Bobby Brown has vowed to get justice for his sick daughter, Bobbi Kristina, amid reports that an alleged family member is shopping around a so called deathbed photo of her to media outlets.
Last month, the 22-year-old only biological daughter of the late Whitney Houston was moved to hospice care, five months after she was found unresponsive in a bathtub at her Roswell, Georgia, home just outside of Atlanta.

It was allegedly taken by an extended family member.
"I'm just looking to get justice," Brown told a TMZ in Los Angeles on Sunday when asked about the disturbing report. more >>
Fans will find out what a "James Bond" musical will look and sound like in the next two years or so, if plans for a musical will push through. Merry Saltzman and her outfit Placeholder Productions recently acquired rights for a stage show on the iconic spy. Saltzman is the daughter of James Bond film producer Harry Saltzman.
After "Harry Potter," James Bond is the next film franchise that is being transformed into a stage show.
The stage show, which will be a musical in particular, will be based on new material on James Bond, to be written by Dave Clarke. The songs in the musical will be written by singer/songwriter Jay Henry Weisz, a 59-year-old keyboardist and guitarist. Saltzman said that the musical will feature "existing Bond villains" but will also create new ones specifically for the musical. The musical will also feature its own new Bond girl. An IGN report also predicted that given the nature of the stage show, it will likely be less action-oriented. more >>
A group of Brazilian evangelical Christians has seen its Facegloria social networking website attract 100,000 users in its first month, offering a "morally better" version of Facebook that is centered on God and free from violence and pornography.
"On Facebook you see a lot of violence and pornography. That's why we thought of creating a network where we could talk about God, love and to spread His word," one of the founders, web designer Atilla Barros, told AFP in an interview.
"We want to be morally and technically better than Facebook. We want all Brazilian Evangelicals to shift to Facegloria," Barros added. more >>
An earlier report by Reuters said that the Korean phone manufacturer is looking to release several Tizen-powered smartphones within the year. A newly released report indicates that the first of these Tizen phones might be the Samsung Z3.
Tizen is Samsung's own mobile operating system which it developed completely independent of Android. Samsung is at the forefront of its development but it is also working with other industry partners such as Intel and Huawei. Only one phone has so far been released with Tizen, the Samsung Z1. Its limited release in India was received well and it is apparent that Samsung wants to try its hand again in using Tizen for smartphones. The OS is also being used in a couple of Samsung's wearables.
A new report from SamMobile "confirms" that there is a new Tizen phone coming and it is going to be the Samsung Z3. The SamMobile report cited sources that confirmed that the Z3 will be the next Tizen handset, with model number SM-Z300H_SWA_DD. It was also a conscious decision on the part of Samsung to go from Z1 to Z3, without using Z2. No reason was given for this decision. more >>
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints sent an official letter to its followers on Sunday announcing that it will continue supporting marriage as a union between one man and one woman, despite the Supreme Court's decision to legalize gay marriage in June. The church also noted that it will not be performing gay marriage ceremonies, and argued that homosexual behavior "violates the commandments of God."
"Changes in the civil law do not, indeed cannot, change the moral law that God has established. God expects us to uphold and keep His commandments regardless of divergent opinions or trends in society. His law of chastity is clear: sexual relations are proper only between a man and a woman who are legally and lawfully wedded as husband and wife," the church declares.
The letter from the Council of the First Presidency and Quorum of the Twelve Apostles was written a few days after the U.S. Supreme Court struck down four state constitutional amendments defining marriage as between one man and one woman on June 26, which effectively legalized gay marriage across all 50 states. The message was sent out to Mormon churches across the country and read aloud during Sunday services. more >>
