Months after losing daughter Bobbi Kristina under eerily similar circumstances to ex-wife Whitney Houston, singer Bobby Brown allegedly checked into rehab following reports that he's set become a father for the seventh time.

"Bob is in rehab," a source close to the 47-year-old told Confidenti@l, adding that the singer is believed to be seeking help for cocaine and alcohol in a California facility.

When asked to verify the claim, Brown's attorney denied that the R&B star is being treated for alcohol and cocaine use, later declining to answer if it was for substance abuse of any kind.

Instead, Brown's lawyer shared that he is set to perform in Charleston, S.C., on March 4.

Of course, the "On Our Own" hit-maker has struggled with substance abuse for many years, previously admitting to using alcohol, heroin and cocaine.

Meanwhile, Brown's wife, Alicia Etheredge, didn't respond to a request for comment regarding his possible rehab stint.

Etheredge is due to give birth to her third child with Brown this summer, nearly one year after 22-year-old Bobbi Kristina's tragic death.
