Bobby Brown exercised his prerogative to tell us all of his business in his upcoming memoir, Every Little Step. Much like the title suggests, the Grammy-winning singer details every step of his life from childhood, to New Edition, to his sexual trysts, to his marriage to Whitney Houston and more.
According to the Associated Press, who bought the book, Brown covers pretty much every aspect of his life in his 322-page memoir. He reveals his sexual liaisons with Janet Jackson, Madonna and a ghost (no he wasn’t high on drugs).
Speaking of drugs, Brown also shares details about his drug usage as well as his Whitney Houston’s during their tumultuous marriage. He denies reports that he was responsible for Houston’s drug problems. The 47-year-old singer writes that the late pop icon was using cocaine and smoking pot before he was and continued to use drugs after he sobered up.
Brown also alleges in his book that Houston had a few extramarital affairs of her own and names the late Tupac Shakur as one of her ex-lovers.
Brown also chronicles his rise as a child star with New Edition to his R&B stardom as a solo artist with his 1988 multi-platinum-selling album, Don’t Be Cruel. Fellow musicians Ralph Tresvant and veteran producer Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds offer their testimonials of Brown’s rise in the R&B game.
Finally, Brown details his ongoing feud with Houston’s mother, singer Cissy Houston, and other in-laws, who he believes pushed him away from connecting with his late daughter, Bobbi Kristina. As for the negative finger pointing aimed at him, he writes, “Both Whitney and Kristi had been tragically lost on their watch, not mine.”
Bobby Brown’s tell-all memoir, Every Little Step, will hit bookstores on June 13. You can buy a copy of the book at HarperCollins.com.
