The movie entitled “Whitney,” which hits theaters in July, debuted at the Cannes Film Festival in France on Wednesday, and in a recent IndieWire interview, the director Kevin Macdonald talked about the sexual abuse allegations. 

“Gary the brother told me he was abused by Dee Dee,” he said. “So it’s not allegations. He’s saying I was abused by this person and told me, ‘I think she abused Whitney.’”

Want to know more Dee Dee Warwick? Here are five things you should know. 

She was born into a family of singers.

Born Delia Juanita Warrick, the singer was raised in Newark, New Jersey. She is the younger sister of Grammy-award winning singer Dionne Warwick, whose hits include “Walk On By” and “Say A Little Prayer.”

In her teens, she began singing with her sister and their aunt Cissy, Whitney Houston’s mother, in church. They eventually became a gospel trio called Gospelaires and were recruited by a record producer after a performance at the Apollo Theater in New York. 

Warwick sang backup for Aretha Franklin and others.

As a teen, she sang for stars including Aretha Franklin, Wilson Pickett and even her sister Dionne. She also sang solo. After leaving the gospel group, she recorded a version of “I’m Gonna Make You Love Me,” which was later covered by Diana Ross and the Supremes and The Temptations and peaked at No. 2 on the Hot 100.

She launched a solo career in her late teens. 

By the 1960s, she officially began to pursue solo endeavors. Her first recordings included songs such as “You’re No Good” and “I (Who Have Nothing).” In 1965, she signed a deal with Mercury Records and found success with the tunes “We’re Doing Fine,” “Foolish Fool” and “She Didn’t Know (She Kept on Talking).”

She also made some TV appearances. The starlet sang alongside her sister on NBC’s Hullabaloo and as a solo act on the TV show Shivaree. 

She was reportedly one of the first openly gay women in the music industry.

The Telegraph reported she was open about her sexuality. 

“Dee Dee was openly lesbian in the music industry,” one anonymous source close to the Warwick family told the publication. “Not necessarily in public, but I don’t think that was a secret within the music industry. And that was a detriment to her development also, because she didn’t hide it within the music industry. She didn’t.”

The singer battled with substance abuse. 

She battled drug addiction for much of her life, and in 2008, she died in a New Jersey nursing home at the age of 63. Her sister was reportedly by her side.

Craig Luttman told the Omaha World-Herald he saw the 8-week-old squirrels in a tree outside his home in Elkhorn and described it as a “tug of war” as they tried to get free.

The squirrels became tangled after getting caught in tree sap while they were in their nest, the Omaha World-Herald reports

The Nebraska Humane Society said the squirrels were moving as a unit with their tails tangled together.

Animal control officers transported them to Nebraska Wildlife Rehab Inc. and were able to untangle the group at their center in Fort Calhoun.

The group’s executive director told the Omaha World-Herald she had to give the squirrels a mild painkiller and covered them with a towel to keep them calm. She described untangling the six tails to snipping away at a “ball of knotted twine,” which took about an hour. 

Apparently, “several” sightings or cases of this kind have been reported, according to the Nebraska Humane Society

Kids become best of friends during flight, hold hands through airport

It started with a flight like any other. Two kids met on a flight to Flint, Michigan from St. Petersburg, Florida. The kids didn’t know each other, but they appeared to be the best of friends in a now-viral photo that was posted last week, WNEM reported.

They walked through the airport after the flight hand in hand. 

“It’s kids being kids,” Kenya Menzies, Shauntay’s mom, told WNEM. “When left to their own devices everybody is naturally nice.”

Nicole McCluskey, Kendall’s mother couldn’t agree more, telling WNEM, “It just tells you that we do need more good in the world and this was a prime example and gives us hope.”

“All the bad stories and bad things we hear it’s just nice to see something pure and innocent,” Menzies added.

With the help of Allegiant Air, the two friends met up this week in the terminal, which gave both families a gift of $100 off their next flights and free parking at the Flint airport, WNEM reported.

Microsoft’s Xbox adaptive controller for gamers with disabilities to be released this year

Microsoft’s Xbox Adaptive Controller designed for people with disabilities will launch later this year, company officials announced Wednesday. 

>> Read more trending news

The device can be used to play Xbox One and Windows 10 PC games. It also supports Xbox wireless controller features, including remapping.

When it goes on sale, the adaptive controller will cost $99.99, according to Microsoft officials

A select group of gamers were invited to test the device, Verge reports. The gamers said the controller makes it easier to create different setups for multiple games, allowing them to jump back and forth easily. 

The new controller can be connected to external buttons, switches and joysticks with mounts that allow flexibility to customize to a player’s needs. 

Gamers can also set up three different gaming profiles on the controller and don’t need to reset the device every time they switch games, which is common among modified controllers.

The product’s packaging includes several jacks on the back of the device to help people with dexterity challenges. 

The controller’s rectangular shape is designed to sit in a player’s lap comfortably, so it doesn’t drop or force them to sit in an uncomfortable position. 

The adaptive controller also includes threaded inserts that can be attached to a wheelchair, lap board or desk. 

The edges of the controller are also rounded out to avoid injury if the controller is dropped on a foot, and the front edge is softer, so players can slide their hands into the device to rest comfortably without having to lift it. 

Microsoft has been working on an adaptive controller since 2014, after a Microsoft engineer found a Twitter photo of a custom gaming controller created by Warfighter Engaged, a nonprofit organization that helps get wounded veterans access to gaming.

According to Microsoft, the organization’s founder described how difficult it was for amputees, quadriplegics and vets with traumatic brain injuries to access game controllers, and it inspired a group of team members to help make Microsoft’s controllers accessible to more people.

Queen Elizabeth: What happens when the queen of England dies?

Queen Elizabeth, the longest-ruling monarch in the history of England turned 92 last month.

While she has enjoyed excellent health during her life, no one lives forever.

A story published in The Guardian last year laid out in detail what will happen when the queen dies. No one interviewed in the story would go on the record with the details, so guarded is the plan.

>> Read more trending news

Obviously, there is a plan, one scripted down to the minute in parts. Here are some of the details for the minutes, hours and days after Elizabeth’s death.

1. Prince Charles immediately becomes king. While the coronation for a monarch takes place months after he or she assumes the throne, the country requires a ruler and on the death of a queen or king, his or her successor is automatically the monarch. His siblings will kiss his ring soon after the queen’s death.

2. The queen’s private secretary will inform the prime minister of her passing. A secret code phrase (many believe it is “London Bridge Down”) will be used to alert the governments of 15 other countries of which the queen is the head of state. She is also the symbolic figurehead of 36 other nations.

Those governments will be notified as well.

3. The news will be shared with the world when the palace releases confirmation of the queen’s death to the British Press Association then other media outlets across the world.

4. At the moment the news is released to media outlets, a footman, dressed in mourning clothes, will pin a black-edged death announcement to the gates of Buckingham Palace.

5. The palace website will show a single-page announcement that is the same as the notice posted on the palace gate.

6. Parliament will be recalled. The thrones at the House of Lords – one for husband, Phillip, and one for the queen -- will be replaced with a chair that features a cushion with the outline of a crown on it.

7. All flags will be placed at half-staff and condolence books will be distributed throughout the country for anyone wishing to express sympathy may do so.

8. If the queen does not die at Buckingham Palace, her body will be brought there as soon as possible after her death. The coffin will be placed in the throne room of Buckingham Palace to lie in state.

9. Charles will make his first address as head of state on the evening of his mother’s death. At 11 a.m. on the following day, he will be proclaimed king of England. The Accession Council will hold a meeting to declare Charles king and will read a formal declaration to that end. Camilla, Charles’ wife, by law will become queen.

10. After the proclamation is read, trumpets will sound and a 41-gun salute will be fired off in Hyde Park near Buckingham Palace.

11. The new king will then go on a four-day tour of the country, attending services and meeting his subjects.

12. The queen will lie in state for four days at Buckingham Palace then will be moved to Westminster Hall to lie in state for another four days. Moving the body to Westminster will involve a military parade. The queen’s remains will reach Westminster at precisely 11 a.m. Big Ben will ring out at that moment. Mourners will be able to pay their respects 23 hours a day on those four days.

13. On the ninth day, the funeral will be held. Jewels placed on the coffin will be taken off and cleaned. Shops and business will be closed and much of the country will be off from work. The stock market will be closed.

Big Ben will strike at 9 a.m that morning, it’s hammer padded so the sound will be muffled. The queen’s service will be in Westminster Abbey – the first for a monarch since 1760. The Abbey holds 2,000 people. At 11 a.m. precisely, the coffin will reach the Abbey’s doors and activity in the country is to stand still and fall quiet.

Following the service, the coffin will be placed on a gun carriage and taken to a waiting hearse. The hearse will drive the queen’s body to Windsor Castle. She will be buried in the royal vault at the family chapel in a private service.

As her body is lowered into the vault, Charles will reach into a silver bowl and get a handful of red earth to drop onto the queen’s coffin.

Police report details events leading to T.I.’s arrest outside gated community

Atlanta rapper and actor T.I., who reinvented himself as an activist and political force after time in federal prison and years of trouble with the law, was arrested early Wednesday outside his gated community in Henry County, authorities said.

The music star, whose legal name is Clifford Harris Jr., was arrested after returning to the Eagle’s Landing Country Club community in Stockbridge, Georgia, around 4 a.m.

T.I., 37, said he observed the security guard, Euwan James, sleeping, according to the police report.

After T.I. woke up the guard and asked to be let in because he didn’t have his keys, James initially refused, the report states. James said T.I. started using profanity and yelled at him to open the gate, the report said. James eventually opened the gate and let T.I. in, but T.I. told police James wouldn’t give him his name or his supervisor’s name when asked. 

After T.I. parked his car at his home, he walked back to try to get James’ name, the report said. James said T.I. threatened him and said “come outside so we can deal with this man to man.”

The officer said in the report that he smelled “overwhelming” alcohol on T.I.’s breath, and that the rapper admitted he had a drink while walking back to the guard’s shack.

Police said that, at some point, T.I. called a friend who eventually joined him.

T.I. was arrested on misdemeanor charges of simple assault, disorderly conduct and public drunkenness. His friend, Marquinarius Holmes, 40, of Stockbridge, Georgia, was arrested on outstanding charges out of Clayton County and for not having proof of car insurance, the Sheriff’s Office told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

In a live Instagram video Thursday, T.I. addressed the arrest as “nonsense” and “small potatoes,” adding that God will take care of it. He appeared in the video while celebrating his son’s 10th birthday at his home.

Later Wednesday, he told TheBlast.com that law enforcement officers in the county are “white cops in a very white area.”

He was released from the Henry County Jail about 8 a.m. Wednesday after posting $2,250 bond. He did not appear before a judge.

In a statement to the AJC, attorney Steve Sadow said T.I. “was wrongfully arrested” and accused the guard of refusing him entry after the rapper’s wife confirmed he “should be let in immediately.”

According to Sadow, police were not interested in hearing T.I.’s side of the story when they arrived at the scene and “wrongfully chose to end the situation by arresting” him. Henry County police did not directly address the comments from T.I.’s attorney.

T.I.’s past encounters with the law are well-documented.

U.S. District Judge Charles Pannell Jr. sentenced him to a year and a day in prison for an October 2007 incident in which T.I. sent a bodyguard to purchase machine guns and silencers.

An extraordinary deal shaved nearly four years off a potential sentence, provided T.I. perform 1,000 hours of community service. The service included visits with schoolchildren to speak out against violence, gangs and drugs.

T.I. finished his time in prison and a halfway house and was still on probation when he was arrested Sept. 1, 2010, in Los Angeles.

He and his wife, R&B singer Tameka “Tiny” Cottle, were taken into custody during a traffic stop in West Hollywood in which deputies said they smelled a strong odor of marijuana from inside the car. They were soon released on bond.

Then-U.S. Attorney Sally Yates said she supported the initial deal and believed T.I. had reached large numbers of youth. But Yates told Pannell that the rapper already had submitted two diluted urine samples before his arrest and initially lied to a probation officer about the five pills of Ecstasy found in his pocket when he was arrested. After his arrest, T.I. tested positive for opiates, Yates said. Pannell sentenced him in October 2010 to 11 more months in prison.

After his release, T.I. turned his life around, lending his voice and celebrity to discussions about a growing number of police shootings of unarmed black men.

From 2011 to 2017, he and his family starred in the VH1 reality show “T.I. and Tiny: The Family Hustle.” For six seasons, show chronicled the rapper’s life at home with Cottle and their blended family.

T.I., whose legal name is Clifford Harris Jr., can be heard in the background repeatedly asking the guard for his name.

“I own property over here. You report to me, sir,” T.I. said.

According to police, the rapper was returning to a gated community where he lives in Eagles Landing around 4 a.m. Police said he didn’t have his key and the guard wouldn’t let him in.

“He showed up trying to get in, and I don’t know who he is and he started cursing at me,” the guard told the 911 dispatcher.

“What you’re doing, man, is making it worse. All that you’re doing is making it worse. You could’ve just said, ‘My bad,’ and we could’ve been on about our night. What you’re doing right now, man, you making it worse,” T.I. said. 

At some point during the argument, T.I. called a friend and the two of them argued with the guard, officials said.

The Henry County Police Department was called to the scene and T.I. and his friend were arrested.

According to police, T.I.’s friend had a warrant out for his arrest. T.I. was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct and public drunkenness. He was released after posting $2,250 bond.

In a statement, T.I.’s lawyer said he was wrongfully arrested.

“Tip was wrongfully arrested early (Wednesday) morning when he attempted to gain entrance into his gated community - where his wife ‘Tiny’ and his family reside. The guard was sound asleep when Tip arrived at the guardhouse. It took Tip some time to wake up the sleeping guard. Tip clearly identified himself and sought entry. The guard refused entry. Tip was in contact with ‘Tiny’ by phone and ‘Tiny’ confirmed that Tip should be let in immediately. The guard continued to refuse entry without justification. Words were exchanged and apparently the guard and/or a supervisor called the police. When the police arrived, they were not interested in hearing Tip’s side of the story and wrongfully chose to end the situation by arresting Tip.”

Pennsylvania teen develops ‘wet lung’ after vaping for 3 weeks, case study says

An 18-year-old Pennsylvania teen developed wet lung after smoking e-cigarettes for 3 weeks, according to a case study published Thursday in the medical journal Pediatrics.

This is the first recorded case of wet lung and acute respiratory distress as a result of smoking e-cigarettes as a teen, according to the report.

>> Read more trending news 

The teen was a waitress in rural Pennsylvania who was otherwise healthy, according to CNN. She was not identified in the report. 

The case authors report that she went to the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center after experiencing chest pain and difficulty breathing, but had no signs of a fever or a respiratory infection. 

She was eventually diagnosed with hypersensitivity pneumonitis, sometimes called wet lung. 

It is triggered by an allergic reaction to chemicals or dust and causes inflammation in the lungs, according to The American Lung Association

The woman developed respiratory failure and required a mechanical respirator to help her breathe again, said Dr. Daniel Weiner, one of the patient’s doctors who co-authored the report. 

She also needed tubes inserted in both sides of her chest to help drain her lungs.

After these emergency procedures, doctors said the woman’s health improved quickly.

The teen’s pediatrician and lead author of the study said he believes the chemicals in the e-cigarettes led to lung damage and inflammation, triggering an immune response in her body. 

Case authors advised wet lung should considered when diagnosing respiratory problems among e-cigarette users, and this case should prompt pediatricians to discuss the dangers of vaping with young patients.

Teen use of e-cigarettes appears to be growing rapidly, according to CNN.

2016 report from the U.S. Surgeon General cited a 900 percent increase in e-cigarette use by high school students from 2011 to 2015. 

The 2016 National Youth Tobacco Survey found that 1.7 million high school students admitted to using e-cigarettes in the previous 30 days.
