HOLLYWOOD—Whitney Houston's ex-husband, Bobby Brown, checked himself into a treatment facility for alcohol addiction. It is reported that Brown came to the decision to seek help as he can't manage to do it on his own and he is trying to better himself for his children's sake.

Brown has been suffering from alcohol abuse for several years and was arrested for a DUI in March, merely a month after Houston drowned in a hotel bathtub after using cocaine. He pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor DUI charge in April, thus, sentencing him to three years and a day of probation. He was also ordered to attend a 90-day alcohol education program and pay a fine of $390. This was not his first DUI as he was convicted of driving while intoxicated in Georgia in 1996.

Brown and Houston were married for 14 years and filed for divorce in 2006. Brown denied allegations that he introduced Houston to drugs and claimed he had been sober for years.

His current wife, Alicia Etheridge, stated that he is doing well with his treatment. They had been dating since 2007 and married in Hawaii in June.
