Bobby Brown reveals devastating bombshells regarding his daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown's death and his late ex-wife Whitney Houston's drug use on Tuesday's 20/20.
The R&B singer experienced his two greatest losses almost exactly three years apart to the day, with Houston drowning in a bathtub at the Beverly Hilton in February 2012 and Bobbi Kristina being found unresponsive in a bathtub in Georgia in 2015.
Bobby teared up while talking to Robin Roberts about his daughter's death, which he thinks could have been avoided.
"Two days before what happened to my daughter, she was supposed to come out here to Los Angeles with me," he said through tears. "If I could get those two days back, my daughter would be here. All I want is those two days back."
While Bobby details his grief in his memoir, Every Little Step: My Story, but Roberts saw the pain that the former New Edition singer is still going through up close.
"He's haunted by those two days," Roberts told ET on Tuesday. "When you're talking to someone like that, of course you let them grieve, but you have to ask the questions so many of us have like why would put your child in that position with the reality show? She was just 11 years old."
"He takes ownership in saying there was more that he could've and should've done," she added.
While Bobby takes some of the responsibility for the tragic events that have taken place in his family, his critics might have put more blame on him than he deserves. Throughout his marriage to Houston, fans speculated that Bobby was the one who introduced her to drugs, though the singer denies those rumors to this day.
According to Bobby, he saw Houston do drugs for the first time on their wedding day in 1992 shortly before they exchanged vows. In Every Little Step, Bobby claims he found Houston "hunched over a bureau, snorting a line of coke."
"She did drugs but drugs didn't do her," he said. "She knew how to handle herself. It only made me love and want to protect her more."
