Bobby Brown checked himself into a rehab center last week as part an agreement stemming from his March arrest for driving while drunk in Los Angeles, The Associated Press reports.

Although a representative for Brown did not reveal the name of the center Brown had entered, he noted that getting treatment for alcohol abuse was part of the R&B singer's plea deal following the DUI charge.  Brown's attorney Christopher Brown said in a statement that his client "takes his agreement very seriously."

The incident was not Brown's first DUI: He was previously convicted after getting arrested in Georgia in 1996. He plead guilty to the charge and served eight days in prison.

Brown's current stint in rehab won't affect upcoming performances with New Edition, which start September 19th on Long Island.

“You Oughta Know”

Alanis Morissette | 1995

This blunt, bitter breakup song -- famous for its line "Would she go down on you in a theater?" -- was long rumored to be about Alanis Morissette getting dumped by Full House actor Dave Coulier. But while she never confirmed it was about him (Coulier himself says it is, however), she insisted the song wasn't all about scorn. "By no means is this record just a sexual, angry record," she told Rolling Stone. "The song wasn't written for the sake of revenge. It was written for the sake of release. I'm actually a pretty rational, calm person."
