Friends of singer Bobby Brown's son, Bobby Brown Jr, believe that the 28-year-old's death was an "accident" and that he was happy and had expressed his desire to become a father days before his demise. Brown Jr was found dead at his father's house in Encino, California, earlier this week on Wednesday, November 18. The cause of his death has not yet been revealed.
Bobby Jr was reportedly suffering from "flu-like symptoms" and had a heart condition, his roommates, however, told The Sun, that he did not disclose to them any health issues. His closest friends reportedly said that Bobby Jr appeared in good spirits days leading up to his death and was dearly loved by his 22-year-old girlfriend Anna Reed. It is believed that Reed was with him at the time of his death. The 22-year-old took to Twitter after Bobby Jr's demise, and wrote: "The heavens gained an angel but I lost my soul mate."
Bobby Jr's best friend, musician 6oz (Travis Roldan), in an interview with the outlet, said that he lived with the singer's son and some of their friends until recently and they were soon moving into a new house in north Hollywood. The friend added: "I don't think that there's any foul play involved. I don't think it was a physical thing, but I think whatever did occur was an accident because he definitely loved life a lot. We were his best friends, he lived with us for two years. I saw him every day. We had an apartment in Hollywood and before that we had an apartment in Century City. He was our family. We just moved out of the apartment three days ago. So we were kind of in limbo of, you know, where everyone was going to go."
“He seemed really happy, he was always telling me how much he liked her," he said, referring to Reed. "They had only been dating a few months I think but he wanted to have kids," the artist continued and recalled the last thing he said to Bobby Jr was, "Can you believe that our kids are gonna grow up together?" and he was "excited" about the idea of settling down.
6oz added: "He had finally found somebody who he wanted to start a family with and he was very close with his father. He was going to be a great dad. He would have been incredible. He was the sweetest, nicest person, smart and talented, and just a complete joy to be around all the time. He was so humble. When I first met him I thought there was no way that he was this superstar's son, he was just Bobby. Bobby hadn't even been to the new house yet in north Hollywood, he was staying with his father and his girlfriend."
The friend revealed that he found out about Bobby Jr's death through their housemate Levi Thomas, 27. Thomas called him and they rushed to Bobby Brown's house before returning home. 6oz said: "I was like, ‘That’s not possible, he just texted me last night’. The last thing I said to him was I love you. But before we got to his dad’s house we found out it was true. We went back home and had everyone who was close to him come over to mourn the loss of one of our best friends. I honestly don't know what happened, but I 100 percent believe this was an accident, he didn’t want to take his own life or anything like that. He had good energy all the time."
