Is Bobby Brown thinking about dishing all the dirt on his relationship with deceased diva Whitney Houston?!
Whitney hasn’t been in the ground a week, but Bobby may be re-visiting the idea of writing a tell-all about her, according to The Huffington Post. The pair had a tumultuous 14-year marriage before Whitney filed for divorce in 2006.
Supposedly, Bobby had thought to write an expose on their relationship in 2008, but the idea fizzled out. Now that Whitney has passed on, there’s buzz that he may be trying to move ahead with the book.
“Back in 2008, the interest in a book on Whitney Houston wasn’t that great,” one publisher told 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.”
But getting any potential tell-all on the shelves will be tough considering the confidentiality agreement that was included in the divorce settlement. Also, the publication of such a book could have a huge impact on his daughter with Whitney, Bobbi Kristina, and that might stop him from putting pen to paper.
“Bobby loves all his children,” said Phaedra Parks, his former attorney. “He would do anything to protect all his children.”
Whitney’s friends, however, aren’t so sure that even that would stop him from giving up the goods on their rocky romance. They charge that whether or not Bobby writes the tell-all will be a decision that is purely motivated by money.
“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,” Whitney’s friend supposedly said. “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.”
Meanwhile, someone else has cashed in on Whitney’s death in a far more shocking way. The National Enquirer has come under fire for publishing a picture of Whitney in her casket on its cover.
The tabloid would not disclose who took the shot, but it claims that Whitney was laid to rest wearing $500,000 worth of jewelry and gold slippers on her feet. Her nickname, "Nippy," was embroidered on the inside of her casket between two treble-clef signs. Reportedly, the picture was taken at Whigham’s Funeral Home in Newark, New Jersey.
