On Wednesday, the “Today Show” began airing Matt Lauer’s interview with Bobby Brown, the first time Brown has opened up since the death of his ex-wife Whitney Houston.
Brown defends himself during the sit-down, saying that accusations Houston’s downward spiral could be attributed to his presence in her life are not true.
He maintains, “I’m not the reason she’s gone.”
Brown recounts seeing Houston a week before her death, calling their daughter Bobbi Kristina upon hearing the tragic news, and talks about whether he could have done more to prevent Houston from dying.

“Maybe I could have done something different to ensure that she had a longer life… but you have to want it, you know,” says Brown. “Some things just happen. God probably just needed her for the choir up there in heaven.”
