The singer will be thrown in jail if he is found in Massachusetts

An arrest warrant has been issued in Massachusetts for singer Bobby Brown.

A Norfolk judge issued the warrant when the former husband of Whitney Houston failed to appear in court to answer charges of failing to pay child support to his ex-girlfriend Kim Ward.

Brown, 40, is supposed be paying $5,500 in child support for his two teenage children, and has fallen $45,000 behind, reports the Associated Press. He is to be placed under arrest if he sets foot in the state.

Brown was jailed two years ago for failing to make the payments.
