In today’s E-Report: 

 

In other news, Whitney Houston fans might not be too comfortable with the recent “findings” that the legendary singer had (allegedly) been a victim of sexual abuse from her cousin, legendary singer, Dionne Warwick. The news has come as a shock to fans and many are commenting on Twitter about the news. Miss Warwick, has not made an official statement about the alleged accusations.

Here is what the Huffington Post is reporting:

Houston’s half-brother Gary Garland was first to tell Macdonald of the abuse and said he was molested as well, the director told Indiewire. Pat Houston, who was Houston’s sister-in-law and manager, corroborated the claim.

Macdonald said Houston’s aunt and longtime assistant Mary Jones later provided additional details of the abuse, which she said Houston had confided to her. It was Jones’ interview that changed the direction of the film at the last minute.

She told me Whitney’s point of view on this, and what Whitney had told her in detail, and how important she felt it was for understanding Whitney, but how scared everyone was to talk about it,” Macdonald told Deadline. “So, yeah, the film changed radically in the last weeks of editing it, which I guess, as a detective, is the result you want.”
