Throwback Fridays: Remember When Bobby Brown Used To Date Janet Jackson?


I had no clue that singer Bobby Brown dated Janet Jackson until I read an excerpt in his autobiography “Being Bobby Brown: The Truth and Nothing But …”

“I can recall that I started drinking heavily when Janet Jackson and I broke up. Before I met Janet I would never drink hard liquor, I only drank beer. But after our break up, I started drinking hard liquor abundantly. I took the way our relationship ended very hard. Not to say we were head over heels in love, but she was someone I had a lot of feelings for. Besides, we were young and naive. I was only about 19 or 20 years old. Young love is no joke!”

Thanks to loyal reader Lisa Jackson for sending this scan of a now defunct Fresh magazine featuring lovebirds Bobby and Janet on the cover!

    she’s dangerous, that janet jackson. funny. you just had to know she was someone very special and to lose that….wow. her family probably frowned on that big time, followed by threats of ass whoopins from joe to her or bobby, didn’t matter who got it first. get in line.

    Sandra, you didn’t tell me that Lisa Wu Hartwell’s former manse in St Marlo is on the market now for $1.1M. nice. very nice crib. I’m going off memory, but I believe the value was at one point close to or slightly over 3M.

    I think Bobby was in a drug induced state because surely she couldn’t, wouldn’t, didn’t! there are drugs you can take that make you become delusional

    That pic looks like Janet was working on Rhythm Nation. Janet was gettin it in with Rene when that album came out and they got married in 1991.

    Bobby must have been drinking bc he knew that was just a PR relationship!

    Bobby’s memory is shady at best. I do not believe he and Janet were an item. This photo above looks like they were asked to pose together, not on a date.
