It reportedly includes archival footage of the singer, as well as exclusive demo recordings, rare performances, audio archives, and original interviews with friends and family close to the late singer. "She felt uncomfortable in her personal pores and skin in almost each interview there was along with her", he advised Deadline.

Macdonald continued: 'She seemed kind of asexual in a odd way.

Her presence is still very much felt and this documentary seems like the flawless, or as close to ideal, representation of her truth.

Houston's half-brother, ex-NBA basketball player Gary Garland, alleges that he and Houston were sexually abused by Warwick, who died in 2008, when he was aged between seven and nine.

While poring through hundreds of hours of private home footage for his film, Macdonald told Vanity Fair that he had suspicions that something frightful had happened in Houston's life. The alleged incidents of abuse took place while her mother, gospel singer Cissy Houston was touring. "They wouldn't talk about it on camera, but they said Whitney had said to her that something had happened". A move that later on in his own memoir, Brown says, "I really feel that if Robyn was accepted into Whitney's life, Whitney would still be alive today".

"In the end, where the film ends up, it's not about [Crawford] and it's not about that relationship", Macdonald said. He said his sister was abused, too.

Houston's brother Gary Garland says in the film that "There were always a lot of secrets". Relatives admit oblivion and tears are shed, but her legacy is clarified. "She used to say, 'I wonder if I did something to make [Dee Dee] think I wanted her.' I said, 'Stop. And then, on the next interview, Gary did tell me who it was", he said. "It will lift the burden off you'".

"So many people I spoke to were just untruthful to me, just bullshitting".

Balancing the overall seriousness and somber tone of the trailer is a clip of Houston going in on another star of the times, Paula Abdul.

Dee Dee signed a record deal of her own with Mercury Records that same year.

"I think she will watch the film at some stage, but it's obviously up to her when she wants to do that".

The experience is the reason Houston insisted on taking her daughter Bobbi Kristina on the road with her, Jones said. "If Cissy had known, she would have done something about it, because Cissy loves her children".

No charges were ever filed against Dee Dee Warwick.

According to Macdonald, Cissy has been informed about the accusation and was "very upset".

Whitney Houston, the iconic singer who died tragically in 2012 on the eve of the Grammy Awards, was abused as an eight-year-old child by the sister of a famous singer.
