Bobby Brown earned a fortune after his album Don’t Be Cruel became one of the biggest hits of the 80’s, but now it appears he has fallen on hard times, as he was forced to use an airport shuttle bus in Los Angeles yesterday.
Bobby Brown, 43, also had to push his own luggage when he touched down at LAX airport with his current squeeze Alicia Etheridge.
It would be no surprise if Bobby Brown, who looked decidedly grumpy when he climbed on the bus, is struggling financially.
For it was revealed earlier this week Bobby Brown had claimed in court that possession he owned, which were kept in a storage facility he shared with ex-wife Whitney Houston, had to be auctioned off because they could not afford the bill.
In a sworn declaration submitted during their contentious divorce in 2007, Bobby Brown said the former couple had mounting cash worries.
He said: “It was no secret that I (as well as Whitney) had financial commitments we could not meet.
“In fact, just after the first of the year, our possessions held in storage were auctioned off due to a default judgement obtained for unpaid fees.
“Additionally, after Whitney and I separated I had no where to go and very little money to live on. I was for all intents and purposes, homeless.”
However, money troubles are not the only worries Bobby Brown will have on his mind at the moment.
For it has also emerged his daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown wants to change her surname to Houston and write him out of her life completely.
Whitney Houston left all of her estate to her daughter Bobbi Kristina, 19, and left nothing to her former husband Bobby Brown.
