According to, Cissy Houston has gone public with her disappointment in the development of the Lifetime biopic on her daughter Whitney Houston.

“Lifetime has chosen to go ahead with the movie about Whitney in spite of my family’s objections,” she said, according to ET Online. “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.

Houston failed in her attempts to stop production of the movie.
