Cissy Houston feels shock and horror over Whitney being allegedly molested

Cissy Houston feels shock and horror over Whitney being allegedly molested. Cissy and Dionne Warwick released a statement about the allegations that Whitney was molested by Dionne’s sister and Whitney’s cousin, R&B singer Dee Dee Warwick. It reads in part, “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.” Read more of their statement here.
