Bobbi Kristina Brown Slams Book: Whitney Houston's Daughter Unhappy With Tell-All Memoir

Bobbi Kristina Brown has a major problem with her grandmother, Cissy Houston, writing a tell-all book about her mother.

Bobbi Kristina announced plans to boycott Cissy's book, "Remembering Whitney," on Twitter on Thursday, the same day the book hits shelves across the nation, notes TMZ.

The only daughter of the late Whitney Houston said she finds the book "disrespectful" and has asked her fans not to read.

"Remembering Whitney" includes details of Whitney's drug abuse, rumors of a gay relationship and problems with her ex-husband, Bobby Brown.

Cissy has been busy promoting the tell-all memoir. Her most talked-about sit-down happened on Oprah Winfrey's couch for an episode of "Oprah's Next Chapter" on OWN. During the interview, Cissy revealed that Bobbi Kristina never wanted her to write the book.

"Is it true that Bobbi Kristina didn't want you to write this book?" asks Winfrey.

"That's what I heard," said Cissy, laughing. "I guess somebody telling her something, I don't know who."

The 79-year-old, who does not approve of the Lifetime reality show, "The Houstons: On Our Own," goes on to describe her relationship with her granddaughter as "iffy."

"I think she wants to be grown, and she knows that I'm not gonna tolerate her saying or doing anything to me," she says. "I'm gonna tell her the right thing that I think. I want her to do the right thing. And all I'm trying to do is guide her to the right place in her life."

Back in October, Bobbi Kristina and her grandmother had issues over a $20 million inheritance owed to the young girl. Cissy and her daughter-in-law, Pat Houston, sought to revise the inheritance, believing that Bobbi Kristina “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."
