New Edition frontman Bobby Brown had plenty to say about his love life as the ex-husband of Whitney Houston divulged details of his personal life.
The singer, whose memoir Every Little Step: My Story which came out on Monday, shared about his past relationship with Madonna and Janet Jackson. He also revealed how Houston encouraged him to be promiscuous right before they were married.
In an interview published on Us Weekly, Bobby Brown claimed that he and the “Material Girl” singer “met through mutual friends.” He shared that one of his friends was dating Madonna’s dancer, who reportedly told his friend that Madonna wanted to meet him.

“We ended up going down to the studio and the next thing I know, there was some strange things happening to me,” he said.
When Bobby Brown was prodded to elaborate further, he gave a laugh and said, “Madonna is really forceful. When she wants something, she’ll take it.”

The singer even said that his sexual encounter with the now 57-year-old pop diva was “kind of weird, but you know, memorable.”
Meanwhile, Bobby Brown said that it was he who ended things with Janet Jackson after Michael Jackson’s sister seemed undecided about her love for him. The pair dated quietly back in the mid-1980s while the Together Again singer was in a relationship with Rene Elizondo Jr.
Janet and Elizondo would eventually secretly get married. The estranged couple has since divorced in the year 2000. The King of Pop’s sibling, 50, is now expecting her first child.
“I fell in love with [Janet] when she was Penny on Good Times,” shared Brown. “It goes back that far, you know, my infatuation with her.”
“She loved me but wasn’t in love with me,” Brown said.
The biggest blow, however, came when Janet said, “My father won’t allow me to be with a black man.” It was at this point that Bobby Brown said he kicked her out of the hotel room they shared as they were “lying in bed after having sex.”
“I exploded and I threw her out,” Bobby Brown wrote in his book.

He also echoed the same sentiment when he visited the Steve Harvey Show this week, The YBF reported.
Bobby Brown also talked about the late Houston, who was the mother of his late daughter, Bobbi Kristina. In an article published on Daily News, it was said that it was the “Greatest Love of All” singer who encouraged him to be as wild as he could be before they got married.
The New Edition frontman was only 23 at the time, and his ex-wife said she wanted him to go on and get the “partying and f—–g around out of my system” before they tied the knot.
“To put it mildly, I went buck f—-n’ wild,” he writes. “My thinking was, get as much as you can while you can.”
However, he was far from being a virgin when his sexual encounters happened. He said that when he was only 14, he was arrested for driving without a license. He was then brought to the women’s jail, as the authorities thought it was a safer place for him given his age.
Nevertheless, he met a friend of his sister, and they “found a hidden corner of the facility and had sex.”
Bobby Brown also delved into Houston’s love life, as he claimed that she and Tupac Shakur had a relationship. He also said that the mother of his child got romantic with women. According to Extra, the New Edition frontman wrote in his memoir about his ex-wife’s relationship with her former assistant, Robyn Crawford.
Brown revealed in his memoir that he believes that had Houston’s family approved of Houston’s relationship with her, she would have been still alive today.

In 2013, Houston’s mother Cissy shared to Oprah Winfrey that she would be “absolutely” bothered if her daughter was a lesbian.
