Bobby Brown Back in Rehab For Alcohol Abuse

Whitney Houston's former partner has reportedly been admitted to rehab for alcohol abuse.

Singer Bobby Brown has reportedly returned to rehab and is undergoing treatment for alcohol abuse, less than two months after his second marriage.

Bobby Brown is the man widely credited with introducing his former wife, the late Whitney Houston, to hard drugs.

But even after Whitney’s death in February, which was related to her cocaine use, Brown continued his own long history of drug and alcohol abuse.

The 43-year-old is “once again undergoing treatment for his addiction issues,” reports TMZ.

Brown’s wife of less than two months, Alicia Etheridge, told the website her new husband was “doing great”.

His wife would not confirm the particulars of his rehab treatment.

Brown was arrested for driving under the influence on March 26th, after being pulled over for allegedly using a mobile phone when driving.

The singer began his career as frontman to the pop group, New Edition.

He started a solo career after leaving the band in 1986 and had a hit with the tune, ‘My Prerogative’.

But it was Brown’s much-publicised romance and marriage to Whitney Houston in the early 90s that gave him a much bigger profile.

Their relationship was plagued with rumours of Brown’s infidelity and the couple’s frequent hard drug use. Brown had several run-ins with the law, including some jail time.

Following fourteen years of marriage, the couple filed for legal separation in September 2006. Brown began a relationship with Etheridge the following year and the pair married in Hawaii in June.
