Whitney Houston filed for divorce from Bobby Brown this week in Southern California’s Orange County Superior Court, her publicist Nancy Seltzer confirms. The move is hardly unexpected – Houston, 43, filed for legal separation from her husband of 14 years on Sept. 8, and at the time Seltzer told PEOPLE, “We’re saying she filed for divorce because that is (Whitney’s) intent.”
In the separation papers, Houston had asked for custody of the couple’s 13-year-old daughter, Bobbi Kristina, and that Brown, 37, be allowed visitation rights, the Associated Press reports.
Brown’s attorney, Phaedra Parks, declined to comment to the AP on the divorce filing, though earlier Parks had said that Brown was having a “very difficult” time with the separation.
If only she could of left this loser a long time ago. This is Whitney performing- It’s Not Right, But It’s Okay at the 1999 Brit Awards.
