Bobby Brown To Pen Memoir, ‘My Prerogative’


Bobby Brown has signed a deal with Dey Street Books to pen a memoir, Billboard reports. Titled My Prerogative, the book is set to release in June 2016.

My Prerogative is the story of a man who has been on the top of the mountain and in the depths of the valley and who is now finally ready to talk about his career and family life, from the passion and the excess to his creative inspirations and massive musical success,” according to a statement issued through Dey Street Books.

In a statement, Brown said that right after he agreed to the book deal, he lost his 22-year-old daughter Bobbi Kristina, who was found face down in her bathtub back in January and later passed away in July. Throughout that heartbreaking time, Brown said that writing about life was actually therapeutic.

“…To look at the entire arc of my life and to realize that although there has been considerable pain, I have also been incredibly blessed,” Brown said. “I hope my fans and other readers of this book will be entertained by this trip into the crazy, exciting, fascinating world of Bobby Brown. And I hope they will feel that I have been as honest and open with them in these pages as I have tried to be my entire life.”

Dey Street Books has assured that it will discuss Brown’s tumultuous marriage with Whitney Houston.

The memoir will be co-written by Nick Chiles, who has also written a book with Rev. Al Sharpton.
