Whitney Houston Documentary Trailer Features Bobby Brown, Cissy Houston, & More

Paula Abdul

A new documentary about late singer Whitney Houston alleges that her cousin, Dee Dee Warwick, sexually abused her. "There was something preventing her, in some way, from expressing her real self".

The emotional trailer features appearances by Houston's mother, Cissy Houston, her brother, Michael Houston, Bobby Brown, as well as legendary music executives Clive Davis, Babyface, and L.A. Reid. She's very lovely but not sexual, she feels uncomfortable in her skin.

Jones shared in the doc that the traumatizing experience caused Houston to question her own sexuality and perpetuated her drug problems later in life. She says, 'Mommy don't know the things we went through'. Macdonald, meanwhile, addresses it more passingly, not managing to draw Brown or Cissy Houston on the evidently contentious subject of Crawford - who, once more, is pointedly not available for interview. "But we've actually had a very unacrimonious and pleasant collaboration, and they've been supportive of the film, even though there are quite a few sensitive issues brought up". Whitney was also known to bring her daughter Bobbi Kristina, who tragically died in 2015, on global tours and would encourage Jones to do the same. And she said to me, "I just don't understand what happened, she was the most lovely girl, ' and this was someone who knew her really well". It was Jones' interview that changed the direction of the film at the last minute.

Describing himself as a detective wasn't a hat that he necessarily wanted to wear at the beginning of filming. And although he has interviewed more than 70 people, only 40 appear in 120 minutes of film, because according to filmmaker, many were lying.

Despite this, more than one in three young, disabled gamers told us they feel excluded due to a lack of accessibility. Xbox Adaptive Controller release date - when it is coming out? It's created to be very accessible, says Microsoft.

"I think it will impact her legacy in a positive way because I hope that it will make people feel like I'm not going to dismiss her as this drug-addicted, tabloid, ne'er do well, low-class person", Macdonald explained.

And the alleged abuse is definitely one of them.

The trailer may be short, but it certainly gives us hints about the topics it will delve into and secrets it will uncover about Whitney's life.

Check out the trailer below. Houston's life journey is very similar to that of Michael Jackson or Amy Winehouse (who had his own documentary in Cannes), or musical stars whose lives ended dramatically.
