Bobby Brown denies ever having hit Whitney Houston, claims Whitney never made the 911 call
In 2003, Bobby Brown was charged with domestic battery after he got into an argument with Whitney Houston and the two even appeared in court together
Bobby Brown has finally addressed his alleged history of domestic violence with his late wife and music icon Whitney Houston and has denied all claims of him ever having been violent towards his wife. Houston and Brown were married from 1992 to 2007 and, in 2003, police responded to a 911 call to the couple’s house and found Houston with a bruised cheek and a cut lip. She told the cops that Brown had hit her.
During an appearance at the TCA summer press tour on Friday, where Brown was present the upcoming BET miniseries about his life 'The Bobby Brown Story', he was asked about his allegedly tumultuous history with his late wife and he denied that the 2003 domestic violence incident had ever taken place, reports Page Six. In the said incident, Brown had been charged with battery that was a result of an argument with Houston. At the time, Houston had appeared beside him in court.
“The public record is wrong,” Brown has recently shared with reporters about the alleged domestic battery incident from the past. He added: “I think the bad boy image came from me being on stage, not from me being a human being,” he said. “You see me in person, meet me somewhere, you won’t call me a bad guy. You’ll call me Bobby.”
Brown's upcoming biopic reportedly is expected to cover his rise with New Edition and delve deeper into showcasing his solo career and marriage to Whitney Houston. And, of course, there will be ample coverage of all the sex, drugs and several chart-topping hits that he delivered.
Earlier this week, Brown had also announced that he would be creating a domestic violence center in honor of his daughter Bobbi Kristina, honoring the three-year anniversary of her passing, as reported by the Atlanta journal-Constitution.
“Our family lives with the pain everyday of losing my beautiful daughter, Bobbi Kristina, to domestic violence,” Brown said in a statement. “She loved Atlanta and in her memory we are proud to announce the formation of the Bobbi Kristina Serenity House. Our initial goal is to help educate women and men of all ages, by creating a 24-hour crisis intervention line and emergency transitional shelter.”
Brown, who became notoriously known for his onstage and offstage behavior at the peak of his career insists that, when he looks back at those times, he does not really regret any of this. “If you have regrets in your life, you can’t grow,” he said. “I have no regrets.”
