There is no doubt things are not tough for singer Bobby Brown. He just lost the love of his life, Whitney Houston, a few weeks ago. He also has battled drug and alcohol addiction for the past two decades. Now he has been arrested for driving under the influence (DUI).
Bobby Brown has been charged with driving under the influence and driving on a suspended license on march 29th. Brown was arrested after police pulled him over for talking on his cell phone and he appeared intoxicated.
Of course this is not Brown’s first run-in with the law. He also has numerous driving-related offenses.
The 43-year-old New Edition singer has been in the spotlight since his ex-wife, multiple-Grammy Award winning recording star Whitney Houston, drowned last month in a hotel bathtub after using cocaine and prescription drugs.
The recording artists, who both battled addictions to drugs and alcohol over the years, have one child together, 19-year-old daughter Bobbi Kristina.
This is yet one more example of how celebrities are not role models. Brown is a poster-child for the “just say no” to drugs and alcohol campaigns. For the sale of his daughter and fans I would hope that Brown could resurrect his health and stay sober.
While my expectations are low, I would recommend he do two things. First, seek salvation and inner-peace by finding religion in his life. Second take an alcohol class and join an alcohol support group like Alcoholics Anonymous to maintain sobriety.
