Whitney Houston was reportedly molested by her cousin Dee Dee Warwick

Yikes! Friends of Whitney Houston allege the singer was molested as a child by her cousin Dee Dee Warwick in a documentary that premiered Thursday at the Cannes Film Festival.

According to Page Six, Whitney’s longtime assistant, Mary Jones, tells filmmaker Kevin Macdonald that the late singer told her that Warwick, the sister of Dionne Warwick, molested her at a young age. Houston’s brother Gary Garland-Houston also says he was molested between the ages of 7 and 9 by a female family member, and says his sister was abused too. Dee Dee Warwick, who was 18 years older than Whitney, died in 2008.

The allegations were made in the documentary Whitney, which was made with the cooperation of Houston’s family, Page Six reports. 

Mary Jones claims that the experience made Whitney question her own sexuality and contributed to her late-life drug problems. 

Whitney never spoke publicly about her own alleged abuse.

The legendary singer died at the age of 48 in 2012 from what was ruled an accidental drowning in a bathtub. A coroner’s report into her death cited heart disease and drug use as contributing factors.
