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.

Wow! He was sentenced to 90 days in jail for missing 3 months of support. I should move to Mass. since here in MD my ex is 30K + in arrears and hasn't paid in the last 5 months. The court system here doesn't know what the word enforcement means.

To the woman talking about the amount of child suppor this girl is suppose to get. STOP IT! I hate jealous ass women you hold the rest of back. Does your man have the funds, hits or means that Bobby Brown did? The amounts are dictated by the law in how much he earns. The children have no say that he squanders it instead of feeding them. Really $5k is not a lot for two teenage children. Bobby is currently staying at the Beverly Hills Hotel. Want to know how much a suite costs?

The mother does work and she was with Bobby prior to his success they are from the same area of Boston. He did not marry her but ran off and married Whitney. I hope you are not teaching your children this hateful, envious, crap! Ain't it funny Bobby can afford an attorney to represent him just not the child support...give me a break.
