Bobby Brown was interviewed on ABC’s 20/20 by Robin Roberts where he claimed he once had sex with a ghost after buying a ‘spooky’ mansion – but insisted he was not under the influence of drugs at the time.
In the interview he explained: ‘I bought this mansion in Georgia. This was a really, really spooky place.
‘One time, I woke up and, yeah, a ghost…I was being mounted by a ghost. I wasn’t high. I was not trippin’.
He revealed how his daughter grew distant from him and other family members following the death of her mother in 2012 but said the pair had an emotional reunion on Father’s Day two years later.
‘That was a special day,’ Brown told Roberts as he fought back tears, adding that things were going so well with his daughter she had decided to move to Los Angeles [where he lived] two days before the incident.
‘If I could get those two days back, my daughter would be here,’ he said. ‘All I want is those two days back.’
He said: ‘I hate to say it but two days. If I had those two days back, I’d have went and got her instead of waiting for her to come to me, I’d have went and got her if I knew. She was to come out here to Los Angeles with me.’
He added: ‘The hardest thing I had to do in my life was to tell my daughter to let go.’
He then became unable to control himself, saying as tears streamed down his face: ‘My baby’s gone.’
‘I don’t wish that on my worst enemy. That is the worst pain in the world.’
Brown also addressed allegations of domestic violence against Houston, admitting he did hit her once while on drugs – but insisted he was not a woman beater.
‘I’ve never been a violent man toward a woman ever,’ Brown said.
In addition to the volatile romance which ended in 2006 when Houston filed for divorce, Brown said the couple often indulged in hard drugs together – while their daughter was cared for in a separate part of the house by nannies.
‘I always made it a point to not let her see me or my wife in that type of situation,’ he said. It’s hard when you are doing it every day.’
He claims he is now free of narcotics but still drinks because ‘f*** it, everyone drinks.’
He also shot down allegations that he led Houston into drug abuse.
‘It wasn’t me who started her,’ Brown said. ‘I take my part and I take it hard for me even being a part of it, but we all have our own minds and some of us are stronger than others.’
