Bobby Brown Sues Showtime and BBC for $2 Million Over Whitney Houston Biopic

By TheBlast Staff

Bobby Brown declined to be a part of a Whitney Houston documentary but he ended up in it anyway, so he's suing Showtime, BBC and the producers for using footage of him without his permission.

According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Brown claims a producer for "Can I Be Me?" reached out to him in June 2016 requesting to interview him for the film. Brown declined to be interviewed.

But Brown claims the film used over 30 minutes of footage of him and Bobbi Kristina, that he claims he has the rights to, without his permission. Brown even alleges the film listed his company, Brownhouse Entertainment, in the credits, "indicating/suggesting that Brownhouse provided and approved footage for the film."

Brown is suing for damages in excess of $2,000,000.

Bobby Brown filed a lawsuit last year to try and stop a Bobbi Kristina biopic, which ended up airing as planned.
