Bobby Brown is starting a 55-day prison term after surrendering to authorities in Los Angeles for a driving under the influence conviction.

The US singer's attorney and a spokesman for the city attorney's office said the ex husband of the late Whitney Houston turned himself in at a Los Angeles courthouse.

He pleaded no contest to DUI and driving on a suspended licence in February. He will also be required to serve four years on informal probation and complete an 18-month alcohol treatment programme after he is released.

The conviction is 44-year-old Brown's second for DUI in less than a year. He avoided jail after pleading no contest to a March 2012 drink-driving case.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Aquarius:

A cherished dream is elusive. It will be best to change gear, at least for the immediate future. Pursue a moneymaking opportunity with creative appeal. Getting paid to exercise your imagination will lift your spirits. By the time you finish this assignment, you may be in better condition to pursue your primary goal. A brilliant idea for operating on a shoestring budget will come. At that point, nothing will stand between you and success. Stay calm and take things one step at a time.More
