Bobby Brown has married his fiancee Alicia Etheridge, People Magazine reports today (June 19, 2012). According to their story, the New Edition singer tied the knot with Alicia yesterday, just hours after performing with his band in Honolulu. Brown was formerly married to the pop singer Whitney Houston, who passed away in February this year.
Bobby, 43, was kept company on the big day, by his older children, Landon (23), La'Princia (22) and Bobby Jr. (19). His only child with Alicia, Cassius, aged three, was also present at the ceremony. One notably absent child, however, was Bobbi Kristina Brown - the daughter that he had with Whitney Houston. The 19 year old apparently did not attend her father's wedding. A source has suggested to the magazine that she and her father are not on the best of terms at present.
Bobby wore a red suit and Adidas trainers for the wedding, whilst Alicia opted for a more traditional white strapless dress. Bobby Jr. posted a photo of the couple with Cassius and their bridesmaids on Instagram. The couple have been engaged since 2010. Alicia also works as Bobby's manager and he credits her for the fact that he has regained his love for music. "I got my passion back for music and for loving myself because of her," he told People magazine last year. They will apparently continue to tour with New Edition, rather than taking a traditional honeymoon. The band's next date is June 23, 2012.
