Whitney Houston Takes a Dig at Paula Abdul's Singing Abilities in New Documentary

The late singer doesn't appear to have been a fan of the former 'American Idol' judge.

The late Whitney Houston doesn't appear to have been a fan of Paula Abdul.

A new trailer for the upcoming documentary on the legendary singer titled Whitney was released on Wednesday, featuring intimate home footage of Houston with her loved ones. The film is the first to be officially sanctioned by the singer’s estate, and includes several never-before-seen moments of Houston -- including home movies, unreleased recordings and interviews with those closest to her -- to provide additional insight into the life of the beloved artist. 

At one point in the trailer, Houston doesn't hold back on her thoughts on Abdul, who rose to fame in the late '80s with hits like "Forever Your Girl," "Straight Up" and "Cold Hearted."

“One thing, Paula Abdul ain’t sh**,” Houston says. “That girl is singing off-key on the record.”

The trailer also touches on her relationships with her best friend, Robyn Crawford, as well as her ex-husband, Bobby Brown, addressing rumors head-on. Whitney hits theaters on July 6.

This isn't the first time the singer has been the subject of a documentary. Last August, Showtime released Whitney: Can I Be Me, which also chronicled Houston's incredible talent, rise to fame and subsequent struggles.

Houston was found unconscious in a bathtub at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in 2012, and her death was ruled as an accidental drowning, with heart disease and cocaine as contributors. She was 48 years old.
