Family court judge Christina Harms ordered Brown, 40, arrested next time he is in the state and brought to her court after he failed to appear at a court appointment, the reports said.

Brown helped pioneer the new jack swing music style in the 1980s and had a No. 1 hit with “My Prerogative” in 1988. His marriage to singer Whitney Houston ended in divorce in 2007.

He has a history of legal troubles, having been arrested several times on charges that have included battery, drunken driving and parole violation.

This latest arrest warrant stems from a child support case for two children from a different relationship, the Boston Herald newspaper reported.
