Bobbi Kristina Brown biopic will still go on

R.I.P: Bobbi Kristina Brown

FOLLOWING REPORTS that a New York judge had temporarily blocked the broadcast of an unauthorised Bobbi Kristina Brown biopic, we can confirm that it is still scheduled to air on October 8 2017.

The tragic 22-year-old's life has become the subject of a TV One film, titled Bobbi Kristina, which is due to air in the U.S. next month (Oct 17).

However, singer Bobby Brown filed suit earlier this month (Sep 17), claiming his depiction as a bad dad and violent husband to late ex-wife Whitney Houston, Bobbi Kristina's mother, is defamatory.

Administrators for his late daughter's estate joined him in the legal battle in a bid to shut down the project for good, insisting the biopic violates Bobbi Kristina's right to privacy, and together, they demanded over $2 million (£1.5 million) in damages.

However, the court has not yet ruled. The judge will decide at a later date whether or not to grant an official order to permanently bar the movie's release.

Bobbi Kristina died in July, 2015, six months after she was placed in a medically-induced coma following a drowning incident at the home she shared with her boyfriend Nick Gordon in Georgia.
