Bobby Brown Net Worth
Bobby Brown net worth: Bobby Brown is an American R&B singer/songwriter who has a net worth of $2 million. Born February 5, 1969 in Tarzana in Boston, Massachusetts, Brown became famous for hits in the '80s and '90s such as Don't Be Cruel and Humpin' Around. His musical fame was somewhat overshadowed in the late '90s by his (very publicized) troubled relationship with pop singing sensation Whitney Houston. Brown had an impoverished childhood that was also marred by violence. His parents couldn't afford some of the things he coveted as a child, so Brown and his friends resorted to stealing. The turning point in his life was when one of his close friends was stabbed to death at the age of eleven. In 1986, Brown's first solo album, King of Stage, was released and sold moderately well. It wasn't until he teamed up with R&B songwriters/producers Teddy Riley, L.A. Reid and Babyface that his album Don't Be Cruel took the music world by storm in 1988. Unfortunately, just as his music career had reached a peak, Brown's personal life spun out of control. He became known as a hard partier and a womanizer. In 1992, Brown married Whitney Houston in a highly publicized ceremony. What ensued was a series of heavy drinking and drug use on the part of both stars, multiple arrests of Brown and tons of fodder for the tabloids. Brown and Houston had a daughter, Bobbi Kristina, then divorced in 2007. Whitney Houston died February 11, 2012. Brown married Alicia Etheredge in 2012.
