Bobby Brown

Lester Cohen/

Being Bobby Brown just doesn't pay. And that's causing all kinds of problems.

Yet another arrest warrant has been issued in Massachusetts for the faded R&B star after he failed to appear in a courtroom back on June 29 to to explain why he's fallen behind on $45,000 in child support payments to baby mama Kim Ward, with whom he has two teenage children.

Where's that New Edition reunion tour when you need it?

Per the Boston Herald, Norfolk Probate and Family Court Judge Christina Harms ordered police to take Brown into custody on a contempt of court charge the next time he sets foot in his home state.

Since November, the "My Prerogative" singer has elected not to pony up the $5,000-a-month he owes his ex-girlffriend as part of his paternal obligations to Bobby Jr. and daughter Laprincia. Two years ago, Brown logged four days in a Massachusetts jail for failing to cough up child support to Ward.

No word on Brown's whereabouts. His rep wasn't reachable for comment today.

Last we saw him was in June, when he was onstage in Las Vegas announcing the latest addition to his brood, a son born with current gal-pal (and sometime manager) Alicia Etheridge.
