When Bobby Brown was arrested this week on suspicion of DUI, few people were surprised. It wasn't exactly the singer's first arrest.

Among those who saw another run in with the law coming for this New Edition members? Cissy Houston, the mother of Whitney who has been telling everyone in her circle that Bobby is a bad influence on 19-year old granddaughter Bobbi Kristina.

Sources tell TMZ Cissy feels "vindicated" by the arrest and hopes the incident helps her case: that Brown should "keep his distance" from his child, who has been going through a great deal of turmoil since her mom's passing last month.

Referring to her dad, one insider says: "This is the last person she needs to be around."

It doesn't sound like Bobbi will need much convincing. Rumors state that the teenager is hoping to change her last name in the near future in order to separate herself as much as possible from her law-breaking parent.

Bobby Brown is in trouble with the law once again.

The singer was arrested this afternoon in Reseda, California on suspicion of driving under the influence, TMZ confirms, as police pulled the artist over around 12:20 p.m. local time while he was chatting on a cell phone.

Brown was then booked and placed in a Van Nuys jail. Friends are reportedly on the way to bail him out as we type.

Whitney Houston's ex, who has not been making positive headlines since his former wife passed away, was also arrested in 1996 on drunk driving charges, eventually serving eight days in jail.

In November 2002, meanwhile, he was arrested in Atlanta (mug shots above) and charged with possession of marijuana, speeding and driving without a license or proof of insurance.

Yes, Bobby Brown really might write a memoir about his life with Whitney Houston and - brace yourselves for this revelation, folks! - a source says the tell-all would pretty much just profit the washed-up artist.

"He's not going to address anything that will cast him in a negative light," an insider tells E! News of Brown's book. "And that's why people, I don't think, will buy the book. They're going to see that it will most likely be completely self-serving."

From leaving Whitney's funeral early, to making odd in-concert statements about himself and his wife, Bobby has been less than respectful since Houston died, many believe.

What great revelations is he going to have in this book, the same E! mole wonders, adding that Brown would just be after a paycheck if he went through with the plan and:

"Don't forget he signed the confidentiality agreement [when he and Whitney divorced]. He may have to get somebody else to write it. A ghostwriter. What am I saying? He's not going to be writing it anyway, of course he'll get somebody else to do it."

Bobby Brown and Chris Brown. Both controversial figures who share a surname and other attributes. Both R&B singers have found themselves in the news lately for unrelated, semi-scandalous reasons. Both frequent THG conversation topics.

Which Brown is best? Or the least terrible? Time for a THG Tale of the Tape!

Bobby Brown, this may be your prerogative, but it's a really bad idea.

According to sources in the publishing world, the singer was planning to pen a memoir about Whitney Houston a few years ago, but interest "wasn't that great" at the time. Now, however?

"The market has changed," this insider tells The Huffington Post. "Now is the time for a book that details an honest look into the life of Whitney."

But there's no way Brown would exploit Whitney's death, right? Not when daughter Bobbi Kristina is suffering through such a tragic downward spiral, right?

"This is a man who left his ex-wife's funeral because he didn't like his seats and went to a paying gig that night," a friend of Whitney tells the site. "He didn't get on stage that night because he needed to sing his greatest hits or because Whitney would have wanted him to entertain his fans, he did it to get a paycheck - the same reason he now wants to write a tell-all book."

Sadly, that's a very good point.

Bobby Brown and his former in-laws are at such odds that the singer was nearly uninvited to Whitney Houston's funeral (and then proceeded to exit after just a few minutes in attendance).

But the opposing parties apparently have one thing in common: both are VERY concerned over the state of Bobbi Kristina, Brown and Houston's 18-year old daughter.

With reports circulating that claim Bobbi vanished for hours after her mother was laid to rest, and was eventually discovered with drugs in her system, the New Edition singer is reportedly is urging his child to enter a rehab program.

“Krissy has taken her mother’s death really hard, not surprisingly, and Bobby is terrified she’s going to do something stupid," an insider tells Radar Online. "He wants her in a treatment center, getting professional help to get her through the grieving process without falling back on alcohol or drugs to mask her pain.”

Ironically and tragically, of course, the basis of Brown's beef with Whitney's family is his history of substance abuse and their belief that he played a significant role in setting both Whitney and Bobbi down this dangerous path.

The story is well known by now: Bobby Brown left Whitney Houston's funeral after just 20 minutes because he tangled with security, and his former in-laws, over seating arrangement.

But where did he go from there? To Mohegan Sun, a casino in Connecticut, where Brown performed a set with New Edition.

"I wanna give blessings to my ex-wife Whitney Houston. I love you," Brown said at one point during the concert, pointing toward the sky. "I want to give blessings to my kids, my brothers and all of you. Thank you for the love."

Following a show that included past hits such as "Tenderoni" and "My Prerogative," sources tell People Brown dined with friends.

Bobby Flay's restaurant, Bar Americain. He didn't drink, posed a bit with fans and later gambled for about 20 minutes at $500 blackjack tables.

"He wasn't really partying, but he was having a good time with his old crew from Boston," says a witness. "He had a lot of support and bodyguards stuck close to him to keep fans from being too intrusive."

After a late-night snack, this onlooker says Brown then retired for the night around 2 a.m.

After days spent arguing with Whitney Houston's family over whether or not he'd attend his ex-wife funeral, multiple sources confirm that Bobby Brown continued arguing with his former in-laws today.

And actually left the memorial after just 20 minutes as a result.

Bobby Brown at Whitney Houston Funeral

Both E! News and TMZ report that Brown brought an entourage of nine people in to the Newark church. It's unclear exactly what happened from there, but the singer was spotted exiting the house of worship shortly after the service began.

"I am at Whitney's funeral. I spoke with Bobby Brown trying to calm him down and not distract from the services. Today is about Whitney!" Al Sharpton Tweeted, while Access Hollywood's Shaun Robinson says a "seating arrangement" dispute was at play.

Brown also has a concert gig tonight in Connecticut with New Edition, but it's believed this disagreement with Whitney's family is the reason why he left the premises so quickly.

UPDATE: Brown has released the following statement:

“My children and I were invited to the funeral of my ex-wife Whitney Houston. We were seated by security and then subsequently asked to move on three separate occasions. I fail to understand why security treated my family this way and continue to ask us and no one else to move. Security then prevented me from attempting to see my daughter Bobbi-Kristina.

"In light of the events, I gave a kiss to the casket of my ex-wife and departed as I refused to create a scene. My children are completely distraught over the events. This was a day to honor Whitney. I doubt Whitney would have wanted this to occur. I will continue to pay my respects to my ex-wife the best way I know how.”

Bobby Brown will head to New Jersey this Saturday for the funeral of his ex-wife, but first he joined New Edition last night for a concert in Maryland.

The singer took to the stage in front of a packed house there and gave an odd shout-out to Whitney Houston.

"Life is life... You have to move on sometimes," Brown announced, adding: "I love [Whitney] like I love God ... my name is BAD ASS Bobby Brown."

Well, okay then. Take a look and a listen now:

All may not be completely well between Bobby Brown and the family of Whitney Houston, but a temporary accord has at least been reached.

Following questions over whether or not Brown would be welcome at his ex-wife's funeral - many of his former in-laws believe Bobby has been a terrible influence on both Whitney and daughter Bobbi Kristina - a source tells TMZ:

"At the last minute, the family felt that it would keep the peace at the funeral [to have Bobby there] ... even though some family members were against it."

Bobby, Bobbi and Whitney during happier family times.

The funeral will begin at noon on Saturday; take place in Newark, New Jersey; flags will (controversially) be flown at half-staff on the grounds of all government buildings; and the event will be streamed online.

Brown will reportedly take a private place after the ceremony is over in order to perform with New Edition in Connecticut.
