Bobby Brown says he once beat his ex-wife

Los Angeles, June 9 (IANS) Singer Bobby Brown has revealed he once hit his ex-wife Whitney Houston during their 15-year marriage, but he has never been a “woman beater.”

The “Candy Girl” hitmaker has revealed he lashed out at the late star on one occasion during their 15-year marriage while he was trying to maintain his sobriety, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

Bobby explained he had struck the singer at a time when he was “trying to maintain sobriety” but insisted he was not “violent”.

Speaking of the incident, which he details in his forthcoming memoir “Every Little Step”, in an interview, he added: “I have never been a violent man toward a woman ever”.

The 47-year-old singer was married to Houston, who tragically passed away in 2012 at the age of 48 from an accidental drug overdose, from 1992 until 2007 when the pop diva filed for divorce and received custody of their then-14-year-old daughter Bobbi Kristina.

Nick Jonas favours ‘low key’ first date

Los Angeles, June 9 (IANS) Singer Nick Jonas prefers to have a “low key” first date rather than making it lavish so that he can get to know his new love interest.

The “Jealous” hitmaker — who previously dated model Olivia Culpo and has been romantically linked with names like Lily Collins and Kate Hudson — thinks there is too much “pressure” for a first evening with someone to be “magical”, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

Asked about his preferred first date, he told Heat magazine: “I would like it to be really low key. I think there is this thing that happens where, with a first date, there is just this immense amount of pressure on both sides that it just has to be kind of magical”.

“But the whole purpose is to get to know somebody, get a vibe going and then, from there, you kind of decide, ‘Alright, do we want to do this again?’ It’s like the first course,” he said, adding that he prefers “a nice low-key dinner, maybe a drink afterwards, and then that’s perfect”.
