TV One Responds To Bobby Brown’s Lawsuit Over Bobbi Kristina Biopic

Published: Wednesday 13th Sep 2017 by Rashad

Much like they voiced a strong disapproval of Lifetime’s 2015 biographical movie on Whitney Houston, simply titled ‘Whitney,’ the pop icon’s family is expressing similar opposition to the forthcoming biopic based on her daughter, Bobbi Kristina.

As we reported here, TV One is gearing up to air Bobbi’s life story in an unauthorized, made-for-TV film to chronicle her demise up to her untimely death in 2015 at the young age of 22.  Titled ‘Bobbi Kristina,’ the flick is set to hit screens on October 8th, but may never see the light of day if Kristina’s father – singer Bobby Brown – has his say.

Joining forces with his late daughter’s estate, Brown’s brought forth a lawsuit to stop the film from airing:

Via TMZ:

Bobby has already filed suit, claiming the portrayal as a bad dad is defamatory.

Bobbi Kristina’s estate has now joined the lawsuit, claiming the biopic violates Bobbi Kristina’s right to privacy, which they claim survived her death.

Bobby Brown has already claimed in his lawsuit the movie falsely shows him as a violent person toward Whitney Houston. The show suggests Bobbi Kristina witnessed the alleged abuse. He also claims the scenes show him as an unloving father.

The estate and Bobby want more than $2 million in damages and they want the judge to block the airing of the show.

TV One recently responded by saying:

“We are aware of the reported legal challenge by Bobby Brown regarding the film Bobbi Kristina and are taking appropriate steps on behalf of our network to respond. While we are not able to address our legal response at this time, we stand by the film and its representation of this period in Bobbi Kristina’s life.”

    Whitney should’ve got help

      She did get help. Multiple times. But crack is a very strong drug. And she lost her voice & marriage so she pretty much gave up. She did get clean for her comeback but like one of her friends said… She had no life without her voice. And it was gone and she was heartbroken seeing Bobby Brown with a another woman. So she went back to drugs and killed herself. Just like Bobbi K did b/c Whitney was her whole life.

        Thank you. It annoys me when people say, “She should have got help”. This movie should not exist. There is no reason to make a biopic on Bobbi K, besides salacious entertainment

    I’m still surprised that VIvica is so thirsty for film roles that she did this.

      She needs to pay for her next surgery

    I hope he wins. TVOne should be ashamed of themselves, but this new generation has no clue about the concept of shame. This movie should not see the light of day period.

    Zero respect for people’s privacy.
    What’s wrong with these networks thinking they can infringe on people’s life with no say?!
    I swear people are getting too bold now!
