Whitney's ex Bobby to tie the knot in Hawaii

Whitney's ex Bobby to tie the knot in Hawaii

Bobby Brown will marry in Hawaii on the weekend of June 15.

The New Edition musician and his fiancee Alicia Etheridge - who have been engaged for two years and have a son Cassius, who will turn three later this month - will tie the knot in Honolulu on the same weekend he performs on the island with his band.

According to gossip website TMZ, Bobby will also fly out some of his family and friends to witness the ceremony he has dubbed his "big day".

It is doubtful whether his estranged daughter Bobbi Kristina, 19 - his only child with former wife Whitney Houston - will attend.

Although Bobby has been engaged to Alicia for two years, it was recently claimed he and Whitney - who died in a Beverly Hills hotel room in February - had been planning to remarry in an intimate ceremony in Las Vegas with Bobbi Kristina as their only witness.

Author Derrick Handspike - who wrote Bobby's biography - said: "Bobby told me, 'Whitney and me are getting married again.'

"They were planning a small wedding, probably in Las Vegas with just the two of them and their daughter Krissi. Bobby told me, 'The world may have thought we were history, but the reality is we were never really apart. We've never stopped loving each other.'

"After his dad's funeral in Boston in December he flew to Atlanta. For the next week Bobby holed up at Whitney's home, where they rekindled their romance and their intimate relationship. They slept together in Whitney's bedroom and talked about what kind of wedding they'd have."
