Bobby Brown is reportedly in the process of getting a tell-all book published about his ex-wife, Whitney Houston.
Just days after her emotional funeral, Brown is set to cash in on his 15-year marriage to Houston. The “My Prerogative” singer allegedly planned to release a book about his wife in 2008, but never published it because of a lack of public interest in Houston’s career and personal life at the time.
In an interview with the Huffington Post, a publishing insider said, “Back in 2008, the interest in a book on Whitney Houston wasn’t that great. 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.”
If a book were to hit shelves revealing secret aspects of Houston’s personal life, Brown would likely receive considerable backlash from the Grammy winner’s family and friends.
“Bobby loves all his children. He would do anything to protect all his children,” his former attorney, Phaedra Parks, revealed days after Whitney died.
According to Houston’s friends, “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. 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,” reports Huffington Post.
Brown has one major roadblock in his way before he proceeds with publishing. He signed a confidentiality agreement when he finalized his divorce from Houston in 2007 that would restrict how detailed he could be when discussing the years the couple shared married together.
