Bobby Brown Comforted by Mike Tyson

Bobby Brown is getting back into the bachelor swing of things. Just two weeks after announcing his separation from Whitney Houston, Brown took his single self to the Las Vegas strip.

Brown arrived in Sin City on Friday and partied at Pure nightclub at Caesars Palace.

On Saturday, the soon to be ex-Mr. Houston was spotted with former World Heavyweight Champion Mike Tyson. The two were in good spirits and greeted fans as they made their way through the Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino.

We wonder what Whitney would say about her estranged husband hanging out with a convicted rapist and notorious ear biter. Actually, we know what she'd say -- "Hell to the no!"

Bobby drives too hard a bargain

Now that Whitney Houston has filed for divorce, R&B crooner Bobby Brown has to plan for a future without a rich wife.

I hear that the 37-year-old Brown - who reportedly has been staying in L.A. with "Video Vixen" Karinne Steffans since separating from Houston - would appear on the African-American-oriented cable channel TV One only in exchange for a car.

Producers of the TV One reality series "I Married a Baller" - an inside look at the marriages of sports figures - invited Brown last week to have an on-camera lunch with former Tennessee Titans player Eddie George and his wife, Brown's old friend Tamara (Taj) George of the R&B group SWV.

"When he asked for a car, we actually thought he meant for us to book him car service, and I told the producers to set it up," the show's executive producer, Datari Turner, told Daily News contributor Jawn Murray. "But then I was told that he actually wanted us to buy him a car!"

Brown's longtime friend and occasional rep, Ray Pouncey, told TV One that Brown was new to Los Angeles and didn't have wheels, so a car would be the ideal payment instead of an appearance fee. Brown apparently wanted Taj to formally present the vehicle to him on the show as a gift.

"I was open to it at first and wanted to know what price range he was looking for, because for the standard appearance fee we could have gotten him a 1997 Ford Expo or maybe a 1995 Pathfinder," Datari said. "Maybe even a month-long rental car. But we knew he wanted something new, so we had to pass on booking him."

Looks like Brown overplayed his hand: Even though the standard appearance fee is less than $1,000, he might have used his celeb wattage to squeeze as much as $10,000 out of the show, according to a producer.

Bobby's Atlanta-based attorney, Phaedra Parks, and his manager-brother, Tommy Brown, initially denied that such a conversation took place. Parks later acknowledged that Pouncey had indeed discussed a car for Brown - "but he was joking, and he says it's been taken out of context," she told me yesterday. "Obviously Ray doesn't represent Bobby, and he's not part of his management team."

Bobby Brown: 'I'm Saddened' by Divorce

Commenting for the first time about his split from Whitney Houston, Bobby Brown tells PEOPLE, "I'm really saddened by the whole situation."

Brown spoke to PEOPLE on his cell phone from Boston, where he'd flown in from Los Angeles to celebrate the 17th birthday of his eldest daughter, Laprincia (with ex-girlfriend Kim Ward).

He also caught a Mike Epps show with a group of pals at Boston's Comedy Connection on Sunday night. A source tells PEOPLE that Brown seemed to be in good spirits, mingling with the crowd of 500 and taking a picture with Epps after the show.

Houston, 43, filed for legal separation from Brown, 39, on Sept. 8. However, her rep, Nancy Seltzer, told PEOPLE, "We're saying she filed for divorce because that is her intent."

Houston and Brown were married for 14 years and have one daughter, Bobbi Kristina, 13. Divorce proceedings are expected to begin next month.

In her filing, Houston reportedly asked that she get custody of Bobbi Kristina and that Brown be allowed visitation rights.

Bobby Brown To Reunite With New Edition

R&B star Bobby Brown has stunned fans by choosing to announce his pending reunion with former boy band New Edition on the same day his estranged wife Whitney Houston filed for legal separation two weeks ago.

Brown, who rocketed to fame with the 1980s pop hunks, is planning to hit the stage with them for a one-off gig in the run-up to Christmas.

His agent tells the New York Daily News, "He will be reuniting with the original members of New Edition for a one-time concert at the Forum in Los Angeles on December 9, 2006."

Whitney Houston seeks divorce from Bobby Brown

After a 14-year marriage marked by bizarre public behavior, wild tabloid headlines and brushes with the law, pop superstar Whitney Houston is seeking a divorce from celebrity husband Bobby Brown.

Houston's attorney, Mark Trigg, confirmed Wednesday she had filed a petition for separation in California, where she is working on a comeback album. "Under California state law, if you haven't been a resident for six months, you must first file a petition for separation. But Ms. Houston considers this a divorce action."

served with the legal papers but did not have any additional comment.

Houston and Brown have been Atlanta's most transfixing celebrity couple for much of the past decade, playing out much of their roller coaster relationship on a public level shocking even by showbiz standards,not just on stages, but even in the warts-and-all family dynamic they displayed on their own reality TV show.

The couple, who has a 13-year-old daughter, Bobbi Kristina, owns a $1.35 million home in Alpharetta's gated Country Club of the South. And they became familiar guests around town at ritzy restaurants such as Palm, Prime and Chopstix, at the Ritz-Carlton Buckhead, and at family outings at Dave & Buster's in Duluth.

Vibe Dump Christina Aguilera from Cover for Bobby Brown

Despite a number 1 album in the US Christina Aguilera has reportedly been dumped from the cover of Vibe magazine in favour on Bobby Brown.

Aguilera took part in an interview and photo shoot for the magazine's October edition; however, after a change in regime at the magazine Brown was instead picked to grace the cover leaving Christina out in the cold with her pictures being relegated to the online version of the music mag

Unsurprisingly, Christina's people went nuts when they heard the news and sent Vibe a bitter letter alleging breach of contract.

October Issue Of Vibe Magazine

Don't call it a comeback. Bobby Brown's been here for years. But is the "King of Stage" really ready to reclaim his realm? While his wife struggles with drug addiction and he tries to work his issues out onstage, one painful question remains: can Bobby and Whitney face the music-together?

Yeah, it's me-the crazy one."//Bobby Brown, a half grin on his sweat-beaded face, addresses a vacant outdoor arena on this scorching Southern California afternoon. His band thumps, his dancers bounce, and Brown stands alone before the microphone stand, peeling off his Kareem Abdul-Jabbar throwback, exposing the muscular chest of a pop star and the pot belly of a 37-year-old father of four. It's July 15, 2006, and way up in the hills of L.A.'s Griffith Park, inside the Greek Theatre, Bobby Brown-the man who once reigned as the King of Stage, an epic, flawed Dionysian hero, has come back to the only home he truly knows.

Later tonight he'll be headlining a KHHT (Los Angeles) Hot92 Jamz-sponsored '90s-revival concert featuring three groups that have sold over 6 million records between them: En Vogue, SWV, and New Edition spin-off Bell Biv DeVoe. But even though he's the main attraction tonight, Brown carries himself like a man who, twenty years after he left New Edition, senses his last chance may be at hand. His band stomps through "Two Can Play That Game" (Bobby, MCA, 1992), re-creating superproducer Teddy Riley's trademark new jack swing sound: staccato drum hits and synth chops under glossy minor-key harmonies. Four curvaceous dancers follow the lead of a wiry choreographer named Life, who's known Brown since their street-dancing days in New York.
