Bobby Brown Pays Up, Gets Out of Jail

Bobby Brown was released from jail after paying $19,000 in late child support and court fees on Wednesday night.

The singer spent three nights in the Norfolk County Jail, and he was scheduled to appear in Norfolk Probate and Family Court late Thursday.

Bobby, 38, has a long history of failing to pay support in a timely fashion, which is why he was jailed until he anteed up the appropriate funds.

On Thursday, Brown’s attorney, Phaedra Parks, said the singer had been struggling to make monthly payments to Kim Ward, the mother of his two teenage children.

"Although this agreement was put in place when he was Bobby Brown the star, this agreement is being enforced when he is not always able to find work," Parks told The Associated Press. "He hasn't made an album in quite some years."
