Grammy Award Winning Singer Bobby Brown doesn’t shy away from his difficult upbringing or his once-private struggles with substance abuse. During a recent appearance on his best friend Mike Tyson’s ‘Hotboxin’ podcast, the former New Edition villain opened up about what he claimed to have been close to death at the age of 9 after making a critical culinary mistake.
While reminiscing with Tyson and co-host, former NBA star Matt Barnes, the Boston native claimed he once mistook his mother’s cocaine for flour while frying chicken.
“If you go through the book, [ Every Little Step], there is a story about my mother when I was younger. She used to keep the coke in a plastic bag in the freezer and I thought it was flour… and I didn’t know it was,” the entertainer explained. “I was about 8, 9 years old. I billed myself as cooking for the family,” he added.
Tyson chimed in, “You were the only one who ate, huh,” to which the legendary singer laughed and replied, “I was the only one who ate,” before adding, “I was dead. They had to take me to the hospital.” bring.”
Barnes asked Brown if the chicken was good before his subsequent trip to the ER, and the singer admitted, “The chicken was bomb.” However, the experience wasn’t as enjoyable as the food that was prepared.

Brown previously told the story in his 2016 memoir, Every Little Step, where he related the incident quite vividly, including “the odd pungent smell emanating from the pan” and “feeling weirder with every bite,” such an excerpt from Uproxx.
The “Mr. The ‘Telephone Man’ singer recalled seeing his mother, who ‘first smiled at the thought of her little Bobby making dinner. Then her gaze swept the kitchen as she was hit with the full force of the scene, the smell, the mess, the powder.” Brown said, “She was horrified to realize what I had done. I fried chicken in her cocaine—a radical new addition to the family’s culinary offerings. cocaine chicken.”
