The first trailer for TV One’s upcoming biopic on the life of Bobbi Kristina Brown is here.
The made-for-TV movie chronicles Bobbi’s tumultuous relationship with Nick Gordon and her struggle with living in her mother’s shadow.
In the Bobbi Kristina clip, Brown – portrayed by Joy Rovaris – argues with her aunt Pat Houston – played by Vivica A. Fox – over Gordon after the latter asserts, “He’s a troubled young man.”
“He is the single best thing that’s happened to me since my mom,” retorts Brown.
Later, Brown breaks down at her mother Whitney Houston, played by Demetria McKinney, saying through tears, “Everything is always about Whitney.”
“I can never sing as well as you, I can never be the superstar that you are,” she cries.
The film also features Hassan Johnson as Brown’s father, Bobby Brown, and Nadji Jeter as Nick Gordon. Le’Azionna Braden plays Brown in her younger years.
Brown died on July 26, 2015, nearly six months after she was found unresponsive in a bathtub at her Roswell, Georgia, home by Gordon on Jan. 31. She was buried in New Jersey next to her late mother Houston, who died in February 2012.
Gordon was previously found civilly liable for the death of Brown and was ordered to pay $36 million to the estate of his former girlfriend in November 2016. Gordon has consistently denied having any involvement in her death, and no criminal charges have ever been brought, though the investigation is ongoing.
