As the sad and sudden news of Whitney Houston's passing begins to set in, further developments continue to emerge regarding the 48-year-old singer's death and plans to remember her life.
In a brief press conference, Beverly Hills police Lt. Mark Rosen confirmed that the singer died in her room at the Beverly Hilton hotel with police having received a 9-1-1 call from hotel security at 3:43 p.m before she was pronounced dead at 3:55 p.m.
Well, we’ve all heard of someone getting their heart broken. But since his split from Whitney Houston (they’re still embroiled in a bitter divorce/custody dispute) it seems to have happened, literally, to Bobby Brown.
The “My Prerogative” singer was complaining of chest pains Tuesday when he was taken to the hospital. After an exam, it was determined that he had suffered a “mild” heart attack.
While the ink dries on Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown’s divorce papers, Brown is already out dating. The marriage was officially done in April, and Bobby isn’t wasting any time replacing Whitney with a new woman.
"I'm dating, so it's not like I'm single," Brown, 40, told People Magazine at Stereo by the Shore in Southampton, N.Y. on Saturday. When the singer was asked who he was dating, he replied, “My friend,” and looked over at the woman holding his hand.
Not happy with the current situation, Bobby Brown has decided to sue ex-wife Whitney Houston in a California court. The former R&B star is seeking spousal support and changes to the one-sided custody arrangement for their daughter.
Brown - always known to spend more than he brings in - claimed financial and emotional problems prevented him from responding to Houston's divorce petition, People magazine reported on Friday (May 11). Due to his failure to answer Whitney's petition, Bobby lost all custody rights to the couple's daughter.
Talk about a lose-lose situation. A judge recently had to decide the custody of Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown's daughter, Bobbi Christina. While one parent typically stands out in these cases as the proper choice, Whitney and Bobby surely made it tough on the judge.
Not resorting to Option C - Neither, the judge has decided to grant custody rights to Whitney. According to Monsters & Critics, "The 'I Will Always Love You' singer's divorce was approved yesterday (May 4th) by Judge Franz E. Miller in California's Orange County court and will be finalized on April 24."
Bobby Brown's radio gig has come to an abrupt end, with Brown denying his duties and the Washington DC radio station finally rescinding its offer to pay his back child support.
The 38-year-old R&B singer spent three nights in a Massachusetts jail last week for failing to pay child support. He was released after the radio station paid the $19,150 he owed on the condition that Brown appear on "The Kane Show" for a week. He was to discuss the case and how he could turn his life around during studio appearances beginning Monday, according to the SJ Mercury News.
Bobby Brown has been stuck in jail as a result of being broke and unable to pay the $19,000 in back spousal support needed to be released. While family and friends were nowhere to be found, a Washington DC radio station came to the singers aid and sprung him from the slammer.
WIHT-FM said in a statement that the money was paid following a deal that was brokered by morning DJ Kane and Brown's lawyers. E! News said.
Kane says Brown will work at the station for a week beginning Monday, discussing his transgressions on-air and promoting the station at other times.
Singer Bobby Brown was sentenced to 30 days in jail by a Massachusetts judge, unless he pays $19,000 in child support for two of his children in what is the R&B singer's second arrest in the state in less than a year.
Brown, who is in the process of a divorce from Whitney Houston, was arrested on Sunday February 25, while visiting his daughter in Massachusetts.
This past October, an arrest warrant was issued after Brown failed to show up at a hearing on overdue child support for Kim Ward, the mother of two of his children. Brown paid $11,000 in late child support after a judge ruled he would be arrested if he entered Massachusetts without paying what he owed.
