The cause of death is unclear as the investigation is reportedly ongoing, but police do not believe foul play was involved, per TMZ.
Brown Jr. was a 28-year-old singer-songwriter, and in a happy relationship, judging by various posts on his Twitter account. He was also gearing up to release a music video for his single “Say Something,” which he teased on his Instagram account in September.
His death comes five years after his half-sister, Bobbi Kristina Brown, passed away months after being found unconscious in a bathtub in her Georgia home.
At the time of Bobbi’s death Brown Jr. tweeted, “People really don’t give a f*ck about you unless [you’re] relevant , and they don’t love you till [you’re] famous or gone. I don’t want these follows,” he wrote. “This is real life for me, this is my life, my sister. Not a f*cking trending topic.”
Brown Jr. was the third of Bobby Brown Sr.’s seven children, and his second child with ex, Kim Ward, with whom he has a daughter, La’Princia. Besides Bobbi Kristina, and his eldest son, Landon, Brown Sr. has three young children with his current wife, Alicia Etheredge.
