Bobby Brown is mourning the loss of his beloved mom, Carol Brown, who died in Los Angeles on Thursday, RadarOnline.com is reporting.
"It's a sad time for me right now," the singer says.
"I am experiencing a tremendous loss but I vow to celebrate her life in every way that I can with my entire family, including my fiance Alicia, and my children Bobbi Kristina, LaPrincia, Bobby Jr. and Cassius."
Brown always called his mom his "rock," as she stood by him through his battle with drugs, financial woes, arrests, and divorce from Whitney Houston.
He and Houston were married 15 years until their divorce in April, 2007. There's no word yet if she plans to attend her former mother-in-law's funeral in Boston.
