Bobby Brown Says TV One Is Capitalizing On His Grief In New “Bobbi Kristina” Biopic
(AllHipHop News) Singer Bobby Brown has filed a legal motion in an attempt to protect his family's name.
Bobby filed a $1 million lawsuit against TV One, over the upcoming biopic “Bobbi Kristina,” which is based on the New Edition member's daughter with Whitney Houston.
Bobbi Kristina was just 22-years-old when she was found dead in her bathtub in Georgia in July of 2015 under suspicious circumstances.
Many believed her boyfriend Nick Gordon had something to do with Bobbi’s death and although he was never charged, he was ordered to pay $36 million in a wrongful death lawsuit.
TV One is planning a special that is supposed to air next month.
According to reports, Bobby Brown claims the movie falsely depicts him as a father who “does not love his daughter [and is not] committed to his daughter.”
Bobby also says TV One is capitalizing off of his grief and suffering over the untimely deaths of his wife and daughter.
Tragically, Whitney also died from a drug overdose in her bathtub at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in February of 2012.
Bobby Brown may be in for a long, legal battle, since TV One is not backing down, in a statement issued to E!
In a statement, TV One said they “stand by the film and its representation of this period in Bobbi Kristina’s life.”
