Bobby Brown Speaks Out About Whitney Houston's Death On "The Today Show," Said He Didn't Do Narcotics Before Meeting Whitney

For the first time since Whitney Houston's death, we're hearing her ex-husband Bobby Brown speak out in his own words.  His response to being blamed for figuratively killing Whitney and how his current fiancee feels about their past love, inside...

In part 1 of this morning's Matt Lauer interview with Bobby Brown (above), the singer spoke out in response to those who blame him for introducing his ex-wife Whitney Houston to drugs.

Bobby maintained that he didn't even do drugs before meeting Whitney (aside from weed and alcohol) and when he was introduced to it in their relationship, his addictive personality allowed for things to get out of control.

Matt asked Bobby what he could have done differently when he saw Whitney spiraling out of control, and Bobby responded:

"I coulda done something different, you know to -- ensure that she had a longer life. But ... you have to want it, you know?"

He said they were so in love and so deep into their addiction that the first season fo "Being Bobby Brown" was a wake up call.  Their drug use was affecting their relationship and their daughter.  And they saw just how they looked int he public eye.  Whitney refused to do another season, and the couple also filed for divorce the following year in 2006.

Bobby says he had so much love for her and never would want to hurt her:

"My fiancee knows how I felt about that woman," Brown said. "My kids know how I feel ... how I felt about Whitney. It's not a secret, you know? I was in love with her deeply."

Bobby revealed he found out that Whitney died from his New Edition groupmate Ralph Tresvant while they were on stage. 

Part 2 will air tomorrow morning.

@Star Sorry Bobby Brown is

@Star Sorry Bobby Brown is not blameless. He may not have been present when Whitney died but if you look at the span of their relationship you can say that when she got him him her career started to go DOWN. The relationship between these two was TOXIC and people have every right to point that out. Just look at his fractured relationship with Krissy? I guess in your mind Bobby has NO responsibility in that regard either? As a Husband and as a Father Bobby Brown is a complete FAILURE. I don't think he bares ALL the responsibility but he does bare some of it. Addiction is not something you can just give up after years of abuse. And it's obvious that Bobby did NOTHING to save his wife when he could have just as he is in denial about the condition of his daughter. If Krissy were my daughter I would be repairing that relationship and getting her away from the vultures she is currently with. It's never to late to make amends for something. And Krissy is at the stage where they can at least have a stronger relationship.

Yes he was a willing

Yes he was a willing participant in her drug life, but to try and place her death on him which is what people have been saying and insinuating is Total Overkill. It's easy to make him the scapegoat and society's whipping boy which is why I am holding on to my opinion that it's Not his fault. In terms of their daughter, I completely agree that she needs to have a relationship with Bobby and that she needs drug treatment because she is def in the early stages of addiction.

I agree Star. I also believe

I agree Star. I also believe Bobby. for some of you too young to remember Whitney during her EARLY reign, there was always talks of drug abuse, we didn't have the internet, we had real claims from her concerned camp. This was long before Bobby. This is why you will see so many folks defending him. He is NOT to blame for her death, please leave him out of this. I hate to see him do something crazy like commit suicide behind all this backlash that has gotten worse over the decades. He has children and grands to care for, respect the mans privacy I'm sure he's very hurt as nobody knew Whitney better than him.

I'm glad Bobby did this

I'm glad Bobby did this interview...I hope people will stop blaming him. I never thought that he was the one who introduced Whitney to cocaine and while I do think they were toxic to one another during the course of their relationship, people need to stop pointing the finger at him. I'll always love Whitney's music and her public persona...but even her family in their interview with Oprah said that Bobby was a good guy. Stop blaming the man and let him live!!!

I believe Bobby. He wouldnt

I believe Bobby. He wouldnt lie on Whitney like that and this has been said for years. I think its quite pathetic how people automatically blame him as if Whitney Houston were not her own woman. Whitney wouldn't be so easily persuaded to go down that road if she hadnt already done it before. They really were madly in love. Real love and it just spiraled out of control because of outside influences. I can relate. Rest in Peace Auntie Whitney! I will always love you : ) *Side eye to Ralph telling Bobby on stage. Really?

Anyone who really followed

Anyone who really followed her career from the start knows that she was doing coke long before she met Bobby the world want's to condem the man but at the end of the day He is still here 7 years clean and she died with coke in her system. So the choice was hers to get clean and she didn't choose wisely.

I believe him. Unfortunately, Whitney had access to drugs way before she met Bobby. He has the " bad boy" image so he is an easy target. Bobby had his list of issues as did Whitney, they both came with baggage and it was a toxic mix.

I saw an interview with Bobby,Whitney and his mom with Barbara Walters and they all said they same thing he did weed occasionally but didn't do the heavy stuff until he got with her, she agreed.. That's where she said the whole "crack is whack" stupid shiot!

Come on Bobby, He did not

Come on Bobby, He did not get her on drugs…I do have to say Bobby tells different versions about when he got on drugs besides weed. He said something different in Behind the Music. His statement ” “I didn’t get high [on narcotics] before I met Whitney,” sounds like he’s blaming her. In Behind the Music he said he was living a fast life and had access to any and everything he wanted from women to drugs. He said he developed a taste for Cocaine and then he said he met Whitney. He was doing it too before he met her according to him.As much as I don’t believe Bob got Whitney on drugs.. I don’t believe she got him on it either like he is trying to say. I think that both was on that shit when they met and it got out of control . I have never heard any of her family state publicly that Whitney’s drug addiction was Bobby’s fault. People are mixing up fans and media with the family. Also let’s be real, outside of Whitney, bobby created his own public image. Pissing in cop cars, in and out of jail, not paying his child support, Whitney calling the police for domestic violence and while married having an affair with Superhead. I actually like Bobby, but he is very image conscious, more than Whitney ever was. Bobby, people don't divorce after 14 years of being together if they are happy. He ain't being truthful and it's sad.
