Bobby Brown Dispels Death Rumors

Bobby BrownR&B crooner Bobby Brown wants everyone to know that he’s not dead. The former New Edition frontman made a surprise call into Atlanta’s V103 radio station to clear up the rumor. “I’m not dead,” he said. “I couldn’t tell you [where the story started]. I heard about it yesterday and you know, I brushed it off.”

According to reports Brown succumbed to lung cancer earlier this week. Several websites (but of course not ours) ran with the story. Once the news hit Twitter, it all but exploded causing Brown to speak out. “I think that Twitter’s getting out of hand. If they kill me off that soon. I don’t even Twitter but, at the same time, I’m alive, period.”

“People started calling my phone. People started calling me and asking me am I okay,” Brown explained. “If you don’t see me or hear from me, it doesn’t mean I’m dead. I’m just thankful, man. I got everyday to look for.”

In recent years, the 41-year old has run into both personal and financial issues. Aside from his very public break-up from Whitney Houston, the Boston native’s alleged drug use prompted members of New Edition to kick him out of the group. The group has since reconciled and are said to be prepping a new album.
