Bobby Brown has failed to block a biopic about his deceased daughter from airing, after a judge shot down his motion for an injunction against the film.
The movie, “Bobbi Kristina,” will air on TV One on October 8 at 7 p.m. ET, following a judge’s decision on Thursday to reject Brown’s motion.
“We are pleased with the court’s ruling and look forward to sharing this poignant look at the life of Bobbi Kristina Brown with our audience,” TV One said in a statement.

However, while Brown failed to block the film’s premiere, his $1 million-plus defamation lawsuit over the biopic remains in play.
In the lawsuit, filed in September, Brown alleges that TV One knowingly and maliciously” used his persona and life, and that the movie “contains defamatory and untrue depictions” of him.
“The Defendants’ movie and the script writing are libelous and slanderous toward” Brown, the suit reads.

The suit also alleges that the film uses information that its producers obtained while working on the Bravo reality series “Being Bobby Brown,” in violation of a confidentiality agreement.
Among the alleged defamatory depictions: “[T]he Defendants’ movie contains defamatory untrue depictions of [Bobby] having dinner with [Bobbi Kristina] and scenes suggesting that [Brown] does not love his daughter or is committed to his daughter.”
Bobbi Kristina Brown, the daughter on Brown and deceased singer Whitney Houston, was found unconscious in the bathtub of her Georgia home on Jan. 31, 2015, and died on July 26, 2015 at age 22 after clinging to life for six months.
