The estate of Bobbi Kristina Brown has joined a $2 million lawsuit filed last week by the tragic music scion’s dad, Bobby Brown, seeking to block TV One from airing a biopic about her death.
On Thursday, Brown filed the lawsuit claiming that the film titled “Bobbi Kristina” –which is set to air on the cable channel next month — falsely paints him to be a neglectful father.
“The movie contains defamatory scenes about the life of Bobbi Kristina Brown, ” the movie also “contains defamatory and untrue depictions of Robert Brown being violent towards Whitney Houston…and [there are] scenes suggesting that Robert Brown does not love his daughter or is [not] committed to Bobbi Kristina Brown, ” the amended lawsuit states.
Brown — who lost his 22-year-old daughter Bobbi Kristina after her husband Nick Gordon found her unconscious in a bathtub in Georgia — claims he has not seen the script to the movie despite his requests.
The elder Brown also claims that he has sold the rights to a movie about his life to BET and the TV One film jeopardizes that project. Brown was initially suing for $1 million but the amended lawsuit seeks $2 million.
