Superstar Shocker: Bobby Brown Pays Child Support!

TV hubby and superstar recording artist Bobby Brown wins big headlines for zany activities like urinating on police cars and walloping wacky wife Whitney Houston.

But CL’s exclusive sources say the R&B legend pulled an even bigger stunt last week at a Midtown supermarket: He mailed a child-support payment! Professional gumshoes, investigative journalists and other followers of Brown’s exploits know the master of soul has visited family courts on countless occasions. Usually, it’s to face charges for shortchanging any of his 56 “baby-mamas” or their 137 children.

So when he was spotted Sept. 24 dropping a payment in a mailbox near the Kroger on Ponce De Leon Avenue, he stunned and stupified shocked supermarket shoppers.

“I just couldn’t believe it!” said Hilda Hindenburg of Helen. “I saw him putting a stamp on the envelope and, at that moment, I knew everyone in hell was enjoying an unseasonable snowstorm!”

Some witnesses contend Brown actually was depositing a Georgia Power bill — not a check for his children. But Hindenburg says she used special X-ray sunglasses to confirm that the money was going to Brown’s 42nd oldest son, one Gary Coleman of Oakland, Calif.

“Hell yeah, it was a child support check,” declared Beauregard Lamar of Jesup. “He threw the envelope into the mail slot and I asked him, ‘Is that a Georgia Power bill?’ He looked me dead I the eye and said, ‘Hell to the no!’ Then he peed on my shoe!”
