Singers Bobby Brown and Whitney Houston wed in 1992 and their stormy 14-year marriage and run-ins with the law were tabloid fodder for years. His troubles included drugs, late child support payments, a drunken driving conviction and a 2003 accusation that he hit Houston. Drug-use rumors dogged Houston in the 1990s, and she memorably said in an interview that "Crack is whack." In 2012, Brown left Houston's funeral early after getting into a fight over seating with Houston's family.
