It’s not just Bobby Brown who’s taking issue with the upcoming Bobbi Kristina Brown biopic. The estate of the late young star also wants TV One to put the brakes on the project.


Bobbi Kristina Brown’s estate has joined the lawsuit filed by the singer’s father in a Manhattan federal court Saturday, Sept. 9. The estate, according to TMZ, says the flick, “Bobbi Kristina,” violates Bobbi Kristina’s right to privacy, something they say survived her death.

The “My Prerogative” performer alleged the film portrays him as “[violent] toward [ex-wife Whtiney] Houston,” and implies Brown “does not love his daughter [and is not] committed to his daughter,” according to documents obtained by the New York Post.

Both parties are seeking over $2 million in damages, although other reports say Bobby Brown seeks more than $1 million, and the plaintiffs want a judge to stop the biopic from airing.

However, TV One is standing by the film, which is scheduled to air Sunday, Oct. 8.

“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,” it said in a statement to E! News. “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.”
