Bobby Brown is recovering well in rehab.
The 43-year-old singer entered an undisclosed facility last week and his lawyer has now revealed he agreed to seek help as part of a deal struck following his arrest for driving under the influence (DUI) in March.
"'Mr. Brown takes his agreement very seriously and admitted himself three weeks after concluding his honeymoon in Mexico during a break from the New Edition tour. Bobby is doing well and receiving services that comply with his agreement with the State of California," his attorney Christopher Brown said in a statement.
Bobby's new wife Alicia Etheredge said she and the singer's children - three-year-old Cassius from their relationship, 19-year-old Bobbi Kristina with late ex-wife Whitney Houston, and Landon, 23, La'Princia, 22, and Bobby Jr., 19, with previous partners - are "proud" of him for seeking help.
Bobby Brown has entered rehab.
The 43-year-old singer - who was arrested for driving under the influence (DUI) in March - is receiving treatment for addiction problems and his wife Alicia Etheredge says he is doing well. Confirming he has gone to rehab, she added to RadarOnline.com, "He's doing great."
Alicia - who married the New Edition star two months ago - refused to say exactly what Bobby is being treated for, but sources told the gossip website he is seeking help for alcohol addiction. It is unclear where the star is receiving treatment.
The news comes after the "Two Can Play That Game" hitmaker recently insisted he didn't introduce ex-wife Whitney Houston - who died in February after suffering a heart attack partly brought on by her cocaine abuse - to drugs and felt "hurt" by such claims as he has been sober for a long time.
Bobbi Kristina Houston did not attend Bobby Brown's wedding "because she did not like his partner."
The 19-year-old daughter of the singer and his late ex-wife Whitney Houston, missed the June 18 nuptials to Alicia Etheridge.
"Bobby Brown was desperate for her to go to his recent wedding, but she would not return his calls. Bobby got a go-between to contact Bobbi Kristina to try and persuade her, but she told them she was not going because she did not like Alicia, and that she was [busy] filming her reality show with [aunt] Pat Houston in New York," a source told US Weekly.
The source added that Bobbi Kristina's aunt Pat - Whitney's sister - is doing her best to pose as a parental figure. "She's trying to act like a mother figure. Pat does not like Bobby Brown and was pleased that Bobbi Kristina did not go to the wedding, as she feels that her father will always try and take advantage of her," the insider added.
Bobby Brown has gotten married to his fiancee Alicia Etheridge.
The happy couple tied the knot on Monday in front of family and close friends in Hawaii less than 24 hours after he performed at a New Edition concert in Honolulu.
The pair's three-year-old son Cassius acted as a ring bearer and he and his dad wore matching red suits and Adidas trainers. Bobby's older children Landon, 23, La'Princia, 22, and Bobby Jr., 19, were all in attendance but 19-year-old Bobbi Kristina - his daughter with late ex-wife Whitney Houston - was not present.
Alicia looked stunning in an elegant cream bridal dress and wore her hair down for her big day, and Bobby posted a photo of himself and his new bride surrounded by his children on Instagram.
Bobby Brown trusts his daughter Bobbi Kristina not to make the same mistakes he did.
The "My Prerogative" singer and Bobbi's late mother Whitney Houston have both struggled with drug addiction and although the 19-year-old starlet has been forced to deny rumors she has also been abusing illegal drugs, Brown believes she is "smart enough" not to follow in his footsteps.
"Any parent that has a teenager in their life, they go through things. They go through phases that they might not be doing exactly what you want them to do in life, but they grow out of it, and my baby girl has grown out of it. I trust and believe that she's smart enough to not go down the same road that maybe I did in the past or her mother did in the past. She's extremely smart," he told MTV.
Bobbi is focusing on launching an acting and music career since her mother died of accidental drowning caused by cardiac failure after taking cocaine in February and her dad is extremely proud of his daughter: "That's my baby girl. She'll forever be my baby girl. She's doing what she's doing, and I'm extremely proud of her. She's acting and she's working on music and she's doing what she has to do to recover from her loss - our loss."
Bobby Brown will marry in Hawaii on the weekend of June 15th. The New Edition musician and his fiancee Alicia Etheridge - who have been engaged for two years and have a son Cassius, who will turn three later this month - will tie the knot in Honolulu on the same weekend he performs on the island with his band.
According to gossip website TMZ, Bobby will also fly out some of his family and friends to witness the ceremony he has dubbed his "big day."
It is doubtful whether his estranged daughter Bobbi Kristina, 19 - his only child with former wife Whitney Houston - will attend.
Although Bobby has been engaged to Alicia for two years, it was recently claimed he and Whitney - who died in a Beverly Hills hotel room in February - had been planning to remarry in an intimate ceremony in Las Vegas with Bobbi Kristina as their only witness.
Bobby Brown had no idea Whitney Houston was taking drugs before she died.
The 48-year-old singer died in Beverly Hills in February from accidental drowning caused by cocaine use and heart failure, and although her former husband Bobby has been widely blamed for introducing her to illegal substances, he claims he has been clean for seven years and was shocked to discover Whitney was still taking drugs.
"It's just unexplainable .. how one could, you know, (say that I) got her addicted to drugs. I'm not the reason she's gone. I was hurt. I was hurt ... because, you know, me being off of narcotics for the last seven years, I felt that she was, you know, I didn't know she was struggling with it still. But at the same time, you know, listen, it's a hard fight. It's a hard fight to, you know, maintain sobriety that way," he told Today's Matt Lauer.
It was claimed after Whitney's death that she and Bobby had been planning to remarry in Las Vegas. Whitney had apparently wanted to reunite with her former husband of 14 years and the pair had decided on an intimate ceremony with their daughter Bobbi Kristina as the only witness.
Bobby Brown will not face any additional jail time for his arrest for Driving under the Influence (DUI) last month.
The singer was initially arrested in March after police noticed he was driving while on his cell phone in California's San Fernando Valley, but after pleading no contest to one count of driving with a blood alcohol content of more than 0.08, prosecutors have dropped the charge.
He has instead been sentenced to 36 months of summary probation and one day in a county jail - which he has already served. In addition, he must complete a 90-day alcohol course.
Bobby blew 0.12 during the sobriety test and in California that is considered legally drunk. Speaking after his arrest, his attorney Tiffany E. Feder claimed he was taking the situation "seriously."
"Everyone is innocent until proven guilty and Mr. Brown was not driving erratically. He was speaking on his cell phone. Mr. Brown has not been convicted of anything associated with this incident. Mr. Brown is taking this matter seriously and an investigation is underway. The legal process shall run its course," he said.

Feder. Outside the court she told E! news he client was "doing well."
A pre-trial hearing was set for May 16, and Commissioner Rebecca Owens ordered has put a term into Bobby's bail which forbids him to drink alcohol before that time. After his arrest, Tiffany maintained Bobby's innocence, saying, "Everyone is innocent until proven guilty and Mr. Brown was not driving erratically. He was speaking on his cell phone. Mr. Brown has not been convicted of anything associated with this incident. Mr. Brown is taking this matter seriously and an investigation is underway. The legal process shall run its course."

The New Edition singer was stopped by officers on Monday when they saw him using his cellphone behind the wheel and he failed a field sobriety test, leading to the charges being brought today, as well as an additional charge of driving with a suspended license.
According to gossip website TMZ, Bobby gave a .12 blood alcohol level when he was tested at the scene. Both offenses are misdemeanors and carry a maximum penalty of six months in jail, as well as a $1,000 fine for each charge.
Earlier today, a lawyer acting for Bobby issued a statement to say the star wasn't "driving erratically" when he was stopped by police, though she made no mention of the failed sobriety test. "Everyone is innocent until proven guilty and Mr. Brown was not driving erratically. He was speaking on his cell phone. Mr. Brown has not been convicted of anything associated with this incident. Mr. Brown is taking this matter seriously and an investigation is underway. The legal process shall run its course," said lawyer Tiffany Feder.
