Bobby Brown denies abusing Whitney Houston: The public record is wrong


Frederick M. Brown/Getty Images Bobby Brown completely denies that he ever abused Whitney Houston.

“There was no violent incidents between me and Whitney,” Brown said Friday while promoting his BET biographical miniseries, The Bobby Brown Story, at the Television Critics Association press tour in Los Angeles.

When a reporter pointed out that there were 911 calls for a domestic violence incident involving him and Houston, Brown responded, “You’re mistaken. You’re completely wrong.”  When another reporter noted that the incident was a matter of public record, Brown said, “The public record is wrong.”

In 2003, CNN reported that Bobby was charged with battery under Georgia’s domestic violence law after an altercation with Whitney.  The New York Post reported that Whitney had called 911 after Bobby threatened to “beat her a**,” and when police arrived, the singer had “visible injuries to her face.”

Brown and Houston were married for 15 years before she was granted a divorce in 2007. A new documentary titled Whitney premiered in theaters July 6. It includes an interview with Brown talking about his former wife.  

The Bobby Brown Story will air in two parts in September on BET.
