Bobby Brown: 'My Story Needs to Be Told'

In his new tell-all book, Bobby Brown says many of his troubles came out of his marriage to Whitney Houston - but as he told PEOPLE Thursday night: "My story needs to be told."

"I was married to a woman everybody knows for 14 years and we had a great marriage," he said at the premiere of MTV's new reality rock show, Rock the Cradle, which features his eldest son Landon Brown. "Suddenly it abruptly ended and I don't know why, but it did."

Brown, 39, split with Houston, 44, in 2006. The couple has one daughter together, 15-year-old Bobbi Kristina. The divorce was finalized in April 2007.

Houston spoke out on Thursday saying, "Miss Houston is sad that Bobby feels he need to say such things but she chooses to take the high road and will not speak badly about the father of her child even if it's to set the record straight."

But beyond his book, Brown says there will be no more dirt about his ex. "Me and Whitney are divorced. There is nothing I have to discuss with her anymore. I don't have anything bad to say about her. She should have no worries."

Bobby Brown: 'I Died Three Times'

Bobby Brown, the R&B pop star and Whitney Houston's drug-addicted ex-husband, died three times and had to be resuscitated.

That's just one of the revelations in the autobiography he's self-publishing on May 13 with distributor Atlas Books of Ohio. "Being Bobby Brown: The Truth, the Whole Truth and Nothing But..." is co-written with Derrick Handspike, whom I spoke to Thursday night.

On Thursday press reports touched on a few items from Brown's memoirs, but there's a lot more.

What's the incentive at this point to sell out Whitney, daughter Bobbi Kristina and even himself? As Handspike - an Atlanta hip-hop producer and author of several books - explained: "We are very wealthy from this already."

It's not completely clear how the pair has made so much from a vanity press publication, but Handspike intimated that there are "investors." "It's a joint-venture kind of thing," he said.

For her part, Whitney, says rep Nancy Seltzer, refuses to comment now and forever on the book. "She's not going to talk about the father of her child."

But starting soon, Bobby's going to be talking. His press reps are approaching all the shows and made an inquiry to Oprah. The angle is gong to be that this is Brown's way of telling his story, and that there's very little about Whitney - at least not enough for which to sue him.

"He OD's on heroin," Handspike told me. "No one knows that. He had a stroke. They said he had a heart attack but he had a stroke."

And then there are the three deaths. Brown relates that his heart stopped three times and he had to be revived with paddles.

Brown also owns up, Handspike tells me, to hitting Houston. "He considered it horse play. The reason Whitney called the police was that he laughed at her and then left. She said, 'You think you're going to just walk away from this?' Then she called the police."

In the book, much is learned about Brown that you may or may not be interested in. He "scored" with Janet Jackson. He also immediately hit it off with Whitney in a physical way.

"We also had bedroom chemistry." He isn't modest, either. "I've always been known to be a pretty good lover. The word on the street is that I’m well-endowed, if that means anything. Does it, ladies?"

More on Monday. It's worth the wait...

The Confessions of Bobby Brown

April 3, 2008 -- WITH an ex-husband like Bobby Brown, Whitney Houston doesn't need enemies.

In his upcoming autobiography, Brown blows the lid on his wildly dysfunctional marriage to the troubled, Grammy-winning diva, suggesting that she drove him into a nightmare of drug addiction.

"I never used cocaine until after I met Whitney. Before then, I had experimented with other drugs, but marijuana was my drug of choice," Brown writes in "Bobby Brown: The Truth, the Whole Truth and Nothing But," out next month. "At one point in my life, I used drugs uncontrollably. I was using everything I could get my hands on, from cocaine to heroin, weed and cooked cocaine."

As far as his 15-year marriage to Houston is concerned, it "was doomed from the very beginning. Within the first year we separated, with several more to follow," Brown writes. "I think we got married for all the wrong reasons. Now, I realize Whitney had a different agenda than I did when we got married . . . I believe her agenda was to clean up her image, while mine was to be loved and have children."

Whitney, he alleges, had been under "a lot of pressure. The media was accusing her of having a bisexual relationship with her assistant, Robin Crawford. Since she was the American Sweetheart and all, that didn't go too well with her image ... In Whitney's situation, the only solution was to get married and have kids. That would kill all speculation, whether it was true or not. In the short, I think I got caught up in the politics and ended up marrying one of the biggest stars in the world."

But Brown notes that he was no saint in their relationship, confessing in his book, "I am guilty of sleeping with other women ... Women are always throwing themselves at you. I'm only human, so I would make the mistake and bite the hook sometimes ... I let the testosterone take over."

One of his most public indiscretions was an affair with former exotic dancer Karrine "Superhead" Steffans. "Yes, I've slept with her," he confesses. "Yes, I've spent several nights at her house. But she was only good for what her nickname stood for."

Reps for Houston, who divorced Brown a year ago, did not return our call for comment.
