Father to the late Bobbi Kristina Bobby Brown, says it’s his duty to put the brakes on an upcoming TV biopic of his late daughter’s death that wrongly portrays him as an abusive and neglectful dad.
Bobby Brown, whose daughter with the late Whitney Houston had died tragically after she was found in an unconscious state in a bathtub in her home in Georgia, wants the court to stop the biopic “Bobbi Kristina,” from being aired.
The film, set to be on TV One next month, shows scenes of Mr. Brown being violent towards Whitney Houston and suggests that the singer has no love for his daughter and was not committed to his daughter Kristina,court documents which Bobby filed in a Manhattan Federal court claims .
He said the film is defamatory and untrue and tries to make financial gains off Brown’s pain, and insists that he was never abusive to his family.
Hassan Jonson plays the role of Bobby Brown in the biopic and is seen as a user of hard drugs who neglects his fatherly role after Whitney Houston’s death in 2012 when she was also found in her bathtub unconscious.
Bobby Brown alleges that the producers Tracey Baker-Simmons and Wanda Shelley took an unfair advantage of their previous work with the singer to make the movie.
Court papers say that the pair used information from a TV reality show, “Being Bobby Brown,” without the singer’s permission, he claims in the lawsuit.
Bobby Brown is also seeking damages to the tune of $1 million from his daughter’s biopic’s production companies, TV One LLC, Simmons Shelley entertainment, and their affiliates.
TV One says it is not backing down. They say they stand by the film and its representation thereof of that period in Bobbi Kristina’s life.This was made known by the production company in a statement and the film is already been promoted by the promoting company.A promo photo was included in the lawsuit.
