Brown Cannot Overturn Houston Divorce Terms After Court No-show

LATEST: BOBBY BROWN has jeopardised his attempt to challenge the terms of his divorce from ex-wife WHITNEY HOUSTON after failing to show up in court on Friday (04Jan08). Brown was expected to appear before Superior Court Judge Claudia Silbar at an Orange County, California, court this week, but neither party - or their respective lawyers - turned up. As a result of his no-show, Silbar has refused a request from Brown to appeal for spousal support and shared custody of their 14-year-old daughter, Bobbi Kristina. Brown was not given any financial settlement and had only visitation rights after Houston won a default judgment in April 2007. Court spokeswoman Carole Levitsky said on Friday, "His motion was denied because there were no appearances or phone calls from Mr. Brown today for a scheduled hearing. "As of now, there are no more pending court dates in this case." The judge also used Friday's hearing to deny a motion filed in December (07) by Brown's attorney, Stacey Phillips, to be released as his counsel because of a series of rows with her client. That request was thrown out of court because Phillips herself had also failed to attend the hearing. A representative for Brown has yet to comment.
