Enters Rehab for Alcohol

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.

The only this is going to work is that he will have to live there until he dies. Which won't be long anyway.

Bobby Houston is a good dad, he's been cleaned for 2 years, the last I "saw" him that's what he said.
It's impossible to stop drinking, smoking weed, doing hard drugs at the same time when you always have.
Once you know that, you cut the BS and it makes live easier.

This is really fantastic news. My prayers are with Bobby. This has been a tough addiction for him and his bandmates. It would really be a blessing for him to kick it.

Guilt eats at him everyday. Words never spoken like simply saying, "I love you". He grieves for not being to stop her from harm and he shouldn't.

Stop blaming yourself Bobby; it was Whitney's choice and she made the final decision.

He should be treated for abuse in general, it will work better. Just like antibiotic, he needs the broadest spectrum.

He made a sextape with Whitney, some day, if he really can't pay the bills anymore, we might see it.
Houston talked about it once, she was scared as hell.
