Bobby Brown and longtime beau Alicia Etheredge got hitched!
Less than 24 hours after his performing a New Edition concert in Honolulu, the two- along with friends, family and his older children- Landon, 23, La’Princia, 22 and Bobby Jr., 19. Of course, Brown and Etheredge’s only child together, Cassius, 3, was also in attendance.
Brown attributes his “new lease on life” to Etheredge (who serves as Brown’s manager), following his tumultuous relationship and 2007 divorce from Whitney Houston. Etheredge and Brown got engaged in 2010 after a New Edition concert and plan on touring with New Edition before honeymooning together.
One person NOT at the wedding? Bobbi Kristina Brown, 19, the groom’s daughter with Whitney Houston. According to People, the two are not on good terms.
After a heated confrontation with Whitney Houston‘s family (and Pat Houston, specifically), Ray J sure didn’t go low profile during the Billboard Music Awards. In fact, he’s been doing too much.
The morning after the famous awards ceremony, Ray J was rushed to the hospital. After a 32 hour trip to China and then immediately flying to Vegas for the awards show, Ray J was acting pretty “out of it” and couldn’t get out of bed, to he was taken to the nearest hospital.
According to TMZ, Ray J was extremely disoriented and was immediately taken by ambulance to be treated for exhaustion and dehydration. He’s still in the hospital, no word when he’ll be released.
During the Billboard Music Awards on Sunday night, Jordin Sparks performed Whitney Houston’s ‘I Will Always Love You’. Kevin Costner was reportedly so overcome with sadness, that he had to leave the room.
Bobbi Kristina was seen breaking down in tears during the song, and later took the stage to accept the Millennium Award on behalf of her mother.
Kevin worked with Whitney Houston on their hit film ‘The Bodyguard’ and remained close to the singer until her death. He found the tribute hard to watch and had to leave the room.
“I did see [Bobbi] speak,” Kevin told ET Online. “That’s a hard song for me to listen to anymore also so I kind of just walked out of the room, but…I was glad that she was out in public.”
Whitney’s last record was released this week. The disco-inspired track is called Celebrate and is a duet with Jordin. The single, which was produced by R. Kelly, premiered on Monday ahead of the late singer’s upcoming film, Sparkle.
Whitney plays Jordin’s on-screen mother in the musical drama.
Celebrate will be available on iTunes from June 5.
Here are some new pictures of Kevin and his wife at the premiere of his new TV series, ‘Hatfields & McCoys’ in Los Angeles.
Whitney Houston will be honored posthumously with the Billboard Millennium Award in a tribute performed by Jordin Sparks and John Legend at the 2012 Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas on Sunday (May 20), it was announced Tuesday.
Houston’s daughter, Bobbi Kristina, and sister-in-law, Pat Houston, will make a special appearance to accept the award in her honor.
Bobby Brown and Whitney Houston may no longer have been a couple when she died in February, but as he told TODAY’s Matt Lauer in an interview that aired Wednesday morning — his first interview since her death — he still misses her fiercely.
“Our relationship was great,” he said. “I had 14 beautiful, beautiful years with that woman.”
And it’s not just his revisionist history, he insisted: “I can honestly say that — I love that woman with — with everything that I am. And I believe she loved me the same way.”
Still, Whitney and Bobby’s relationship was, almost from the start, filled with conflict of one kind or the other. Brown says he never used hard drugs before meeting Houston, and said that she had used drugs before they were involved. “I worried about it when … we first got together until I tried it,” he said. “And when I tried it, for some reason, I have an addictive personality.”
Kevin Costner stopped by Anderson Cooper’s talk show to talk about his upcoming miniseries ‘Hatfields & McCoys’, and ended up talking about his ‘Bodyguard’ costar, Whitney Houston.
The two hadn’t been close since they starred together in the 1992 blockbuster, but Kevin always had a soft spot for the late singer (he even acted as a pallbearer in her funeral). Now the actor is opening up about what he knew and didn’t know about her battle with drugs.
“A couple of times there were some people that really loved Whitney and a couple times in the last seven or eight years they asked me if I would I write her a letter,” he told Cooper.
“It’s so odd. I have this level of celebrity and fame — international or national, whatever you want to refer to it — but it’s a pretty surreal thing to think sometimes that you’re in the middle of another famous person’s life,” he explained.
“You think to yourself, ‘How the hell did I get famous?’ What is this some weird club that we’re in?’”
“So when someone said, ‘Would you write someone a letter to someone who you know is having trouble?’ I did, there were two occasions.”
The gorgeous movie star couple will always be joined in fans’ eyes, but in real life the Dances With Wolves star said: “I elected to let Whitney have her life after The Bodyguard, she would always be close to me, she would always be someone I appreciated.
“I saw pretty much what everyone else saw. But when someone asked me to write a letter I did, I don’t know if those letters were ever read.”
