The singer's half-brother, former National Basketball Association point guard Gary Garland-Houston said that both he and Houston were molested by their cousin as children. Though the possessor of an otherworldly voice, the parts of Houston's life not covered in the glitz of the stage are shown in measure; this is not limited to the scandals that surrounded her but reaches her everyday humanity.

It seems the producers held nothing back and dove deep into Houston's life to answer long-standing questions about her drug use, her turbulent marriage, and her relationship with Robyn Crawford who is referred to as her "safety net" in the trailer.

She recalls Miss Houston saying: 'Mary, I was [abused] too.

Houston, who enjoyed enormous success in the 1980s and 90s, selling millions of records and starring in the box-office hit film The Bodyguard, died in 2012 aged 48.

Officially sanctioned by Whitney's estate, it features the singer as she deals with her family life, fame, and struggles with drug addiction.

The first official trailer for Whitney has arrived and it's packed with information about the late, great, icon, Whitney Houston.

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.

But Miss Houston never told her mother Cissy Houston about the alleged abuse because she "was ashamed", according to her aunt. And I thought that was a very unusual thing, and it kind of reminded me of people I'd seen who had suffered from abuse, just in their body language and their sense of holding something back. and then somebody mentioned it off-camera to me.

She enjoyed a successful career as a soul singer in the 1960s and 70s but never matched the heights of her more illustrious sister.

Houston's brother Gary Garland says in the film that "There were always a lot of secrets". "She was the one person who loved her who really wanted to take part but didn't", Macdonald told to EW of Crawford. And I thought that was interesting.

EW has reached out to reps for Dionne Warwick and the filmmaker for further comment. The movie hits US theaters on July 6.

Sarah Rodman provided additional reporting for this story.
