Bobby Brown in rehab as Whitney tribute starts
Bobby Brown is reportedly undergoing treatment for alcohol problems again. Bobby has had a much publicised history of substance abuse. Just last March, he was arrested again for DUI (driving under the influence).
However, his new wife Alicia Etheridge, who married him eight weeks ago, wouldn't confirm the TMZ report. Bobby, 43, and Alicia began dating a year after Whitney dumped him in 2006.
Meanwhile, the Grammy Museum has unveiled a tribute to Whitney, put together by family members to celebrate her career. The exhibit, Whitney! Celebrating The Musical Legacy Of Whitney Houston, features items such as her iconic gowns, her Grammys, movie scripts, modelling photos and personal memorabilia.
Highlights include a beaded gown that she wore at the 1994 Grammys, private letters from legendary music producer Clive Davis, and a tea cup that she drank out of before each performance.
"We have picked the things that people will find the most interesting and, in many cases, bring back fun memories. We are really very overjoyed that we are here today to represent and be a part of such a wonderful and splendid career of such a beautiful and talented woman," her sister-in-law and former manager Pat Houston told reporters.
Pat was joined by Whitney's brother Gary and sister-in-law Donna, who worked with the museum in LA to curate the exhibition. Whitney's mum Cissy, her 19-year-old daughter Bobbi Kristina, and Bobby didn't attend.
Whitney, 48, drowned in a hotel bathtub in Beverly Hills in February from what authorities said was heart disease and the effects of cocaine. The exhibit makes no mention of her turbulent personal life and history of drug abuse.
Grammy Museum officials said the exhibit was put together after fans asked why there was no homage to her following her death. It will run until February 2013.
