Bobby Brown is now commenting on the death of his ex-wife, Whitney Houston.
Brown sat down with the Today Show’s Matt Lauer in his first interview since the death of the "I Will Always Love You" singer.
In it, he tells Lauer, "I'm not the reason she's gone,” MSNBC reports, despite what some may believe.
The interview, which will air on Wednesday, also features the Being Bobby Brown star maintaining that he is "very much clean and sober from narcotics.”
Brown said he saw his former wife about a week before her passing and thought she looked very healthy. He explained she "had this glow about her that was just, you know, incredible. I'm saying to myself, you know, 'She must be ... she must be doing really well,' because she looked really well."
He also told Lauer that people who believe that Brown was the reason her life took a drastic turn are mistaken. He said that kind of talk “makes me feel terrible.”
"But you know, I know differently. I think if anyone ever knew us, if anybody ever spent time around us instead of time lookin' through the bubble, they would know how we felt about each other. They would know how happy we were together."
When they watched their reality show Being Bobby Brown, it was then that they “looked at the bubble and saw ourselves. We was able to see what other people were saying about us, you know? We was able to see that our drug use had affected our relationship, had affected the love that we felt for each other."
The Orlando Sentinel also reports that Brown said that drugs were in Houstons’ life “way before” he even met her and that he was not the one to introduce her to them.
