The Angela Bassett directed Lifetime Networks biopic for the late Whitney Houston keeps facing a lot of criticism and a few setbacks.

First, the daughter of the R&B icon Bobbi Kristina lashed out at Angela for not picking her to play her mother and they can’t use original Whitney songs but a singer will have to make renditions which Yaya DaCosta the lead star will lip sync to.

Now Cissy Houston, Whitney’s mother is speaking out against the biopic, telling everyone to let her daughter rest.

Cissy released a statement on the made for TV movie;

“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.”

    Na wa ooo. Why are all these families acting like this, this shining lights were not only yours, they belonged to everybody who loved them enough to listen to their records and be inspired by it. If you think the producers and cast didn’t know her well, educate them then, show her to us, endear her more to our hearts even in her peaceful slumber. The crazy thing is even the family can’t know everything about her, and they would be telling her story from their individual point of view. Whitney is gone and we loved her, the biopic would not change where she is now, whether she in peace or not. But we hope it is in peace. As for that little brat, Bobbi, she has done nothing but embarrass her mom since her death
