Bobby Brown has a story, and he wants to tell it. The money doesn't hurt, either.
Rumors are surfacing that Bobby Brown wants to cash in on Whitney Houston's death by releasing a tell-all book. According to the Huffington Post, Bobby has been wanting to release a book that touches on his relationship with the singer, and now the timing is perfect.
"Back in 2008, the interest in a book on Whitney Houston wasn't that great. Whitney had fallen off the radar back then," one publisher told the site. "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."
Yes, now is the time. Two weeks after she's gone and not even one week after she's been buried.
Probably the most disturbing thing is that they know enough people would buy this book to make it a lucrative endeavor. But I guess if O.J. could sell 'If I Did It,' this makes total sense.
The only issue that Brown might encounter is a confidentiality agreement he signed following his divorce with the singer. But sources tell Huffington Post reporter Rob Shuter that Bobby is determined to get that book out there as long as he gets paid.
"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," a friend of Whitney's 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."
