Cissy Houston has expressed shocked on a new report that her son and daughter were molested by her niece, Dee Dee Warwick.
In a chat with People Magazine, Cissy Houston said the allegations are unfathomable.
On behalf of herself and sister, singer Dionne Warwick, Cissy Houston told PM 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.”
She died of drug abuse on the 18th of October 2008.
