New reports have suggested that Bobby Brown has plans to release a new, tell all book. However, those close to Whitney Houston are accusing him of simply chasing a paycheck.
Bobby Brown, who has previously mentioned plans to write a tell all book to offer an "honest look" into the life of ex-wife Whitney Houston, has now reportedly shown a renewed interest in the prospect.
"Back in 2008, the interest in a book on Whitney Houston wasn't that great," a major publisher has said, according to the Huffington Post. "Whitney had fallen off the radar back then ... but now, following her tragic death, the market has changed. Now is the time for a book that details an honest look into the life of Whitney."
It has also been reported that the only two things stopping Brown are a confidentiality agreement he signed after his divorce from Houston, and of course his love for daughter, Bobbi Kristina. "Bobby loves all his children," his former attorney, Phaedra Parks has said, according to the Huffington Post. "He would do anything to protect all his children."
Brown, who reportedly rushed to his daughter's side following Houston's sudden death, also promised to attend Houston's funeral to support his daughter during the difficult time. However, when Brown arrived he complained of seating difficulties, and was offended after being asked to switch seats. He eventually ended up leaving the funeral just minutes into the service.
Friends of Houston have had a difficult time buying into Brown's sincerity. "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," one friend has stated. "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."
Houston's fans have relayed similar feelings. "I hope no one buys the book & he goes bankrupt and ends up living in a trailer in the middle of no where! He makes me sick! Whitney was fine until she met this nasty troll. Like a demon he destroyed her," Selena Esparza commented on the Huff Post blog.
