Update: Whitney Houston Officially Files For Divorce From Bobby Brown

After a tumultuous 14-year marriage, Whitney Houston has finally filed for divorce from Bobby Brown. The R&B singer filed divorce papers in Orange County Superior Court this week, a month after filing for legal separation from Brown. Houston, 43, had asked in her separation papers that she be granted custody of the couple’s 13-year-old daughter Bobbi Kristina, and that Brown, 37, be allowed visitation rights. The couple wed in 1992, with Houston at the height of her fame as a Grammy-winning superstar known for such hits as “I Will Always Love You.” In an attempt to clean up her public image, Houston stepped out last month for an event in Beverly Hills with SonyBMG?s music mogul Clive Davis, whom she is working with on a new album. Brown, who also has two teenage children with a Massachusetts woman, recently paid up to $11,000 in delinquent child support after being threatened with arrest two weeks ago if he stepped back into the state. Brown’s attorney Phaedra Parks declined comment.
