Bobby Brown mag | By Suzy Byrne, Yahoo Entertainment, Bobby Brown, in 1986, flexed in more ways than one as a hot, young, teen millionaire. In an exclusive clip from A&E’s Biography: Bobby Brown, the singer talks about spending $1 million in a day just because he could. He’d stop strangers on the street to buy their cars and once bought a store because he didn’t like the shopkeeper.

In A&E’s Biography: Bobby Brown, which premieres Monday, the singer details the windfall of cash he received after parting ways with New Edition and hitting big with his Don’t Be Cruel solo album, featuring hits “My Prerogative” and “Every Little Step.” Growing up with little, he was suddenly flush at 18 — and spent frivolously.

“Money was ginormous,” Brown says in a clip shared exclusively with Yahoo Entertainment. “I was bringing in so much money at such a young age. My dad didn’t have to work anymore. My mom didn’t have to work anymore.”

But beyond providing for loved ones, Brown — who became a millionaire at 18 — was just wildly throwing money around.
