Bobby Brown Did The Dang Thang and Married Alicia Etheredge

June 19, 2012  |  

Bobby Brown just had the best weekend ever. While in Honolulu, the singer not only performed with New Edition for a concert and celebrated Father’s Day, he also made things official with his girlfriend/fiancée, Alicia Etheredge, and jumped the broom.

Close friends and family surrounded the couple during their nuptials, including Bobby’s older kids Landon, 23, La’Princia, 22, and Bobby Jr., 19. Bobby and Alicia’s son Cassius, who’s 3, served as the ring bearer and four young flower girls were also a part of the ceremony.

It was 43-year-old Bobby’s prerogative to wear a red suit and Adidas, matching his son, while Alicia was traditional in a destination wedding style white dress.

During an interview in 2011, Bobby told PEOPLE that Alicia had given him a new lease on life after divorcing Whitney Houston.

“I got my passion back for music and for loving myself because of her,” he said.

In 2010 he proposed to his girlfriend/manager in front of a sold out New Edition crowd In Jacksonville, FL, and now the couple’s relationship has come full circle with them getting hitched just 24 hours after a New Edition show in Hawaii.

Now, the pair says it’s back to business. For now, they have no honeymoon plans, but they’ll continue to travel on the New Edition tour which kicks off again June 23 in Oakland, CA.

As many news outlets had reported prior to the couple’s wedding, Bobbi Kristina did not in fact attend her father’s ceremony, with many sources saying their relationship is strained at the moment. Hopefully it will be on the mend soon.

  • Congrats to them. Bobby has come a long way and deserves to be happy. If she makes him happy, then great. I wish them a lifetime of happiness.

    Bobby Brown has done some pretty f****d up things in this past. But if this woman is willing to marry him despite all of those things, then maybe he’s a different man now. I’m sure she’s a pretty smart woman and with her looks, could probably get any man she wants. So I say God bless them, their marriage and their adorable 3 y/o they have together. It’s also good to read his older children were there too! I’m sure they are very proud and happy for their pops.

    Bobby’s first son was born in 1986 making him older than 23. Hope things work out well for them. Everyone deserves some happiness.

    Lawd, have mercy! Is he wearing Adidas shoes? The first sign that a marriage will go wrong, is a woman in a gorgeous gown, and a man in a pair of kicks.

    • Don’t hate the shoes. She leting Bobby be who he wish to be now that true love i wish them the best. Bobby Brown you are a true man doing it the right way much love to u.

    I feel so sorry for her….smh.

    My God. Why would any woman want to marry Bobby Brown? She is why you have so many Black women in situations they are today. Settling with crap, not a man. A man has a career and has had it for a while. He is good to his children, responsible, and also respectful to women. Of course no substance abuse. Bobby Brown violates all of this. My people my people, SMH.
