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". What's more, she said Houston named Warwick as the perpetrator. It's curious that Cissy appears only at the very start of the film, interviewed briefly in the very church where her daughter's funeral took place. In it, her brother Gary Houston is interviewed about Whitney. She enjoyed enormous success in the 1980s and 90s, selling more than 170 million albums and starring in the box-office smash movie The Bodyguard.
Dee Dee Warwick, who was 18 years older than Houston, died in 2008.
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. It also covers the depths Houston traveled to "lift up" her husband, Bobby Brown.

Asked who it was, she said Miss Houston replied: 'It was Dee Dee Warwick'.

She also alleged that Allen put a.22 caliber gun into her mouth and threatened to shoot her, forcing her to beg for her life. Ina Rogers, 31, entered the courtroom of Solano County Superior Court Judge William Pendergast flanked by loved ones.
Macdonald foreshadowed to EW how viewers would see the connection to Houston's family and how this influenced her sexual and romantic life. The first film being Nick Broomfield's Whitney: Can I Be Me released last fall. And I thought that was interesting.
One source close to the Warwick family said: 'Dee Dee was openly lesbian in the music industry.
