Bobby Brown, and now the estate of Bobbi Kristina Brown, have filed a $2 million lawsuit against TV One to prevent the network from airing a Bobbi Kristina biopic that’s set to air on October 8.

TMZ reports:

Bobby has already filed suit, claiming the portrayal as a bad dad is defamatory.

Bobbi Kristina’s estate has now joined the lawsuit, claiming the biopic violates Bobbi Kristina’s right to privacy, which they claim survived her death.


Bobby Brown also reportedly objects to the movie’s apparent “defamatory untrue depictions” of him as violent toward Whitney Houston.

Following Brown’s suit, TV One execs wrote in a statement that the network was “taking appropriate steps on behalf of our network to respond” and that it “stand[s] by the film and its representation of this period in Bobbi Kristina’s life.”

The movie, per TV One, promises “an intimate look at the highs and lows of parental, familial and romantic love complicated by fame through the eyes of a sensitive, vulnerable young woman.”
