Bobbi Kristina’s surprise wedding isn’t the only thing tearing Whitney Houston’s troubled family apart – they’re also bickering over a new movie about the tragic songbird’s life. The late diva’s daughter Bobbi Kristina, 20, supports a warts-and-all biopic being developed by Whitney’s mentor, music mogul Clive Davis, sources say. But Whitney’s mother Cissy Houston and her cousin Dionne Warwick strongly oppose the project unless they’re given full creative control, the sources add. “Clive is not giving in to their demands,” said an insider. “He’s told Whitney’s family that this movie is a labor of love for him, and he’s calling all the shots.” Davis wants multitalented Tyler Perry, the writer/producer and star of the “Madea” movies, to direct the film, with “Anchorman 2” actress Meagan Good playing Whitney, according to the source. But Warwick apparently has other ideas, insisting that Davis consider Whitney’s “Sparkle” co-star Jordin Sparks as well as pop star Rihanna.Who do you think should play the role & why?
