It's Over! Whitney and Bobby split
The tumultuous marriage of Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown -- which withstood drug addiction, Brown's numerous arrests, the decline of Houston's once-sparkling image and domestic abuse allegations -- is coming to an end.
A publicist for Houston confirmed to The Associated Press that the Grammy-winning, superstar singer had filed for divorce after 14 years of marriage.
Publicist Nancy Seltzer declined to reveal where or when Houston filed the divorce papers, and said the singer had no statement to make.
"I can just confirm that she has filed for divorce," Seltzer said Wednesday.
Brown's lawyer said Houston had filed papers for a legal separation.
Houston and Brown, who had a home in Alpharetta, Georgia, have one child, a 13-year-old daughter, Bobbi Kristina.
