Whitney Houston Documentary Alleges the Singer Was Sexually Abused as a Child

In the new documentary'Whitney' Houston's brother talks about being sexually abused by a family member and says he believes Whitney was also abused by the same person

Her brother Gary Garland also speaks about their childhood in the documentary and discloses his greatest trauma was being abused "by a female relative". "It made her question her sexual preference", she notes in the doc. The latter drowned in a bathtub in an incident that was partly caused by cocaine use and heart disease.

Whitney, directed by Scottish film-maker Kevin Macdonald, alleges Houston's cousin, the soul singer Dee Dee Warwick, abused her, according to reports.

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

Houston died on February 11, 2012, at age 48 as he she was found unconscious in a hotel room bathtub. Some of the people who sat down for interviews include Houston's ex-husband Bobby Brown, Arista Records founder Clive Davis (who discovered her), and Kevin Costner with whom she co-starred in The Bodyguard.

And, of course, Houston's own voice - specifically, her memorable 1991 performance of "The Star-Spangled Banner" at Super Bowl XXV - is showcased in the trailer. (Houston would have been a toddler at the time.) The claim is supported by Houston's assistant Mary Jones (often referred to as "Aunt Mary"), who says the singer spoke of being "molested at a young age" by a woman. "There are many revelations in the film that I think I can't really talk about right now, but which I think will, even to people who feel they know this story, will make a lot more sense of who she is and of these kind of things that we're talking about", he told EW.

Mad dies after vape pen explodes and lodges shrapnel in his skull
The pen does not come with safety features to ensure the device doesn't overheat, according to an online product description . The owner of Lizard Juice, an e-cigarette retailer in Florida, said he does not think such vaping pens are "safe enough".

Macdonald told Vanity Fair that he was suspicious of Houston's behavior when analyzing hundreds of hours of private home footage.

"She felt uncomfortable in her own skin in nearly every interview there was with her". She was a handsome woman, but she was never particularly sexy. And I thought that was a very odd thing, and it kind of reminded me of people I'd seen who had suffered from abuse, just in their body language and their sense of holding something back. and then somebody mentioned it off-camera to me.

While the film was initially going to emphasize Houston's alleged relationship with longtime best friend and employee Robyn Crawford, Macdonald ultimately decided against it. "I think it's all about her family, really".

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

The film is expected to hit theatres on July 6.
