The Bobbi Kristina Brown Biopic Trailer Is Here and It’s Heartbreaking
Just about two years after Bobbi Kristina Brown died at age 22, the singer is the subject of a new TV movie titled Bobbi Kristina, and the trailer debuted Wednesday morning.
Brown, the daughter of Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown, died from a combination of drowning and drug intoxication in July 2016 after being found unresponsive in a bathtub months prior. She was in hospice care “surrounded by her family” at the time of her death, according to a statement released by the family at the time.
The trailer for Bobbi Kristina begins with a newscaster announcing Brown’s death; the rest of the clip shows Brown (Joy Rovaris) struggling with her family and her music career. “Everything is always about Whitney, I can never sing as well as you, I can never be the superstar you are,” she yells at one point. “You are the most beautiful thing I’ve ever made,” her mom (Hassan Johnson) screams in response.
Houston died in February 2012, and a month later, Brown went on OWN’s Oprah’s Next Chapter to talk about her mother. “I can hear her voice and spirit talking to me, and telling me, ‘Keep moving, baby,” she said at the time. “‘I’m right here, I gotcha.'”
The trailer for Bobbi Kristina—which also includes Brown interacting with boyfriend Nick Gordon, who was later found liable for her death—arrives just days after documentary Whitney: Can I Be Me debuted on Showtime. Read more about that here, and watch the Bobbi Kristina teaser above. The movie arrives on TV One this October. Demetria McKinney, Vivica A. Fox, and Nadji Jeter star.
