Back from rehab, Bobby Brown waiting to become father seventh time
Singer Bobby Brown (47), who was sent to a rehabilitation facility in February 2016 for a drug relapse, is reportedly getting his memoir Every Little Step published in June 2016, before the first death anniversary of his daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown, according to an April report on the gazettereview.com.
Bobby’s long history of substance abuse, especially alcohol, cocaine and heroin, has frequently sent him to drug rehabilitation facilities. Bobby and his current wife Alicia Etheredge are soon expecting their third child. He is out of the rehab center and was recently spotted with his heavily pregnant wife.
According to a New York Daily News report, Bobby’s latest recovery process at the rehab was supposedly at the influence of his wife.
Going through bad phase
The singer of Don’t be Cruel has reportedly been going through bad times. His 22-year-old daughter Bobbi, from his divorced wife late Whitney Houston, died in July 2015 from drug overdose. According to a report on the parentherald.com, “She was found unresponsive in a bathtub in January 2015. She was in a coma for almost six months after which, Kristina died in hospital care.”
Houston, who had divorced Bobby in 2007, also suffered from addiction and was found dead in a Beverly Hills Hotel room in 2012 with cocaine in her body, said a New York Daily News report.
Though he claimed to be living clean at the time of Houston’s death, within months of the tragedy, Bobby was booked for drunken driving by the Los Angeles police and was admitted to a rehabilitation that very year for 18 months.
It seems Bobby, the founder of group New Edition, found it tough to handle the tragedies that hit him one after the other. In January 2011, he lost his mother and a year later, his father passed away. Before he checked into the rehab, Brown’s last album The Masterpiece was released in 2012.
Time to set an example
Citing The Real, a May report on the dailymail.co.uk said that Bobby wished he had been there to prevent his daughter’s death, but it was in God’s hands. He told the dailymail.co.uk, “We prayed and hoped for six months for something better to happen, but when God calls you, he calls you.”
It is easy for celebrities to buy and consume drugs and by following their favourite star’s lifestyle, many fans also adopt their bad habits. For many, taking drugs is associated with flaunting a cool quotient.
Celebrities should set an example and as their fans consider them to be their role models, it is on them to spread awareness that drugs are bad for health and the society.
