Bobby Brown drink-drive jail term

Bobby Brown

Singer Bobby Brown has been sentenced to 55 days in a Los Angeles jail and four years of probation for drink-driving.

City attorney's spokesman Frank Mateljan said the former husband of singer Whitney Houston was sentenced after pleading no contest to being under the influence and driving on a suspended licence when he was arrested in October.

Brown was on probation for another drink-drive case at the time.

The 44-year-old New Edition singer was ordered to report to jail on March 20, placed on four years of informal probation and must complete an 18-month alcohol treatment programme.

Brown's lawyer Tiffany Feder had no immediate comment on the sentence.

Houston, 48, who battled drug addiction, drowned in a Beverly Hills hotel bath last February. She was married to Brown for 15 years.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

A close relationship could reach a rocky patch. Resist the urge to emotionally withdraw from your loved one. Be willing to address the issues that have been pulling you apart. You could hear some painful things about your behaviour. Instead of getting defensive, be open to changing for the sake of your relationship. Think back to a time when someone you loved worked hard to gain your affection and approval. Pattern your attitude after theirs. Being flexible is more important than being right.More
