In court documents filed in Orange County yesterday, Brown explains that he was just too screwed up after the breakup to properly handle a custody battle. “After Whitney and I separated, I had nowhere to go and very little money to live on. I was, for all intents and purposes, homeless.” That’s why he failed to respond to Whitney’s petition for custody in time, and why she was ultimately deemed the primary parent.In Brown’s court filings yesterday, he begged the courts to reconsider, saying that, “I believe I have a wonderful relationship with my daughter Bobbi Kris — a relationship that I would like to see strengthen and grow.”
The singer, 43, told a Californian court that Brown was “unreliable” and their daughter could not depend on him.
A lawyer for Bobby Brown, 38, said he would appeal the judge’s decision.
I’m sure Whitney isn’t the greatest parent but kids with Bobby Brown just doesn’t make sense. Getting a dime sack for daddy doesn’t count as spending quality time.
