Singer Brown checks into rehab
Bobby Brown has checked himself into rehab, it has been confirmed.
The US star's representative said that the singer checked into a "confidential rehabilitation centre" last week as part of an agreement following his March arrest for drink-driving in Los Angeles.
His publicist said that Bobby's plea agreement in the case requires that he get treatment for alcohol use.
His lawyer Christopher Brown said in a statement that the star "takes his agreement very seriously".
The 43-year-old singer is the former husband of Whitney Houston, who died this year.
He married his manager Alicia Etheredge-Brown in June.
Bobby still plans to perform scheduled solo concerts and tour with his group New Edition.
His first new album for 14 years came out this summer.
