Bobby Brown is breaking his silence on the tragic death of his 28-year-old son Bobby Brown Jr.
In a statement obtained by TMZ on Thursday, Bobby Jr.’s father said, “Please keep my family in your prayers at this time. Losing my son at this point in our lives has devastated my family. There are no words to explain the pain.”
On Wednesday, authorities responded to a call for a medical emergency around 1:50 p.m. Bobby Jr. was then found dead inside his Los Angeles-area home. Officials do not believe foul play was involved.
The next day, Bobby Jr.’s family told TMZ that the budding musician experienced flu-like symptoms in the days leading up to his death.
However, a source connected to the family said Bobby Jr. did not have COVID-19.
Law enforcement insiders also say no drugs were found at the scene, but a toxicology test will be conducted.
For now, the Brown family says they will let authorities conduct an investigation into Bobby Jr.’s passing.
Brown Jr., whose mother was Kim Ward, had five siblings: half-brother Landon, 34; sister La'Princia, 31; half-brother Cassius, 11; half-sister Bodhi, 5; and half-sister Hendrix, 4.
On Wednesday, Landon shared a black-and-white photo on Instagram, writing, "I love you forever King."
On Thursday, Landon shared another video — featuring a cover of Justin Bieber’s “Love Yourself” — with the caption, “Everything hurts King….”
Our condolences go out to the Brown family for their loss.
