Bobby Brown and the estate of Bobbi Kristina Brown have filed a suit against two companies for their documentary “Whitney: Can I Be Me,”. Bobby is suing both Showtime and BBC over the 2017 documentary that he says features previously unseen footage that he never gave his approval of.“The film contains footage that Brown and [his late daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown] has never consented to have released,” the suit, which was filed Tuesday (Nov. 27) in New York District Court, reads. “Brown and [his late daughter] appear in the film for a substantial period of time, in excess of thirty (30) minutes. … Brown never signed or executed a release for the airing of the material that appears in the film.”
The documentary premiered at the 2017 Tribeca Film Festival before airing on Showtime in the US and the BBC in the UK later that year. Bobby Brown is seeking more than $2 million in damages.
