“I bought this mansion in Georgia … I wasn’t high. I wasn’t tripping,” he said, before describing the liaison with a paramour from the afterlife.
Who was the amorous spirit? Maybe he’ll circle back to this tale, although the interview quickly delved into details about his late ex-wife and daughter.
The interview touched on Brown’s many brushes with the law as his wife rocketed to international stardom, then the couple’s joint drug use. Although he said both he and Whitney developed a daily drug habit, he said he was assiduous in trying to block Bobbi Kristina from it. She was cared for by nannies while Bobby and Whitney would shut themselves off in a wing of their house to indulge their habits.
“I always made it a point to not let (Bobbi Kristina) see me or my wife in that type of situation,” he said.
Brown said the last few years of their marriage were “a big struggle” in terms of their drug use.
He said it took going to jail to clean up for good.
Brown said he hadn’t touched narcotics in 10 to 12 years, but that he still drinks some.
He acknowledged striking his wife on one occasion but that he was not abusive. Ultimately, it was her refusal to quit drugs that dissolved their 14-year marriage, he said.
