Cissy Houston Blasts Whitney Biopic: 'Please Let Her Rest'

According to BET Centric, it's no secret that the Whitney Houston estate is fed up with the public trying to make a buck off the late singer's legacy. In the case of Lifetime's forthcoming biopic, those close to the star have tried their best to put a stop to the project.  While the film continues to move forward with Angela Bassett making her directorial debut, Whitney's mother Cissy Houston is speaking out about her frustrations with individuals going against her wishes.
In a statement to Entertainment Tonight, she said:
"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."
Yaya DaCosta is set to play Whitney alongside Arlen Escarpeta as Bobby Brown in a love story centered on the former couple's rocky relationship. It was previously announced that Deborah Cox will provide vocals for Whitney's biggest hits as "music rights and clearances are still being worked out."
