Bobby Brown Goes to Rehab for Alcohol Addiction


New Edition Performs At The Nokia Theatre L.A. Live

Bobby Brown has admitted that he fell off the wagon and that he can’t get back on it without assistance. TMZ has confirmed that the multi-platinum selling singer is in rehab to treat alcohol addiction. The news follows an arrest for a DUI back in March – not long after the death of his ex-wife, Whitney Houston.


TMZ has more:

Sources extremely close to Brown tell TMZ, the former "New Edition" singer admitted himself to the treatment facility very recently — because “he realized he couldn’t do it on his own.”

We’re told he’s being treated for alcohol abuse issues — a problem Brown has openly suffered from for many years.

The source adds, Brown “decided that he needed help and wants to make the best out of the rest of his life for his children’s sake."

Brown was arrested for DUI in March — a month after his ex Whitney Houston died.
