Bobby Brown has been released on $5,000 bail.
The "My Prerogative" singer was arrested in Reseda, Los Angeles, yesterday afternoon on driving under the influence (DUI) charges after he failed a sobriety test when police officers stopped him for allegedly driving while talking on his phone. Bobby was taken into custody in Van Nuys jail but released after his representatives arrived to post bail.
"We observed intoxication once Mr. Brown was pulled over. We put him through four sobriety tests, none of which he passed. He was arrested at 12:20 p.m. and booked into the Van Nuys jail," Officer Tiana Reed told RadarOnline.com.
Bobby Brown has been arrested for driving under the influence (DUI). The New Edition singer was stopped by police in Los Angeles this afternoon for allegedly driving while talking on his phone and then failed a sobriety test, but it is unclear what substance officers believe the troubled star had taken before getting behind the wheel.
According to gossip website TMZ, Bobby is currently in custody in Van Nuys jail, but his representatives are said to be en route to the facility to post bail.
Whitney Houston's sister-in-law says it was inevitable the singer would die early.
The "I Will Always Love You" hitmaker, 48, was found dead in a bathtub in her Beverly Hilton Hotel suite last month and Patricia Houston admits she always thought Whitney would lose her battle with drink and drugs.
"I would be kidding myself to say otherwise," added Patricia, who is married to Whitney's brother Gary.
Before her tragic death, Whitney - who had a long history of drink and drug addiction - had been trying to turn her life around but Patricia wasn't convinced. "Things were changing, very much so... it wasn't about substance abuse or anything like that relative to the latter days or anything like that. t was just more of a lifestyle. I was afraid for other things. I saw her chasing a dream, you know, looking for love in all the wrong places," she told Oprah Winfrey.
Whitney Houston has left everything in her will to her daughter, Bobbi Kristina.
The legendary singer - who was found lifeless in a bathtub in her Beverly Hilton Hotel suite on February 11 - has willed her entire estate, including all of her money, cars, furniture and other personal effects, to her 19-year-old daughter.
According to a 19-page court document obtained by Inside Edition, the will was first set up in 1993, but later amended in 2000 - when she was still married to Bobby Brown - and while the singer is mentioned in the will, he will receive nothing.
The money will be placed in a trust until Bobbi Kristina turns 21 in 2014, when she will receive a chunk of her inheritance. A further portion will then be obtained on her 25th birthday, with the final segment delivered when she hits the age of 30.
Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown had a prenuptial agreement drawn up before they got married.
The late singer - who passed away last month at the age of just 48 - signed the document on July 17, 1992, and as well as banning him from accessing her will, it stated the income both parties earned during their marriage would remain separate property.
"Houston shall have the right to dispose of her Separate Property by Last Will and Testament in such manner as she may, in her own uncontrolled discretion deem proper. All future earnings, income, and accumulations resulting from each of the party's respective personal activities, skills, efforts and work (including but not limited to each party's respective earnings, income and accumulations derived from recording contracts, movie contracts, other media contracts, concert tours, endorsements, personal appearances....shall remain separate," the agreement read, obtained by RadarOnline.com.

Last week, the New Kids on the Block hit the recording studio with the group that hit the music scene before them: New Edition. It was the first time both Maurice Starr creations have worked together on a project.
The song - which does not include bad boy Bobby Brown - is being put together by RedOne, the same man also responsible for Heidi Montag‘s new track ‘Fashion.’ (Just in case that news raises any red flags for you.) According to the producer, the song “sounds very universal and melodic and has both sides in it: The R&B, which is New Edition and the pop side for New Kids.”

Thanks to Being Bobby Brown, the public already knows a lot more than they wanted to about the music industry’s Most Troubled Couple. So really, what more could Bobby Brown say now?
Well, apparently a lot more. In an upcoming tell-all, the New Edition singer pulls no punches about his less than angelic past. But will pro-Whitney Houston fans believe what he has to say?
According to the New York Post, the musician basically blames his history with cocaine on the turbulent union. (Marijuana had been his drug of choice.) In Bobby Brown: Bobby Brown: The Truth, the Whole Truth and Nothing, he also admits that people may have been right to question the couple’s longevity from the start.
