Bobby Brown Checks into Rehab
Bobby Brown’s addiction issues are no secret. For years, the world has been aware of the singer’s struggle with alcohol and hard drugs – issues that some believe he foisted upon late singer Whitney Houston.
Now, Brown has decided to beat his addictions once and for all by checking into a rehab center.
His wife (and former manager), Alicia Etheridge, has confirmed that the singer has sought professional help for his alcohol abuse. Apparently, things are going well.
“He’s doing great,” Etheridge told RadarOnline.
This news comes five months after Brown’s arrest for DUI, which occurred just a month after his ex-wife, Whitney Houston, was found dead of drowning after an apparent cocaine binge.
According to TMZ, a source close to the singer has said that he “decided that he needed help and wants to make the best out of the rest of his life for his children’s sake.”
Here’s hoping that the father of five can beat his addiction – not only to set a good for his children (especially Bobbi Kristina, who some think may be at risk of following the same tragic path as her mother), but for his new wife, and for the memory of Whitney.
