Bobby Brown has spoken openly about the child abuse he suffered which he says changed the course of his life.

A new documentary called Biography: Bobby Brown chronicles the R&B singer’s rise to fame, struggles with substance abuse, his marriage to Whitney Houston, and other traumas.

In the series, Brown recounts a terrifying childhood anecdote that happened after he was “sent by social services to a temporary detention facility that was supposed to be a religious location.”

Brown said: “One of the priests tried to molest me. He tried to touch my privates. I was a little boy then. I didn’t know what sexual boundaries were. All I knew was that I didn’t like being touched. Some things are hard to forget.”

In a new interview with People Ahead of the premiere of the two-part series, the “My Prerogative” singer addressed the impact the abuse had on his life.

“That really, really bothered me as a kid and as an adult,” Brown said.

“I think part of the reason I was doing things, other things, drugs, alcohol, was that I was abusing myself.”

While the star said he didn’t plan on revealing such a painful memory, he added that talking about it “helped me get over a lot of other things that bothered me, especially that.”

Biography: Bobby Brown premieres May 30 on A&E in the US.
