Despite claims from Gary Houston that allege Dee Dee Warwick molested him and his sister Whitney Houston, Dionne Warwick says it’s “totally hogwash”.
“I have tried to refrain from responding to that. First of all, it’s total hogwash. My sister would never, ever have done anything to do any harm to any child, especially within our family,” Warwick told Larry King Now in an upcoming interview. “And for those lies to be perpetuated in this so-called documentary film, I think it’s evil.”
That film the 77-year-old is referring to Whitney, the only movie approved by Houston’s estate. According to the film’s director Kevin MacDonald, Houston’s aunt Mary Jones also confirmed the accusations, “She decided this was the elephant in the room that nobody wanted to talk about, this was the thing that to her — she had a sister who had been abused in her childhood, and she felt so strongly that this was the thing that was the catalyst of so many things in Whitney’s life.”
Providing “never-before-seen performance and other video footage of the star, her family, fans and friends,” Cissy Houston, who was recently diagnosed with Dementia, Bobby Brown, Clive Davis and Kevin Costner also appeared in the movie while Pat Houston served as executive producer.
