Houston and Brown to divorce?

Several published reports, citing a source close to couple Bobby Brown and Whitney Houston, say the celebrities are heading to divorce court.

The New York Daily News reports that R&B singer Brown, 36, told friends that he plans to file for divorce from Houston, 42, after a several years of an infamously tumultuous marriage.

The article also said that earlier this month, Brown, a former New Edition band member was seen flirting with a group of ladies backstage at a concert featuring R&B groups at the Foxwoods Casino in Connecticut.

Both Brown and Houston are the focus of tabloid stories, usually surrounding their admitted drug and alcohol battles. Two years ago, police charged Brown with misdemeanor battery after he allegedly assaulted Houston in their Georgia home, according to news services.

The couple has a daughter, Bobbi Kristina, 12.
