Bobby Brown was arrested on Sunday in Massachusetts outside of his daughter’s high school due to unpaid child support payments. Bobby was at the school to attend his daughter, LaPrincia’s, cheerleading competition. "He went very cooperatively. According to the constable, no one was really around," said Patrick McDermott, clerk of Norfolk Probate Court in Canton, Mass.
The former R & B singer was taken into custody outside before he could enter the school to see his daughter perform, so as not to embarrass himself or his daughter. He was reportedly told that he would be arrested as soon as he entered the state, due to $11,000 he owed his two older children’s mother, Kim Ward, in back child support. Bobby has reportedly paid the money, but his warrant has remained open in the court due to his history of failing to pay child support.
In other Bobby news, he recently spoke out about his relationship with his estranged wife R& B star Whitney Houston. He says the two of them are remaining close and friendly for the sake of their 13-year-old daughter Bobbi Kristina.
We’re trying to work everything out so the divorce goes right – not like a Hollywood divorce. We’re friends, you know. We’re friends. It has brought us closer together, always. We have been close because of who we are together, and what that child means to us. She’s the greatest thing in both of our lives. We just appreciate each other now that we know the direction that we both want to go. I’m really looking forward to her doing her thing, and me doing my thing. And that’s raising a child. It’s beautiful. Our child is beautiful.
