Los Angeles - Bobby Brown is "doing well" in rehab.

The 43-year-old singer entered an undisclosed facility last week and his lawyer has now revealed he agreed to seek help as part of a deal struck following his arrest for driving under the influence (DUI) in March.

Attorney Christopher Brown said in a statement: "Mr. Brown takes his agreement very seriously and admitted himself three weeks after concluding his honeymoon in Mexico during a break from the New Edition tour.

"Bobby is doing well and receiving services that comply with his agreement with the State of California."

'Very proud of him'

Bobby's new wife Alicia Etheredge said she and the singer's children - three-year-old Cassius from their relationship, 19-year-old Bobbi Kristina with late ex-wife Whitney Houston, and Landon, 23, La'Princia, 22, and Bobby Jr, 19, with previous partners - are "proud" of him for seeking help.

She said: "Bobby's children and loved ones are very proud of him. We appreciate his fans prayers and well wishes. Bobby is mentally in a good place."

However, despite Alicia's comments, Bobbi Kristina appears unconvinced by his rehab stint.

Asked if he is "rising above" his problems, she told website TMZ: "Rise above is not the word you should use. Not at all."
