Forget what you heard! Bobby Brown is taking a stand to dispel the allegations that he is the person responsible for getting his wife of 15 years addicted to drugs.
He sat down for an exclusive interview with Matt Lauer on the "Today" show that will air this Wednesday and Thursday.
Whitney's sister-in-law/manager, brother, and daughter were interviewed by Oprah Winfrey a month after the singer's tragic untimely death and now Bobby is gonna speak his peace. He was asked what his feelings were about the rumors swirling that he introduced the Queen of Pop to hardcore drugs he said, "It makes me feel terrible."
"But you know, I know differently. I think if anyone ever knew us, if anybody ever spent time around us instead of time lookin' through the bubble -- they would know how we felt about each other. They would know how happy we were together ... And the reality show ['Being Bobby Brown'] gave us a wake-up, because we saw each other in -- we looked at the bubble and saw ourselves. We was able to see what other people were saying about us, you know? We was able to see that our drug use had affected our relationship, had affected the love that we felt for each other."
Bobby isn't willing to take the blame for getting his ex-wife addicted to drugs.
"I didn't get high [on narcotics] before I met Whitney," Brown said. "I smoked weed, I drank the beer, but no, I wasn't the one that got Whitney on drugs at all." He says drugs were a part of the singer's life "way before" they got together.
"It's just unexplainable...how one could, you know, [say that I] got her addicted to drugs. I'm not the reason she's gone," he said.
His three children Landon, Bobby Jr. and LaPrincia and his fiance' were interviewed as well.
