[artist id=”3624″]Bobby Brown[/artist] proposed to his girlfriend of nearly three years, Alicia Etheridge, onstage in Florida over the weekend.
Playing a show at the Funk Fest concert at Jacksonville’s Metro Park on Friday night, according to the Florida Times-Union, Brown was joined onstage by Etheridge with their 11-month-old son, Cassius, on hand. He then got on one knee and asked Etheridge, his manager, to marry him.
Speaking to the Florida Times-Union, fans said that the crowd went crazy when Brown popped the question. “We shouted, we screamed,” Carol Pearsall told the paper. “We supported him.” Her husband, Paul, added, “Hopefully he’ll get it right this time.”
Brown was very infamously married to R&B diva Whitney Houston for 15 years. The two have a daughter, Bobbi Kristina, 17. Brown, who appeared on “Celebrity Fit Club,” also has three other children from previous relationships.
While Brown has remained under the radar for the last few years, Houston released an album last year, I Look to You. During the publicity tour, she spoke openly about her troubled relationship with Brown. “He was my drug,” Houston, 46, said. “I didn’t do anything without him. I wasn’t getting high by myself. It was me and him together, and we were partners, and that’s what my high was — him. He and I being together, and whatever we did, we did it together. No matter what, we did it together.”
