Whitney Houston divorces Bobby Brown
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

September 13, 2006, 3:56 PM EDT

Whitney Houston has filed for divorce from her husband Bobby Brown, her publicist told The Associated Press on Wednesday.

Publicist Nancy Seltzer declined to reveal where or when Houston filed the divorce papers, and said the singer had no statement to make.

"I can just confirm that she has filed for divorce," Seltzer said.

Houston and Brown, who wed in 1992, have had a sometimes tumultuous marriage, and rumors of their breakup have surfaced often over the years.

The couple, who live in Alpharetta, Ga., have one child, a 13-year-old daughter, Bobbi Kristina.

Houston, 43, had her greatest musical success in the 1980s and '90s when she had several No. 1 records on Billboard's Hot 100 including the megahit "I Will Always Love You," from the 1992 film "The Bodyguard," in which she also starred opposite Kevin Costner.

Houston has not been as active in the last decade and has battled drug problems.

In recent years she's been an executive producer on the popular Raven-Symone films "The Cheetah Girls" and "The Cheetah Girls 2."

Her musician husband recently reunited with his old soul group New Edition for a show at July's Essence Musical Festival. The show got mixed reviews from the audience when Brown jumped suggestively around the stage and made vulgar remarks about his sex life with Houston.

Brown, 37, has had a history of drug and alcohol arrests and was sentenced to 90 days in jail in 2004 for missing three months of child support payments for two other children.

He was arrested in March on minor motor-vehicle violations dating back 14 years when he visited Webster, Mass., to watch one of his children take part in a cheerleading tournament.

About time too Miss Whitney! That man derailed her career. I hope she can get into rehab and make some music again. Go head Miss Whitney, it ain't too late girl.
 
Funny how this comes a week after the National Enquirer reported Osama Bin Laden wanted to marry Whitney.

Still... its a step up from Bobby Brown!

Miss Ghetto! How wonderful to have you back!
In recent pictures of Whitney, she is looking much healthier then she has in the past few years. The woman does have a truly incredible voice, but I wonder if her public image has taken too much of a hammering for her to ever make a successful comeback.
 
Worse News: Anna Nichole Smith's 20 year old son, three days after Anna gave birth to a baby girl, died. The details of his death are up in the air, which makes me speculate suicide.
 
Miss.

GHETTO.

FABULOUS!!!!!!!!


You're back!!!  Yay.

After seeing Being Bobby Brown, it seems to me she's more than her fair share of crazy too.  I'm sure this will help, but I'm afraid she's too far gone.

Can voice therapy undo all the crack damage?  Last time I heard her, she could barely sing.
 
Hey y'all, I just found these pictures of Miss Whitney at a charity ball that was held last night in LA. Miss Whitney, you look great boo, and I think Mr Usher agrees! Kickin' Bobby's ass to the kerb looks to have done Miss Whitney a world of good! She looks healthy and happy and it's time for another album, y'all. I know Miss Whitney will not go down the road of Miss Janet, tryin' to be all ghetto at 40. The kids don't wanna be seein' that and the older fans ain't into that. Miss Whitney got the voice to be timeless.

Wasn't it rumoured that Rodney Jerkins was writing with Cathy Dennis on tracks for Miss Whiteny?

Yes, you can feel them.

She looks fab....now make us a new album Whitney!
 
Re: New Miss Whitney pics - she looks great. Now, make an album girl!

Wow this is amazing. I was dreading she'd die from drugs anytime soon but it's good she split up from her husband. She's my favourite singer of all time and can't wait to hear new stuff if she does intend to come back.

Not too keen on the hair colour, but apart from that - Whitneys back! :D
 
Re: New Miss Whitney pics - she looks great. Now, make an album girl!

Bless her. She looks radiant. Just shoot Bobby if he comes within a mile of her.
 
Re: New Miss Whitney pics - she looks great. Now, make an album girl!

she looks the spitting image of Dionne Warwick.

Well they are related (cousins I think?) so now she's a bit older it makes sense I suppose.

I hope Whitney's voice recovers as well as her body from her troubles over the past few years. Her live performances over the last few years have been quite strained, her voice nowhere near as powerful as it once was. Welcome back Whitney!

Yup, Whitney is Dionne's first cousin, and Aretha Franklin is her godmother.

And then you have Hulk Hogan's daughter.

Given how gaunt she has been looking recently these pictures are amazing!
