Cissy Houston Speaks Out AGAINST Whitney Biopic

We already knew that Bobbi Kristina had a big problem with Lifetime’s upcoming biopic about her mother, but it turns out Whitney Houston‘s mother, Cissy Houston, is equally miffed about the movie.

She released a statement to Entertainment Weekly this week noting her disdain for the Angela Bassett-directed flick.

“Lifetime has chosen to go ahead with the movie about Whitney in spite of my family’s objections. No one connected with this movie knew Whitney or anything about her relationship with Bobby. In the two years since Whitney’s death, many people have stepped forward to speak about their close relationship with her. I find it difficult to believe people who knew and supposedly loved her would participate in a movie about her done by folks who didn’t know her. We are exhausted by the continuing misinformation and comments offered by people who did not know her. Please please let her rest,” she said.
