Thanks to the “Whitney” documentary, we found out that Dee Dee Warwick had allegedly molested both Whitney Houston and her brother, Gary. Apparently that tidbit was also news to Whitney’s mom, Cissy Houston, and Dee Dee’s sister, Dionne Warwick.
According to a statement released on behalf of Cissy and Dionne, they just found out about the molestation claims a couple of days before the film premiered in May at Cannees. Cissy said that while Dee Dee may have had “personal challenges,” the thought that she would’ve molested her cousins is “overwhelming and unfathomable.”
For the record, Whitney’s longtime assistant, Mary Jones, is the one who dropped that bomb. Since Dee Dee died in 2008, and Whitney passed away in 2012, Cissy said that it’s unfair to divulge knowledge that neither woman is here to “deny, refute, or affirm.”
