Bobby Brown on Whitney Houston’s Death: “God Needed Her for the Choir in Heaven”


By Daniel Gates



On Wednesday, the “Today Show” began airing Matt Lauer’s interview with Bobby Brown, the first time Brown has opened up since the death of his ex-wife Whitney Houston.


As Gossip Cop reported, Brown defends himself during the sit-down, saying that accusations Houston’s downward spiral could be attributed to his presence in her life are not true.

He maintains, “I’m not the reason she’s gone.”

Brown recounts seeing Houston a week before her death, calling their daughter Bobbi Kristina upon hearing the tragic news, and talks about whether he could have done more to prevent Houston from dying.

“Maybe I could have done something different to ensure that she had a longer life… but you have to want it, you know,” says Brown. “Some things just happen. God probably just needed her for the choir up there in heaven.”
