Years before Bobby Brown began his toxic romance with Whitney Houston, the playboy singer had another torrid love affair with a very surprising star.
In her upcoming memoir, Every Little Step: My Story, Brown claims he cheated on his longtime girlfriend, Kim Ward, with none other than music icon Janet Jackson.
"We were young, horny, and extremely taken with each other," the New Edition bad boy writes of the '80s tryst.
The romance ended when Jackson broke some shocking news as the two lingered in bed at a hotel.
"My father won't allow me to be with a black man," Brown claims the "Control" singer told him, referring to the infamously strict Joe Jackson.
Notorious for his temper, the 47-year-old says he "exploded."
"Cursing the whole time, I pulled her out of bed and pushed her out of the room, naked," he recalls.
Thirty years after the drama, Jackson has settled down with Qatari billionaire husband Wissam Al Mana, 41, and in a shocking turn, the singer is now expecting what is believed to be her first child at nearly 50 years old.
However, Jackson's ex-husband, James DeBarge, recently told Radar that he believes she secretly welcomed a daughter after the couple's split.
As for Brown, the star divorced the late Whitney Houston in 2007, and welcomed daughter Bodhi with wife Alicia Etheridge last July. The same month, his troubled daughter, Bobbi Kristina, died at just 22 after six months in a coma.
