From director Kevin Macdonald ("Marley"), "Whitney", was executive produced by the Houston family and does not shy from the tragedy of the singer's drug abuse, emotional woe and the dizzying highs of her journey. That film lacked either the endorsement or extensive involvement of the Houston family, above all her mother, Cissy Houston, presented there as the main architect and oppressive controller of her fame.

Whitney Houston's ascent into the upper echelons of the music industry, alongside her tragic demise, will be recounted in the upcoming documentary aptly titled Whitney. Dee Dee is said to have struggled with narcotics addition and died in 2008, aged 63. The film, which debuted at the Cannes Film Festival, also explores Whitney upbringing, her scandal-ridden marriage Bobby Brown, and her drug addiction. 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. "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. In the three minute clip, Macdonald promises to answer all the "questions you want asked", namely about Houston's relationships with Brown and her longtime friend and rumored lover, Robyn Crawford. She was a attractive woman, but she was never particularly sexy.

The newspaper studies that within the movie Garland-Houston says he had been sexually abused "by a feminine relative" between the ages of seven and 9 however doesn't determine her. "She was the one person who loved her who really wanted to take part but didn't", Macdonald told to EW of Crawford.

"There were times when I'd look up to God and I'd go, 'Why is this happening to me?" she recalls in vintage footage.

EW has reached out to reps for Dionne Warwick and the filmmaker for further comment.

Whitney will be released in United Kingdom and USA cinemas on 6 July.
