Cissy Houston Addresses Whitney Houston Molestation Claims


Earlier this year Pat Houston produced a documentary about Whitney Houston that contained shocking revelations that Whitney had been molested by her cousin Dionne Warwick's younger sister Dee Dee [click here if you missed that].

Whitney Houston's mother Cissy addresses the allegations....

Cissy tells People Magazine
My niece Dionne Warwick and I make this statement to raise our voices above the din surrounding the release of the film, Whitney. Although the film is marketed as a Houston Family approved/endorsed project, neither my son, Michael, Dionne nor I knew of the allegations of abuse, the direction the film would take, until two days before the screening at Cannes.
To begin we want to state clearly that the horror of what victims of sexual abuse experience is unimaginable. We make no attempt to minimize the pain, the trauma and perhaps lifelong damage to the psyche of abuse victims. We understand and acknowledge that there are no rules governing a person’s reaction to trauma and every person reacts differently. By this statement we do not intend to defend, condone or excuse the crime of molestation.
We cannot, however, overstate the shock and horror we feel and the difficulty we have believing that my niece Dee Dee Warwick (Dionne’s sister) molested two of my three children.
I’ve been told—as justification for the invasive theme of this film—that Whitney was a public person and therefore the public has a right to know any and everything about her. I say, NO, she was a famous person … a singer, an actress, a quiet but generous philanthropist. She wasn’t running for office, asking for money or trying to win the right to run anyone’s life. Her job does not entitle the “public” to know every intimate detail of her life beyond what she herself revealed during her lifetime. Although she spoke about her struggle with drugs, the interventions, her daughter Krissi and issues in her marriage, she never PUBLICLY spoke about her father’s stealing from her or revealed any claim that she had been molested. IF she was molested I do not believe she would have wanted it to be revealed for the first time to thousands, maybe millions of people in a film.
I know the woman who was identified as Whitney’s “close confidante”. If she was my daughter’s “close confidante” it would seem she chose to betray Whitney’s confidence by publicizing rumors and hearsay. In any case Dionne, Michael and I do not know her the way we knew and loved Dee Dee Warwick. Dee Dee may have had her personal challenges but the idea that she would have molested my children is overwhelming and for us unfathomable. We cannot reconcile the Public’s need to know about Whitney’s life as justification for invasion of her privacy or the charge against Dee Dee, a charge which neither Whitney nor Dee Dee is here to deny, refute or affirm. Neither I, Dionne, nor my son Michael who was very close to his sister, and in the film is VERY candid about their drug use, has ever heard these allegations; we have never heard anything remotely connected to the crimes charged against Dee Dee in the film. How can that be fair to my daughter, to Dee Dee, or to our family?
I spent many years in recording studios (sometimes with Dionne and/or Dee Dee) where I earned my living. I also went “on the road” with my group The Sweet Inspirations to try to help provide a good life for my family BUT my children always came first in my heart and in my life. When I was away they did not stay with four or five different families; they stayed at home where their longtime babysitter, Phyllis, or my dear friend Bae or their father took care of them. In all the years I traveled Dee Dee, who was 21 years older than Whitney, NEVER BABYSAT for them.

So sad to see Whitney exploited in life and in death. She had a bullseye on her back and people have taken and taken from her all of her life and now in death, they're still taking.

Didn't Michael Houston also molest Whitney and then Bobbi Kristina when she was a little girl giving Bobbi Kristina VD??? Cissy tried to deny that mess too.

Wait isn't Whitney's other brother a CONVICTED child molester? Is the absentee mother assuming that the convict brother didn't touch Whitney either.

This so called mother spent most of her time on the road as a back up singer for Elvis and Luther Vandross, to name a few. She wasn't watching or raising those kids... other family members were violating her children and introducing them to drugs, while she was pursuing her career.

Cissy needs to shut the fuck up.

Cissy and Dionne have NO FUCKIN" idea what went on. I believe Whitney was molested. I don't believe shitty ass Pat had the right to divulge the info.

Whitney behaved liked a victim of molestation, in the people she trusted. She just didn't have the skills to surround herself with decent people.

And the way Cissy is handling this tells me Whitney had no one to turn to for help anyway. And fuck Dionne. You know your siblings.

I have a sister who married a child molester. I don't fuck with her and her family at all. Nasty ass self.
