A family court judge in Canton, Mass., ordered Brown's arrest after he failed to show up for a hearing over delinquent child support payments.
Being Bobby Brown isn't easy at all. The performer has to face a very difficult times these days. Amidst his legal divorce with wife Whitney Houston, he also is being granted an arrest warrant on Monday October 2nd by a Massachusetts judge. This makes his days even worse.
Judge Paula Carey ordering Brown to be arrested if he steps foot in the state after the star skipped a court hearing over child-support payments to Kim Ward, the mother of his two teenaged children, La Princia and Bobby Jr.. Explaining her client's absence in court, Brown's lawyer, Phaedra Parks, told the judge it was a "very difficult time" for Brown concerning his divorce from Houston.
"It is just a very difficult time for him, as you can well imagine," Phaedra Parks said. "The media is very aware of this very public divorce that is going on right now and it's unfortunate that we find ourselves back in Boston on this matter." Nevertheless, Judge Paula Carey insisted "Whether or not he's going through a divorce doesn't negate the fact that he still owes child support relative to his two children that he had prior to his marriage".
More on the child support payments, Ward claims that Brown currently owes two months' support, or $11,000. As of the arrest warrant, it is the second for Brown in just over a year stemming from the same case.
