Bobby Brown Jr., the son of singer Bobby Brown, was found dead in his Los Angeles home.
The Los Angeles Police Department responded to a call regarding a medical emergency at a private residence on Wednesday just before 2 p.m., the Los Angeles Daily News reports. Authorities discovered Bobby Brown Jr. upon their arrival and he was pronounced dead at the scene, according to police. He was 28 years old.
The home where Brown was found dead belongs to him, according to TMZ. While the official cause of death has yet to be released, police do not believe foul play was involved and are not conducting a criminal investigation, the Daily News reports.
Bobby Brown Jr. was one of seven children of the senior Bobby Brown, and one of two that Brown fathered with Kim Ward, with whom he was in a relationship before his marriage to the late Whitney Houston, according to MTV News. As a young teen, Bobby Brown Jr. appeared on his father’s reality show, “Being Bobby Brown.”
The younger Brown was pursuing a music career, according to his social media accounts. One of his last Instagram posts before his death was advertising the upcoming release of a new single, “Say Something.”
Bobby Brown Jr.’s death is yet another in a family that has had to deal with numerous tragedies over the last 10 years. Whitney Houston was found dead in a hotel room bath tub in 2012 at the age of 48. Bobbi Kristina, the daughter she shared with Bobby Brown, was similarly found unresponsive in a bathtub in February 2015; after spending weeks in a comatose state, she died in hospice care in July 2015, at the age of 22.
Bobby Brown has yet to comment publicly on his son’s death.
