SO sad! At the 2016 BET Awards, Bobby Brown completely lost it and broke down in tears backstage! And HollywoodLife.com has EXCLUSIVELY learned that he got so emotional because he misses his late wife and daughter, Whitney Houston and Bobbi Kristina Brown.
There’s no question Bobby Brown, 47, misses his former wife, Whitney Houston, and deceased daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown. After all, the singer could barely hold himself together backstage at the 2016 BET Awards on June 26 just remembering them — how heartbreaking! And HollywoodLife.com has the EXCLUSIVE on what exactly went down right here!
“Bobby’s team had to force him, literally push him on stage to present an award but all that was on his mind was Bobby Kristina and Whitney,” an insider revealed to HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “He was sobbing saying ‘I miss Krissy and Whitney, I can’t do this.'” Wow, SO sad!
But luckily one of Bobby’s other children was there, and, thanks to them, the artist was finally able to gather himself to present. “One of his sons said, ‘Dad, it’s all right’ and Bobby seemed to get it together at that point,” our source continued. “His eyes were blood-red from the tears as BET has been like family to him, Krissy and Whitney.”
Bobby recently joined the cast of New Edition, which is why he presented at the awards show — and he actually surprised the cast on stage! And frankly, we’re impressed that he was able to get up on stage at all! After all, Bobbi passed away on July 26, 2015 after she drowned in her bathtub with significant amounts of drugs and alcohol found in her system, which is the same way her mother, Whitney, eerily died just three years prior.
As Bobby hit the stage, joined by the rest of the New Edition cast, he proclaimed, “I had to come out with one group I couldn’t be kicked out of,” which was totally epic because Bobby helped form the band New Edition back in the 1980s!
