Who Is Leolah Brown?

Born on August 4, 1964, Leolah Brown’s age is 54. She is singer Bobby Brown’s older sister.

Bobby Brown is an American singer, songwriter, actor, and dancer, who started his career as a member of the R&B group, New Edition.

Leolah Brown is also the sister-in-law of deceased pop star Whitney Houston, who was married to Bobby Brown from 1992 to 2007.

Leolah and Bobby Brown Have a Complicated Relationship

Even though Leolah Brown found some fame as a writer, she appeared in the news because of her complicated and controversial relationship with Bobby Brown and his family.

She was not on good terms with Whitney Houston’s family. So much so, that she was asked to leave Whitney Houston’s funeral because she interrupted Pat Houston’s eulogy.

She Suspects Foul Play was Involved

Brown had publicly discussed Whitney Houston’s personal life several times, including the long-standing rumors that Houston had a child out of wedlock at the age of 16 and gave it up for adoption.

After Houston’s tragic death on February 11, 2012, Brown claimed it was not accidental, and that foul play was involved. She made similar statements when her niece, Bobbi Kristina Brown, died on July 26, 2015 after being in a coma for nearly six months.

Brown claimed that her niece’s boyfriend at that time, Nick Gordon, was responsible for Bobbi Kristina Brown’s death at the young age of 22.

She openly accused Gordon of starving and beating her niece. She even pointed out that Brown’s autopsy report showed that she had several bruises and two missing teeth at the time of her death.

Her Brother Hasn’t Publicly Commented Yet

So far, Bobby Brown has neither publicly confirmed or denied the accusations his older sister made about the deaths of his former wife and daughter.

Leolah Brown is currently estranged from her brother due to the messy relationship she has with his family.
