Bobby Brown wants you to know who he is now

“I don’t really watch all the memes,” he told CNN. “I try to stay away from things that might bother me.”

Instead, Brown focused on therapy.

The one-time “R&B bad boy” is sober, undergoing therapy, and excited to share his life story.

The A&E documentary “Biography: Bobby Brown” will air over two days, starting on Memorial Day and his documentary “Bobby Brown: Every Step” will premiere the next day.

The series will focus on his family life with wife Alicia Etheridge-Brown and their children Cassius, 12, Bodhi, 6, and Hendricks, 5.

Brown said he wasn’t concerned about opening his home and life to cameras.

“We’re doing great as a family and I want people to see that,” he said. “Families still have their ups and downs, but they’re always happy times and you should be proud of that.”

The singer also had a bad time.

He shared that he was molested by a priest as a child before he became a young star in the new edition of the boy band.

His later life included a high-profile battle with substance abuse and a series of arrests.

Then there’s her tumultuous marriage to Houston, which ended in 2007 after more than 14 years.

Following her death in 2012, their only child, Bobbi Kristina, died in 2015, and Brown’s son, Bobby Brown Jr., died in 2020.

Brown Sr. said he has coped by unraveling it all in therapy.

“Treatment is being able to talk about things I wouldn’t normally talk about, just taking all the cornrow nets out and giving people what I think I need to give them, and that’s what Bobby is all about,” he said.

He said he wasn’t even bothered by the fact that so many people were more focused on his tragedies than his victories, because “there are so many tragedies that it’s hard to focus on what I’m doing right.”

He does want the world to know that he and Houston are very much in love, that he is proud of all his children, and that he believes he is a better husband and father now because of what he’s been through.

Brown said he’s also working on new music, and as a solo artist and member of the new edition, he broke up with the group several times during the darker days, but has since reunited, most recently on a successful tour.

His message to those who might exclude him?

“Don’t look away,” he said. “I have more things to do.”
