Bobby, Bobby, Brown… He has had many bouts of not paying child support in the past, but one of his most recent came in 2007 when he went to jail for owing $20K to his ex, Kim Ward. He was bailed out by a DC radio station in exchange for interviews and appearances. #Priorities

T. freakin’ O. He and his children’s mothers went on the Dr. Phil show to talk about how he was a deadbeat, and he cried his Terrell Owen tears because he used to be a millionaire and then he couldn’t pay his child support because of his poor money management. And due to that, he had to do community service since he failed to pay.
