Bobby Brown Jr's ex-girlfriend says she was the 'love of his life' and he saved her from an abusive relationship & drugs

 

BOBBY Brown Jr's ex-girlfriend says she was the "love of his life" and he saved her from an abusive relationship and drugs, worried she would succumb to the same fate as his sister, Bobbi Kristina.

Jennifer Tatiana, 27, dated singer Bobby Brown's son on and off for three years and says they planned to get back together and one day marry.

The 28-year-old was found dead on November 18 at his father's house in LA.

Reports claim he was suffering from "flu like symptoms," while he also had a heart condition. His official cause of death is not yet known.

Bobby's ex, who says she accepted he had started dating new girlfriend, 22-year-old Anna Reed, in recent weeks, claims the pair were still in touch and he last told her he loved her in October.

Talking about his sudden death, Jennifer told The Sun: "I feel like a piece of me has been torn out. I literally feel so empty.

"It's like my other half is gone, and I was the love of his life. We told each other forever, and this isn't forever, it's just a wave of emotions.

"I'm taking it a day at a time, but I truly feel like he's still here. He has too much spirit to just leave.

"I'm so sad I don't get to see him live out his dreams, play sold out arenas and follow in his dad's footsteps, and living up to that name he was so blessed to have."

The pair first met in 2018 after Bobby reached out through Instagram and she says the couple had an "instant connection".

During a break last year, Jennifer ended up in a short-lived abusive relationship with a man who beat her and got her into drugs, including Xanax and Percocet, an opioid.

She says Bobby was terrified she would end up dying like his half sister, Bobbi Kristina, who passed away in July 2015 after spending six months in a coma.

The tragic 22-year-old was found unconscious in a bathtub in her home – mirroring her famous mother Whitney Houston's death three years earlier.


The underlying cause of Bobbi's death was "immersion associated with drug intoxication" after an autopsy found several narcotics and prescription drugs in her body.

According to reports, she was in a "controlling" relationship with her fiance, Nick Gordon, who died of an accidental heroin overdose on New Year's Day this year aged 30.

Jennifer said Bobby often spoke to her about his sister's death, and was desperate for his ex to get help.

"Bobby had seen I was going down the same path as his sister, God rest her soul," Jennifer told The Sun.

"Even when we weren't together he made a point like, 'I love you to death, I refuse to sit here and see my future wife go down this [route]. I won't give up until I get you out of this.'

"I really did almost end up dying and wound up in the hospital. At that point he was like, 'I'm not playing with this anymore, you gotta get out'.

"He would say, 'I already lost someone that I love so much, I can't lose someone else that I love.'

"The guy I was dating struggled with drug addiction and he kind of dragged me down with him, he had me there doped up on the couch next to him.

"I couldn't tell my friends, I was too scared. He [Bobby] was the only person I could talk to.

"Even when I told him [Bobby] he never judged me, he really just loved me unconditionally. It sounds crazy but Bobby really saved my life.

"He wrote a song about my abusive relationship called, Say Something. He said, 'I know that this is for you, but I wanted to write it in a way that still touches the hearts of women going through what you went through.'

"We got back together. We had stuff we were dealing with, but we loved each other so much.

"We both had moments where we were dating other people, but we talked about the end goal, getting married and having kids one day."

Jennifer says she also went through a difficult time after being hit by a drunk driver and Bobby went to visit her in hospital.

"I'd told him a couple of days before that I'd been struggling, I was so depressed," she recalled. "I told him I was kind of sad I survived it because I felt so sad and lonely.

"He was like, 'Stop talking like that, I don't ever want you to feel like this, I don't know what I'd do if you weren't here'.

"It just sucks, I have to deal with him now not being here. I couldn't do this without my best friends."

They dated until around August before splitting up again, but Bobby kept in touch and The Sun has seen text messages from the singer saying he still loved Jennifer.

"I told him, 'Look, I love you, I'm always going to love you, but right now I need my space so I can get back on top and give you the best version of myself," she said.

"He sent me a little message at 4am before he passed away, it was Wednesday morning. I was asleep and didn't see it. I don't want to say what it was but it was just a joke message.

"I didn't know Bobby was gone, I responded and didn't find out until later that something had happened. I waited all day [for a response].

"I was sitting at the front of a restaurant ready to eat with my friends and I opened my Instagram, the first thing that pops up … a tabloid post saying 'Bobby Brown Jnr. Dead at 28.'

"I looked at it for a second, silent, then I read it again and just started screaming. I called one of his best friends and he confirmed it. I still don't want to believe it."

Jennifer says she didn't know he was sick, but claimed he told her he was diagnosed with a heart condition as a child and had an operation, which left a visible scar on his chest.

"We never talked about it being a serious problem in his adult years, but I guess with heart problems things can arise," she said.

"I saw a video someone posted that night and he seemed fine, on his girlfriend's Instagram Story.

"I didn't really know much about her, he'd only started dating her a few weeks ago.

"He messaged me and told me he had a girlfriend, when we were split up we'd always tell each other.

"I knew we'd reconnect. I didn't argue with him, but I told him I hoped she was everything he wanted and she'd help him become the man he was destined to be."

Jennifer described her ex as a "very other worldly" and said he was excited to release new music having written and recorded an album.

She says Bobby was "so grateful" for his famous family and although he felt pressure to live up to their name, he was happy for the opportunities he'd been given and his dad fully supported his music dream.

"I'm just sad that he's not going to be here for the success, everything he worked so f***ing hard for, all the blood, sweat and tears," she said.

"He wanted to deliver a message to everyone through his music and continue that legacy. He was a rockstar."
