Bobby Brown sues Showtime, BBC over Footage in Whitney Houston Documentary

The late Whitney Houston’s former husband, Bobby Brown, has sued Showtime Networks and the BBC over the documentary “Whitney: Can I Be Me,” alleging that the duo and several other defendants violated their rights by improperly using footage from the production of the 2005 reality series “Being Bobby Brown”
Brown’s attorneys in a lawsuit claim that he never signed a release for the film to utilise footage from the 2005 reality TV series “Being Bobby Brown”.
The lawsuit adds that Brown never consented for his likenesses to appear in the film at all. The complaint also points out that Brown’s production company Brownhouse Entertainment is credited at the end of the film. Brown’s legal team argues that the credits falsely suggest that Brownhouse authorized the footage that appears in the movie.
In the lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court’s New York southern district,Brown is asking for $2million from defendants Passion Pictures, Tracey Baker-Simmons, Wanda Shelley, B2 Entertainment and Simmons Shelley Entertainment, as well as Showtime and the BBC.
