Bobby Brown has some harsh words for the man he holds responsible for his daughter’s death. In an interview with Rolling Stone, the Roxbury native says he wishes Nick Gordon, who was his daughter Bobbi Kristina’s boyfriend, was in prison. And that’s not all.
“If he was locked up somewhere where somebody can rape him,” the New Edition singer says. “That’s just how I feel. He raped me by taking my daughter away.”
Bobbi Kristina, Brown’s only child with his ex-wife, late singer Whitney Houston, was discovered unconscious facedown in a bathtub in January 2015. She died six months later at the age of 22. (Houston died under similar circumstances in 2012.)
Brown, who’s 49 and sober now, is producing BET’s upcoming “The Bobby Brown Story,” which was greenlit after the success of last year’s miniseries “The New Edition Story.” He’s also working on a new solo LP, his first in several years.
One other provocative thing Brown has to say: He doesn’t believe Houston died of a drug overdose.
“No, not at all,” he says. “She was really working hard on herself to try to be a sober person and, um, she was a great woman.”
Asked for his own theory about the cause of death, Brown said, “Just being broken-hearted.”
