Bobby Brown Busted For DUI

Whitney Houston’s former husband R&B legend Bobby Brown has just been arrested this afternoon in Los Angeles on suspicion of driving under the influence. Cops are telling TMZ that the singer was pulled over in Reseda, CA at 12:20 PM for talking on the cell phone, and was then given a field sobriety test. He is being held at a jail in Van Nuys, but his associates are reportedly makingĀ  moves to bail him out. It’s unknown at this time what substance he was taking at the time of the arrest. This is the 43-year-old’s second DUI offense. He was arrested back in 1996 and spent 8 days in a Georgia jail.

It’s been a rough time for the Brown family in the wake of Whitney’s passing. Daughter Bobbi Kristina was hospitalized for anxiety in the days following, and now she’s rumored to be romantically linked (and possibly engaged) to her adopted brother, Nick Gordon. Could the strain of the past few weeks pushed Bobby to relapse into more of his well documented drug abuse? This arrest comes four days after Whitney’s toxicology report revealed drugs in her system. Might that news have lead to a bender? More details to follow…

Just How Close Are Bobbi Kristina And “Adopted Brother” Nick Gordon?

We’re not sure how to feel about the reports that Bobbi Kristina Brown and Nick Gordon, the 22-year-old Whitney Houston had taken in and called “god-son” since he was 12, have become something more than brother and sister. Since they’re not related, we shouldn’t care, right? But still, they grew up that way, and it must be confusing emotionally for both, especially as they mourn the loss of Whitney. Nick and Bobbi Kristina themselves seem to be flip-flopping on the issue.

Here’s what we know:

  • Whitney took Nick in 10 years ago, when his mother was unable to take care of him (we don’t know why, exactly). She never officially adopted him, but she considered him a son, Whitney’s brother, Michael Houston, told ABC News.
  • Back in November, Bobbi Kristina tweeted about “sleeping” with her “big brudder.” Which kind of sleeping?
  • reported last week that Bobbi Kristina and Nick were spotted kissing each other at a Target.
