Brandy breaks down as she opens up about the single darkest time in her life on tonight’s episode of “Behind the Music,” airing April 25, 9 p.m. EST.
Brandy says through tears,“I would hear what people would say, and still to this day they know that that’s a button. They know that they can call me a murderer or call me someone that killed someone. They know that is a button for me. A murderer is someone who premeditates it. I didn’t wake up that day to be involved in a fatal car crash. I didn’t plan for that. And if I could take it back, I would.”
In December 2006, Brandy was involved in a fatal car accident in California and Awatif Aboudihaj died. The Los Angeles city attorney’s concluded that there was “insufficient evidence” to convict her of misdemeanor vehicular manslaughter after a series of investigations. She was also hit with a $50 million lawsuit.
On “Behind the Music”Brandy said. ” I just wanted people to know that this wasn’t news. It’s not something that should be talked about like it’s gossip. You don’t like me? Fine. But don’t use this situation to try to hurt me, because the guilt of being involved is enough. It’s something that I’ll never truly, truly get over. Ever.”
