Bobbi Kristina Brown is defending her late mother’s memory after her grandmother, Cissy Houston, wrote a book about Whitney's life. According to the Huffington Post on Monday, Feb. 4, 2013, Bobbi vows to boycott her grandmother’s new book because she finds that it's "disrespectful" to both to her and her late mother.
The book is "disrespectful" towards her mother, conveys Bobbi in a recent tweet. It is also disrespectful towards her as Whitney’s daughter as far as Bobbi is concerned. The book hit’s the stores today and Whitney’s only child is hoping other’s will follow her lead and boycott “Remembering Whitney,” an memoir about the singer who met with an untimely death.
The book gives details about Whitney’s drug use, which is no secret to her fans. Cissy Houston has been on a promotional tour for her book, which brought her to Oprah’s show on the OWN network. She told Oprah that Kristina didn’t want her to write this book about her mother, but apparently Cissy felt Whitney’s story needed to be told.
The 79-year-old Cissy has been through a lot of pain in her life as she watched Whitney’s drug use. This mother feared for her daughter’s life, long before Whitney met her demise. Cissy and Bobbi have been at odds before, so this is nothing new. Back in Oct. the grandmother and granddaughter had issues about the $20 million that Bobbi felt she was owed from her mother’s inheritance. Bobbi’s behavior at the time didn’t show that she was making the best choices.
At the time, Cissy and her daughter-in-law Pat Houston tried to revise Bobbi’s inheritance. The reason they gave for doing this is because Bobbi “is a highly visible target for those who would exert undue influence over her inheritance and/or seek to benefit from respondent's resources and celebrity," according to Huffington Post.
It seems natural that Bobbi would want to defend her mother’s memory, but doesn’t Cissy as Whitney’s mother have the right to tell the story that she lived through with her daughter? If the book gives some insight into how Whitney’s life became out of control, this might help others on the brink of going through the same thing. If the book is just about making money, then maybe Bobbi has the right to orchestrate a boycott of the book. What do you think?
