Bobby Brown told "Today" co-host Matt Lauer that he’s not the reason that Whitney Houston died, saying that he didn’t get her hooked on drugs.
Asked by Lauer about the perception that he got her hooked on drugs, Brown said it is "not true."
"I didn’t get high [on narcotics] before I met Whitney," Brown said, according to the story. "I smoked weed, I drank the beer, but no, I wasn’t the one that got Whitney on drugs at all." Houston used drugs "way before" they met, he said.
"It’s just … 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," Brown said.
As previously reported, Houston died in February, with a lethal combination of drugs and alcohol in her system. She was found submerged in a bathtub at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.
