It is official! R&B crooner Bobby Brown (pictured) married his longtime lady-love Alicia Etheredge (pictured) paradise-style in Hawaii on Monday surrounded by family and friends, reports People Magazine.
Brown’s children — Landon, 23; La’Princia, 22; Bobby Jr., 19; and his child with Alicia, 3-year-old Cassius (pictured in Brown’s arms) — were all on hand to see Daddy tie the knot. The only missing child out of Brown’s brood was Bobbi Kristina, the child that he had with the late-pop princess Whitney Houston.
Bobbi Kristina might have been MIA, because she was busy filming scenes for her new upcoming reality show, “The Houston Chronicles.” Then again, the 19-year-old could have just made the decision to not be present at her father’s nuptials because of their alleged strained relationship, which reportedly became even more strained when Bobby left Houston’s funeral early.

Brown began dating Alicia, who is also his manager, in May 2007, about one month after he ended his highly controversial marriage to Houston. In 2010, the couple got engaged.

According to Brown, his new lease on life is making him give up boozing and drugging. Time will tell!
