Bobby Brown’s BET biopic certainly got a few side-eyes from viewers, but apparently Bobby’s own family wasn’t happy with what they saw on ‘The Bobby Brown Story.’
Bobby’s sister, Leolah Brown Muhammad, took to Facebook to blast the film — especially how it portrayed Bobby’s current wife, Alicia Etheredge-Brown.

“THE FAKEST MOVIE I EVER SEEN!” she wrote on Facebook (via Essence). “THAT IS NOT ALICIA! PALEEEEEEEEEZ! SPARE ME THAT LAUGH! SUCH A LIAR! I’M WONDERING WHAT IS THE MOTIVE FOR ALL THIS? I READ WELL THOUGH…AND TRUST I’M NOT DUMB!”
She even issued a vague threat to Alicia, punctuated with a string of smiling emojis.
“LISTEN, ALICIA IF YOU THINK FOR ONE MINUTE THAT YOU ARE GOING TO KILL MY BROTHER AND GET AWAY WITH IT GUESS WHAT?????ALL I CAN SAY IS YOU BETTER STAY PRAYED UP!”
In the biopic, Alicia is portrayed as the driving force of Bobby’s redemption, who not only loves him but his family as well. But according to Leolah, that’s not how things played out.
“BOBBY WHY DID YOU LET ALICIA LIE LIKE THAT IN THAT MOVIE AND SAY SHE WELCOMED YOUR WHOLE FAMILY INTO HER LIFE!!!???” she wrote in another post. “AND THIS BITCH LITERALLY WITHOUT A LITTLE EXAGGERATION HATES FOR ABSOLUTELY NO REASON EVERY SINGLE PERSON THAT CARRIES YOUR BLOOD!!!???”
It also appears that while Leolah understood why her brother wanted to tell his side of the story, she was less than impressed with how the movie portrayed her late sister-in-law, and Bobby’s first wife, Whitney Houston.
“But my thing is, why lie or allow THEM to lie and make Whitney look so bad,” she wrote in response to a comment on her post. “Yes Whitney was feisty! But…but SHE LOVED BOBBY! AND SHE DID NOT DESERVE TO BE TALKED ABOUT LIKE THAT! AND THEN, TO ACTUALLY JUST STRAIGHT LIE ABOUT A BUNCH OF S–T IS WHAT I DONT LIKE…”
In addition to its portrayal of Alicia and Houston, the film has also raised eyebrows for claiming Bobby once slept with Janet Jackson before promptly kicking her out of his hotel room.
