Judge Orders the Arrest (Again) of Bobby Brown

10/2/2006 2:34 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Bobby Brown.Looks as if Bobby Brown won't be going anywhere near his native Boston anytime soon. A family court judge in Canton, Mass., today ordered Brown's arrest after he failed to show up for a hearing over delinquent child support payments.

Kim Ward, of Stoughton, the mother of Brown's teenaged daughter La Princia and son Bobby Jr., claims that Brown owes her two months' support for the children amounting to $11,000. Brown also has one child with Whitney Houston, Bobbi Kristina, and an older son, Landon, with another woman. In June 2004, the R&B star was sentenced to 90 days in prison for missing three months of payments, though the sentence was suspended after Brown made a $15,000 payment.

It's just the latest legal setback for the beleaguered Brown: Just last month, his wife Whitney Houston filed for a legal separation -- with the intention of divorcing Brown -- in Los Angeles. And his Atlanta-based lawyer Phaedra Parks sought to employ the divorce proceedings in his defense. "The media is very aware of this very public divorce that's going on right now," said Parks to the AP. "It's unfortunate we find ourselves in Boston on this matter." Parks did not respond to a TMZ call seeking further comment.

My thought to this is:
Wonder who will be by his side during this court room appearance.
Wonder if it will be Whitney Houston this time

I am so happy that someone helped Whitney to wise up!!

I think Bobby Brown is despicable! I'm sure he'll get millions in the settlement from their divorce. But don't look for it to last long! He'll probably spend it all on drugs and women.

He seems to destroy everything he touches.

BOBBY IS JUST A STREET WISE BAD BOY AND HE WILL CONTINUE TO GET INTO TROUBLE TIME AND TIME AGAIN BECAUSE THAT'S JUST HIS NATURE AND WHO HE IS. THAT'S NOT GOING TO CHANGE ANYTIME SOON. HE NEVER DESERVED WHITNEY HOUSTON BECAUSE HE ONLY HELPED BRING OUT THE BAD SIDE IN HER, WHICH PRATICALLY DESTROYED HER LIFE.
HE BELONGS WITH A FEMALE VERSION OF HIMSELF, WHERE THEY BOTH CAN BE BAD TOGETHER.

Bobby reminds me so much of Ike Turner. Both of them lived off the talent of their wives. Bobby, like IKE will never have the talent of Whitney or Tina..and it grinds at them, so they had to do everything in their power, to bring them down to their level.

I hope Whitney doesn't bail him out once again. I hope she remains strong, and makes this man take responsibility for his own life..and his own decisions/consequences. He has sponged off of her far to long already. Probably bled her dry, financially.. and now the money is gone, so is the bastige, and has clung himself to another "sugar momma".

Stay strong Whitney........keep away from this loser....you and your daughter deserve so much better!

This guy is a mega loser and yes quite ugly!!. Not sure what the hell Whitney saw in him or the other women that procreated with him. Surely, some other stupid woman will be willing to be with this guy and probably pay his child support.

Four kids by three different women, only one of which he was married to. And that won't be for much longer. Loser with a capital "L" Where is the money going to come from to pay the $11K he owes. I don't think Whitney will be paying his debts for him anymore. Good for her.

I really don't like Bobby Brown,but get real 11,000 for two months of child support that is just way too much for someone who is not making any money. Yes I am a mother with three kids it just seems like some women have kids with stars as their own meal ticket.

getting tired of this garbage    

Well, I guess the money train is gone and he can't pay his support . She should not be getting that much money to begin with; when was the last time Bobby Brown generated any real income?

Get Real    

Come on now lets be real. Whitney knew what she was getting into when she married him. They were together because they both were doing drugs and all Bobby has done is what some women do to men... He saw a cash cow and he milked her. Hell Whitney started off paying his child support from jump. He was damn near broke when they married. If 11,000 is too much he should have went into court to see if he could get it reduced. It's toooooo easy.
