It was just days ago that Bobby Brown was on top of the world. Or, as much on top of the world as a former drug user with relationship problems and no career can be.

But now, the singer is back behind bars for failing to pay child support. Again.

Moreover, TMZ reports that Brown remains at Norfolk County House of Corrections in Massachusetts because “he can’t afford to pay his debt.”

In an exclusive conversation with Brown’s attorney, Phaedra Parks, TMZ was told that the former New Edition member is scrambling to figure out a way to come up with the $19,100 he owes in back child support payments to Kim Ward, the mother of two of his children.

Yes, that would be on top of the daughter he has with Whitney Houston.

And the baby reportedly on the way with Karrine Steffans.

It seems to us that Bobby needs to learn how to use a condom about as much as Antonella Barba needs to learn how to delete pictures from her camera.

“Mr. Brown is not financially able to make the payment to court,” said Parks, adding that she is currently making her “best effort” to work out some sort of deal with the court.

Whitney’s ex could always consider a payday loan, although such a resource does stick you with an interest rate almost as high as Mischa Barton. Good luck with that, Bob.
