Many fingers were pointed at Bobby Brown following Whitney Houston's sudden death earlier this year but during his first interview since her passing the singer insisted that he is 'not the reason she's gone'.
In a US TV show interview, due to go out live tomorrow May 2, Brown has expressly said that he is not to blame for her self-destructive behaviour, and he wishes that people would stop pointing the finger at him.
Speaking to Matt Lauer on the Today show, Bobby admits that such accusations "make me feel terrible. But you know, I know differently.”
He continues: “I think if anyone ever knew us, if anybody ever spent time around us . . . they would know how we felt about each other.
They would know how happy we were together." The 43-year-old singer reveals that he didn’t introduce Whitney to drugs and that Whitney used them “way before” the pair met and married in 1992.
Bobby, who has been clean for seven years, emotionally told the Today host: "I love that woman with everything that I am. And I believe she loved me the same way. We wouldn't have been able to make the most beautiful girl in the world-- without love. And that's the truth."
Fans of Whitney Houston have taken to Twitter to back Brown's claims.
One fan said: ''im sick of people blaming bobby why do people think bobby got her hooked on drugs?because thats what the media want you to think? whitney has never said bobby got her on drugs or blamed him for her addiction so why are other people.''
