It has been over a month since the Bobbi Kristina biopic aired on TV One.

The made for television movie aired to mixed reviews and was rife with controversy thanks to Bobby Brown and Bobbi Kristina’s estate’s attempts to block the biopic from ever airing. Still, even though they failed to stop it from airing, they did reach a settlement with TV One.

We broke the story … the estate joined forces with Brown in September to stop the biopicfrom airing. Bobby claimed the portrayal of him as a bad dad was defamatory, and Bobbi Kristina’s estate claimed the show violated her right to privacy. It aired anyway last month on October 8.

It seems … even though they weren’t able to block the airing of the show, Brown and Bobbi’s estate were able to score some cash in the settlement. They wanted more than $2 million in damages, but it’s unclear how much they got.

According to the new docs … the case is now dismissed.

Well we are glad to hear this has all been settled. We are however still saddened by the loss of Bobbi Kristina. Gone too soon…gone too soon…
