After years of clean living, it seemed like Bobby Brown had finally quits his addictions. But after a DUI arrest in March, just one month after his ex-wife, Whitney Houston’s death, it has now been revealed that Brown has checked himself into a rehab center for alcohol addiction.
According to TMZ, sources close to the oft-troubled singer say that he checked himself into a rehab center very recently because “he realized he couldn’t do it on his own.”
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’s wife, Alicia Etheridge, confirmed her husband’s rehab stint with RadarOnline, telling the site that Brown is “doing great.”
The article also claims that Brown went into a treatment facility at the urging of his New Edition band mates, who became increasingly concerned about his drinking habits.
Hopefully, Brown’s latest stint in rehab will mark the end of his addiction problems and he won’t follow down the tragic path of his ex-wife, Houston. We wish him the best in treatment.
And Brown isn’t the only star who’s dealt with an addiction problem. Check out some other stars that have been in rehab below. – nicholas robinson
