  • Documentary alleges Whitney Houston was sexually abused as a child

Mary Jones, the singer's assistant, supported the allegations by noting that Houston spoke of a woman molesting her when she was young. Houston, who had a daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown, with Bobby Brown, is said to have insisted on taking Bobbi on tour with her.

Whitney was abused as a child, her family has claimed.

Gary Houston, Whitney's half-brother, also said he was sexually abused between the age of seven and nine by a female family member, in the documentary. But in 2012, Houston died in a bathtub after struggling for years with substance abuse.

Warwick, sister of Dionne Warwick, died in 2008 and was never publicly accused of sexual abuse. In it, her brother Gary Houston is interviewed about Whitney. It touches on other aspects of the star's troubled life, giving viewers a glimpse into everything from her drug usage to tumultuous relationship with ex-husband Bobby Brown, who also appears.

Fans of Whitney Houston are in for a treat - the trailer for her upcoming documentary Whitney is finally here, offering an intimate look inside her life. "She felt uncomfortable in her own skin in nearly every interview there was with her", he told Deadline.

MacDonald also told Vanity Fair that Dionne Warwick has been informed of the accusation, but that "any negative feelings toward her would be completely wrong". She seemed kind of asexual in a unusual way. "These are specific revelations that I think will get people to a deeper understanding of who Whitney was and in many ways redeem her as a person". The documentary mentions Robyn Crawford - Houston's longtime best friend and supposed romantic partner - and their alleged relationship. "She's this attractive woman but she's very closed in her demeanor".

Macdonald suspected that there was "something wrong" with Houston after watching footage of her past interviews in preparation for the film project, he said. And I thought that was interesting. "There was something preventing her, in some way, from expressing her real self". Whitney premieres this Thursday at Cannes and is slated for a theatrical release July 6.
