Bobby Brown Says He And Whitney Houston 'Cheated On Each Other'

Bobby Brown is getting candid about his headline-grabbing marriage to Whitney Houston.

In an interview set to air Saturday after Lifetime's biopic "Whitney," the R&B singer discusses the low points in his marriage to the late superstar, including the cheating rumors.

"There was infidelity in the marriage, yes, on both parts," Brown admitted to "Access Hollywood" anchor Shaun Robinson. "Both of us cheated on each other -- period. So that's hard to swallow for both of us. I just think when two people that love each other as much as we loved each other, when they start drifting apart, different people come into the situation, into the scenario, and we make mistakes."

"We're human," the 45-year-old singer, who has one daughter with Houston, added.

Brown and Houston's turbulent 15-year marriage -- dogged by allegations of domestic abuse and drug use -- ended in divorce in 2007. Five years later, Houston died at the age of 48.

The focus of Lifetime's new biopic is the early years of the couple's romance, beginning with them meeting at the 1989 Soul Train Awards. First-time director Angela Bassett told the New York Post earlier this month that she ultimately sees the pair's relationship as a "love story," albeit a complicated one.

“We all know how it ends,” Bassett said. “And we all make mistakes. Most of us get to make them in private. Whitney and Bobby had to make them in public.”
