Being Bobby Brown is no easy task, and soon viewers will get a better understanding of just how hard it is. Known for being a part of Boston’s own R&B teen sensation singing group New Edition, the husband of the late Whitney Houston, and living a reckless lifestyle, the public is about to learn why tumultuousness seeped into his very being. It all goes back to childhood and premiering this month, A&E will feature two series centered around the My Prerogative singer’s early life up until the present.

Bobby Brown has recently revealed that a priest had molested him as a kid. After his mother was arrested and beaten as she tried to break up a fight on their street and while his father was at work, he was taken into temporary custody by social services to a supposedly “religious” place where, as Brown recounts, a priest tried to touch him where he shouldn’t, but he kicked and punched the man until he got away. The 53-year-old stated that although he was a young boy who didn’t know about sexual boundaries, he knew he did not want to be touched like that. He also recalls, during the documentary interview, witnessing the stabbing death of his best friend over a bicycle at age 12 and watching his friend look him in the eye as he passed away. The singer adds that he often dreams of his late son and late daughter.
