Brown Jr., whose mother is Kim Ward, is the second of Brown's seven children to die. In 2015, Bobbi Kristina Brown passed away after spending nearly seven months in a coma. Much like the events leading up to her late mother Whitney Houston's own demise, the 22-year-old was found unconscious in a bathtub. 

On New Year's Day 2020, Nick Gordon, Bobbi Kristina's ex-boyfriend who was often described as Whitney's unofficial adopted son, died at age 30 from an accidental drug overdose

Bobby Jr.'s purported girlfriendAnna Reed, mourned his death in an Instagram post, which read in part, "I feel a constant emptiness without you, my best friend, my forever. No one needs to know or understand what we had, cause me without you means OUR story continues when we meet in the next life."
