Bobby Brown has lost his bid to stop a new biopic about his late daughter from hitting TV screens.
The “Bobbi Kristina”TV movie will air in America as planned this weekend after a judge shot down Brown’s efforts to halt the project over concerns about the way he is depicted in the film.
“Today, the court rejected a motion for a preliminary injunction filed by Bobby Brown and the Estate for Bobbi Kristina Brown that sought to enjoin the network’s airing of the original movie, ‘Bobbi Kristina,’” a statement from TV One bosses to The Blast reads.
“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 on Sunday on TV One.”
Brown sued the producers and TV One executives claiming the movie was full of lies.
The producers countered by insisting the events in the film followed descriptions from Brown’s autobiography, “Every Little Step.”
Meanwhile, Vivica A. Fox, who plays Bobbi Kristina’s aunt Pat Houston in the TV movie, insists she wouldn’t have been a part of the project if it was in any way defamatory, because she owes it to her late friend Whitney Houston – Bobbi Kristina’s mom – to be honest, and true.
She tells U.S. TV host Steve Harvey, “That (Whitney) was my girl and I love her and I miss her… When we decided to do The Bobbi Kristina Story we did this story with absolute love and respect. That was my friend. I would never ever be involved with anything to defame the legacy of one of our true queens.”
