Highlighted quotes from the episode below.


Jada warns that this episode isn’t for everyone 

  • “I just wanted to take the time to talk to our Red Table Talk family. We are bringing out Bobby Brown. He’s been a part of many of our lives for a very, very long time, and we’ve actually witnessed a lot of the traumas that he’s had to confront. I want to approach his journey with compassion and with love. This table’s about healing, so anyone who feels like you’re in a position that you can judge, this might not be the conversation for you today.” – Jada


Bobby Brown says that unlike him, Bobby Jr. was just experimenting 

  • “Did you know that he was struggling in regards to drugs?” – Jada

“I did not know that, and let me make it clear, he wasn’t a user. He would experiment with different things. It wasn’t like he was dependent on drugs like when I was in my situation. I depended. I needed it. He was a young man that tried the wrong stuff, and it took him out of here.” – Bobby


Willow says her generation is spiraling; Bobby Brown thinks selling synthetic drugs is like comitting murder 

  • “And there have been so many deaths specifically with fentanyl. It’s just skyrocketed. My generation is kind of spiraling.”  – Willow

“There’s murderers out there right now that are creating these synthetic drugs that are killing these kids. It’s like they’re committing murder. It’s homicide.” – Bobby


Bobby feels guilty about his son’s involvement with drugs 

  • “You guys don’t have any idea who the people were yet?”- Jada

“The investigation is still going on. I’m keeping my fingers and toes crossed [that] they find the people and get these drugs off the street, but my babies are gone. I’ve been through my time and I know that my time played a part in my son feeling he could test something. You know? And I feel guilty about that.” – Bobby Brown


Bobbi Kristina was in an abusive relationship with Nick Gordon 

  • “She [Bobbi Kristina] unfortunately was stuck in an abusive relationship with a man that– with a boy I should say, that basically controlled her to the point where her life was taken.” – Bobby


Bobby Brown accuses Nick Gordon of murdering Whitney Houston and Bobbi Kristina 

  • “So you believe that there was foul play in Bobbi Kristina’s death?” – Jada

“Definitely.” – Bobby

“Like, that maybe he drugged her?”- Willow

“Definitely. He was the only one there with both situations, with my ex-wife [Whitney Houston] and with my daughter, and they both died the same way.” – Bobby

“So you think that he killed Whitney as well?” – Willow

“I believe so.” – Bobby Brown

“Do you think that he provided Bobbi Kristina and Whitney with the drugs? How do you think that he’s culpable?” – Gammy 

“Yeah. I think this is my opinion of who I think this young man was. Being around my daughter and being around my ex-wife, I think [Nick] was more so a provider of, you know, party favors.” – Bobby


Bobby Brown didn’t get to confront Nick Gordon because he passed away while Bobby was still in rehab  

  • “Did you ever have a chance to confront that young man or no?” – Jada

“No. No, I didn’t. In fact…I was in rehab at the time when he passed. I had planned on, once I left rehab, to approach the young man just to find out how my daughter was in her last days. But no, I never got a chance to find out from him or talk to him.”  – Bobby


Bobby didn’t find out about Bobbi Kristina’s abusive relationship until after her death 

  • “Were there no warning signs that there was some domestic violence that was happening with Bobbi Kristina?” – Jada

“Not for me. I wasn’t told about it. Other people might’ve saw it that were around her, but I didn’t see it and she didn’t tell me anything.” – Bobby

“How did you find out?” – Willow

“I found out after her passing. That was the hard part. I don’t know why I didn’t see it. But we hadn’t been spending as much time together after her mother’s death as we should’ve spent.”    – Bobby


Bobby Brown and Whitney Houston’s relationship was abusive and volatile 

  • “You and Whitney had an abusive, volatile relationship.” – Jada

“The violence that we incurred was using [drugs], you know? That’s violence in itself.” – Bobby

“In itself. Absolutely.” – Jada

“You know, that’s abuse. We abused drugs and alcohol. We fought hard verbally and we loved even harder.” – Bobby


Bobby Brown is 19 years sober from drugs and a year sober from alcohol 

  • “How long have you been clean?” – Willow

“I’ve been clean 19 years from narcotics. I’m going on a year from alcohol.” – Bobby


Bobby hit rock bottom after going to jail for a DUI 

  • “I wanna know exactly what was your rock bottom? What finally got you off of drugs?” – Jada

“Prison. Going to jail is what got me totally clean off of narcotics. That was something that– I’ve never thought I would spend a day in jail, and I went to jail for a DUI.” – Bobby

“How much time did you do?” – Jada

“60 days. – Bobby

“That’s enough time.” – Jada

“60 days sounds like an eternity.” – Willow

“It is. I bet.” – Jada

“It felt like an eternity.” – Bobby


Bobby decided to get sober when he realized he started losing bodily function and needed alcohol to wake up 

  • “What made you decide to get totally clean from all mind- and mood-altering chemicals? ‘Cause you said you stopped drinking alcohol as well.” –Gammy 

“Because I felt that with alcohol, I started losing bodily function. My body started shutting down because I was drinking that much. My body just was giving out on me. Even with alcohol, I got to a point where I needed it. I wasn’t getting drunk anymore. I wasn’t getting a little tipsy anymore. I needed it to wake up. I needed it to stop the shakes and to function on a day-to-day basis.” – Bobby


Bobby and Alicia explain to their 11-year old son Cassius that his brother passed away from drugs 

“We just had a great conversation with Cassius recently because, obviously, with the news coming out of what was found in [Bobby Jr’s] system. It was high-anxiety for me. Bobby too. So we talked to our therapist. How do we explain this? I want him to hear it from us. And with the tools that they gave us, we sat down and we spoke honest, truthfully, [about] what was found, how he did it. We first asked what he thought. You know, terrifying for a kid to think that maybe my brother went to sleep and he didn’t wake up. You know, you don’t want them to sit with that, right?…” –Alicia

“ Then he’d be scared to go to sleep.” – Bobby 

“Talking about what was found in his system and how it got in his system. And his questions were just right on. Like, ‘Did someone put that in him? Did he put it in himself? Did he know that was what was gonna happen?’ And as soon as we just had the conversation–” – Alicia

“Opened up to him.” – Bobby 

“He was, like, solid and relieved. And you could tell he had what he needed if he was addressed or if he had to read something let’s just say, right? He’s not confused.” – Alicia


Bobby shows vulnerability and cries in front of his kids, fighting stereotypes associated with Black males

  • “You know, we [don’t] try to hide crying and all that.” – Alicia

“No, no. Cry.” – Bobby 

“No, we–’Is Daddy crying again? Yeah, Daddy’s crying right now, but he’s gonna feel better.’”- Alicia

“That’s such a beautiful thing.” – Willow

“‘Let’s all go give Daddy a hug.’” Alicia

“That is beautiful.” – Jada

“’Cause kids need to see real life.” – Willow

“And as a young Black male, allowing him to cry and allowing him to see you– To see his Black father cry as well, and feel.” – Gammy 

“He sees it.” – Bobby
