Update: Bobby Brown Wants Divorce With Whitney Houston Thrown Out

R&B singer Bobby Brown’s lawyers asked a California judge on Friday (Aug. 31) to throw out his divorce from Whitney Houston and reopen the question of custody over the couple’s 14 year-old daughter. “He did not have his day in court,” Brown’s attorney Stacy Phillips told the Orange County Superior Court. The uncontested divorce judgment, which became final in April, ended the couple’s turbulent 15-year marriage, while Houston got sole custody of daughter Bobbin Kristin Brown. Phillips said Brown believed the pair were working on their marriage and that Houston had told him not to worry about the divorce proceedings. She said the two had made an agreement. “Who is he going to rely on the most?” Phillips said. “The woman he loves. He thinks they’re working on their marriage.” Judge Claudia Silas said she would have to listen to testimony from both singers before deciding the issue, and she set a hearing for October 22.
