Author Ian Halperin is hoping to get to the bottom of the tragedy surrounding Whitney Houston and her daughter, Bobbi Kristina.

Halperin, whose previous works include “Unmasked: The Final Years of Michael Jackson” and “Who Killed Kurt Cobain?” is now turning his eye to Houston and Brown for a new book, “Whitney & Bobbi Kristina: The Deadly Price of Fame.” The book will be published June 9 by Gallery Books.

In a press release, Gallery said that Halperin “exposes the complicated Houston family dynamics, including the torment that happened behind closed doors.

“Drawing on evidence from trusted Houston family members, friends, and other inside sources, Halperin shares new insights into Whitney’s rise to fame, stormy marriage, and devastating spiral into self-destruction; and provides revelatory details about Bobbi Kristina’s relationship with Nick Gordon, including new evidence about the days leading up to Bobbi Kristina being found unresponsive in the bathtub of her home,” Gallery noted.

Houston died in 2012 at age 48, while Brown, 22, was found face-down and unresponsive in the bathtub of her Georgia home in January. Her grandmother, Cissy Houston, said in May that Brown’s condition is “not progressing at all.”
