bobby brown*Now that his ex-love is gone, some are speculating that Bobby Brown is attempting to get the once-talked-about book published.

The singer told the press in 2008 that he wrote a tell-all book about his life with Whitney Houston, but it didn’t get published because it wasn’t very good, said a major publisher in an interview with the Huffington Post.

“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.”

Besides, Bobby signed a confidentiality agreement when the divorce was finalized. The publisher also cautioned about the impact it would have on their daughter Bobbi Kristina.

“Bobby loves all his children,” his former attorney, Phaedra Parks shared days after Whitney died. “He would do anything to protect all his children.”

But friends of Whitney say they doubt it.

“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,” said a friend of Whitney’s to HuffPost.

“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.”
