The New Trailer for Forthcoming Whitney Documentary Will Give You Chills

Documentary alleges Whitney Houston was sexually abused as a child

Documentary alleges Whitney Houston was sexually abused as a child

The first trailer for "Whitney", a documentary premiering at the Cannes Film Festival and hitting theaters this summer, includes footage of Houston trashing Abdul's voice.

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.

In the preview, many familiar tabloid headlines are referenced as vignettes of Houston's life flash onscreen and a banner promises to reveal "the answers you never knew" to the "questions you want asked".

Whitney Houston apparently wasn't a fan of fellow diva Paula Abdul back in the day.

Drug addiction loomed large in Houston's life and contributed to her death, but in another gripping moment from the trailer, Reid denied he knew about the singer's struggle, despite working with her throughout the years. "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. "I just had a sense, having sat watching interviews about her, watching footage of her, I had a feeling that there was something wrong with her". 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.

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.

Whitney Houston broke more music industry records than any other female singer in history. I met Nicole David, her longtime agent, who was incredibly close to her.

"There were times when I looked up to God and I'd go, 'Why is this happening to me?'" Houston says in one scene, reflecting on her rise to celebrity and its downfalls. And I thought that was interesting. The movie hits USA theaters on July 6.
