Bobby Brown Says Whitney Won’t Let Him See His Daughter

In a new lawsuit R&B singer Bobby Brown claims that Whitney Houston has kept him from seeing their teenage daughter. “I have not seen or spoken to my daughter since early June and I have no prospect of speaking to her anytime soon due to Whitney’s actions,” Brown declared in Orange County Superior Court filings released last week. Brown has been trying to overturn a judge’s default judgment to nullify the couple’s marriage and grant Houston sole custody of 14-year-old Bobbi Kristina. During a court hearing in April, Houston testified that Brown was “unreliable” and that she didn’t need spousal or child support. Brown disputes her claim, saying he’s been involved in their daughter’s life and was her primary caretaker when the couple lived in Atlanta. “Since Whitney has been awarded sole legal and physical custody of Bobbi Kris, she has attempted to eliminate me from Bobbi Kris’ life,” the singer states in court documents. “I did all I could to see my daughter,” he added. “I also paid approximately $10,000 for Whitney and Bobbi Kris to live in a nice hotel while Whitney was going through rehab … I basically lived out of my car.” Houston disputes that she is keeping Brown and their daughter apart and says she “would like him to be involved” in Bobbi Kristina’s life. Houston, 44, and Brown, 38, wed in 1992, when she was at the height of her fame as a Grammy-winning superstar known for hits such as “I Will Always Love You.” Brown, a former member of New Edition, gained solo fame with singles such as “Don’t Be Cruel” and “My Prerogative.”
