Everyone was losing it as "The Bobby Brown Story" premiered on BET last night. If you haven't watched yet and don't want any spoliers, stop reading now. For the rest of us, let's get into this crazy part 1, plus flicks from the show's screenings inside...


Part 1 of "The Bobby Brown Story" had Twitter abuzz as folks were sharing their unfiltered responses to all of the shenanigans Bobby Brown was involved in back in the day. Like, his alleged "friends with benefits" situationship he had going on with pop star Janet Jackson.

According to Bobby, he and Miss Jackson used to get it in, real raunchy like, in hotel rooms in the late 80s - while in a relationship with singer James DeBarge. Let him tell it, he even kicked her out of his hotel room once after having sex.

He also alleged Janet never wanted to go public with their "relationship" because he was black. The film alluded Janet didn't want anyone to know about their relationship because it would upset her father.

If you read Bobby's memoir, he mentioned being involved with Janet, but we assume seeing it on television brings it to life in a different way. Also, we still don't know if it's entirely true as Janet has never confirmed this.

Here's how Twitter reacted:









As for the other tea that had folks talking...

People were shocked to learn that Bobby's current wife Alicia Etheredge Brown has been around - and in his life - since the 90s. Bobby and Alicia tied the knot in 2012, four months after Whitney's death. She was introduced to Bobby as producer Teddy Riley's girlfriend.

In one scene from Part 1, Alicia is in the bathroom with Bobby, encouraging him to go on with his wedding to Whitney Houston when he got cold feet. Peep viewers' reactions below:









A mess.

Another shocker was the fact that, in the movie, Bobby didn't find out Whitney's drug use until their wedding day. Folks weren't buying it:



Part 2 comes on tonight and we can't wait.
