Kim Kardashian Praises Whitney Houston Biopic Amid Co-Parenting Struggles
US TV star Kim Kardashian has praised Whitney Houston’s new biopic I Wanna Dance With Somebody and its star Naomi Ackie.
However, Kim, 42, was positively effervescent in her warm words about the film, gushing that her leading lady “FULLY embodied Whitney”.
Kim wrote on her Insta Stories this Saturday: “WOW, WHITNEY HOUSTON: I WANT TO DANCE WITH SOMEONE was so good.”
The reality TV superstar continued, “Love how they made it a celebration of Whitney’s life and Naomi Ackie COMPLETELY portrays Whitney.”
Kim, whose post came amid the film’s sluggish box office collections, plugged in, “You have to see it and in theaters for the best experience!”
One of the film’s producers is legendary record producer Clive Davis, who knew Whitney and is played on screen by Stanley Tucci.
Whitney, whose various drug problems have been widely documented over the years, died in the bath of her suite at the Beverly Hilton before the Grammys in 2012.
Hours later, Clive Davis performed his annual pre-Grammy party at the Beverly Hilton, just four floors below where Whitney died.
Meanwhile, Kim is co-parenting four children with her ex-husband, Whitney music star Kanye West, who saw his career implode and his billion-dollar fortune crumble last year after a series of anti-Semitic outbursts.
