Being Bobby Brown just a got a bit more interesting.
In his controversial upcoming autobiography, “Being Bobby Brown: The Truth, The Whole Truth and Nothing But…” the troubled pop star admits to everything from getting together with Janet Jackson to nearly dying from a drug overdose. But the one thing Bobby, 39, won’t ’fess up to is insulting his ex-wife, famed singer Whitney Houston, 44. “I don’t have anything bad to say about her,” says Bobby. “She should have no worries. There’s no mess in this book.”
Exactly how dirty the former couple’s laundry is, seems relative. “The book is really good. I’m not a complex person,” he says. “I’m just trying to maintain a certain amount of integrity — and a certain amount of bad boy-ness.” Bobby’s tell-all addresses issues such as Whitney’s alleged drug use, rumors about her sexuality and their much-publicized divorce. The R&B crooner is candid about his motives. “I think the story needs to be told from my point of view,” he says. “I still have kids that are in school right now so I have to do what I have to do. Daddy doesn’t stop working.” Bobby’s new book is scheduled to hit stores on May 13. He’s also working on a new album.
“I’m in a perfect place right now,” he says. “I’m really happy — that’s why I’m having a beer.”
