Despite the movie's disapproval from late Whitney Houston's family last year, fans say Bassett did a fanstastic job!
The much anticipated biopic, "Whitney" is finally out and it didn't fall shot of fans' expectations at the cinemas after it premiered on Lifetime, January 17.
Whitney's daughter Bobbi Kristina slammed Bassett when she wasn't called up to be part of the cast. She even called the veteran actress 'a man' in a series of nasty Tweets
'Whitney' starts the legend singer’s story in 1989 when she meets estranged ex-husband Bobby Brown (played by Arlen Escarpeta), who asks a young Whitney (Yaya Dacosta) out. It’s pretty much love at first sight, but as we know, Whitney and Bobby’s high profile relationship crumbled in front of the public eye, as the film shows.
