Bobby Brown is seeking treatment for his own addictions. The former New Edition singer, who was arrested in March on a DUI, is currently in a rehab center, his new wife confirms: “He’s doing great,” Alicia Etheredge tells RadarOnline. Although a source tells the site that Brown, 43, is getting help for an alcohol addiction, his wife of just two months wouldn’t confirm those details.
In May, the “My Prerogative” singer admitted he still drank in a “Today show” interview with Matt Lauer. “I’m not allowed to drink for the next 30 days [per judge’s orders],” he said at the time. “I do have a cocktail occasionally, you know. I will again, I know that. But I’m seven years clean from narcotics. You know, I’m living — I’m living the life that I want to live.” In the same interview, Brown also admitted that he “would always be worried” that his 19-year-old daughter with Houston, Bobbi Kristina, would fall into the same addictions as her mother and father. With two parents addicted, Bobbi Kristina has double the curse to fight against that happening.
