El DeBarge was arrested for possession of narcotics in a Los Angeles suburb on Monday afternoon, just one month after he talked to Whitney Houston about their addiction.

According to E! Online, El DeBarge is out on $30,000 bail and awaits an April 9 court date.

It’s a big setback for the singer, who was sentenced to two years in prison in 2008 for possessing crack and drug paraphernalia and violating probation (from a previous drug bust) and had been arrested two other times since 2001.

El DeBarge scotched a comeback tour last year, checking into rehab instead.

Last month, El DeBarge talked about meeting with his friend Whitney Houston days before her death.

“She was telling me, <<I miss you El>> and we started crying together,” El DeBarge told The Boombox at the Grammys, where he was nominated for Best R&B Album.

“She wanted to talk to me about her addiction, I could tell she did, and we just didn’t get our chance to.


“Drugs are a very strong, outside aggression.

“That’s what it is. It attacks leadership and it just attacks things and it gives you a challenge that you really don’t want to have but you have to be strong and we all have the strength.”
