Whitney’s Mom, Cissy Houston, Reportedly Disowns Son, Outraged Over His Claims
There’s so much drama going on with the Houston fam’ right now. Just weeks after the release of the family documentary about Whitney, there are more skeletons that have come out of the closet. In recent weeks, you’ve probably heard about the molestation accusations Gary Houston (pictured below with Cissy) confirmed indirectly through the film and by way of Pat Houston, his wife.
Many of the late singer’s close friends and family members spoke about her life during the “Whitney” documentary film, but Gary’s claims are what people are really talkin’ about. For those who haven’t seen the film, he says he and his sister were molested by their now deceased cousin, and Dionne Warwick’s sister, Dee Dee Warwick. Needless to say, the claims have led to a media firestorm. Now, reports are revealing Cissy Houston’s reaction to the drama. If the latest reports are true, the Houston family may never be the same.
According to EURWeb, insiders claim Cissy Houston has disowned her son over the allegations he’s reportedly made public. The insider has detailed a call Cissy allegedly made to her son, telling him she’d be “cutting him out of her well.”
If the drastic decision is true, that basically means she no longer wants anything to do with her son: “Cissy called him and told him ‘I’m cutting you out of my will,’ and hung up the phone,” said the source.
Does The Family Believe Gary?:
As expected, the claims have led to tons of questions from fans, friends, and even members of the Houston family. So, does the family believe Gary’s claims? According to the insider, Gary is standing alone these days, because reportedly, no one believes his statements. Since he opened up about the situation during the film, many of their family members are accusing him of making the statements for the sake of publicly to draw attention to the film. “Gary never brought up these accusations before and the family doesn’t believe him,” said the source. “They think it was used to just drum up publicity for the film.”
However, Whitney’s friend and longtime assistant, Mary, also revealed that Whitney confided in her about the molestation that she reportedly endured at the hands of Dee Dee Warwick. Not sure what the truth is, but there is no doubt that the Houston siblings had deep rooted issues that ultimately led them to drug addiction.
What Would Whitney Have Wanted?
Since the release of Whitney’s latest documentary, fans have all asked the same question: Is all of this what Whitney would have wanted? Amid the allegations, Cissy Houston and Dionne Warwick have reacted to the situation and both have expressed “shock.” Although Gary and Whitney are Cissy’s children, her sentiments are quite similar to Dionne’s. Both women find the allegations hard to believe. In a recent statement, Cissy angrily spoke about her daughter and the private issues in her life that she chose to make public. Cissy admitted that although her daughter did open up about her personal life from time to time, she thinks that this type of situation is something Whitney likely would not have made public:
“Although she spoke about her struggle with drugs, the interventions, her daughter Krissi and issues in her marriage, she never PUBLICLY spoke about her father’s stealing from her or revealed any claim that she had been molested,” Cissy noted in her statement. “IF she 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.”
Gary Houston has yet to speak out about the situation, but since he talked about it in the film, he’ll likely be speaking about it again in the near future.
