Who else thought Bobby Brown and his manager/baby mama, Alicia Etheridge were already married? The lovebirds made it official during an intimate ceremony in Hawaii over the weekend. Bobby’s son, Bobby Jr. tweeted this pic on Instagram.

According to E! Online, all of Bobby’s children, except his estranged daughter Bobbi Kristina, attended the ceremony. Bobbi was reportedly shooting scenes with her boyfriend Nick Gordon in New York for her forthcoming Lifetime reality series, The Houston Chronicles.

BK reportedly stopped talking to her father after the sudden death of her mother Whitney Houston on Feb. 11 in Las Vegas.

Bobby and Alicia have one son together, Cassius, 3.

    Facebook co-founder Mark Zuckerberg, 28, married his longtime girlfriend, Priscilla Chan, in a secret ceremony at their $7 million Palo Alto, CA home on Saturday — one day after his Facebook IPO made him $10 billion dollars richer.

    But the Zuckerbergs’ honeymoon is already over.

    Just 2 days after Facebook’s Wall Street underwriters scrambled to purchase over 300 million shares to keep Facebook’s IPO afloat at $38, the stock opened 2 percent lower in pre-market trading this morning.

    The social network made history with it’s initial public offering on Friday, but Morgan Stanley, Facebook’s chief underwriter, was forced to buy millions of shares to keep the stock at it’s opening price. While that type of stock manipulation may sound illegal, it is perfectly legal according to Wall Street analysts.

    Now there are new concerns that Facebook stocks will start trading at below it’s IPO value when the bell rings on Wall Street at 9:30 a.m. If that happens, small time investors who purchased the stock on Friday will lose big.

    Valentine’s Day is the one day out of the year when real men go all out to express their love for their faithful and submissive women. But rapper T.I. doesn’t wait for valentine’s Day, he expresses his love and gratitude for Tiny all year ’round. So what does a man give as a Valentine’s gift to his wife who already has everything? Why not give her roses that are taller than she is, that are only grown in specific parts of the country and must be flown in on ice?

    In addition to the flowers, T.I. also hired a musician to serenade Tiny at an intimate dinner at home. And he filled the house with flowers, as well as gifts from Louis Vuitton, Gucci, and other high end shops. Isn’t LOVE Grand? :yes:
