Whitney Houston was one of the best most successful all time singers ever. Sadly at 48 years of age, in February 2012, the POP queen died by drowning in her hotel room, per her autopsy, which also showed cocaine among other drugs in her system.

 

Since then, in 2015, the singer’s life was turned into a Lifetime biopic, called Whitney, directed by Angela Bassett. The family apparently had no idea and did not give consent for the go ahead of the film.

 

Sister-in-law Pat Houston wrote “You should not be surprised that someone decided to do a made-for-TV biopic. And, I might add, without the family’s blessing and despite her mother’s request to not do this movie. It happens every day.” With that said it’s not certain whether Houston’s family have any involvement in this forthcoming BBC2 documentary.

 

Nick Broomfield, who is the filmmaker behind Kurt & Courtney also Biggie & Tupac, is releasing and directing a documentary, set for BBC 2 also entitled, Whitney, which the network reveals.

The movie which “goes in search of the forces that made and then destroyed the singer who has been described as having one of the greatest voices of the last 50 years,” will revolve around Whitney’s drug battles which led to the increase of the singers rapid downhill spiral, according to Billboard.

 

Broomfield’s past documentary Kurt & Courtney was spun around crazy rumors that Courtney Love was somehow was involved in Cobain’s death. Whilst in Biggie and Tupac, Broomfield detailed that Suge Knight was behind the murders of both rappers, with help from members of the Los Angeles police department. Are we seeing a pattern of these docs here?
