In a statement, the publisher revealed that the ex-husband of the late Whitney Houston, and father to the late Bobbi Kristina Brown, has signed a deal to publish his memoir, which has a scheduled release date of June 2016.

"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," Brown said in the statement, referring to his 22-year-old daughter's tragic death in July.

"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," Brown said. "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. 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."

The publisher promises that Brown's book will be "raw and unvarnished," adding that he will "tell the full story of his life and set the record straight, particularly about his relationship with Whitney Houston."
