Whitney Houston’s Mother Expresses ‘Shock’ Over Alleged Abuse Claims
Houston’s mother says the allegations that her daughter and her son were molested by her niece are “unfathomable” and that she is shocked to even hear of it.
On behalf of herself and sister, singer Dionne Warwick, Cissy Houston told People magazine that they first learned of the claims two days before “Whitney” premiered back in May.
In the documentary, Whitney Houston’s longtime assistant revealed that the singer allegedly confided in her that her cousin Dee Dee Warwick molested her as a child and Whitney’s oldest brother also claimed he, too, was molested by her.
According to Page Six, in the statement, Cissy Houston says Dee Dee Warwick may have had her “personal challenges,” but the idea that she would have molested her children is “overwhelming and unfathomable.”
Dee Dee Warwick passed away in 2008 and Whitney Houston died in 2012 after she was discovered in a bathtub in her hotel room.
