Bobby Brown Interview
Issue: Oct. 2006
Story Headline: Every Little Step
Background: Bobby and Whitney, in efforts to put out their side of the story, launched their own reality show Being Bobby Brown in 2005. The plan backfired when viewers were able to really see just how dysfunctional the Browns really were behind the scenes. VIBE sat down with Bobby to get his truth about the most talked about R&B family.
Article Excerpt: In December 2003 Whitney Houston called 911 to say she'd had an argument with her husband, who had since left. She reportedly had a bruise on her cheek and a cut on her upper lip. When a policewoman called Bobby's cell phone ordering him to return home, Brown said, "Aw, man, stop playin'," and hung up. "Me and my wife, we play a lot," Brown explained afterward. "Sometimes we get out of hand with the joking, but I'd never put my hands on Whitney to harm her. Shit, I could show you videotapes where she's kicking my ass, you know? I got footage! But nobody says nothing about men being beat up by the wives."
