Is Bobby Brown Going to Release a Tell-All Book About Whitney Houston?

Whitney Houston hasn’t even been dead for two weeks and already there is talk that her ex-husband Bobby Brown, to whom she was married for 14 years and who is the father of her only child Bobbi Kristina, 18, may author a tell-all about life with the pop diva.

The Huffington Post reports that Brown actually attempted to pitch a book about their life together back in 2008, but at the time, interest in a book about Houston was lukewarm at best. She hadn’t had a hit in years — but with her passing at age 48, curiosity about the ‘I Will Always Love You’ singer is burning at a fevered pitch.

“But now, following her tragic death, the market has changed,” a source said. “Now is the time for a book that details an honest look into the life of Whitney.”

There are some roadblocks for Brown, though. He did sign a confidentiality agreement when he and Houston divorced, to say nothing of the damage a tell-all could inflict upon his daughter Bobbi Kris.

“Bobby loves all his children,” his former attorney, Phaedra Parks, said. “He would do anything to protect all his children.” This book, if he does indeed plan to try and release it, doesn’t exactly sound like a protective measure.

There is also that drama during Houston’s funeral last weekend, when Brown exited early after being told he could not sit in the front row. That was sort of ridiculous, since he was there to comfort his daughter and he was married to Houston for nearly two decades. Some might assume this book is a case of sour grapes in light of that incident.

A friend of the late, great Houston is skeptical about Brown and his motives. “This is a man who left his ex-wife’s funeral because he didn’t like his seats and went to a paying gig that night,” the friend said. “He didn’t get on stage that night because he needed to sing his greatest hits or because Whitney would have wanted him to entertain his fans, he did it to get a paycheck — the same reason he now wants to write a tell-all book.”
