Whitney Houston Doc WHITNEY Gets a Trailer

Documentary alleges Whitney Houston was sexually abused as a child

In the trailer, a clip of Houston making a snide remark about Paula Abdul singing off-key captures a casual harshness familiar to all. The trailer for Whitney places "heart" as a pivotal point in the documentary, which is appropriate, as it is the first Whitney Houston documentary to be made with the permission of the Houston family estate.

Released Wednesday morning - just ahead of Whitney's out-of-competition world premiere Thursday at the 2018 Cannes Film Festival - the extended preview features rare home movies and concert footage as well as intimate interviews with some of Houston's closest companions.

Later in the trailer, the diva's close friend and assistant Robyn Crawford, a woman Houston was rumored to be romantically linked to, is addressed. "Bobby was jealous", an unidentified voice observes. Another follows up, saying: "His heart was, he wanted to be on the stage. He wanted to be in the forefront, and eventually she stepped down to lift him up", says another witness to Whitney and Bobby's strained relationship. Crawford, on the other hand, declined to be interviewed for the film. Reid makes a bold statement in the trailer saying he wasn't aware of Houston's drug use.

"I never knew there was any addiction", Reid says, despite the longstanding stories about both Brown and Houston's struggle with drug abuse.

The film will also highlight Houston's relationship with her mother who was admittedly tough on her superstar daughter. "That girl is singing off key on the record". "And then Nicole sent me this article about Whitney's rendition of the 'Star Spangled Banner" and how that changed how the song has been understood and sung ever since" he explained. "She's someone who has had such a big impact on culture but is not taken seriously".

The Whitney Houston documentary, Whitney, won't hit screens until July 6, but judging from the hot-off-the-press trailer, it will be worth the wait.
