Bobby Brown is releasing a memoir called My Prerogative, it was announced on Tuesday.

The New Edition singer signed a deal with Dey Street Books earlier this year. In a statement, Brown explains that he agreed to the project before his daughter, Bobbi Kristina, died in late July. As Gossip Cop reported, she was in a coma for months after being found unconscious in the bathtub of her home, and ultimately succumbed to her injuries.

Brown says, “Right after I signed on to write my story, I went through one of the most agonizing traumas I had ever experienced with the death of my daughter. But I was surprised by how therapeutic it was to work on this project, to look at the entire arc of my life and to realize that although there has been considerable pain, I have also been incredibly blessed.”

“I hope my fans and other readers of this book will be entertained by this trip into the crazy, exciting, fascinating world of Bobby Brown,” continues the star. “And I hope they will feel that I have been as honest and open with them in these pages as I have tried to be my entire life.”

According to Dey Street Books, the “raw and unvarnished” memoir tells “the full story of his life and set[s] the record straight, particularly about his relationship with Whitney Houston.” The publishing company adds, “My Prerogative is the story of a man who has been on the top of the mountain and in the depths of the valley and who is now finally ready to talk about his career and family life, from the passion and the excess to his creative inspirations and massive musical success.”

My Prerogative will be released in June. TELL US: What do you think of Brown writing a memoir?
