But it did not stop him from doing things his way. In the Bobby Brown story we all got to see into his life and career like never before.
His life with iconic singer Whitney Houston
Brown and Houston marriage started off like a fairy tale. But because of their drug use their relationship became very volatile. Brown was notorious for partying hard and drinking heavily. Although, he did not talk about his being arrested for fighting with Whitney there are court documents that alleged he was abusive, according to CBS News.
Singer Bobby Brown was charged with battery Wednesday, three days after he allegedly hit his wife, singer and actress Whitney Houston.
Fulton County police spokesman Kurtis Young said Brown, 34, turned himself in. Brown and Houston left Fulton County Magistrate Court together after they and their attorneys met with police.
Brown is scheduled to appear at a preliminary hearing Jan. 7.
Brown’s lawyer, Maurice Bennett, told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution that his client and Houston were trying to work out the problem “as husband and wife.”
Brown was not the only one with problems in the relationship. Houston was just as heavy into drug use as was he. It appeared that some of their issues were because of her as well. After about 14 years they ended their marriage in divorce. While some people painted Brown as a bad influence on Houston after watching the movie it was clear that she had serious issues. It is important to note, that Whitney and Bobby really had love for each other. But some times marriages fail.
“People think Bobby Brown introduced her to drugs – that’s not true. If anything, she introduced Bobby to real drugs,” says a music source. “Bobby pretty much just smoked weed. They had a lot more in common than people realize … the rough-and-tumble guy from the projects in Boston with this bad boy image and America’s princess. She loved him. She truly did. In some ways, Bobby provided stability in her life, and she had someone who truly cared about her. Unfortunately, it became too much for both of them to handle. They blew through their money, they started doing more and more drugs together and they were both dealing with sinking careers, according to People Magazine.”
