Fifty-three-year-old singer-songwriter Bobby Brown is no stranger to controversy and is now allowing the public a peek into his story, including the deaths of two of his children.
The two-part series "Biography: Bobby Brown" holds nothing back as it dives deep into the Grammy-Award-winning R&B artist Bobby Brown's rise to the top.
But this docuseries goes beyond his music career, covering the many traumas and his infamous relationship with the late Whitney Houston.

Houston won't be the only big name involved in this project. His fellow "New Edition" members and other famous individuals such as Usher and Jermaine Dupri, add to the grand narrative that is Brown's life. Speaking about the documentary, the singer stated:
"It was very therapeutic for me to dig deep into my guts; going back to the traumas of my childhood. That's the most of why we decided to do this now."
Brown, who has spoken about how actual therapy has helped him, has faced tumultuous times. He lays it all out for the world to see -- he opens up about facing sexual abuse as a child, grappling with substance abuse, and losing two of his children, Bobbi Kristina Brown and Bobby Brown Jr.
EVERYTHING WE KNOW ABOUT BOBBY BROWN'S SEVEN KIDS
One area of Brown's personal life that many hope to learn more about in the documentary is the seven children he had with four different women and the grief he faced when two of these kids passed.
His oldest child is Landon Brown, born in the mid-1980s to his mother, Melika Williams. Involved in more than one area in the entertainment industry, Landon has forged a career in music.
Kim Ward, who had a complicated relationship with Brown, gave birth to their now 33-three-year-old daughter La'Princia Brown. She and Eddie Ray married in 2021, but there is little information on her as she shies away from the public's eye.
Three of Brown's children, 5-year-old Hendrix Estelle Sheba Brown, 6-year-old Bodhi Jameson Rein Brown, and 12-year-old Cassius Brown, belong to him and his current wife, Alicia Etheredge.
Bobbi Kristina Brown, born in 1993, was the only child he had with his former wife, the late Houston, after she suffered several miscarriages. Tragically, three years after Houston's death, Bobbi Kristina passed away from drug abuse.
Bobby Brown Jr., the second child of the "My Prerogative" singer and Ward, sadly also passed away after an unintended overdose. The musician was born in 1991 and died in November 2021 at 28.
BOBBY BROWN'S BATTLE WITH GRIEF
Speaking about the passing of his two kids, Brown expressed that no father should have to go through this. He opened up about how he sees them when he is asleep:
"I always see them at beaches or in fields. They're running away, but they're laughing. And they're always together.
Brown explained that he didn't have many dreams about his late daughter before his late son died, but after he passed, they are continuous. While the pain of losing them is still there, he said his other five kids help him move forward.
MEET BOBBY BROWN'S WIFE OF TEN YEARS
Etheredge is multitalented, working as a producer and an entertainment manager. She is also a former video model. She and Brown met in 1989.
Their relationship was utterly platonic to the point where Etheredge helped him walk down the aisle with Houston when he had the wedding jitters.
After his divorce from the iconic "I Will Always Love You" vocalist in 2007, Etheredge and Brown eventually got together and married in 2012. His wife said about their relationship: "I am the yin to his yang."
