter, that hurt me to my core. There’s nothing like losing a child,” the 53-year-old star said.

“Children aren’t supposed to go before their parents and I lost my baby girl,” he continued in a clip from the film obtained by The Sun.

“I started drinking a lot once Bobbi Kristina passed. My drinking had gotten to a point where my bodily functions were starting to quit,” Brown said. “I had two heart attacks. I had two stents in my heart.”

The first tragedy happened when his superstar ex-wife Whitney Houston passed away at age 48 in 2012, after drowning in a bathtub at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills.

In January 2015, their daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown was found face down in a bathtub at her home in Alpharetta, Georgia. Months later, she was taken off life support.

Then his son Bobby Brown Jr. died in November of 2020 in Los Angeles from a drug overdose.

The documentary event chronicled the fallout from Bobby Brown’s personal struggles with sobriety, the deaths of his family members, and his rise to music superstardom.
