Bobby Brown Jr., the 28-year-old son of singer Bobby Brown, has died, TMZ reported. No cause of death has been released, but foul play is not suspected.

Police said they were called to Brown Jr.’s Encino, California, home on Wednesday afternoon and found him unresponsive.

Brown Jr. was the son of Bobby Brown and Kim Ward, and is his second child to die in their 20s.

Daughter of Bobby Brown Died at 22

The daughter of Bobby Brown and legendary singer Whitney Houston, Bobbi Kristina Brown, died in 2015. She was 22. Friends found her lying face down in a bathtub at her home in Roswell, Georgia, The Guardian said. She had multiple drugs in her system including cocaine, morphine, prescription medication, and alcohol. She survived in a coma for six months before dying of pneumonia, an autopsy report said.

Her boyfriend Nick Gordon was later found civilly negligible in her death in 2016 and ordered to pay $36 million to Brown’s family. He was never criminally charged in the case, however. Gordon died earlier this year of heroin toxicity after struggling for years with drug addiction, CNN said. He was 30.

Whitney Houston met a similar sad fate. She drowned in a bathtub at a Beverly Hills hotel in 2012. An autopsy report said it was an accidental drowning, but heart disease and long-time cocaine abuse were contributing factors, USA Today reported. Bobbi Kristina Brown was buried next to her mother.

Houston and Brown divorced in 2007 after years of a publicly tumultuous marriage.

Houston won two Emmy Awards, six Grammy Awards, 30 Billboard Music Awards, and 22 American Music Awards during her career, TMZ said.

Both Brown Jr. and Bobbi Kristina Brown appeared on the short-lived reality TV show “Being Bobby Brown.” It ran for one season in 2005 on Bravo.
