“No family, no parent should have to go through this,” says Brown, who with the help of his wife Alicia Etheredge, has made it his new mission to speak out about the dangers of drug abuse, particularly fentanyl.

Bobbi Kristina and Bobby, Jr. “both were musicians and loved to sing,” says Brown. Born just four months apart, “their relationship was close. They got into each other’s little fights, but they were tough as thieves.”

The pain of losing them is something he is still dealing with today. “I’ve cried, but not like I want to. I really want to scream at the top of my lungs and cry, but it’s not like that.”

Brown, who is sober and in therapy, says his remaining children, including Landon, LaPrincia and the three youngest with Etheredge, Cassius, Bodhi and Hendrix, help him get through his darkest days.
