    7 Shocking Claims From "The Bobby Brown Story" Special

    I didn't see any of this coming.

    Part two of The Bobby Brown Story aired last night and it was just as eventful as the first installment. Here's a rundown of some of the most shocking moments depicted in the BET special:

    DISCLAIMER: The list you’re about to read are based off Bobby Brown’s autobiography, which eventually inspired the BET special, The Bobby Bobby Brown Story. These moments reflect his version of events.

    1. While on drugs, Bobby almost shot Whitney Houston.

    In the scene, Bobby Brown believed the nail file Houston was holding was actually a knife, and that she was planning to kill him. He also imagined the other people on the tour bus were talking badly about him. Brown looked at her and said, "You don't think I know you're trying to kill me?" He then proceeded to run off the bus with a loaded gun onto someone's property.

    2. Bobby Brown suffered a stroke due to his drug use.

    Although initial reports stated Brown had a seizure after extreme heat exposure and an intense recording schedule, it was later revealed the artist suffered a stroke caused by illegal drug use.

    3. After Bobby's stroke, Whitney and Bobby promised each other they'd get sober.

    Realizing all the damage drugs had caused them individually and as a unit, Brown and Houston vowed to rid themselves of drugs completely.

    4. Bobby actually got clean in jail.

    Brown used his time in prison to get off drugs. The BET special showed Brown suffering from withdrawals, while trying to beat his addiction.

    Brown made this statement on Dr. Oz in 2016:

    "Jail got me to stop taking drugs. I never wanted to go back to jail. I didn’t want to be incarcerated ever, ever again."

    5. Bobby Brown accused Whitney Houston of cheating on him.

    Based off the BET special, we all know Brown had a hard time saying no to the ladies. One act of infidelity even led to another woman becoming pregnant, while Brown and Houston were engaged AND expecting a child of their own.

    Well in part two, Brown says, "I'm not the only one who cheated." There is even a scene where Brown catches Houston trying to sneak another man into their house.

    6. Bobbi Kristina and her dad reconnected just one year before she died.

    7. Bobby Brown knew his current wife Alicia Etheredge before he met Whitney Houston.
