Been ill of quite a while? Jesus Christ, where do you get your writers from? Very sad but still, it's like reading something a child wrote.

What a rag website TMZ has become "Bobby Brown Dad Dies" instead of Bobby Brown's Dad dies. Got to Hell TMZ!

My first thought was - dang, his dad was old.

Based on the fact that I am older than Bobby Brown, my father was nearly 30 when I was born and he's still only in his early 70's

I bet the only reason they even posted this was because some douche came up with this idea of the misleading title a little while ago and they've just been waiting like vultures for some celebrity's family member to die to use it.

this is relevant because? Bobby Brown himself isn't even relevant.

His dad isn't famous so why is news that a relative of his died? Family members of celebs die all the time, why is this news? They wrote the headline like that so people would read it real quick and think Bobby Brown died. Either they blatantly left out the 's or they are really that retarded.

Whomever wrote this worded it weird on purpose. Bobby BROWN'S Dad Dies would be the correct way. Pickings must be slim on journalism majors now.

No disrespect but it would barely be newsworthy if Bobby Brown himself died. Wow.

Truth    

IT'S NO SECRET THE DUDE WAS GONNA CROAK. HE WAS PICTURED ON A RESPIRATOR FEW MONTHS BACK. WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU SMOKE AND DO WEED ALL YOUR LIFE... SMFH. BOBBY'S MOM DIED 10 MONTHS AGO. THE FUNERAL IS ON YOUTUBE. WHITNEY HOUSTON SANG AT HER FUNERAL (ALSO ON YOUTUBE). ASSUME THAT'S WHY SHE LEFT FOR LA YESTERDAY NITE ACCORDING TO TWEETS. BET SHE GONNA SING AT THAT FUNERAL TOO. #TRUTH!!
