Bobby Brown Breaks Down Crying Over Whitney Houston & Bobbi Kristina

by at .  Updated at .

Bobby Brown has had a, um, turbulent life.

Yeah, I think it's fair to say that.

He's been arrested a number of times, was accused of domestic abuse and had serious issues with addiction.

But the most tragic events of his life were undoubtedly the untimely loss of both his longtime love Whitney Houston and later the daughter they shared, Bobbi Kristina.

Brown is now opening up about his feelings on 20/20 in a candid interview with Robin Roberts.

In the clip below, an announcer dramatically teases, "For the first time, he opens up with what you haven't yet heard... emotional, deeply private."

Brown addresses the bizarre coincidental manner in which both women died: drowning in a bathtub with drugs in their systems.

"The same thing that happened to my daughter is what happened to Whitney," Brown tells Roberts.

He also discusses the first time he "saw her do drugs," although we're unsure if he's talking about Houston or his daughter (guess we'll have to watch to find out).

By the end of the clip, Brown has broken down into tears, an image you don't see from the former bad boy often.

"My baby's gone," he cries, getting emotional about Bobbi Kristina.

Brown penned a new memoir, Every Little Step, in which he discusses the death of his daughter.

In it, he speculates on a new theory about Bobbi Kristina's death.

He wonders whether a car accident she was involved in days before she died may have contributed to her falling unconscious in the tub.

“We asked the doctors whether she could have suffered some type of brain trauma or hemorrhage that didn’t present itself until four days later, resulting in the bathtub incident," he writes. 

“But the doctors couldn’t really give us definitive answers.”

The 20/20 special with Bobby Brown airs Tuesday, June 7 on ABC.
