The singer is adamant about protecting her sister.
Dionne Warwick is in complete denial of the abuse allegations that were made against her sister Dee Dee Warwick. Whitney, a bio pick about Whitney Houston's life, revealed that both the singer and her half-brother, Gary Houston, we molested when they were children.
Whitney's mother, Cissy Houston, trod carefully when commenting on the subject last month.
“We cannot, 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. … IF [Whitney] was molested I do not believe she would have wanted it to be revealed for the first time to thousands, maybe millions of people in a film.”
This time around, the singer is less gentle in her response when the subject was broached in her interview with Larry King.
"First of all, it’s totally hogwash. My sister would never, ever have done anything to do any harm to any child, especially within our family. For those lies to be perpetuated in this so-called documentary film, I think, is evil. […] I will never, and I mean this, ever forgive those who perpetuated this insanity.”
The full interview will air on August 15.
Both Whitney Houston and Dee Warwick have passed. The delicate matter might not ever be settled formally. Still, it is unfortunate that Gary Houston's testimony is being dismissed considering the trauma this type of abuse causes its victims. He is said to have been disowned by his mother after speaking his truth. A source closed to the family commented on the frayed relationship.
"Cissy called him and told him 'I'm cutting you out of my will,' and hung up the phone."
