Bobby Brown Sues To Halt TV One Broadcast of Bobby Kristina Biopic
A made for TV movie depicting the short life and tragic death of Bobbi Kristina Brown—the only daughter of Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown—is now at the center of a libel and slander lawsuit filed by the R&B recording star.
Brown is suing to halt the October 8 release of the biopic, Bobbi Kristina, which is set for broadcast on TV One.
Brown is seeking over $1 million in damages over his depiction in the film as abusive towards Whitney Houston and as a hard drug user. Brown is also taking issue with scenes in the film that portray him as unloving of his daughter.
According to The Blast, which first reported the story, Brown is claiming that the production used information they obtained while working with him on his 2004 reality show, “Being Bobby Brown” and used it in the film without his permission.
The film stars newcomer Joy Rovaris as Bobbi Kristina in a supporting cast that includes Vivica Fox (portraying Whitney’s sister-in-law, Pat Houston) and Demetria McKinney portraying Whitney.
