The Box Houston Featured Video

The trailer for the new documentary based on the life of Whitney Houston lets you know it’s not holding anything back. The doc explains it reveals the true nature of Whitney’s relationship with her long time friend and rumored lover Robyn Crawford. The trailer refers that Robyn was the legendary singer’s safety net.

“There were always a lot of secrets,” Gary Houston reveals. “When you don’t resolve things or deal with things they never go away.”

Not featured in the trailer but revealed in the film is that Houston was molested by a family member when she was younger. Houston’s longtime assistant Mary Jones tells filmmaker Kevin Macdonald that the late singer told her that Warwick, the sister of Dionne Warwick, molested her at a young age. Houston’s brother Gary Garland-Houston also says he was molested between the ages of 7 and 9 by a female family member, and says his sister was abused too.

Dee Dee Warwick, who was 18 years older than Houston, died in 2008.
