The late Whitney Houston does not seem to be much of a fan of Paula Abdul's singing and took a dig at her singing in a new documentary trailer release for an upcoming documentary. 

The documentary will be titled 'Whitney' and was released on Wednesday. It features some intimate moments that were captured of Houston with her loved ones.

The film is the first ever one to be sanctioned by the singer's estate. It also includes some never seen before moments of Houston including home movies, unreleased recordings, and interviews with those closest to her. 

In the trailer, Houston does not stop herself from sharing her thoughts on Paula Abdul who became famous in the 80s with hits like "Forever Your Girl," "Straight Up" and "Cold Hearted."

Houston is seeing saying, "One thing, Paula Abdul ain’t sh**. That girl is singing off-key on the record." 

The trailer also speaks about her relationship with her best friend Robyn Crawford and her ex-husband Bobby Brown. Bobby Brown confirmed that Whitney Houston was in a relationship with Robyn. In an interview with Us Magazine, he claims that he knew that Whitney was bisexual all along. 


"I know. We were married for 14 years. There are some things we talked about that were personal to us," Bobby said. "I really feel that if Robyn was accepted into Whitney's life, Whitney would still be alive today. She didn't have close friends with her anymore."

Bobby also claimed that Whitney's mother, Cissy Houston, never approved of her daughter's relationship with Robyn and even tried to have Robyn fired. Cissy wrote her own memoir, Remembering Whitney, and wrote that she never knew if Whitney and Robyn's relationship was more than platonic. 

In a 2013 episode of Oprah's Next Chapter, Cissy revealed that she "absolutely" would have a problem with her daughter being gay. Robyn never confirmed the relationship even after Whitney died in 2012. "I have never spoken about her until now. And she knew I wouldn't. She was a loyal friend, and she knew I was never going to be disloyal to her. I was never going to betray her," she wrote in a memorial piece in Esquire


"Now I can't believe that I'm never going to hug her or hear her laughter again. I loved her laughter, and that's what I miss most, that's what I miss already," she continued. "I just hope that she wasn't in pain and that she hadn't lost hope. She gave so much to so many people, I hope that she felt loved in return. She was the action, for such a long time. She's out of the action now. I hope she can finally rest.
