After DUI Arrest

EXCLUSIVE

1025_bobby_brown_tmz
Bobby Brown's DUI arrest might be the best thing that ever happened to him -- 'cause friends are telling TMZ the singer has finally snapped out of denial and realized he has a drinking problem.

Sources close to Brown tell us ... even though Bobby has been through rehab before, he didn't take it very seriously in the past  ... because he didn't truly believe he was an alcohol abuser.

But now, we're told Bobby is extremely embarrassed by his newest arrest ... and understands that his drinking has become a big, big problem in his life.

One source tells us... Bobby is strongly considering checking back into rehab ... but so far, no decision has been made. We're told his friends support the idea ... but they don't want to push him too hard because they know treatment will only be effective if Bobby makes the decision by himself.

So many vindictive people wishing violence and death upon another.
How black must your spirits be?
So few understand the soul destroying effects such thoughts have on themselves.
Everyone's "bottom" is different.
If he has hit his and decides he needs help, he should be encouraged by all those around him.
Just as important is support in his recovery.

Isn't this pretty much what all the abusers do when they are caught? Keeps them out of jail or reduces their sentence if the judge is gullible, which many of them are.
Another Z list loser. Is he related to Lindsey?

Considering Rehab? You're are delusional if you think you don't need it. How about you take your daughter with you. Gee, if you want bring a camera crew with you and do a reality show about it.

Oh please. He's playing the weakness card to reduce his accountability and punishment. Why didn't you go to rehab yesterday? What has changed since then? You have to wait for a disaster and then use up system resources to handle you, which you should be handling yourself. You've been an adult for a long time. Start acting like one.

Do it babe. You have a life to live, a family to care for, and fans. When you fall, get right back up and try again. Stop reading all the negative things about you from people who have no clue, and just DO IT. I am pulling for you.

Let me guess- he's going to use this as a platform to get on "Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew"?

Seriously, who the hell cares about another drunk???? If Bobby Brown hasn't gotten help yet for his problems w/booze and drugs, then IT'S SIMPLE: HE'LL WIND UP LIKE HIS EX-WHITNEY HOUSTON IN THE GRAVE... Some people just never learn, and THEY DON'T GET IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Bobby Brown... EVERYBODY knows that the Californian Celebrity Courts expects the celebs to preemptively participate in "rehab" or "therapy" when they get busted, then contact TMZ, TMZ will run the story for all the world to see that the person is feigning getting help and then when you guys finally go to court the Celebrity Court's starstruck judge will cut you break that was brokered between the attorney and the celebrity DA [all of whom are in the back pocket of the entertainment industry]... but none of this this comes free. My question is where did you get the money to hire the celebrity attorney... let me guess, you are the Black Dina Lohan sponging off your kid.

Can you see that being Bobby Brown isn't ish? Nobody like a drunk. He's a disgrace to the industry and the race. But as long as he as a teaspoon of fame, some desperate women will be there.
