Bobby Brown: I Wasn’t the One That Got Whitney on Drugs


In an interview airing this Wednesday and Thursday on The Today Show, Bobby Brown–who claims to be seven years sober–says that he saw Whitney two weeks before her death, and she had a glow about her and looked really good.

(You’d think with his experience, he’d know that it was the glow of druggin’.)

But that’s not the really surprising bit.

It’s this:

“I didn’t get high before I knew Whitney,” Bobby says.

“I smoked weed,” he admits, “I drank the beer, but no, I wasn’t the one that got Whitney on drugs at all.”

Say whaaa?????

No, wait. Bobby deserves his say. It’s his prerogative. Let’s not convict him in a court of pop-culture law unless totally proven guilty.

But it would be nice to get a second opinion on all this.
