Bobby Brown gets engaged to Alicia Etheridge in Jacksonville

Tbd-bobbybrown051110 If you ditched Tampa Bay this weekend to enjoy the cooler weather and Funk Fest in Jacksonville this weekend, then you already know that Bobby Brown is now engaged to his girlfriend and manager, Alicia Etheridge. Why didn't the rest of you tell us before now?

Etheridge brought the couple's 11-month-old son Cassius onstage Friday night, where Bobby got on one knee and popped the question to the crowd's roaring approval. The couple have been together for three years.

“We shouted, we screamed,” local Carol Pearsall told the Florida Times-Union. “We supported him.”

Her husband Paul had a take more in line with how we feel about Bobby after his 15 years of marriage to Whitney Houston: "Hopefully he'll get it right this time."
