Bobby Brown made a rare visit to the graves of Whitney Houston and their daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown. The R&B singer and his wife, Alicia Etheredge-Brown, detailed the “emotional” experience while filming the upcoming A&E series, Bobby Brown: Every Little Step, ET reported.
“When the cameras were following me, I didn’t want to let anything get in between my life and what I was doing,” Brown shared. “So, I just wanted the cameras to follow me wherever I was going. That day I happened to be going to the gravesite.”
“We also did our best to make that moment his moment,” said Etheredge-Brown, who accompanied him during the visit. “It was very emotional for both of us.”
While capturing footage of the couple for the series, Brown said that this was a sincere moment for her husband, and it was great for him to “have his moment” with his late ex-wife, who died on Feb. 11, 2012, and their daughter died three years later in 2015.
The “My Prerogative” artist gave fans a glimpse into his personal life, similar to his time filming Being Bobby Brown, which aired in 2005. Brown said working on Every Little Step and the two-part documentary Biography: Bobby Brown was a healing moment for him.
The 12-episode series will give fans “an exclusive look at his life with wife Alicia Etheredge-Brown, and their children as he focuses on new business ventures, new music as well as the 2022 reunion with New Edition on The Culture Tour,” while the documentary chronicles his “journey to superstardom and the fallout from his personal struggles with sobriety and the tragic deaths of his two children and first wife, Whitney Houston,” according to A&E.
“Being able to look back on all of the good times and all of the bad times, it gave me a sense of comfort,” Brown shared with the outlet as he opened up about his experience filming his previous series.
“When I did Being Bobby Brown that was during a time in my life that I was going through a lot of troubles,” he said. Whereas now, “I’m living a life that I can only dream of with my beautiful wife and my kids. It’s been a wonderful time. I’m really proud of the direction my life is going.”
He added, “I feel I have a lot more control. We work really good together, myself, my wife, [executive producers] Kevin [Swain] and Lauren [Lazin].”
When asked what he hopes fans get out of watching the series, Brown said, “I hope that they take the fact that I’ve gone through the rough patches in my life and I’m living my life in a clean and honest way… Like I was saying earlier, this is more of a therapeutic thing for me. It helps me maintain my sobriety. It helps me with everything I want to do in the future.”
