Brown Backs Out Of Bail Deal
LATEST: BOBBY BROWN failed to appear on a radio station's morning show today (02MAR07) after it posted $19,150 (GBP9,820) to bail the singer out of jail.
The Washington, D.C. radio station funded the troubled singer's release from jail Wednesday (28FEB07) in exchange for forthcoming appearances on air.
The 38-year-old was arrested in Attelboro, Massachusetts on Sunday night (25FEB07) for failing to pay child support to his ex-girlfriend KIM WARD, who is the mother of his children, LaPRINCIA, 17, and BOBBY JR, 14.
Radio station staff members from Hot 99.5 are furious with the star and posted a message on their website saying, "If you have been listening to The Kane Show this morning on Hot 99.5, then you already know what's happening. Bobby Brown has backed out on his part of our deal to pay his back child support in return for appearing on The Kane Show for one week."
An arrest warrant was previously issued for the DON'T BE CRUEL singer in October (06) when he failed to attend a child support court hearing, but he was released after immediately paying $11,000 (GBP5,640) to avoid arrest.
In June 2004, Brown was sentenced to 90 days jail after falling behind on child support payments, but paid $15,000 (GBP7,700) and the sentence was suspended.
Brown is currently in the middle of divorcing superstar WHITNEY HOUSTON after 14 years of marriage.
