Bobby Brown Jr., the son of singer Bobby Brown, was found dead at a home in Los Angeles late Wednesday. He was 28 years old.
Los Angeles police spokesman Jeff Lee said police responded to emergency medical care when they found the body of Brown Jr. around 1 p.m. at a home in Enchino, the Los Angeles Times reported.
“There was a man downstairs when the officers arrived,”
Brown Jr. was pronounced dead at the scene. Lee said police believed there was no foul play and further details of the death were not reported immediately.
Brown Jr. was the son of Bobby Brown and Kim Ward. His son’s death is the latest in a series of misfortunes for Bobby Brown.
In 2012, his ex-wife, legendary singer Whitney Houston, was found dead after drowning in the bathtub of a hotel room in Beverly Hills. Coroner officials ruled Houston’s death was accidental and said heart disease and cocaine were contributing factors.
Their daughter, Bobby Christina Brown, was found face down in a bathtub at her suburban home in Atlanta on January 31, 2015. She was in a coma for six months before dying in a hospice at the age of 22.
Investigators from the medical expert’s office were unable to determine exactly how Bobby Christina Brown died. The autopsy showed she had morphine, cocaine, alcohol and prescription drugs.
Bobby Christina’s former partner Nick Gordon, who was found guilty of her death, died earlier this year. He was 30 years old.
Gordon has never been charged in the case, but he has been found responsible in an illegal lawsuit. An Atlanta judge ordered him to pay $ 36 million for Brown’s mansion.
Brown began his singing career as a member of the band R&B New Edition, before becoming a solo artist with hits such as My Prerogative and Every Little Step.
