In news that will surprise no one, Bobby Brown is heading to jail. The late Whitney Houston’s ex-husband has been sentenced to 55 days in the bing thanks to yet another DUI arrest back in Oct. 2012.
TMZ broke the story … Brown was arrested in October after cops pulled the singer over for driving erratically, and smelled alcohol in his ride.
Bobby was charged with DUI and driving on a suspended license following the incident. (Brown’s license had been suspended as a result of his previous DUI conviction in 2012. Bobby was also convicted of DUI in 1996.)
Bobby pled no contest to the charges today. He was sentenced to the jail time, plus 4 years probation. He was also ordered to complete an 18-month alcohol program. This is Bobby’s third DUI conviction.
Bobby has to turn himself in to jail by March 20 — and has been ordered to attend 3 AA meetings per week until then.
The struggle is real, Bobby. But the “My Prerogative” singer better thank his lucky stars that no one was killed while he was drinking and driving.
On a semi-related note, back in December, Rihanna allegedly compared her and Chris Brown’s relationship to Bobby Brown and Whitney Houston’s. She may want to re-think that.
As for Mr. Bobby Brown, the older one, instead of clowning the former New Edition member, we sincerely hope that he gets his life together.
