Whitney Houston died on 11 February 2012

The trailer for Whitney Houston's final film Sparkle has been released - and it poignantly shows the star looking at her best.

The singer, who was found drowned in a bathtub at LA's Beverly Hilton in February, plays the mum of three singers who struggle with fame and drug addiction.

The movie was intended to be part of Whitney's big comeback, but sadly a 48-hour partying binge led to her tragic death aged 48 on 11 February. 

Sparkle will be released in the UK later this year - but unfortunately there may be another film that could overshadow it. 

Her mum Cissy's been left distraught by rumours that Whitney's ex-boyfriend Ray J, 31, has sex tapes and explicit photos of the singer.

Toyboy Ray became infamous when his sex tape with Kim Kardashian was leaked in 2007 and he once boasted he made X-rated videos of 'every girl I can'.

His spokesman denies he has a tape of Whitney, but sources close to Cissy say she's 'very worried'.
