Whitney Houston's mother 'exhausted' by misinformation

WHITNEY Houston's mother is "exhausted" by the misinformation surrounding her late daughter.

Cissy Houston is furious that Lifetime are creating a biopic depicting the legendary singer's rocky relationship with ex-husband Bobby Brown and thinks everyone should let her daughter rest in peace.

Speaking 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."

The Lifetime movie is set for release in 2015 and will see Oscar-nominated actress Angela Basset - who starred opposite Whitney in the 1995 picture 'Waiting to Exhale' - make her directorial debut.

However, the singer's loved ones are reportedly planning their own big screen movie in the style of Michael Jackson's 'This Is It', which they feel would be a more fitting tribute to the musical icon, who accidentally drowned in February 2012 in her Beverly Hilton hotel suite, with heart disease and cocaine use listed as contributing factors.
