Singer Bobby Brown has suffered another tragic loss. The singer’s son Bobby Brown Jr. was found dead in his Los Angeles home on Wednesday, Nov. 18, according to multiple reports. He was 28 years old.
Authorities from the Los Angeles Police Department responded to a call for a medical emergency on Wednesday afternoon around 1:50 p.m., spokesman Jeff Lee revealed. Brown Jr. was pronounced dead at the scene. Lee also said no foul play was suspected, although no further details about the cause of death were given.
The “Every Little Step” singer had “no comment” regarding the death, according to his agent Nick Szatmari. Brown Jr.’s older brother, Landon, paid tribute to the aspiring musician on his Instagram page Wednesday evening. He shared a black-and-white photo of his younger brother. “I love you forever King,” Landon captioned the post. Fans and followers expressed their sadness and condolences in the comments section.
Brown Jr. is just one of seven of the former New Edition member’s children and his second child with his ex-girlfriend Kim Ward; the former couple share two children.
Viewers may recognize Bobby Brown Jr. from starring in the short-lived Bravo reality show, “Being Bobby Brown.” The show also starred his half-sister, the late Bobbi Kristina Brown.
The death of Brown Jr. is just one of many the “My Prerogative” singer has endured in the last several years. Brown’s daughter, Bobbi, tragically passed away in July 2015, after she was found unresponsive and not breathing in a bathtub at her Roswell, Georgia, home on Jan. 31. An autopsy showed that drug intoxication and immersion led to pneumonia and brain damage.
She was treated in a hospital and then in a hospice facility for nearly six months after her famous father refused to let doctors pull the plug on the 22 year old, even after doctors had declared her brain dead.
The young actress’s death was eerily similar to that of her mother’s, Whitney Houston, who died almost three years before. Like Bobbi, Houston died on Feb. 11, 2012, after accidentally drowning in a bathtub. A coroner ruled that heart disease and cocaine played a role in the legendary singer’s death.
