Bobby Brown is reportedly looking to cash in on the death of his former wife Whitney Houston, after major publishers reignited their interest in a 'tell all' book, which he first touted in 2008. The New Edition singer, who abruptly left Whitney's funeral in Newark, New Jersey, last week, is allegedly back in contact with publishers over a deal.

Speaking to the Huffington Post, an unnamed publisher said, "Back in 2008, the interest in a book on Whitney Houston wasn't that great.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". It's certainly true that a tell-all book about Whitney would now be of far more interest to fans of the singer than it would have been in 2008 - however, there are a few potential problems to the publication. Following his divorce from Whitney Houston, Brown is understood to have signed a confidently agreement prohibiting him from speaking out about their personal life - obviously, a tell-all book would almost certainly break the terms of that agreement. Another factor is their daughter Bobbi Kristina, who is said to be struggling to cope following the death of her mother. It is understood the 18-year-old aspiring singer would be against any publication.

This week, a family source speaking to US Weekly magazine said, "Bobbi's problems are out of control". Some reports have suggested the likes of Cissy Houston and Dionne Warwick have looking to get Bobbi some professional help.
