New Whitney Houston Doc Claims She Was Molested as a Child

"Whitney,"  a new documentary by Oscar-winning filmmaker Kevin MacDonald, explores the life of the late Whitney Houston.

It features interviews with family and footage of private moments throughout Houston's life.  It also dropped a  bit of a bombshell  about Houston's childhood that has never been publicly reported.

Houston's longtime assistant alleges in the documentary that Houston was molested as a young girl by her cousin Dee Dee Warwick.  The film premiered at the Cannes Film Festival on Wednesday, and Houston's longtime assistant and friend Mary Jones revealed the information in the final act of the film.

Macdonald  told Vanity Fair  about the revelation "We changed the whole cut at the very last minute.

It was kind of a detective story to get that piece of information, which changed how I felt about Whitney and how I felt about the story." Dee Dee Warwick was a soul and R&B vocalist.

Her sister, Dionne Warwick, is one of the most-charted female vocalists of all time.

Dee Dee Warwick died in 2008.

Her sister Dionne is still alive but  has not commented  on the alleged abuse.   Whitney Houston is widely regarded as one of the best vocalists of all time — her total record sales  topped 170 million  including her rendition of "I Will Always Love You" which went 4x platinum.

Houston died suddenly in 2012 at age 48.

She accidentally drowned in a hotel bathtub with traces of cocaine and several other drugs in her system.

The documentary also explores Whitney Houston's tumultuous relationship with Bobby Brown, her drug abuse and the tragic death of her daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown.

It premieres in U.S. theaters  on July 6 .
