The much-hyped biopic "The Bobby Brown Story" aired on Black Entertainment Television Tuesday night. The most talked about scene was the rumored hotel room fight between the New Edition singer and pop icon Janet Jackson.
According to Bobby, he had a secret love affair with Janet in the '90s that ended when he threw her out of his hotel room -- naked.
In one scene, Bobby (played by Woody McCain) asks Janet (Cree Davis) to define their relationship while they lay together in a hotel room bed.
At the time, if you believe Bobby, Janet was already involved in a longterm relationship with her fiancé, backup dancer Rene Elizondo.
"I mean, we obviously got feelings for each other,” Bobby says. “Are you really about to marry him and just keep me on the side?”
Bobby questioned whether Janet's family didn't want her to date a dark-skinned Black man -- which she denies.Rene
Bobby erupts in anger. “I’m worth $25 million, and he’s what, a damn backup dancer?” he says as Janet gets up to leave.
Viewers expected to see Bobby throw Janet out of the room wearing only her birthday suit. But that scene was apparently cut in the editing process.
I recall Janet addressing whether she slept with Bobby in an old Right On! magazine interview. If my memory is correct, Janet said she never dated Bobby.
The 52-year-old pop singer will answer the question once and for all on Steve Harvey’s iHeart Radio Show next Friday, Sept. 14.
"Hey u guys! I'm doing an @AskAnythingChat session with @SteveHarveyFM @iHeartRadio listeners," she tweeted on Wednesday. She also posted a link for fans to ask questions that she will answer on the podcast.
