In a candid sit-down set to air Wednesday, Brown, who says he’s “very much clean and sober from narcotics,” talks to Lauer about the last time he saw Houston, how he found out about her death, and why he gets blamed for her drug use. He talks about his relationship with their daughter, Bobbi Kristina, and addresses recent rumors and controversy surrounding her personal life. And Thursday, speaking publicly for the first time, three of Brown’s children and his fiancée tell TODAY how they feel about the media’s portrayal of Brown.
When asked about the last time he saw Houston, a week or so before she died, Brown says the iconic singer “had this glow about her that was just, you know, incredible. I’m saying to myself, you know, ‘She must be … she must be doing really well,’ because she looked really well.”
Brown says Houston, to whom he was married for 15 years, “looked like she was in a good place.”
