In 2012, the whole world was devastated upon getting to know the sad news: Whitney Houston, the beloved singer, died at 48 after drowning in a bathtub.

A new documentary about Houston titled Whitney made shocking allegations about the singer’s childhood. As it turns out, the late legend was sexually abused by her cousin – Dee Dee Warwick.

The woman died in 2008, so she can’t confirm or deny it. But there are people who believe Whitney was molested.

The singer’s half-brother, Gary Garland, opened up in one of recent interviews about being sexually abused by Warwick. And he believed his sister went through the same. Whitney’s aunt, Mary Jones, also confirmed these allegations.

The filmmaker of the documentary, Kevin Macdonald, had an idea of shooting it after watching old footages of the late star. As he said:

There was something about her discomfort in her own skin, something about the way she presents or hides herself, her lack of overt sexuality.

Last year, another documentary shed the light on many aspects of Huston’s life. The film Whitney: Can I Be Me contained never-before-seen footage and interviews with friends and family members.

According to the singer’s friends, Whitney experimented with drugs even when she was a teenager. When she gave birth to her daughter Bobbi Kristina, Houston desperately tried to get sober.
