Bobby Brown Sue’s Over Bobbi Kristina Biopic
It looks like Bobby Brown is afraid he is going to get dragged after his portrayal in TVone’s upcoming biopic for his late daughtter Bobbi Kristina. The former R&B star suing the network to stop it. The New York Post reports that Brown filed a suit in a Manhattan Federal Court, where he calls their portrayal of his character “defamatory and untrue”.

The film is set to air on the network on October 8 at 7/6C. Here’s a preview:
