Whitney retreated from the spotlight after a controversial 2002 interview with Diane Sawyer.
In 2003, she faced more media attention after calling 911 to report that her husband hit her. The police report said Whitney had a bruised cheek and a cut inside her upper lip. Still, she refused to press charges. He was not convicted and has publicly denied ever hitting her.
The couple went public once again in 2005 on Bravo's reality show Being Bobby Brown.
Whitney has stayed silent about it all—until now. Back with her first album in seven years, I Look to You, she's sitting down with Oprah and opening up like never before about her past, present and bright future.
