Bobby Brown In Rehab: Singer Admits Himself To Treatment Facility

Posted: Updated:

Singer Bobby Brown has entered a rehab facility after a tumultuous few months that included the death of his ex-wife, Whitney Houston, in February, and a DUI arrest the following month.

Attorney Christopher Brown confirmed reports that the singer had entered treatment in a statement to People:

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

Brown was arrested in Los Angeles on March 26 on suspicion of drunk driving. He was later charged with three misdemeanors -- two DUI-related charges and one count of driving with a suspended license -- and faced up to six months in jail. He pleaded not guilty to the charges, and later copped a plea deal to avoid additional jail time.

According to TMZ, Brown was sentenced to 36 months probation and one day in jail, which he had already served at the time of his arrest. In addition, the singer is required to complete a 90-day rehab program.

This is just the latest step for Brown, who has been dealing with the aftermath of Houston's death. He received quite a bit of backlash in the media when he didn't immediately fly to his daughter Bobbi Kristina's side upon hearing the news of Houston's death, and also caused a stir at her memorial and left the service early after a seating dispute.

In happier news, Brown tied the knot in Hawaii in June, and his wife, Alicia Etheredge-Brown, released a statement (via People) about his rehab treatment as well.

"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."
