Cissy Houston, mother of the late Whitney Houston, recently released her new memoir, Remembering Whitney. There’s just one problem: her granddaughter finds the book disrespectful.
Following the book’s release, Bobbi Kristina reacted on Twitter, where she explained to the public exactly how she feels. “I find it 2B Disrespect2MYMOTHER & me being HERDAUGHTER won’t tolerate it. I LOVEYOUALL for your support though & I thank you immensely,” she tweeted.
Cissy recently made an appearance on “Oprah’s Next Chapter” with Whitney’s older brother Michael. When Oprah Winfrey asked Cissy whether there was truth to the gossip that Bobbi objected to the book, Cissy said, "That’s what I heard."
The 19-year-old confirmed the rumors as truth and even said she won’t be reading the book. “ANYTHING concerning mygrandmothersBook•I& @nickdgordon OFCOURSE personally haveNOTHING2dowith• I ask youplsRESPECT tht•Haven’t read&won’t•,” Bobbi Kristina tweeted.
The tell-all memoir describes the “I Will Always Love You” singer through the good times and bad from her mother’s perspective. “Cissy’s book touched on a number of pressing issues including Whitney’s drug abuse, Whitney’s relationship with her best friend and executive assistant and her own feelings towards Bobby Brown,” Essence reported.
Though they both starred in Lifetime’s "The Houston Family Chronicles," that’s not to suggest Cissy and Bobbi have a great relationship. As a matter of fact, theirs could be compared to that of other reality-show co-stars. During the "Next Chapter" episode, the 79-year-old admitted that the relationship is “iffy” and they don’t communicate very often.
Bobbi Kristina, who is still receiving hate for her love choice, godbrother-turned-beau Nick Gordon, tries to keep her head high, despite all the negative attention and public interest. “But it’s all good & nothing but love, MYMOTHER taught ME better than that. (: xO,” she tweeted.
