Bobby Brown

Every little step Bobby Brown takes these days leads him back to court.

The erstwhile King of New Jack Swing is being sued by his former divorce attorneys for allegedly failing to pay a $90,217 legal tab covering expenses related to his divorce battle with ex-wife Whitney Houston.

The complaint, filed in Los Angeles Superior Court on Aug. 15 by the law firm Phillips, Lerner, Lauzon & Jamra, claims Brown signed a written agreement stipulating that in the event of a dispute over fees,he would submit to binding arbitration to resolve the matter.

The lawyers claimed to have notified Brown on numerous occasions, most recently in a letter dated June 29, that he was past due in paying the balance legal services rendered during the dissolution of his marriage, including interest on the balance. But those missives went unanswered.

The suit seeks a court order forcing the entertainer and sometime reality star to enter into binding arbitration with either the Beverly Hills or Los Angeles bar association to settle the bill.
