Bobby Brown's 28-Y-O son Bobby Jr. has been found dead at his LA home - five years after the death of his half-sister Bobbi Kristina
Bobby Brown Jr., the son of r&b legend Bobby Brown, has passed away at 28, MTO News has confirmed.
And now evidence suggests that Bobby Jr. may have died from complications of COVID 19. Shortly after his passing, one of Bobby Jr's friends leaked a recent conversation that they had.
In the conversation, that MTO News has obtained, Bobby Jr. complained of a "cough" that came on suddenly. He also complained of other symptoms that sounded like Covid.
According to CNN, officers with the Los Angeles Police Department responded to a medical emergency call on Wednesday around 1:50 p.m., spokesman Jeff Lee confirmed to CNN. Bobby Brown Jr. was pronounced dead at the scene.
Authorities suspect no foul play. His father has not released a statement about his son's passing.
Bobby's daughter, Bobbi Kristina, who he shared with Whitney Houston, passed away at a young age. She was 22 and died from a drug overdose.
"If I could have been there two days before, it wouldn't have went down like that," he told hosts of The Real back in 2016.
"We prayed and hoped for six months for something better to happen, but when God calls you, he calls you. And I'm pretty sure her mother had a part of that, like, ''Come on, get her up here'' -in the best way possible - She was not comfortable by herself, I guess, and she just called my daughter with her."
Bobby Brown and Kim Ward's 28-year-old youngest son Bobby Brown Jr. was found dead at his home in Los Angeles home on Wednesday, according to TMZ.
While authorities are still investigating the scene, sources told the outlet 'they do not believe there was foul play involved.'
The namesake of the rapper was among one of his seven children, which include Bobbi Kristina, who passed away at 22 in 2015, LaPrincia, 30, Landon, 34, Cassius, 11, Bodhi, 5, Hendrix, 4.
Bobby Brown Jr. is survived by both his parents and five siblings; he did not have children of his own.
Bobbi's death came after she spent more than three years square in the public eye, following the death of her mother, who was also tragically found in a bathtub in 2012.
Bobbi Kristina died in hospice care on July 26, 2015, nearly six months after she was found unconscious in a bathtub.
It was suspected that she may have been injured by Bobbi Kristina's ex-boyfriend Nick Gordon during a domestic argument, but he was never charged for anything related to the incident.
The Fulton County Medical Examiner's Office later determined that she died from being immersed in water and drug intoxication that led to pneumonia, however, medical experts were unable to rule whether her death was 'due to intentional or accidental causes.'
Bobbi was buried two days later next to her legendary mother at Fairview Cemetery in Westfield, New Jersey.
In late 2016, Gordon was found liable in a wrongful death lawsuit brought by the conservator of Bobbi Kristina's estate, Bedelia Hargrove, and was court-ordered to pay a total of $36 million in the case.
In January 2020, Nick Gordon died from a heroin overdose.
Sources said Gordon, 30, had a series of heart attacks after he was rushed into intensive care in Florida amid New Year’s celebrations.
