Bobby Brown checks into rehab for alcohol abuse

By Gina DiFalco,

Bobby Brown is in rehab for alcohol abuse.

His attorney has confirmed that Brown checked into a rehabilitation center following a March DUI arrest.

“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," his attorney Christopher Brown said in a statement, People reports.

He added, "Bobby is doing well and receiving services that comply with his agreement with the State of California."

Earlier this summer, Brown married Alicia Etheredge in Hawaii. His wife has released a statement, saying "Bobby's children and loved ones are very proud of him. We appreciate his fans' prayers and well wishes. Bobby is mentally in a good place."

A source told TMZ that he entered the treatment center because “he realized he couldn’t do it on his own.” The source added that he “decided that he needed help and wants to make the best out of the rest of his life for his children's sake."

Even Brown’s daughter with the late Whitney Houston, Bobbi Kristina, who he doesn’t have the closest relationship with tweeted about him on Wednesday.

“I love my father, very much and wish him well in all,” she said.
