Dionne Warwick defends her late sister
One of the most stunning things revealed in Whitney, the new documentary about the life and times of Whitney Houston, is that the late singer was allegedly sexually abused at a young age by cousin and singer Dee Dee Warwick. This was according to a “close confidante” of Houston.
Now Dionne Warwick, the sister of the late Dee Dee, is fighting back against those claims.
Dionne recently appeared on Larry King Now. The whole interview hasn’t released yet, but there is a clip. In it, Dionne says she was shocked by the allegations and calls them “hogwash,” saying:
My sister would never, ever have done anything to do any harm to any child, especially within our family…And for those lies to be perpetuated in this so-called documentary film [Whitney], I think it’s evil.
When details about the doc first started to leak, Cissy Houston, Whitney’s mother, also expressed doubts. In statement she said:
Dee Dee may have had her personal challenges but the idea that she would have molested my children is overwhelming and for us unfathomable. We cannot 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.
