Who was whitney houston currently dating
Garland-Houston verifies that he was molested by a woman.
She is in her twenties, a sprightly pop star with lungs of gold.
Houston leans back on the hotel couch and grimaces. “That girl is singing off-key on the record.” It’s downright surreal witnessing young Whitney, who was in this early part of her career picture-perfect and hyper-competent at all times, lapse into vulnerability.
The moment, which occurs in a new documentary, reminds you how thickly the varnish of purity was painted over the fledgling star, how much was covered up. The work of Nick Broomfield (Kurt and Courtney), that movie—which was unauthorized—splices together archival footage with interviews of Houston’s family, friends, and entourage.
She was powdered in pink eyeshadow, touted as the happy child of happy parents, and trained to smile wide onscreen. It is straightforward about her drug abuse, and about the control exerted over her by her family and production team.
Cissy Houston reminds her daughter that she has a gift from God that Abdul will never have, and the young woman snuggles into her mom’s arms. Her brothers recall that they and Houston did drugs starting around the age of 10.
