In the new Whitney documentary, in which director Kevin Macdonald interviewed over 70 of the music icon's closest family and friends, allegations are made that claim Whitney and her elder half-brother, Gary Garland, were molested by their cousin, Dee Dee Warwick, when they were children and that Whitney remained traumatized throughout adulthood. The abuse allegedly happened when Whitney was a young girl. Now, following the film's debut at the Cannes Film Festival earlier this year and recent theatrical release, Cissy Houston - Whitney's 84-year-old mother and Dee Dee's aunt - has issued a statement to PEOPLE slamming the project's depiction of her daughter's life.
"We can not 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", the statement continues.
