“Drugs got the better of him and Whitney Houston”

“Drugs got the better of him and Whitney Houston”

For Bobby Brown, it was “love at first sight” when he met Whitney Houston backstage at the 1989 Soul Train Music Awards.

But apparently, the “My Prerogative” singer and the late pop superstar also had the greatest desire of all.

“Whitney and I’s sex life was pretty intense,” the R&B crooner says in the new documentary “Biography: Bobby Brown,” which airs on A&E Monday and Tuesday nights. “It didn’t matter where we were. It was a certain look, and she looked at me a certain way. It was on and poppin’.

Brown, 53, says he was addicted to the smell of Houston as well as his eyes. “There was something about his eyes that melted me inside,” he says. “Just the way she looked at me from day one to the last day we were together was always special.”

Describing Houston as “the love of my life,” Brown says, “She was just the nicest, sweetest person I know.”

But on their wedding day, July 18, 1992, Brown was shocked to discover a different side to Houston.

“I walked in and, uh, I saw her do a line of coke. It was a shock to me to see her sniffle for the first time,” he reveals.

“I think that’s when I realized we had more in common than I thought. I was new to this and I guess she had been doing it for a while.

In addition to substance abuse on both sides, there were issues with longtime Houston assistant – and former lover – Robyn Crawford.

“I didn’t realize Whitney’s relationship was more than just friends until later in our marriage,” Brown explains. “I think our marriage was growing and there was no room for a third person in our marriage.”

Now, however, Brown regrets that Crawford ended up leaving the Houston team. “Robyn was good friends with Whitney,” he says, “and I can say I wish Robyn was still in her life, you know, in the end.”

And Brown will always regret that drugs came between him and Houston, which led to their divorce in 2007.

“We always felt our love was strong enough to overcome any obstacle that came our way,” he says of his relationship with Houston, who died on February 11, 2012. “We would still be together if it wasn’t for the case. for, you know, drugs. The drugs just got the better of us.
