Bobby Brown Homeless: Troubled Singer’s Financial Struggles Revealed
As reported by AOL Music, since her passing, more and more shocking details have come forth about Whitney Houston‘s tumultuous relationship with her ex-husband Bobby Brown. But perhaps the most surprising news yet breaks this morning (March 5) with the revelation that Bobby Brown was homeless for a period of time after his split from Whitney.
In court documents obtained by RadarOnline, Bobby claims that Whitney’s personal troubles made it difficult for the singer to see his daughter Bobbi Kristina. The New Edition star goes on to disclose his own financial struggles, which he tried not to let interfere with his relationship with his daughter.
“Whitney took Bobbi Kris without my prior knowledge or consent, and moved to Orange County, California, where Whitney received treatment for her drug addiction,” Brown claimed in court papers surrounding his battle with Whitney for child support. “Although I was having severe financial problems, I did all I could to see my daughter.”
“I came to California to be near Bobbi Kris. I also paid approximately $10,000 for Whitney and Bobbi Kris to live in a nice hotel while Whitney was going through rehab. At the same time, I basically lived out of my car,” said Brown of his homeless status.
Despite Bobby’s plea for Whitney’s cash in court, Houston fought back saying: “Bobby is fully capable of working and earning substantial sums of money if he would control his personal behavior. It is his personal conduct that keeps him from earning substantial amounts of money.”
In the end, Brown walked away from the child support battle with no financial support from his ex-wife and Houston maintained custody for their daughter, Bobbi Kristina.
