Bobby Brown Loses Lawsuit Against TV One, Network to Air ‘Bobbi Kristina’ Biopic

Bobby Brown’s attempt to stop TV One from airing its unauthorized Bobbi Kristina biopic has just gone up in flames as his lawsuit against the network has been dismissed.

A representative from TV One spoke with TheJasmineBrand about the verdict:

“Today, the court rejected a motion for a preliminary injunction filed by Bobby Brown and the Estate of Bobbi Kristina Brown that sought to enjoin the network’s airing of the original movie, Bobbi Kristina. We are pleased with the court’s ruling and look forward to sharing this poignant look at the life of Bobbi Kristina Brown with our audience, Sunday, Oct. 8.”

The New Edition member’s original suit sought over $1,000,000 in damages, with Brown claiming the film contains scenes that show him being physically abusive toward his late wife, singer Whitney Houston.

There are also alleged “untrue” scenes that portray him as neglectful and unloving toward his deceased daughter, according to E! News.

The 48-year-old entertainer also alleged the production obtained footage from his 2004 reality show, Being Bobby Brown, and used it in the film without his expressed permission.

Brown also took issue with the casting notice for his character, which described him as a “hard drug user” who “devolves into violence and abuse toward his wife.”

Bobbi Kristina airs Oct. 8 at 7 p.m. EST on TV One.
