Bobby Brown is dropping more than a few bombs in his new memoir, Every Little Step, including a claim that his late wife and singing legend Whitney Houston had an affair with hip-hop icon Tupac Shakur.

"[Brown] contends that [Houston] did her 'share of cheating' with 'quite a few of the producers and artists' she worked with, and names one ex-lover, the late Tupac Shakur," The Associated Press, who received an early copy of the book, explained in a review.

The Associated Press did not share other details about the affair, but revealed Brown doesn't hold back in the memoir when it comes to his own behavior over the course of his life, including "many sexual affairs, with Janet Jackson and Madonna...his drug problems, which he says are now behind him, and his encounters with the law."

Brown also refutes claims that he was the one who got Houston hooked on cocaine and says she used the drug before he did. The sentiment is similar to the one Brown shared in his recent 20/20 interview with Robin Roberts where he also discussed the tragic death of their daughter. Bobbi Kristina passed away in July of 2015 after being found face down in a tub with an autopsy later confirming her cause of death to be a combination of drowning and drug intoxication. Brown told Roberts he blames her death on himself and Bobbi's former boyfriend, Nick Gordon.

Of course, during that interview Brown also admitted to once having sex with a ghost, so there's that.

Brown's memoir also includes testimonials from collaborators and friends including New Edition's Ralph Tresvant and Kenneth "Babyface" Edmonds. Clearly, the book is not short of revelations and we can only imagine what else Brown has written in his memoir. Every Little Step will be available June 13.
