‘Bobby Brown Story’ Showcases Relationship with Janet Jackson + Did Bobby Have a Stroke?
Bobby Brown and Janet Jackson date
BET’s “The Bobby Brown Story” will detail Bobby’s complex relationship with his past wife Whitney Houston and daughter Bobbi Kristina.
However, Bobby’s relationship with Janet Jackson will be discussed. As discussed in his book, “Every Little Step,” Bobby had a deep infatuation with the R&B star.
As told to US Weekly back in 2016, Janet didn’t feel the same way about him.
In fact, he says she was still married at the time. Bobby allegedly also had to deal with colorism, thanks to Janet’s father Joe.
“I fell in love with [Janet] when she was Penny on Good Times,” the 47-year-old New Edition singer told Us Weekly in an exclusive interview. “It goes back that far, you know, my infatuation with her.”
Brown confessed that he thought Jackson would leave Elizondo Jr. for him, but it soon became clear that their affair had to come to an end when “she told me she wasn’t in love with me,” he said.
“She loved me but wasn’t in love with me,” Brown said, adding that the Rhythm Nation singer told him, “My father won’t allow me to be with a black man.” At that, Brown wrote in his book, he kicked her out of the hotel room where they had been “lying in bed after having sex.”
“I exploded and I threw her out,” he penned.
In a clip from the biopic, Bobby surprised Janet with a major birthday gift; a car. However, thanks to her marriage and Joe, when Bobby showed up to her front door with the car, she wasn’t thrilled.
Check out the clip below.
Did Bobby Brown kick Janet Jackson out of his hotel room?
Yes, according to the biopic via Page Six.
In a scene in the two-part “The Bobby Brown Story,” the New Edition star — played by Woody McClain — is seen lying in bed with the Jackson character after the pair get it on.
But they begin to argue over James DeBarge, whom Jackson married in 1984. When an infuriated Jackson gets up to leave, Brown says, “You too good to be in my room, then you can get the hell out of here!”
Did Bobby Brown Have a Stroke?
An anticipated scene in “The Bobby Brown Story” will be a scene where he has an apparent stroke. Bobby actually talked about this stroke occurring in a previous tell-all book.
Back in 2011, Bobby told People Magazine he had the stroke due to his prolonged drug use. In the stroke scene, Whitney Houston kicks him while he’s laid out on the floor.
The Boston Herald noted how this scene, and many others, vilified Whitney Houston.
With Bobby as a co-executive producer, the film doubles as image rehab, though viewers may be surprised by how much Whitney is vilified. It’s not that she’s thrown under the bus. It’s as if she’s tossed off a chasm, the ground filled in and salted.
The low point in their relationship might be when he suffers a stroke in their mansion and she takes her drugs, gives him a kick and leaves the help to deal with him.
How did Bobby Brown meet Whitney Houston?
Its been revealed that Bobby met Whitney at the Soul Train Music Awards. What the movie will also address is Bobby’s claim that he did not introduce Whitney to heavy drug use.
During an interview with Steve Harvey, Bobby said Whitney knew about drugs before they met. In fact, a scene in the movie will show Bobby catching Whitney doing coke on their wedding day, which led to Bobby himself into a lifestyle of hard drugs.
During the interview, Steve asked:
The rumors have it, you know… there are drugs involved; That you introduced drugs to Whitney. What really happened?
I didn’t introduce drugs to Whitney at all. We did drugs together. There was no introducing her to anything. She already knew what she knew about drugs.
I mean, when I was growing up with New Edition, we smoked weed, we drank beers, and things like that. I didn’t get into really heavy drugs until I met Whitney.

“The Bobby Brown Story” premieres tonight at 9pm est. on BET.
