Bobby Brown has denied claims that he ever abused his late ex-wife Whitney Houston, despite several documented incidents of violence.
The singer attempted to set the record straight during the TCA summer press tour for his new BET miniseries The Bobby Brown Story at Beverly Hilton Hotel—the same hotel where his ex-wife Whitney Houston died over six years ago.
“There was no violent incidents between me and Whitney so, no,” said the 49-year-old told a reporter. And when a journalist asked about 911 calls Houston made which were on public record, Brown replied: “No there wasn’t [any calls]. You’re mistaken. You’re completely wrong. You’re completely wrong.”
Another reporter read from an article with transcripts of Houston calling 911 on Brown, to which the singer responded, saying: “The public record is wrong.”
This comes a day after Brown revealed his plans to build a domestic violence shelter in memory his daughter Bobbi Kristina, who died three years ago.
Now, his denial has raised eyebrows as many people are now questioning the accuracy of his upcoming miniseries, which he claims will clear up the misconceptions about his character.
“I think the bad boy image came from me being onstage, not from me being a human being,” he said during the panel. “You see me in person, meet me somewhere, you won’t call me a bad guy. You’ll call me Bobby.”
