Sad story of abuse and exploitation. Whitney left with different families growing up while mother Cissy Houston was working, allegedly cousin Dee Dee Warwick sexually molested her when Whitney was a young child; she was harassed as a child for being light-skinned, later Rev. Al Sharpton led "Boycott 'Whitey' Houston campaign"; film suggested that she may have become involved with Bobby Brown in part to counter criticism that she was "too white"; details Brown's abuse; her drug addiction is mocked on Saturday Night Live by Maya Rudolph, etc.; she is allegedly an "ATM" for family members, resulting in her not having enough money to complete needed rehab.
