Bobby Brown Gets Married Without Bobbi Kristina Present

By Miranda Johnson

Bobby Brown has finally tied the knot with longtime girlfriend, Alicia Etheredge. Nearly 24 hours after jamming out with New Edition at a Honolulu, Hawaii show, the couple made things official, getting married in an intimate ceremony shared by family and friends.

Dressed in a red tux, paired with white Adidas sneakers, escorted by four young flower girls and 3-year-old son Cassius serving as ring bearer, Bobby took Etheredge’s hand in marriage. The couple was engaged back in 2010 when Bobby proposed during a sold-out New Edition show in Florida. Brown credits Etheredge with gifting him a new view on life, love, and happiness. The gracious groom also dedicated his new album The Masterpiece, which dropped June 5, to his new wife.

One person who did not make the ceremony was Brown’s 19-year-old daughter Bobbi Kristina. According to a source Bobby and Bobbi have not resolved their issues yet and she opted not to attend the ceremony. However even though the two may not be speaking now, Kristina’s dad has not given up hope that they will one day restore their relationship. Last month in an interview with MTV News Bobby spoke about his daughter, saying, “Any parent that has a teenager in their life, they go through things. They go through phases that they might not be doing exactly what you want them to do in life, but they grow out of it”.
