Bobby Brown checked into a confidential rehabilitation center last week as part of an agreement after his arrest for driving-related infractions, his attorney has announced.
"Mr. Brown takes his agreement very seriously and admitted himself three weeks after concluding his honeymoon in Mexico during a break from the New Edition tour," attorney Christopher Brown said in a statement. "Bobby is doing well and receiving services that comply with his agreement with the State of California."
The singer, 43, was arrested in March for driving under the influence when he was pulled over for talking on his cell phone. He then failed a field sobriety test.

The tribute was the emotional highlight of the evening, and started with some heartfelt words from Mariah Carey.
"I miss my friend. I miss hearing her voice and laughter, but we'll always have the music," Carey said. "We'll always have that voice we all fell in love with. She inspired us all."

Bobbi Kristina Brown is grieving the loss of her mother Whitney Houston – but the young aspiring actress didn't walk out on Tyler Perry's For Better or Worse and, in fact, did "great" work, according to the director.
On Wednesday a report surfaced that Bobbi Kristina quit the TBS comedy and walked out of the show because she is dealing with the death of her mom.
But Perry posted an adamant defense of Houston's daughter on his website saying, "Yes she was grieving, but grief aside, she managed to finish her obligation and did a great job at the same time."

Her movie Sparkle does not open until Aug. 17, but this week brought the debut of Whitney Houston's final song, "Celebrate," a duet from the movie with her costar, Jordin Sparks.
Ryan Seacrest unveiled the pulsating number on his radio show Monday. "Celebrate," which was produced by R. Kelly, will be available on iTunes June 5.

Houston plays Sparks's mother.

It was a night of tributes at the Billboard Music Awards on Sunday.
The evening's most emotional moment came during a tribute to the late Whitney Houston. While Jordin Sparks performed the singer's iconic hit "I Will Always Love You," Houston's daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown, broke down in tears before taking the stage to accept the Millennium Award on her mom's behalf.
"I really want to say thank you to everyone who supported us through it all," said Brown, who stood alongside Whitney's manager and sister-in-law Patricia Houston. "Not just from when it was good but when it was bad, too. Thank you for showing that much love, because she deserved it ... I'm just blessed to have been in such an incredible woman's life. There will never be another one, ever."

The pastor and gospel recording artist who gave the eulogy at Whitney Houston's funeral in February was beaten and carjacked in Detroit on Wednesday.
The Rev. Marvin Winans suffered cuts and bruises and had his wallet, a $15,000 Rolex watch and his 2012 Infiniti SUV stolen, according to the Detroit Free Press.
The three or four men who attacked Winans at a gas station in a northwest part of the city likely did not know who he was, police said.

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."

After Whitney Houston was found facedown in a bathtub, hotel security received a call from a woman in the singer's room who kept hanging up.
As a result, the emergency operator was never able to relay CPR instructions directly to anybody in the singer's suite at the Beverly Hilton, according to a tape of the 911 call.
Houston, 48, died of accidental drowning with cocaine use and heart disease contributing to her death, an autopsy found.

On the day she died, Whitney Houston complained of a sore throat, so she decided to take a bath in her hotel room at the Beverly Hilton before getting ready for a pre-Grammy party.
The singer's assistant left Houston to run an errand at Nieman Marcus. When the assistant returned to the singer's room around 3:35 p.m. on Saturday Feb. 11, Houston was lying face down in the bathtub in approximately 13-inches of water, according to an autopsy report released Wednesday.
