Bobby Brown Dispels Rumors, Goes Solo For Good

September 4 [13:00 EDT] -- Singer Bobby Brown takes aim at the rumors that arose when his wife Whitney Houston returned from a boating trip with a cut on her cheek during the couple's recent second honeymoon in Italy.

As Brown tells it in the October issue of "Sister To Sister" magazine, due out next week, Houston stood up too fast after having lunch, broke a plate, and got sliced on the cheek by a piece of flying crockery.

Brown also announces that making the recent New Edition reunion album and doing the subsequent promotional tour were such unpleasant experiences for him that he's decided he'll never work with them again.

Instead, he's talking up his new solo album "Forever," which will be out next month.
