Bobby Brown

Here comes trouble Bobby Brown's every little step: The youngest member of New Edition was also its most volatile. He was arrested in 2003 for misdemeanor battery; it was alleged he hit Whitney Houston. Then in February 2004, Brown was thrown in jail in Georgia on a parole violation related to a previous drunk driving conviction. He and Houston have since divorced. Chris Brown doesn't really stomp the yard: Squeaky clean has been the path of pop's krump king. Good kid from Virginia. Nice voice, nice smile and he has contributed a lot of time to St. Jude's Children Hospital. But an arrest and allegations of domestic abuse have dirtied up his clean image. -- Jevon PhillipsDavid Fitzgerald / Los Angeles Times / Getty Images
