It has just been confirmed that Bobby Brown Jr, the son of R&B singer, Bobby Brown, has tragically passed away just 5 years after the death of his half-sister, Bobbi Kristina Brown.

Here's what we know...

He was just twenty-eight-years-old.

Bobby Jr, who was an aspiring musician himself, was found dead at his home in Los Angeles in the early hours of today.

Very quickly, the messages of condolences have been flooding in...

Now, this news couldn't have come at a worst time.

Because, before Bobby Jr's shocking death, the Brown family had already experienced their fair share of loss throughout the last couple of years.

His death comes just 5 years after the passing of his half-sister, Bobbi Kristina Brown.

In January 2015, Bobbi was found face down in the bathtub in her Georgia home – eerily echoing the death of her mother, Whitney Houston, 3 years earlier.

The twenty-two-year-old was placed into a medically induced coma.

But, unfortunately, doctors couldn’t revive her, and she passed away in hospice care 2 years later in June 2015.

And her ex-partner, Nick Gordon, also died at the start of this year.

In the early hours of January 1st, Gordon died after suffering a series of heart attacks, presumably as a result of drug intake.

So, of course, Bobby Jr's death has come as a real blow.

Landon Brown, who is the eldest son of Bobby Sr., confirmed his brother's death in an Instagram post captioned: "I love you forever King."

TMZ was the first to report the news...

But a Los Angeles Police Department spokesperson has since told E! News that authorities responded to a report of a medical emergency on Wednesday, November 18th.

Upon arriving on the scene, the department discovered a dead body...

But they were unable to disclose the identity of the deceased.

His cause of death is yet to be confirmed.

Rest in peace, Bobby Brown Jr. For more on the lives lost this year, keep scrolling...
