R&B star BOBBY BROWN was fighting to save his marriage to WHITNEY HOUSTON right up to the point when she served him with divorce papers, according to the singer’s manager/friend Alicia Etheredge.
Etheredge, who has been romantically linked to the My Prerogative hitmaker since his marriage split, claims Brown never gave up on his marriage – and always felt he could repair the damage done by repeated prison stints, drug-taking allegations, child welfare controversies and public spats.
She says, “Bobby is like a romantic… I just know that he tried until he
didn’t have a choice, because even when I saw him at the hardest time, he was still hoping and believing that they were somehow gonna reconnect and get it together.”
Etheredge claims Houston and Brown were considering counselling to fix their broken marriage when the diva decided to end it.
She adds, “They were going to go to therapy or whatever and none of that
But, despite the heartbreak, Brown isn’t giving up on marriage.
His manager reveals, “I think that Bobby is a big romantic and really does
believe in love.
“His parents are still married after all these years and I think that he will
find that again.”
Etheredge has denied reports she is engaged to Brown, insisting the pair are just long-time friends and business partners. (KL/STS/GES)
