"After losing my mum, my dad, my ex-wife, my daughter in the last six years, it's been like, the only thing I've had to lean on was her (wife) and she's probably tired of me leaning on her, but she's held me up, she's got my back." Bobby Brown is grateful for the unwavering support of his manager-wife, Alicia Etheredge-Brown, through his many losses. He mourned the death of his first wife Whitney Houston in 2012 and tragically lost their daughter, Bobbi Kristina, in July (15), six months after she nearly drowned in a bathtub at her Georgia home.
