Cissy Houston is against Rihanna playing Whitney in a biopic

After the unfortunate death of Whitney Houston, rumors began to spin that a biopic would be made to celebrate Whitney’s life as a singer, actress, producer and model. Once the news went viral, pop artist Rihanna made it known she would love the opportunity to play the leading role of Whitney. However, when Cissy (Whitney’s mother) heard the news, she put her foot down according to The National Enquirer. A source close to Cissy says Rihanna has a lot of the same bad habits Whitney did. “Cissy believes Rihanna celebrates everything she hated about Whitney’s life—the drugging, the boxing, the abusive relationship.” According to sources Cissy doesn’t want someone like Rihanna representing her daughter. In fact Cissy is reportedly against any biopic being made about her daughter without the family’s involvement.  ~Krystin Edgerton

    Why do they have to make a movie out of everything?! Why cant they just leave it alone and let her rest in peace

    Yeah she wants the family involvement cause they dont want anything about her dark side featured in the film. Wake up!! Like it or not it was 80% of her life.

    No they want to be involved so they can reap the benefits and make money!

    Have you considered the fact that maybe they just want to go on living their lives in peace without dealing with the publicity twisting their words around?

    I wonder which family member would get the most money out of this… Parents? Daughter? BOOBY BROWN?

    First Whitney’s death was NOT unfortunate. She was a drug addict given every opportunity to quit.

    Second Cissy is correct that Rihanna’s life parallels her daughter’s too much.

    Third, let’s not mix words here. Cissy (and the family) stand to make money pimping her dead daughter’s life.
