Exclusive Details
Bobby Brown
is currently undergoing rehab for alcohol addiction, TMZ has learned.

Sources extremely close to Brown tell TMZ, the former "New Edition" singer admitted himself to the treatment facility very recently -- because “he realized he couldn’t do it on his own.”

We're told he's being treated for alcohol abuse issues -- a problem Brown has openly suffered from for many years.

The source adds, Brown “decided that he needed help and wants to make the best out of the rest of his life for his children's sake."

Brown was arrested for DUI in March -- a month after his ex Whitney Houston died.
