Red Table Talk
Bobby Brown blames Nick Gordon, who he helped raise, for the deaths of his former wife Whitney Houston and daughter Bobbi Kristina.
Brown made the revelation during an episode of Facebook series "Red Table Talk" with host Jada Pinkett Smith and her co-hosts, daughter Willow Smith and mom Adrienne Banfield-Norris.
Brown said he believed foul play was involved in Bobbi Kristina's death in 2015.
When asked if Nick provided Bobbi Kristina with drugs, Brown replied, "Definitely." He also blamed Nick for Whitney's death in 2012.
"He was the only one there with both situations with my ex-wife and with my daughter and they both died the same way."
"Yeah I think... this is my opinion of who I think this young man was. Being around my daughter and being around my ex-wife, I think he was more so of a provider of 'party favors.'"
Brown opened up about the effects drugs had on him and his family.
He partially blames himself for exposing Bobby Jr. to his own drug use following the 28 year old's overdose death last year.

The coroner's office ruled Bobby Jr. died after accidentally ingesting a deadly cocktail of drugs and alcohol on November 18. But the singer insists his son wasn't a drug addict.
"He wasn't a user. He would experiment with different things. It wasn't like he was dependent on drugs like when I was in my situation," the "My Prerogative" singer said.
Addressing his own history of substance abuse, he said, "I depended (on drugs), I needed it. He was a young man who tried the wrong stuff and it took him out of here."
Brown regrets not confronting Nick about providing drugs to Whitney and Bobbi Kristina.
"Did you ever have a chance to confront that young man?" Jada asked.
"No, no I didn't," said Brown. "In fact, before his death, I was in rehab at the time when he passed [in January 2020]. I had planned on once I left rehab to approach the young man just to find out how my daughter was in the last days, but, no, I never got a chance to find out from him or talk to him."
