TV One Responds to Bobby Brown’s Lawsuit
Bobby Brown says TV One is defaming him with their upcoming biopic about his deceased daughter Bobbi Kristina by portraying him as abusive towards his deceased ex-wife Whitney Houston.
He’s so upset that he slapped the network with a lawsuit and he’s demanding that TV One doesn’t move forward and air the film.
Now TV One has responded and the network says they are just going by the material Bobby allegedly put out himself in his book.
The Blast writes:
The producers of the upcoming biopic on the life of Bobbi Kristina Brown claim Bobby Brown‘s lawsuit to try and stop the film from being released has one small problem … Bobby Brown himself has said it’s true!
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, TV One and the producers of “Bobbi Kristina” claim Brown has made reference to abusing Whitney Houston in his own autobiography, “Every Little Step.”
The producers site the book several times in the lawsuit. In one instance, they claim Brown wrote, “I turned around to her, drew back my hand, and smacked her on the face.”
Reflecting on the time when Bobbi Kristina was in a coma, Brown wrote, “[W]ere there things that she saw in the way I treated her mother that made her more likely to stay in what I knew had to be an abusive relationship.”
At another point in the book, Brown says that Bobbi Kristina “often saw her mother and father high and was around the two of us when we were f***ed up.”
