Singer Bobby Brown has released an official statement exclusively to "Extra" on the death of Whitney Houston.
"I am deeply saddened at the passing of my ex-wife, Whitney Houston. At this time, we ask for privacy, especially for my daughter, Bobbi Kristina. I appreciate all of the condolences that have been directed towards my family and I at this most difficult time." Said Bobby Brown.
Whitney Houston's ex-husband Bobby Brown cried on stage at his concert in Houston Saturday night after learning of Houston's death. Brown, who reunited with his old singing group, New Edition, had to stop several times to compose himself at a performance in Mississippi.
Bobby, 43, told the crowd, "First of all, I want to tell you that I love you all. Second, I would like to say, I love you Whitney. The hardest thing for me to do is to come on this stage."
Bobby Brown is yet another celebrity victim of hoax Internet death reports.
Despite a flurry of web activity Tuesday (mostly from Twitter) that claimed the singer was deceased, Brown's rep's office tells TVGuide.com he is indeed alive and well.
"Extra" has learned that Bobby Brown owes his divorce lawyers more than $90,000, according to court documents. The papers were filed in the Los Angeles Superior Court on August 15, 2008. The docs state that previous charges and late penalties are due to Brown's lawyers for their "professional services" during his split from ex Whitney Houston in 2007.
Brown and Houston were married for 15 years before their breakup. They have one daughter together, Bobbi Kristina Brown, 15. Bobby has three additional children from previous relationships.
The countdown to the Whitney Houston vs. Bobby Brown divorce battle is intensifying.
"Extra" has learned that the pop diva didn't just throw Bobby out; she's now dumping the rest of her stuff too!
Yes, it's true. Everything must go, even Whitney's underwear, which we found on the auctioneer's website.
From bustiers to a church pew and some of Bobby's music awards, all of Whitney's "stuff" will go on the auction block next week.
