Whitney cannot tell her story but there hasn't been anything provided to indicate she was gay:bi or shared romantic interest in Robyn. To focus on this topic as much as documentary did was highly misleading and misrepresentation of Whitney.

They could have made a great documentary, the idea itself was not bad at all, I am talking about the consequences of fame, people's high often too high expectations when you are the standard, the price you have to pay for being a good person among many people who want to use you and your money for their own benefit, the pressure of going on stage so often and wanting so hard to do as well as possible because you are a perfectionist and that's what your audience expects, all those double standards people use to explain Whitney's drug abuse and her contemporaries from the music industry or even normal nine to five people, that people love you and your money when you are on top but may soon turn on you, when people from your record label may want to gain money from your music more than you yourself do, when some fake fans leave you because you can't sing as flawlessly as you did in your prime, when you have no idea who to trust because almost everybody can sell you out, when people have no idea what you are facing because they are not you and not even in your stratosphere, when your own husband is jealous of your success while you are very supportive, when you are a very private person but people want to know everything about you and your private life, when they lie about you, so many things to cope with. She deserves nothing but love and respect in my opinion and that's what I want to give her.
Broomfield said he did not know much about Whitney when he started working on the documentary, he knew two things: Whitney was a crossover artist and Whitney paved the way for others, both are known even to people in their teens, shame somebody who had worked on a few documentaries about various musicans before he decided to work on Can I Be Me knew (and pretty much still knows) nothing about her.
He has given many interviews recently and he constantly talks nonsense, he decided to omit certain aspects of Whitney's life because it did not fit the agenda, he did not mention her relationships with men both before and after Bobby Brown, he did not mention her miscarriages which considering how much she loved children and her wanted to have more kids must have hurt her a lot, he did not mention the infamous "yacht incident" which resulted in we know what. According to Cissy Whitney was never the same afterwards.
Also a lot of nonsense about her "manufactured image", Whitney was not from the hood, she was born in Newark, NJ and they relocated to East Orange, NJ when she was four, she did not spend a lot of time with her peers because they did not like her and she was a loner, partially because she had different, better clothes, was sophisticated and classy unlike some of those kids. She went to a private Mount Saint Dominic Academy and spent a part of her childhood with Dionne Warwick, Aretha Franklin, Cissy Houstoun in the studio watching music legends in action, not in the hood.
Whitney's image (especially in the beginning of her career) was pretty similar to Dionne's, her outfits were similar to what Dionne had worn years before Whitney debuted, Arista Records wanted her to wear revealing outfits on her first tour but Cissy declined. She had started wearing those "more mature" outfits years before she even signed with Arista, so saying the idea came from people who worked for Arista is a complete nonsense.
Saying Arista had a complete control over Whitney's career is also a lie, when Whitney debuted and was new in the music business she listened to people who had decades of experience in the business, nothing wrong with it, sometimes she listened, sometimes she did not.
Clive did not want her to work with LaFace and wanted Babyface to work with Jennifer Holliday not with Whitney (Babyface mentioned it in his recent Pandora interview) but Whitney wanted to work with them and she did, some songs including the future lead single had been chosen before the infamous night at the 1989 Soul Train Music Awards happened, so saying I'm Your Baby Tonight was released because of the incident is another nonsense some people keep believing in.
They did not want her to go into acting because she could have flopped while releasing studio albums was much more profitable to the record label, she became a successful actress and a successful movie producer, they wanted her to record the entire Waiting to Exhale soundtrack but she did not want and she did not record the entire album.
Same about The Preacher's Wife, few supported the idea because gospel music and movies like The Preacher's Wife rarely meet with a big commercial success.
They did not want her to date and marry Bobby Brown and we all know what she did, unfortunately.
Broomfield was dragging people who keep repeating all those gossips about Whitney for years and called it "cheap sensationalism" but it is exactly what he is doing now.
He was dragging the estate for selling Whitney's stuff and using her name to earn money but it is exactly what he is doing now.
His assumptions regarding when Whitney's life became "messy" are also wrong and pretty much nothing he says regarding it is factual. That woman who left Whitney back in 2000 what according to Broomfield resulted in Whitney's life became a mess was doing drugs with Whitney, even before Nippy met that bum Brown, she came to Cissy in the late eighties to say Whitney "likes it a little too much" (it meaning the drugs), we all know when drugs addiction increased and it was Whitney who mentioned "every day thing", that woman was still around.
That former bodyguard, David Roberts mentioned the Waiting to Exhale "incident". Ellin LaVar mentioned somebody who "would encourage Whitney to be more involved in it (it meaning the drugs), Bobby was not even around Whitney at the time. LaVar also mentioned Whitney's struggles during that time, so it is not like everything was perfect before 2000 and then everything became a huge mess.
LaVar also mentioned that Whitney believed "her marriage was for lifetime" and that "she was going to do what it took to keep it together.”
She never saw anything more than a friendship between Whitney and her former personal assistant but her assumptions are what the media are reporting instead of being focused on Whitney's music, as usual she did not see anything but she "believes", just like Bobby Brown who was always jealous when Whitney was around men but never when she was with Pebbles, Brandy, Mariah Carey, Monica, CeCe Winans.
Bobby also denied those rumours on TV back in 2015, his story changed when he was about to release that trash Every Little Step, as usual he had to focus on controversies to sell that book about his irrelevant ass the GP left back in the eighties, the only exception being when he has some new "revelations" regarding Whitney or Bobbi Kristina to share.
