Bobby Brown Jr., the youngest son of Bobby Brown, the popular singer, was found dead in Los Angeles on Wednesday at his home. He was 28 years old.
There was no apparent cause seen at the spot of his death, though it looked suspicious, say the sources.
Singer-songwriter Landon Brown confirmed his brother’s death on his Instagram account. He uploaded a photo with the caption, “I love you forever King.”
While investigation is still going on, the police told the media that they don't really believe the involvement of any foul play.
Jeff Lee, LAPD Public Information Officer said that Police immediately responded to a medical emergency at 1:50 p.m. to find the deceased male, who was later identified as Brown Jr.
The cause of the death of Bobby Brown's son is yet to be determined, as law enforcement agencies are still investigating the scene and waiting for a pending coroner report.
Bobby Brown’s family tragedy
It’s not the first time the family has lost a young family member; in 2015, just five years ago, the singer lost his daughter Bobby Kristina who was only 22 years old.
Bobby Jr.’s half-sister Kristina was found dead in a bathtub at her Georgia house. She was kept on life support for a long time before death in July 2015.
At first, it was assumed that she was harmed by her former lover Nick Gordon after a domestic argument. However, he wasn’t charged for anything associated with Kristina’s death.
Whitney took in Nick Gordon when he was 12 years old and helped in raising him along with her other children.
The Fulton County Medical Examiner’s Officer later found out that Kristina died of drowning and due to drug intoxication, leading to pneumonia. It was discovered that she had toxic levels of alcohol and cocaine in her system, however, medical professionals did not conclude that her death was occured due to accidental and intentional causes.’
In the same tragic manner, Bobbi Kristina died like Whitney Houston, her mother, who had died three years earlier. The best-selling record artist, Whitney, died because of an accidental overdose during taking a bath at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.
Bobbi was laid to rest at Fairview Cemetery, next to her legendary mother, in Westfield, New Jersey.
Just a year after Kristina’s death, Gordon was found involved in an unjustified death lawsuit filed by the conservator of the estate of the Bobbi Kristina, Bedelia Hargrove. There was a court order to pay a fine of total $36 million in the case.
Earlier this year in January, Nick died from drug overdose at the age of 30.
According to sources, he suffered from multiple heart attacks after he was taken to Florida's intensive care in the midst of New Year’s celebrations.
His lawyer, Joe Habachy said that he strived to keep his head high and remain sober. He wished for a genuinely delighted life with the family. Indeed, it is quite a tragic end to the troubled life of Nick.
