MUSIC- American singer Whitney Houston was sexually abused as a child, a new documentary claims.

Kevin Macdonald’s documentary ‘Whitney’ was premiered at the Cannes Film Festival on Thursday.

It claims Whitney was abused as a child by her cousin, soul singer Dee Dee Warwick.

Houston died at the age of 48 on February 11, 2012, by accidentally drowning in her bathtub. Warwick had died in 2008.

Houston’s half-brother Gary Houston also says in the film that he was sexually abused between the ages of seven and nine by a female family member.
