Bobby Brown’s Past Relationship With Janet Jackson Shocks Black Twitter

Part 1 of BET’s The Bobby Brown Story aired last night, picking up where the network’s 2017 New Edition miniseries left off. This time around, Brown’s 2016 memoir, Every Little Step, was the basis for the film, which included a revelation many of the singer’s die-hard fans weren’t even aware of.

Viewers’ minds were completely blown when it was revealed that the “King of R&B” had dated pop superstar Janet Jackson. The pair allegedly had a physical relationship that Jackson refused to explore further, telling Brown that she loved him but wasn’t in love with him. The movie also alluded to her choosing not to date Black men because her father, Joe Jackson, told her not to.

This was completely new information to much of Black Twitter, who took to the social media site to share their disbelief. See some of the best tweets below.
