Whitney Houston was abused by Dionne Warwick's late sister Dee-Dee, according to shocking claims in director Kevin Macdonald's new documentary, "Whitney (2018)".

Macdonald said that after watching footage of her for a few months, he realized that Houston reminded him of something.

Ms Jones mentioned the singer by no means instructed her mum Cissy Houston in regards to the abuse as a result of she felt "ashamed". "A predator is a predator is a predator.' If Cissy had known, she would have done something about it, because Cissy loves her children'".

Houston died in 2012 at 48 after drowning in a bathtub.

Dee Dee died in 2008.

MacDonald admitted: 'I interviewed Pat Houston and Gary Houston, who's Whitney's brother.

"I first began to suspect that there might be some kind of abuse involved before anyone had actually told me", he tells the outlet.

The police received almost 60 calls related to uprooted trees, fallen electricity polls and wall collapses across the region. The storm comes after a deadly thunderstorm claimed over 80 lives across five states on Sunday.

Whitney, which is directed by the Scottish film-maker Kevin Macdonald, premiered at the Cannes film festival on Thursday.

"She felt uncomfortable in her own skin in nearly every interview there was with her".

The doc features sit-downs with interviews with the man credited with discovering her and building her career, Clive Davis as well as former Epic Records CEO L.A. Reid who touches on the struggle of supporting Houston's extraordinary talent in the face of widely-reported drug use.

"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". Whitney also explores Houston's complicated relationship with her mother and highly publicized yoyo romance with Bobby Brown. She was a handsome woman, but she was never particularly sexy. Not necessarily in public, but I don't think that was a secret within the music industry. "The real story, as I dug deeper, had to do with her family, and to do with race, I suppose, and her childhood". The documentary called Whitney hits theaters on July 6.

The Guardian has contacted representatives of the Warwick family for comment on the allegations.
