It's time for Bobby Brown to face the music for his DUI conviction.
Whitney Houston's ex was handcuffed and led out of Los Angeles court to jail Wednesday to begin his 55-day sentence for an October arrest in Studio City, Calif.
But the soul singer may only serve only nine days because of jail overcrowding and time off for good behavior, Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department spokesman Steve Whitmore tells the Los Angeles Times.

Nearly one year after Whitney Houston's shocking death, her mom Cissy Houston often asks herself: "Could I have saved her somehow?"
In a revealing new memoir, Remembering Whitney (Harper Collins), Cissy, 79, writes candidly about her daughter's severe drug problems and the downward spiral that led to her death by drowning in a hotel bathtub with traces of cocaine still in her system.
"She started partying and she didn't really know how to stop," says Cissy. "I used to wonder what she was doing at night, where she was."

Bobby Brown will not accept the theory that he is responsible for his ex-wife Whitney Houston's death. Nor does he believe he is the one who got the music legend hooked on drugs.
"Not true," the R&B singer, 43, tells Matt Lauer in a Today show interview Tuesday, Brown's first since the Feb. 11 death of Houston. "I didn't get high [on narcotics] before I met Whitney. I smoked weed, I drank the beer, but no, I wasn't the one that got Whitney on drugs at all."
Brown insists drugs were already part of Houston's life "way before" their relationship. "It's just unexplainable how one could, you know, [claim that I] got her addicted to drugs. I'm not the reason she's gone."
