Bobby Brown Jr., the son of the R&B artist and producer, has died at a home Wednesday, according to Los Angeles police.
The cause of death was unclear, but no suspicion of foul play as of now, a Los Angeles police spokesman said. Brown Jr. was reportedly aged 28.
Initially, TMZ reported Bobby Brown Jr.’s expiry, citing a person considered to be a source close to the family.
Officials were called to the home in Encino for a medical emergency shortly before 2 p.m., the police spokesman said. More update about the circumstances leading up to the call was not available.
The Los Angeles County coroner is investigating the death.
Brown Jr. was the son of Bobby Brown and Kim Ward.
The elder Bobby Brown lost daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown in 2015 when she was 22. The only child of Brown and Whitney Houston was spotted face-down and unresponsive in a bathtub in January 2015 and slipped into a coma for six months prior to her death.
Investigators with the medical examiner’s office were not able to figure out exactly how Bobbi Kristina Brown died. An autopsy revealed that she had morphine, cocaine, alcohol and prescription drugs in her body, but the medical examiner couldn’t conclude whether she killed herself, whether someone else killed her or whether her death was accidental.
She was discovered in the bathtub just before the third anniversary of her mother’s death. Houston, a seven-time Grammy winner, was found submerged in a bathtub in a Beverly Hills, California, hotel on Feb. 11, 2012.
A representative for Bobby Brown, Nick Szatmari of Universal Attractions Agency, refused to comment.
Requests for comment from Brown’s lawyer and other representatives were not immediately returned Wednesday night. The elder Bobby Brown is known for hits including “My Prerogative” and “Every Little Step.” He also featured in the film “Ghostbusters II.”
