Bobby Jr. died on Nov. 18 as a result of drug and alcohol toxicity, according to the Los Angeles County Medical Examiner's Office. According to their report, his death was ascribed to the "combined effects of alcohol, cocaine and fentanyl." The report also revealed that witnesses told police that, on the night of his death, Bobby Jr. "snorted" a Percocet and cocaine after consuming shots of tequila with friends. His death was ruled "accidental" and no foul play was determined. He was 28 years old.
Bobby talks about drug use among young people today with Red Table Talk hosts Jada Pinkett Smith, Adrienne Banfield-Norris and Willow Smith.
"Kids today, they're trying different things," he says. "They're trying to get as high as they can possibly get. That's a real problem, because they don't know what these drugs are being mixed with these days."
When 20-year-old Willow notes that her generation is "kind of spiraling" and brings up the number of deaths tied to fentanyl, Brown says that "there are murderers out there" creating synthetic drugs.
"It's like they're committing murder," he says. "That's homicide."
