Singer Bobby Brown (pictured) has joined the ranks of celebrities who have taken their beef with the National Enquirer in to a court of law. The crooner reportedly filed a $1 million lawsuit on Monday at a Manhattan federal court against the publishing giant and Derrick Handspike, who authored “Bobby Brown: The Truth, The Whole Truth and Nothing But…,” for allegedly leaking the story to the supermarket tabloid that he had plans in place to remarry his former wife, the late Whitney Houston, weeks before her death, according to the New York Daily News.

The story ran on March 26th of last year, six weeks after Houston’s tragic death, where she was found drowned in a bathtub at a Beverly Hills hotel after she reportedly overdosed on a cocktail of prescription drugs.

Brown also took offense to the fact that the story claimed he was cheating on his then-fiancee, Alicia Etheredge, with Houston. Brown and Etheredge tied the knot just three months after the story ran in the National Enquirer at a lavish Hawaiian ceremony.

The lawsuit comes on the heels of a mandated 55-day prison stint that Brown had to serve, after recently surrendering to authorities in Los Angeles for charges stemming from a previous DUI and driving with a suspended license charges.  Luckily for the 44-year-old crooner, due to prison overcrowding, the L.A. County Sheriff’s department decided to release Brown early after having only served nine hours.

Brown is still on probation for four years, though, and has been mandated by a judge to attend Alcoholics Anonymous meetings for 18 months.
