Although they shared a tumultuous relationship, you can't think of Whitney Houston without Bobby Brown. As the singer tragically passed earlier today, February 11, Bobby was stricken with the sad news along with the rest of the world. TMZ has more on his reaction...
Bobby Brown is distraught and "in and out of crying fits" ... after getting the news that Whitney Houston is dead -- but his New Edition band mates are by his side trying to console him.
New Edition has a concert tonight in Mississippi -- and believe it or not sources close to the group tell TMZ ... not only will New Edition go on as scheduled, but as of now Bobby is also planning to perform.
We're told Bobby is going to try to get through the entire show.
Bobby and Whitney had an infamously tumultuous 15 year marriage.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to Whitney Houston's friends and family during this tragic time. The music industry wouldn't be the same without her.
