Bobby Brown Jr. Passes Away at 28

Bobby Brown Jr., the son of Bobby Brown and Kim Ward, has passed away at the young age of 28.

On Wednesday, a source told TMZ that Bobby Jr. was found deceased in his Los Angeles-area home.

Los Angeles Police Department spokesman Jeff Lee confirmed to CNN that officers responded to a call for a medical emergency on Wednesday around 1:50 p.m.

Lee says no foul play is suspected.

In a statement to CNN, Nick Szatmari, Bobby Brown’s agent, said he had "no comment" regarding the death.

Sadly, the Brown family has endured a number of tragedies through the years.

On February 11, 2012, Brown’s wife Whitney Houston passed away from drowning due to coronary artery disease and cocaine intoxication.

Three years later, Brown and Houston’s daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown was found unresponsive in a bathtub at her Alpharetta, Georgia, home. The 22-year-old died in hospice care on July 26, 2015.

As seen on his Instagram, Brown Jr. was a budding musician who released his song, “Heart on Ice,” with Ben Jayne and OPB earlier this year.

Brown Jr. was also in the process of releasing his single “Say Something,” having posted a teaser in September.

He was also featured on his family’s short-lived Bravo reality TV show, “Being Bobby Brown,” in 2005.

Brown Jr. had five siblings: half-brother Landon, 34; sister La'Princia, 31; half-brother Cassius, 11; half-sister Bodhi, 5; and half-sister Hendrix, 4.

Our condolences go out to the Brown family for their loss.
