This is really sad to hear.

Bobby Brown isn't holding anything back!
Since there's SO many bombshells in his memoir Every Little Step, here are what we found to be the most shocking excerpts about his life with the music icon — from drug use in front of their daughter Bobbi Kristina to slapping Whitney after a fight with their drug dealer:
In the 20/20 interview, the 47-year-old opened up about his troubled relationship with the late legend and even discussed the star's drug habits.
And while the music icon's mom, Cissy Houston, was one of the many people tuning in to her son-in-law's tell-all, she was NOT pleased that he focused more on sharing scandalous stories about his deceased wife than plugging his memoir, Every Little Step, telling People in a statement:
"Last night I saw Bobby Brown's interview with Robin Roberts. It was disturbing. Although the interview was supposed to promote HIS autobiography, he never spoke about his parents and siblings and any issues they might have or have had that impacted and may continue to impact on Every Little Step he takes. Instead he chose to concentrate his comments primarily on Whitney. I can't help but wonder why."
In fact, the 82-year-old shared her suspicions about the R&B artist's intentions for the interview, noting that neither her daughter nor her granddaughter, Bobbi Kristina, are alive to defend themselves from his controversial comments:
As you may know, there's A LOT of controversy surrounding the death of Bobby Brown and Whitney Houston's daughter, Bobbi Kristina, and on Tuesday night her dad opened up a bit more about his thoughts on the matter during an interview with 20/20!
However, during the FULL interview, the 47-year-old ended up opening up about his abusive relationship with his ex-wife as he talked to Robin Roberts, saying that he did indeed hit Houston once while he was "trying to maintain sobriety." Woof.
Of course the songwriter says that any reports that claim he is a "woman beater" or "violent toward" Whitney are "just lies" as he dished:
In case you missed it, in a new 20/20 special with Robin Roberts, Bobby Brown opens up about the deaths of his daughter and former wife — as well as the alleged involvement of his daughter's boyfriend Nick Gordon.
This shouldn't come as a huge shocker, but Gordon's camp has since denied the R&B singer's implications that Nick had anything to do with either tragedy.
In a statement to People, Gordon's attorney Jose Baez asserted:
"We have repeatedly said that Nick Gordon is innocent of any wrongdoing. He has not been charged with any crime. Enough is enough; let's end this baseless speculation."
As you know, N.G. has not been charged in connection to either death, but a $50 million wrongful death civil suit still looms over his head.
The rest of the special will air tonight at 10 p.m. on ABC.

Bobby Brown is still shaken up over the deaths of daughter Bobbi Kristina and ex-wife Whitney Houston — and the music legend is speaking out for the first time on the eerie similarities between the two tragedies.
In a 20/20 special, the R&B star opens up about the deaths of his daughter and former wife — as well as the alleged involvement of his daughter's boyfriend Nick Gordon.
Brown notes the resemblance between the deaths in a clip from the upcoming special.
Houston was found unconscious in a bathtub at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in February 2012 — her death ruled an accidental drowning with cocaine found in her system.
Just three years later, Bobbi Kristina was found unresponsive in the bathtub of her Georgia home, and remained in a coma for six months. Toxicology reports showed that drugs were in her system, and she was taken off life support in July 2015.
As Brown points out, Gordon was allegedly present during both incidents, and tried administering CPR on both Houston and Bobbi Kristina. Brown said through tears:
Bobby Brown has dealt with a lot of tragedy over the past few years.
Just a month before the one-year anniversary of Bobbi Kristina's death, Bobby sat down with Robin Roberts to talk about the tragic loss of his daughter and the sad parallels with Whitney Houston's untimely death in 2012.
In the emotional sit down, which will air next Tuesday on ABC, the father couldn't help but break down while opening up about Kristina's drowning accident.
He cried out:
Fans are getting the chance to snag their own part of Whitney Houston's legacy.
As you surely know, the music legend passed away back in 2012 from an accidental drug overdose at the age of 48.
Now, dozens of the New Jersey native's personal items (think: wedding dress, countless awards, jewelry, debit cards, a passport, etc.) are being put up for auction through Heritage Auctions on June 24 and 25.
The sale is even expected to rake in a minimum of $500,000!
Most of the personal items will begin bidding for $500-$1,000, while her gorgeous Marc Bauer wedding gown she wore to say "I do" to Bobby Brown will go for at least $3,500.
Other items from her wardrobe include various red-carpet dresses and a custom leather bomber jacket inscribed with her nickname, "Nippy." Amazing!
Some of the awards that will be up for grabs include: The 1988 American Music Award for I Wanna Dance With Somebody, the multi-platinum plaque from her 1986 debut album, several Grammy nomination certificates, and a 1993 Billboard Music Award for I Will Always Love You.
Garry Shrum, head of Heritage's Entertainment and Music Memorabilia division, dished on working with the Houston family:
"We gave them some ideas, they gave us some ideas, and we came up with this 119-piece collection that's basically a retrospective of Whitney from the beginning. From when she first started singing after she left being a background singer for Chaka Khan and Lou Rawls. We have her passport from the beginning, all these various awards and outfits, all kinds of cool and groovy things."
In case you're looking for a present for us, we wouldn't mind a few of these things… that's for sure!
