Whitney Houston's daughter keen to play her mother in biopic
Bobbi Kristina says she'd be more suited to the role than Rihanna
Whitney Houston's daughter Bobbi Kristina is apparently keen to take on the role of her late mother in a film of her life.
According to a report by TMZ, the daughter of Houston and former husband Bobby Brown has told friends that she feels that she is the only person who could do her mother's story justice.
The news follows reports which state that Rihanna has expressed an interest in appearing as Houston on film. TMZ writes: "According to our sources, Bobbi feels she is the perfect person to play the part of Whitney ... telling friends that no one knew her better."
MTV recently reported that Houston's funeral cost the state of New Jersey $187,000 (£117,810) in police overtime. Almost 200 officers were working at and nearby the New Baptist Church in Newark, Houston's childhood church, when she was laid to rest in February.
Last month the Los Angeles County coroner's office revealed that Whitney Houston's cause of death was drowning combined with the "effects of atherosclerotic heart disease and cocaine use". Houston passed away on February 11 at the age of 48, after she was discovered underwater and unconscious in a bath at a hotel in Beverly Hills.
