Four years ago, Whitney Houston's ex-husband, Bobby Brown, planned to sell a tell-all book about his life with the superstar. And although that book was never published, some say Bobby is once again trying to make it happen.
"Back in 2008, the interest in a book on Whitney Houston wasn't that great," a major publisher tells me. "Whitney had fallen off the radar back then ... 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."
But standing in Bobby's way is the confidentiality agreement he signed when his divorce was finalized, plus the impact that a tell-all would have on his daughter, Bobbi Kristina.
"Bobby loves all his children," his former attorney, Phaedra Parks told me days after Whitney died. "He would do anything to protect all his children."
But friends of Whitney tell me they are not so sure.
"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 the diva tells me. "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."
