Bobby Brown, who has battled drug problems in the past, has checked into rehab. The singer is seeking help for an undisclosed addiction, reports the New York Daily News.
Brown’s attorney denied reports suggesting he was in rehab for alcohol and cocaine use and declined to comment when asked if the star was in the facility to treat a substance abuse problem.
His attorney did note that Brown would appear at a scheduled performance in Charleston, South Carolina, on March 4.
In 2012, Brown entered rehab for alcohol abuse and was sent to jail the following year for drunk driving. He was released after nine hours and sentenced to probation, which mandated he complete an alcohol program.
In 2009, he opened up about drug abuse on “Behind The Music” by saying, “I was doing more drugs than music, drinking more than singing.” He also admitted that his wife Whitney Houston was an influence in his increased use of drugs and alcohol.
Brown, 47, is about to be a father for the seventh time. His wife, Alicia Etheridge, is pregnant with their third child.
He and Houston’s daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown died at 22 in July 2015 after being found unconscious in her bathtub in Georgia.
