Bobby Brown is sitting down with Robin Roberts for a 20/20 special this evening; opening up about the death’s of Whitney Houston and his daughter Bobbi Kristina…
In a clip from the special shown on Monday’s “Good Morning America,” Brown notes the eerie similarities between his ex-wife and daughter’s deaths, which occurred three years apart. Houston was found unconscious in a bathtub at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in February 2012, and pronounced dead shortly later. Her death was ruled an accidental drowning, and cocaine was found in her system.
Meanwhile, Bobbi Kristina was discovered unresponsive in the bathtub of her Georgia home in January 2015. She remained in a coma for six months, but was taken off life support in July 2015, and toxicology reports showed that drugs had been in her system. Gordon was reportedly present during both incidents, and tried administering CPR on both Houston and Bobbi Kristina.
“The same thing that happened to my daughter is what happened to Whitney,” Brown says in his “20/20” interview. “There was only one person who was around on both occasions… I won’t say his name.” Brown further says about Gordon, “He knows what happened. I don’t know what happened that night, but he does.”
“The hardest thing I had to do in my life was tell my daughter to let go,” Brown adds about his decision to take Kristina off life support. The musician’s “20/20” interview airs Tuesday at 10 p.m. on ABC. Watch a preview below.
