Legendary icon Whitney Houston’s presence is still missed by many, as the singer’s voice and hits still live on. With the loss of her daughter, the tragedy of Whitney Houston and Bobbi Kristina gained a life of its own and now, Lifetime is releasing a new documentary that promises to give us even more insight than ever before.
With a number of projects on the horizon, soon fans will be treated to an abundance of Houston material. The singer’s complicated life has intersected many, including her now-deceased daughter. Bobbi Kristina hauntingly died in the same way as her mother and others sat down with Lifetime to discuss the details of their mother/daughter relationship.
It’s sure to be an inside look into another aspect of Houston’s life that we weren’t privy to over the years, like we were with her relationship with ex-husband Bobby Brown. The two at one point had a hit reality show that showed the hitmaking pair in a new casual light that hadn’t been seen of Houston.
Recently, producer Hitmaka shared his own story about the infamous singer, and how her rumored relationship with singer Ray J was something that he saw in his own way, with his own eyes. It was a story that none had heard before, which of course, fans latched on to immediately.
Sitting down with The Drink Champs podcast earlier this month, Hitmaka recalled a story in which he got to meet the real Whitney Houston while she was around the younger Ray J, and how it became much more awkward later in the evening.
“We in Atlanta, we’re staying at this hotel,” he shared. “We have a show at Compound Nightclub. So, I go get into the car with Ray and Whitney Houston is in the car with us. Whitney was a Gangsta though, she was a real [N-word] … Me and Whitney throwing back patron, she chain-smoking squares. It was a vibe.”
“I go in the room, Whitney Houston taking her pants off. I walk in the room, like she getting naked in Ray J’s room and she like, ‘Get out of here, Yung Berg!’ And I’m like, ‘Oh my God, I’m sorry’ and I ran out of the room,” he said.
Whitney’s “gangsta” side definitely comes from her upbringing in New Jersey, as many have always shared that Whitney had a penchant for “realness” underneath her “pop princess” sheen that was plastered onto her early on in her career.
The just released trailer for Whitney Houston & Bobbi Kristina: Didn’t We Almost Have It All seems to offer a nugget about her upbringing that may shed even more light on why Whitney was so “real.”
Releasing February 6th, 2021, the documentary highlights the “parallel lives of renowned singer Whitney Houston and her daughter Bobbi Kristina”, according to the press release. In the trailer, one individual is heard stating, “When she was younger, she was made to do a lot of not so good things. It was sick” Although the trailer didn’t go into detail, hopefully the documentary provides full context.
