No matter how much you may dislike BB, have some sympathy. He's lost both his parents this year.

My prayers and condolences go out to Bobby and his entire family. This has to be the toughest year for him. He lost his mom in January.

Love you Bobby, I pray for healing for your family

I feel bad about the loss of (almost) anyone, but this is really a stretch TMZ. It has been 20 years since Bobby Brown has been relevant for his singing ability and at least 5 years since his time in the tabloids because of Whitney.

My condolences to Bobby Brown. And yes, that's a really shameful, sensational headline.

Very misleading tmz I thought I was the only one who thought for a second you all were saying bobby himself died. The title should read as I'm sure you should know considering "your a lawyer" bobby browns dad, or father has died. But no sense in beating a dead horse it's already been said many times. My condolence goes out to the entire Brown family

Bobby Brown dad dies? Let's see...Bobby Brown as we all know is a dad....follow me.....Bobby Brown who is a dad is dead.

Is this the wordplay you were going for as you snickered to yourselves writing the deliberately confusing headline??

How many people around the country glance at your headline and go off telling others that Bobby Brown died because of this..

You have very little credibility in relaying actual news anyways so I guess it's par for the course..

Wow! A bunch of idiots! His Mom died right after Christmas and his Dad just before. Have a little sympathy. Some of you really need to rot in hell. And as for this being news worthy, the same idiots complaining that this isn't news worthy took the time to click the link, read the post AND comment. Shut the hell up. Thanks TMZ for providing us with information day after day. No, I didn't like how the title was written but it's no big deal. RIP Popps.

TMZ is desperate. First off they make it appear as if Bobby Brown died, which in and of itself is irrelevant but then to make matters worse...it's his father, which to the world is a nobody. TMZ IS THEE JOKE OF THE MEDIA!
