You guys at TMZ should learn to write. The headline should read, Bobby Brown's dad dies; not Bobby Brown dad dies. But I know you wanted pple to think BB died. Hey Harvey, try paying for writing classes for your ah... "journalist".

Yup... it took me a few seconds to realize that the title wasn't saying Bobby Brown had died.

What kind of report is that? Who cares about this? This site is turning into a joke.. Make us all believe Bobby Brown died is shoddy journalism and makes you look desperate.

Why would you make it appear as if Bobby Brown had died, seriously, had to re read the headline a couple times!

I looked at the headline really fast and thought it said Bobby had died. Anyway, I remember his father from Bobby's reality show. My prayers go out to the family.

No offense, but people's parents die all the time, he was not famous for anything except being his father, so why is this news? Is the news so slow that a famous person's dad is big news?

Condolences to the family - however the title should reflect: Bobby Brown's father died.

Condolences to the family. However, this isn't entertainment news. So he was on "Being Bobby Brown". Can you find me somebody who actually watched that show? I've never even heard of it, and I watch A LOT of TV.
