The Boston Herald reports that Brown has fallen $45,000 behind in child support payments for the two teenage children he had with former girlfriend Kim Ward.
A phone message was left for Brown's lawyer in Atlanta.
The 40-year-old Brown is a Boston native and ex-husband of Whitney Houston. He is supposed to pay $5,000 in child support per month for the children.
Brown was jailed for four days in 2007 for failing to make the payments.
