In a bold, profound statement, Bobby Brown spoke up for the first time about his recent divorce.
"I'm really saddened by the whole situation," he told People magazine.
Wow. And you thought Brown did his best lyrical work in "Every Little Step I Take."
The singer was in Boston over the weekend to celebrate the 17th birthday of his eldest daughter, Laprincia (with ex-girlfriend Kim Ward). Yes, Laprincia, a name that makes Sutton Pierce Federline seem absolutely poetic.
Brown also caught a Mike Epps show with a group of pals at Boston's Comedy Connection on Sunday night. He seemed to be in good spirits, said a source, until someone asked him to draw devil horns on a Whitney Houston album cover. Just kidding.
Houston and Brown were married for 14 years and have one daughter, Bobbi Kristina, 13. Divorce proceedings are expected to begin next month and Whitney is reportedly asking that she get custody of the child.
Bobbi, meanwhile, is probably wondering whether or not she'd be better off with Kate Moss and Peter Doherty than either of these troubled stars.
