Bobby Brown has just entered rehab for alcohol addiction. The 43 year old has admitted to friends he "just can't do it on his own" anymore.

The R&B singer just completed a tour with his former band-mates New Edition and suffered the loss of his ex-wife Whitney Houston back in February and appeared on Ellen where he opened up about how her death affected him.

Since Whitney's death, he married longtime girlfriend Alicia Etheridge, who says that Bobby is doing well.-DocFB

Bobby Brown will be allowed to attend the funeral of his late ex-wife Whitney Houston on Saturday. He will rejoin New Edition on tour later that night.

Bobby Brown left the New Edition tour on Sunday to be there for his and the late singer's daughter, Bobbi Kristina.  We are being told that Bobby still has not seen his daughter as her family feels he is only trying to get close to her for the money she stands to gain from her mother's passing.

We have not heard if it is Bobbi Kristina who does not want to see her father although you would be led to assume that is the case.

Since Whitney's passing, her record sales have selling very well.

Bobby will attend the funeral in New Jersey and then fly to Connecticut to perform with the band that night.-DocFB

Bobby Brown powered through last night's concert with New Edition following the death of his ex-wife Whitney Houston. Today, he left the tour to be there for daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown.

As we previosuly reported, Bobbi Kristina is not taking the death of her mom very well at all.  She has been to the hospital twice in the past 24 hours for anxiety and stress over the loss of her mom.

New Edition obviously understands why Bobby needs to leave the tour, unlike reasons in the past.  The tour started this weekend.

We are glad someone is going to be there for that girl.  Bobby has turned his life around in recent years and that girl needs someone solid in her life right now.-DocFB

Johnny Gill performed last night performing new songs and classics and towards the end, he brought out Ralph Tresvant from New Edition to sing with him.

They performed "Can You Stand The Rain" the 2nd major hit New Edition had after Gill replaced Bobby Brown in the band.  For those taking note, their first hit with Gill was "If It Isn't Love" btw.

It was one of many highlights during Gill's set, which was an extended one, as the opening act El Debarge did not show up last night.  Gill and later Brian McKnight mad Debarge an afterthought however.

Enjoy this live performance of "Can You Stand The Rain" by Johnny Gill and Ralph Tresvant.-DocFB
