In a preview of Wednesday’s (April 14) episode,  the member of New Edition spoke candidly stating,  “Alcohol, I started losing bodily function,” he said. “My body started shutting down because I was drinking that much… My body just was giving out on me. Even with alcohol, I got to the point where I needed it.”

The visuals he provided for the ladies during the broadcast went further, “I needed it to wake up. I needed it to stop the shakes, to function on a day-to-day basis. For me, it wasn’t recreational,” Brown continued. He also spoke openly about his son, Bobby Brown Jr. Additionally, Brown addressed the recent tragic loss of his 28-year-old son, Bobby Brown Jr. “Kids today, they’re trying different things,” he said of his son’s drug overdose. “They’re trying to get as high as they can possibly get. That’s a real problem because they don’t know what these drugs are being mixed with these days.”
