The son of R&B star Bobby Brown died after ingesting a deadly cocktail of drugs and alcohol, coroners have ruled.
His loved ones insisted his death wasn’t COVID-19 related, and after an initial deferment, authorities at the Los Angeles County Medical Examiner’s Office have now released their findings: the 28-year-old had traces of booze, cocaine, and fentanyl in his system.
According to the autopsy, Bobby, Jr. was seen downing tequila and snorting cocaine and half a pill of the opioid Percocet – which was reportedly cut with fentanyl.
His death has been declared accidental, but an investigation could be underway to determine who sold him the deadly combination.
Bobby, Jr.’s loss was the latest personal tragedy for the former New Edition star – his daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown, died in July 2015, six months after she was found unresponsive in a bathtub in her Atlanta, Georgia home and placed in a medically induced coma.
She was also found to have toxic levels of alcohol and cocaine in her system.
Bobbi Kristina’s mother, Brown’s ex-wife Whitney Houston, died in an eerily similar situation in 2012.
