Bobby Brown is reportedly looking to cash-in on the death of his former wife Whitney Houston, according to a new report by the Huffington Post. Brown - who stormed out of Whitney's funeral last week after an alleged disagreement over seating arrangements - first touted the book to publishers in 2008.
It seems the same publishers who turned the book down a couple of years ago are now ready to offer Brown a deal, with one anonymous publisher saying, "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". However, standing in Brown's way is the confidentiality agreement that he signed when his divorce from Houston went through - essentially stopping him from talking out about their time spent together. Another factor would be the effect a tell-all book would have on his and Whitney's daughter Bobbi Kristina, who is reportedly struggling to cope following the death of her mother. Brown's former attorney Phaedra Parks says, "Bobby loves all his children.He would do anything to protect all his children", therefore if Bobbi Kristina were to block the book from being written, it is assumed Brown would comply.
However, friends of Whitney Houston say the New Edition singer would have no qualms in cashing in on the death of his ex-wife, with one insider saying, "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"
