Bobby Brown Jr. allegedly called friends just hours before his death to say he suspected he was seriously ill.
Singer Bobby Brown’s 28-year-old son was said to be coughing intensely during the phone call and feeling congested.
Karey Graves, a friend of the late rapper, told DailyMail.com that Bobby Jr. had been suffering from a heart condition since childhood.
He told the publication that Bobby Jr. was “born with a heart condition” and in the call he had said “he is sick” and “you never know what you will die.”
Karey said Bobby refused to seek medical help “because he had a phobia of hospitals” but said he was “shy” and “knew something was going to happen.”
Karey believes Bobby Jr. may have been battling a coronavirus “or perhaps another illness that didn’t make it easy for his pre-existing heart condition.”
He described Bobby Jr. as sounding like a cold.
He probably “sounded congested” and heard her “cough intensely.”
Karey added that it was “so strange” that Bobby Jr. had reached out to her because they were “not on good terms.”
He said he then told her that he was in love with her and that he “wished we could be together.”
Bobby Jr. was dating Anna Reed at the time of his death and lovingly paid tribute to him on Twitter.
Along with a sad emoji, he wrote: “Heaven won an angel but I lost my soul mate.”
This tribute followed a cryptic message he posted that suggested how Bobby Jr. might have died.
He tweeted: “Overdose is a lesson, if you don’t learn then you are fatal.”
The Los Angeles Police Department said in a statement: “On November 18, 2020, at approximately 1:50 pm, officers from the LAPD West Valley Department responded to a call of a medical emergency at 5200 White Oak Avenue.
“Officers found a man, unconscious, and not breathing. P.
“he was identified as male as Bobby Brown Jr. (son of Bobby Brown Sr) and was pronounced on the spot.
“The Coroner’s Office has been notified and is handling the investigation, there is no evidence of foul play.”
