Who is Bobby Brown's wife? Whitney Houston's former husband tied the knot with his manager Alicia Etheredge
The couple got engaged in 2010 when Brown asked the question to Etheredge during a sold-out New Edition show in Jacksonville
Tragedy has struck American singer Bobby Brown again. The singer's 28-year-old son, Bobby Brown Jr, was found dead on Wednesday, November 18, as reported by TMZ. The report states that he was in his home in the LA area. A source told TMZ that police are still at the house, and at this point, they do not think there was foul play involved.
Brown’s daughter, with late singer Whitney Houston, Bobbi Kristina, also died in 2015. She died following months being on the life support system. Bobbi was found unconscious in the bathtub of her Georgia home. The coroner, as reported by TMZ, had determined Bobbi's cause of death was drowning in the tub while she had toxic levels of cocaine and alcohol in her system. In 2012, Houston died allegedly from an accidental overdose. She was found in a bathtub at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.
Bobby Brown's relationships
Bobby Jr is one of Brown’s seven children. He was born to the singer and Kim Ward, with whom Brown had an 11-year on-and-off relationship. They have a daughter named La'Princia. Their relationship ended in 1991, after two-months-pregnant Kim found out Brown was engaged to Whitney. His eldest child Landon, was born circa 1986 to Melika Williams.
In 1989, Brown and Houston met while attending the Soul Train Awards. According to Cheat Sheet, they continued to cross paths several times. Houston invited Brown to her 26th birthday party and they began dating soon after that. In 1992, they married at Houston’s New Jersey mansion and welcome their daughter, Bobbi Kristina, the following Spring. Their marriage ended after 14 years and they divorced. In 2008, Brown had planned to release a tell-all book titled ‘Bobby Brown: The Truth, the Whole Truth and Nothing But’, written by author Derrick Handspike. But Brown backed out of the project. However, the book was later released in 2012.
In 2012, as reported by People, Brown got married to Alicia Etheredge. The couple got engaged in 2010, when Brown asked the question to Etheredge during a sold-out New Edition show in Jacksonville. The singer credited Etheredge for giving him a new direction in life following his 2007 divorce from Houston. Etheredge was also his manager. In 2011, he told People, “I got my passion back for music and for loving myself because of her.” In 2009, they had a son named Cassius and they also had two daughters Bodhi and Hendrix.
In a 2016 interview with ABC News’ Robin Roberts, Etheredge said, “He has feelings, he has emotions. I don’t think [people] know that ... He has a good days and bad days, and he struggles like everybody else. He gets on his knees, and he prays, and he asks for support, and he has really strong faith.” She also said, “When you’re living with somebody who has fought so many addictions and has come so far and then you see there is still something holding them back ... you just want to help them. So I’m learning, obviously, with this process, how to be supportive.”
