The ex-husband of the late Whitney Houston is reportedly considering to check into rehab after being arrested for second DUI this year.
Bobby Brown seemingly realizes that he needs help to get sober. Following his second DUI arrest in seven months, the R&B singer/songwriter is said to be considering to head back into rehab and undergo treatment for his drinking problem.
The father of Whitney Houston's daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown had entered rehab earlier this year, but reportedly didn't take it very seriously because he was in denial that he's an alcohol abuser. It was in contrary to what his lawyer Christopher Brown said at the time, "Mr. Brown takes his agreement very seriously and admitted himself three weeks after concluding his honeymoon in Mexico during a break from the New Edition tour."
His friends support the idea of him checking back into rehab, but they don't want to push him too hard and let the 43-year-old star make the decision himself, so TMZ reports. So far, no decision has been made about the alleged plans.
Bobby developed an alcoholism at an early age. In March this year, he was arrested for DUI after being pulled over at the corner of Victory and Wilbur in San Fernando Valley for talking on his cell phone.
Recently, on Wednesday, October 24 morning, the husband of music executive Alicia Etheridge was arrested for the same case when he was flagged four miles from his Encino house. "He was pulled over for a traffic violation and based on the officer's observations, he was arrested and booked for driving under the influence," Sgt. Pablo Monterrosa of the Los Angeles Police Department told the Daily News.
Later on October 25, Bobby was charged with multiple misdemeanors in connection to his DUI arrest. He was charged for driving under the influence with a prior and refusing to take a chemical test, driving on a restricted license due to alcohol/drugs and operating a vehicle without a required ignition interlock device, said a spokesman for the Los Angeles city attorney's office, Frank Mateljan.
