R&B star and expectant father Bobby Brown is seeking treatment in rehab, according to a US report.

The My Prerogative singer, who has had past issues with drink and drugs, is seeking help for an addiction, according to the New York Daily News.

His lawyer denied reports suggesting he was in treatment for alcohol and cocaine use, but refused to give an answer when asked if Brown was in a facility to help him with a substance abuse problem.

He simply stated Brown would be performing in Charleston, South Carolina on March 4.

The singer previously went into rehab in 2012 to treat alcohol abuse, but went to jail in 2013 on drink-driving charges.

He was released after nine hours and ordered to complete an alcohol program as part of his probation.

The news comes just days after it was confirmed he is going to be a father for the seventh time.
