The infamous Bobby Brown is speaking out in a new interview with multiple explosive statements.
He says that Whitney Houston's cause of death was something very different than what is widely believed and reported.
Bobby Brown also has strong words regarding Nick Gordon, who was found legally responsible for Bobbi Kristina's death.
In an interview with Rolling Stone, Bobby Brown addresses the late, great Whitney Houston's tragic death. And he has some controversial thoughts that are contradicted by medical reports.
"I don’t think she died from drugs."
He says that he believed that she was past that.
"She was really working hard on herself to try to be a sober person and, um [pauses] she was a great woman."
Alicia Etheredge-Brown, his wife and manager, interjects at this point, clarifying that there were absolutely drugs in Whitney Houston's system, per the medical examiner's report.
She and the interviewer sort of guide him into saying that he believes that there were other factors in Whitney's death
"Just being heart-broken."
Bobby Brown talks about his charity work.
"Domestic violence is just the worst s--t in the world."
Absolutely true, though some may be surprised to hear Bobby Brown, in particular, say it.
"We started the Serenity House because women will go through it and think they are wrong like it's their fault."
Tragically, many domestic abusers actively seek out women whom they believe are vulnerable to being manipulated into believing that they're to blame for anything and everything.
"So we're doing this to build houses like safe havens for women that are being abused to get away from the relationship and get some therapy spiritually and mentally."
"We want to let women know that they don't have to be scared and stay in that relationship. This isn't a f--king game. You either are going to be healthy or you're going to end up dying."
That's a very good message. This next line is particularly interesting.
"And I don't want to see another father or mother have to go through what I went through."
It's at this point, if you hadn't already caught on, that you realize that Bobby Brown isn't talking about himself -- despite his 2003 domestic battery arrest during his marriage to Whitney Houston.
No, Bobby Brown is talking about what his daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown, must have suffered before her death.
Nick Gordon was found legally responsible for Bobbi Kristina's death and ordered to pay tens of millions to her estate after being successfully sued.
Bobby Brown is asked about whether or not he believes that Nick Gordon has faced justice yet.
"No, not yet. Because he's still walking around free."
The criminal investigation into her death is ongoing.
Bobby Brown reveals what he would consider justice
"Justice? If he was locked up somewhere where somebody can rape him."
That is ... an upsetting thing to say. There are plenty who believe that Nick Gordon deserves the death penalty, for the alleged domestic violence alone, but wishing sexual assault on someone is another matter.
"That’s just how I feel. He raped me by taking my daughter away."
Etymology aside, that is absolutely not what rape means in modern English.
You can wish for someone to get a needle in their arm all day and night, folks, but let's not wish actual rape on anyone. Even if the grim realities of our broken prison system mean that many incarcerated individuals are vulnerable to sexual assault.
When talking about Nick Gordon, whom Bobby Brown -- among numerous others -- believes to be responsible for Bobbi Kristina's death, it's important to note his more recent criminal history.
In frightening detail, Nick Gordon's ex says that she nearly died and only escaped because, her face covered in her own blood, she managed to grab a candlestick and momentarily stun Nick with it.
She says that she then fled to the room of Nick Gordon's mother for protection, and then went to the police. This was after months of alleged domestic violence that gradually escalated to a near-death experience.
Many, including investigators who are looking into Bobbi Kristina's death, believe that this arrest may be extremely relevant to Bobbi Kristina's case.
