UPDATE-Bobby Brown is reportedly shopping a tell all. If his relationship with daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown and Whitney Houston’s family was strained enough – it’s about to get worst.
In 2008 Brown reportedly shopped around a tell-all about his life with ex-wife Whitney Houston but there were no biters. Since the tragic passing of the 48-year old superstar on February 11th, things have changed.
“Back in 2008, the interest in a book on Whitney Houston wasn’t that great,” a major publisher told the Huffington Post. “Whitney had fallen off the radar back then … but now, following her tragic death, the market has changed. Now is the time for a book that details an honest look into the life of Whitney.”
On the one hand Bobby Brown, who’s single handily been given the role of the villain in the downfall of the greatest voice of this generation, may try to clear his name. However it’s hard to imagine that this is more about putting his life back together and less about hoping to make a quick buck. Reportedly Bobby signed a confidentiality agreement after his divorce – which makes the 2008 release more puzzling.
Real Housewives of Atlanta star Phaedra Parks who once represented Brown may be the lone one standing in his corner if this book is released when she stated after the funeral, “Bobby loves all his children. He would do anything to protect all his children.”
On the flip side friends of the Houston family had this to say,
“This is a man who left his ex-wife’s funeral because he didn’t like his seats and went to a paying gig that night. He didn’t get on stage that night because he needed to sing his greatest hits or because Whitney would have wanted him to entertain his fans, he did it to get a paycheck — the same reason he now wants to write a tell-all book.”
Not many people truly know what went on behind close doors of Bobby Brown and Whitney Houston’s 14 year marriage but it doesn’t take a genius to know this book would do more harm than good…especially to Bobbi Kristina. Brown’s only daughter with Whitney is already dealing with the media focusing too heavily on Whitney’s heartbreaking downfall and less on her tremendous talent – it will be tragic to have her father do the same.
Update: Bobby Brown according to LALate did succeed in publishing ‘Bobby Brown: The Truth, the Whole Truth and Nothing But’ in 2008 but it was never released.

BOBBY PLEASE USE COMMON SENSE AND FORGIVENESS. DON’T RELEASE A BOOK THAT WILL HURT YOUR DAUGHTER, RATHER FOCUS ON HER RECOVERY AND TREATMENT! STOP LOOKING AT EVERYTHING AS A PAYCHECK OR A WAY TO GET EVEN….. FOCUS ON YOUR BABY GIRL’S PEACE OF MIND AND GROWING STRONGER…. AND YOU COULD OF STAYED AT THE FUNERAL TOO TO SHOW SUPPORT, YOU MADE IT SEEM AS IF HER FAMILY KICKED YOU OUT….. STOP ACTING LIKE A COWARD MAN…. YOUR DAUGHTER NEEDS YOU! YOUR NEW WIFE SHOULD BE HELPING YOU SEE THIS AS WELL……
vv I agree someone needs to slap some sense into this man.. Is this really all this world thinks of is just money screw the kids the mother, dad, sister, brother as long as you get the money? SMH I swear money is the root of all evil I hope Bobby doesn’t go through with this non sense.
Wow! He’s got alot of nerve. She hasn’t been in the ground a week and he’s already looking to make a buck off of her death. It should have been him instead of Whitney, I swear. He should be standing by his daughters side and making a mends with her family. Bobbi Chris needs all the love, affection and attention she can handle because I fear the worse for her. Bobby Brown is being selfish and needs ANOTHER reality check ASAP! A tell all of his side of the story is wrong and I hope NOBODY finances his BS!
I don’t like tell alls to begin with, but let’s not act like this is not something that every woman who has ever dated a wealthy man does. I think this resonates with us more as being disgusting not only because whitney dies but because bobby is a man.
And the truth is Bob does need the money. So we shouldn’t hold it against him that he made his dates on tour with New Edition. If my mother dies tomorrow I couldn’t just take off indefinitely because I am sad about it. I have to not lose myself in my pain. I think Bobby will write a book. But I do not think it will be filled with a bunch of hateful commentary and stories about her.
And I won’t be surprised when it is a best seller because all those who are calling it shameful are the same crowd of people who read that stuff.
As far as bobby brown is concerned, he has no class, morals, values or scruples. I’m not surprised of anything I hear about him. It’s easy to say negative things about someone when they are not around to dispute what is being said. I am not saying that WH was a saint, because I know she was not. I don’t blame him for her using drugs as a younger person, before she met him I’m sure she dabbled in mild drugs as a younger person, you know experimenting. I feel she got involved with heavy drugs and booze, plus script meds, after meeting him and getting involved with him. I don’t for a minute believe it was love. I don’t care what she said. He did not try to help her, all he did was become an enabler. There were many things he could have done, such as going to her mom and talking to her and asking her to help her daughter. He was the more experienced when it came to hard drugs, I will never believe otherwise. It seems to me that the USA is a drug culture. My reason for saying this is everytime I watch the news, read tabloids, watch documentaries there is always a celeb reported as using drugs. Just imagine the amount that we still don’t know about.
What’s interesting is how so many want Bobby to give what hasn’t been given to him in return. You all have labeled him as a monster, so why should the monster be bigger than the christian? It appears as if the whole world has placed any and everything dark in Whitney’s life on this man’s shoulder so where is he to turn? When his children need him and he can’t provide for whatever reason, how many of you will have compassion for him and how many of you will run him further in the ground? If this is a legitimate way for him to (A) tell the truth about Whitney’s use of drugs long before she met him, and (B) financially provide and take care of his family, so be it. Any of you that don’t want to read his notes, you won’t be forced to, but for those who are interested in exploring information to formulate their own truth as opposed to what the media defines as “truth”, here’s your opportunity!
write the book Bobby-ignore those that don’t have a clue whether you’re doing it for money or not. It’s not your issue…it’s theirs. But when you write it…BE HONEST. Against popular belief not everyone hates you. Whitney as much as I love her music and her voice and she will always be my favorite singer…she was broken before you met her and if people wanna blame anyone for her broken-ness they have to look farther in her past than you.
he need to try amend the relationship with bobbi kristina and not hurt her, she already been thru enough of losing her mom that is devastating to write a book after her passing if he wanted to write a book he should have done if before she passed away why they cant let her rip what is this media ia about $$$$
