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.

You have a tendency to rest on your laurels when you have lots of free time. A demanding schedule forces you to step up your game. If your energy starts to flag, make time for daily exercise. It seems counterintuitive, but moving your body can actually refresh you. Working with a partner is strongly advised. A collaborator will attend to practical matters.More
