She also says Mary Jones, Houston's longtime assistant who reveals in the film Houston told her of Dee Dee's alleged behavior, "chose to betray Whitney's confidence by publicizing rumors and hearsay", and that the idea "the idea that [Dee Dee] would have molested [her] children is overwhelming and for us unfathomable".
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. While both advocate for children of abuse, they said that "neither Whitney nor Dee Dee are here to deny, refute or affirm". Whitney Houston never told her mother and may have been ashamed.
Needless to say, Whitney's mother Cissy Houston found the film's allegations harmful and hard to believe. Jones said that the singer once confided in her about the abuse she and her brother endured at the hands of Dee Dee. "We can not, 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", the joint statement released Wednesday by Cissy and soul singer Dionne Warwick reads.
