*Anna Reed, the girlfriend Bobby Brown Jr., posted a tribute to him on social media a day after news of his death.
We previously reported, Brown Jr., the son singer Bobby Brown, was found dead at the age of 28, according to TMZ. He was the half sibling to Bobbi Kristina Brown, the daughter of Brown Sr. and late singer Whitney Houston.
Like her mother, Bobbi Kristina died after being found unconscious in a bathtub.
Police found Brown Jr. after being called to his home for a “medical emergency,” BBC reports.
Reed wrote on her Twitter page: “The heavens gained an angel but I lost my soul mate.”

Here’s more via TMZ:
A source close to the family tells TMZ Bobby Jr. was found dead Wednesday in his home in the L.A. area. Police are still at the home, and our sources tell us, at this point, they do not believe there was foul play involved.Bobby Jr. was the half-brother of Bobby’s daughter with Whitney Houston, Bobbi Kristina, who died back in 2015 when she was just 22 years old after being found lifeless in a bathtub. The coroner determined she had drowned in the tub, but had toxic levels of cocaine and alcohol in her system.
Jr. is one of Bobby’s seven children. His mother is Kim Ward, who Bobby dated off and on for 11 years before getting engaged to Whitney.
Bobby Jr. and Reed often expressed their love each other on social media.
Hours before he died, he wrote, “If me and my girl can’t hit, I’m not hitting.”
He also referred to Reed as “Wifey” in a November 15 post — see below.

In another post on November 15, he wrote to Reed, “Hey @AnnaReed1998 I LOVE YOU.”
On November 17, Reed wrote, “Overdose is a lesson, if you ain’t learn then you lethal,” but it’s not clear what she was referring to.
