Bobbi Kristina Brown isn’t shying away from voicing her opinion of grandmother Cissy Houston’s new book, “Remembering Whitney.”

On Twitter, Brown has bashed the book and says she has no intention of reading it.

One tweet: “ANYTHING concerning my grandmothers Book I & @nickdgordon OF COURSE personally have NOTHING 2 do with. I ask youplsRESPECT tht. Haven’t read&won’t.”

Brown also tweeted that she finds the book to be “disrespectful” to her mother. “Won’t tolerate it.”

The book includes details of Whitney’s drug abuse, rumors of a gay relationship and problems with ex-husband Bobby Brown.

Cissy Houston told USA Today that she and “Krissi” aren’t exactly close.

“We hope and pray for Krissi,” Houston said. “She lives in Atlanta while I’m here in New Jersey, so I don’t get to see her that often. And you know how 19-year-olds are — you call them on the phone, and they don’t always pick up. It’s difficult. But she knows how much I love her.”

In October, Brown and her grandmother butted heads over a $20 million inheritance earmarked for the teen. Cissy and her daughter-in-law, Pat Houston, sought to revise the inheritance, according to the Huffington Post, believing that Bobbi Kristina “is a highly visible target for those who would exert undue influence over her inheritance and/or seek to benefit from respondent’s resources and celebrity.”
