The New Trailer for Forthcoming Whitney Documentary Will Give You Chills

Within the documentary, Ms Jones mentioned she recalled Houston saying: "Mary, I used to be [abused] too".

Two different people make the sexual assault claim on screen, including Houston's half-brother (and former National Basketball Association player) Gary Garland-Houston. As for why Houston never told her mother: "I think she was ashamed", says Jones. "A predator is a predator is a predator.' If Cissy had known, she would have done something about it, because Cissy loves her children'".

Whitney Houston died at the age of 48 on February 11, 2012, having accidentally drowned in a bathtub after a heart attack, brought on after years of substance abuse. Dee Dee is said to have struggled with narcotics addition and died in 2008, aged 63.

The documentary, which has been approved by the Whitney Houston estate, also contains unheard recordings, behind-the-scenes video footage, home videos and original interviews.

"Whitney" debuted at the Cannes Film Festival and unearthed the bombshell detail about the late singer. "I wouldn't be surprised if [Houston] didn't tell him". Whereas the teaser gave us an ebullient Whitney Houston rehearsing with backup dancers and showcasing her trademark vocals, the trailer gets into the meat of the documentary with emotional recollections of the late singer. According to its synopsis, the film promises to be "an intimate, unflinching portrait of Houston and her family that probes beyond familiar tabloid headlines and sheds new light on the spellbinding trajectory of Houston's life".

"She felt uncomfortable in her own skin in nearly every interview there was with her". She was a attractive woman, but she was never particularly sexy.

Whitney Houston, an American singer who was entitled as the most awarded female act of all time by Guinness World Records was sexually abused by Dee Dee Warwick. "The real story, as I dug deeper, had to do with her family, and to do with race, I suppose, and her childhood".

"Whitney", which is to be released in theaters July 7, suggests that the alleged incidents of abuse took place while Cissy Houston was touring.

The Guardian has contacted representatives of the Warwick family for comment on the allegations.
