Brown and his
current wife fiance’, Alicia Etheridge, struggled through a hoard of hungry paparazzi and the emotional singer even got into a small shoving match with a cameraman before making it to their awaiting vehicle.
The “My Perogative” singer has reportedly left his reunion tour with New Edition and promptly flew to Los Angeles after his distraught daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown, was briefly hospitalized yesterday after the death of mother Whitney Houston at the age 48.
Brown took to the stage in Mississippi just moments after learning of his ex-wife’s untimely passing, performing about 10 songs with his group before breaking with emotion as the concert wound down.
It was during his performance of “Tenderoni,” that Brown’s voice cracked as he seemed to remember his ex-wife. He then waved to the fans and walked off stage. The show ended shortly afterward.

“Obviously, the death of her mother is affecting her, however, we will get through this tragedy as a family,” he said in a statement to Extra. “Again, I ask for privacy during this time.”
