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.
