Bobby Brown -- Too Broke to Get Out of Jail?

2/26/2007 6:45 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Bobby BrownTMZ has learned that Bobby Brown is still sitting behind bars at Norfolk County House of Corrections in Massachusetts because, "He can't afford to pay his debt."

In an exclusive conversation with Brown's attorney, Phaedra Parks, TMZ was told that the former New Edition member is scrambling to figure out a way to come up with the $19,100 he owes in back child support payments to Kim Ward, the mother of two of his children.

"Mr. Brown is not financially able to make the payment to court," said Parks, adding that she is currently making her "best effort" to work out some sort of deal with the court.

When asked about the fortune he amassed during his days as a world famous musician, Parks replied, "He was an 80s icon, that was 20 years ago."

Bobby should go on tour with K-Fed and Vanilla Ice. They would make a fortune.

Wonder how long it will be until Whitney, as the mother of one of the children, comes to his aid?

BOBBY BROWN IS INCARCERATED RIGHT NOW BECAUSE HE OWES AN ARREARAGE IN CHILD SUPPORT. HE HAS TO PAY $11,000 TO ONE WOMAN WHO HAS A SON AND DAUGHTER WITH MR. BROWN. HIS LAWYER IS ON THE RIGHT TRACK WHEN IT COMES TO MODIFYING HIS INCOME. YES, HE WAS AN 80'S/90'S ICON BUT IN MASSACHUSETTS WHERE I RESIDE, IF YOU ARE MARRIED TO A MAN WHO OWES CHILD SUPPORT, UNCLE SAM CAN GARNISH A WIFES INCOME AS WELL. IF YOU DO'NT KNOW WHAT YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT, THEN SHUT THE F**K UP!!!

Hey animal, here's a way to earn some money. How about a pay per view event featuring you walking into a jet engine.

This piece of human filth is only alive because it is probably against the law to kill him. I'd like to do it myself just to watch him die.

Without getting into the race issue - because it really isn't a black/white/yellow thing - he is a dirtbag, with a capital D. He must like the three hots and a cot.
