Bobby Brown will not accept the theory that he is responsible for his ex-wife Whitney Houston's death. Nor does he believe he is the one who got the music legend hooked on drugs.
"Not true," the R&B singer, 43, tells Matt Lauer in a Today show interview Tuesday, Brown's first since the Feb. 11 death of Houston. "I didn't get high [on narcotics] before I met Whitney. I smoked weed, I drank the beer, but no, I wasn't the one that got Whitney on drugs at all."
Brown insists drugs were already part of Houston's life "way before" their relationship. "It's just unexplainable how one could, you know, [claim that I] got her addicted to drugs. I'm not the reason she's gone."

Bobbi Kristina Brown is already following in her famous parents' footsteps.
The daughter of the late Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown has been cast in a recurring role in Tyler Perry's show For Better or Worse, a source confirms to PEOPLE.
No details of the role are available, but the show shoots in Atlanta, where all of Perry's shows are produced and where Bobbi Kristina lives.
Bobbi Kristina, 19, has said she wants to be an entertainer. "I have to carry on the legacy," she told Oprah Winfrey earlier this month. "We're going to do the singing thing. Some acting, some dancing."

The statement continues: "Mr. Brown has not been convicted of anything associated with this incident. Mr. Brown is taking this matter seriously and an investigation is underway. The legal process shall run its course."

Just days after the coroner's announcement that Whitney Houston died of accidental drowning, her ex-husband Bobby Brown was arrested for driving under the influence.
Brown, 43, was pulled over at 12:20 p.m. Monday in the San Fernando Valley for talking on his cell phone, and then failed a field sobriety test, says California Highway Patrol Officer Mike Harris.
The R&B singer was released on his own recognizance about two hours later from the Van Nuys police station jail, a Los Angeles Police Department spokesperson says.

Whitney Houston's 19-year-old daughter, Bobbi Kristina, will inherit everything from the late singer's estate, based on instructions in Houston's will.
Houston's ex-husband, Bobby Brown, the father of Bobbi Kristina, gets nothing.
Houston, who died last month at age 48, left all of her money, property, clothing and personal effects to her only child, according to the document dated and signed in 1993, the year Bobbi Kristina was born.

After breaking down at her mother Whitney Houston's funeral, Bobbi Kristina has been with her family on the East Coast, according to Houston's godmother Darlene Love.
"She was with the family the whole time," Love tells Access Hollywood.
"We all went to a restaurant we call after a funeral or home celebration, a repast, where everybody goes and sits and talks and eats. She was there, she was there yesterday, she's been with the family these last couple of days."

Saturday was an exceptionally long day for Bobby Brown.
The singer appeared at his ex-wife Whitney Houston's funeral for a short time early in the day. Later, he took a private jet from New Jersey to Connecticut to perform at the Mohegan Sun casino's arena with his longtime, on-and-off band New Edition, according to a rep for the casino.
The show – which lasted more than an hour and included hits such as "Candy Girl," "Mr. Telephone Man," "Tenderoni" and "My Prerogative" – featured some emotional moments for Brown.

Whitney Houston's funeral was as emotional as it appeared to those watching online, one mourner who attended tells PEOPLE.
"It was really beautiful … a lot of people were crying," says Denise Council, who attended the ceremony at New Hope Baptist Church in Newark, N.J.
Council – who met Whitney years ago and whose husband went to school with the late singer – kept an eye on Houston's daughter during the ceremony.
"Bobbi Kristina broke down, but she was good," says Council. "She was up in the first row ... and [did] pretty good, all considering. [Whitney's mother] Cissy was wonderful."

As fans, friends and family members honored the late Whitney Houston Saturday, rumors swirled about the man who wasn't in attendance at the singer's funeral: her ex-husband, Bobby Brown.
But buzz that he was turned away from Newark, N.J.'s New Hope Baptist Church isn't true, Brown tells PEOPLE in a statement, and his absence was the result of a mix-up with security.
"My children and I were invited to the funeral of my ex-wife Whitney Houston," Brown, 43, says. "We were seated by security and then subsequently asked to move on three separate occasions. I fail to understand why security treated my family this way and continue to ask us to move."

Did Bobby Brown attend his late wife's funeral after all?
His presence (or lack thereof) was debated Saturday, with conflicting reports surfacing about his whereabouts. Despite talk that he'd be in attendance to support his family, a source says Bobby Brown was turned away from Whitney Houston's funeral.
"Bobby was outside the church," a source at Newark, N.J.'s New Hope Baptist Church tells PEOPLE. "He hugged his brother and then got in a car, and they drove him off."
Adds the source: "They wouldn't allow him in." Brown's management disputes those reports, and HLN shared a different account.
