Four months after the untimely death of Bobby Brown's son Bobby Jr., his death has been classified as "accidental." Here's everything we know about the cause of his death.


On November 18, 2020, singer Bobby Brown's son Bobby Brown Jr. was found dead in his L.A. area home. Four months after the tragedy, the LA County Medical Examiner's Office has finally revealed what happened. 

In a report obtained by TMZ, Bobby Jr.'s autopsy and toxicology reports indicate a fatal combination of alcohol, synthetic opioid Fentanyl, and cocaine.



The report further reveals an eyewitness told police the 28-year-old had taken cocaine on top of half a Percocet and tequila. The manner of death has been classified as accidental. 

Bobby Jr.'s death was another heartbreaking tragedy for the Brown family.


TMZ first broke the story of Bobby Jr.'s death and reported no foul play was involved in the case. The law enforcement sources did not find any drugs at the scene. 

According to Bobby Jr.'s family, he had been feeling unwell during his final days and suffered from flu-like symptoms. A source reportedly told TMZ he did not have COVID-19. 



Bobby Jr. was following in his father's footsteps to start a music career. He was one of two children born during his father's 11-year on-and-off relationship with Kim Ward. 

Bobby Jr.'s death was another heartbreaking tragedy for the Brown family. Brown's second wife and iconic singer, Whitney Houston, was found dead in a Beverly Hills hotel bathtub.

The accidental drowning was caused by longtime cocaine abuse and heart disease. She and Brown shared a daughter, Bobbi Kristina, who suffered the same fate as her mother. 

Kristina was found to have accidentally drowned in a bathtub with toxic levels of alcohol and cocaine in her system. She passed away in July 2015 after spending several months on life support. 

Kristina was buried next to her mother in a New Jersey cemetery. The Browns blamed her ex-fiancé, Nick Gordon, for the tragedy, but he was never charged in the case. He, too, died at 30 due to drug abuse.
