Station pulls former 'Being Bobby Brown' star's child support money
UPI News Service, 03/05/2007
Bobby Brown's broadcasting gig ended as a Washington radio station rescinded its offer to pay his back child support so he could be released from jail.
Radio station WIHT-FM said it was working with Brown's lawyer to have the money returned, The (Quincy, Mass.) Patriot Ledger said Monday. The radio station last week paid more than $19,000 in back child support to Kim Ward to free Brown from a Massachusetts jail. In exchange, Brown was to have worked for a week on-air and off for the station.
Brown denied the employment portion of their agreement during an on-air phone conversation with his would-be boss Friday, hanging up on him, the Ledger reported.
The station announced on its Web site during the weekend that it had withdrawn its offer to help Brown and that his attorney had agreed to return the money.
"There are better things we can do with the money locally," the radio station said on its Web site.
